Oh good grief, how have you not shot the cat yet?! I get it though, you probably feel about your cats like I do my pooches. I'm not really a cat person, I like them if they just mouse and leave me alone. I hope you get something figured out, don't know what to tell you to do but I'd have been done long before you.
Anna- Leash training dogs is hard. DH had to leash train our Boxer because he was walking all over me everytime I'd take him to the vets office. Now, he's so good that I took both dogs to the vets office while almost full term pregnant with Noah and it was a piece of cake. I need more pictures of Kole! He's getting so BIG, it's just not fair that they have to grow up so fast!
Jackie- wow, your productivity is making me tired. I'm going to go to bed
Leigh- Guess what I got tonight!!! A picture of my poochie!! He was so good and just stood still when I told him to.
Here's my Drago (long a) (John Wayne movie character)
Okay. DH is ruining all of his good things from earlier today. It's 2am and he's still playing video games online with buddies. He's so friggin loud that I can't sleep at all. I keep expecting Aiden to wake up. If he thinks I'm getting up in 4 hours with Aiden he's sadly mistaken. I've already informed him of this and he doesn't seem to care. Fine then. Stay up. Don't ***** tomorrow. And I'm sleeping in till lunch.
I am on my phone so I can't deal with responding to everyone I want to but I did read them all and there was a lot of laughing and eye rolling
Christa: what a cutie! Mine is Roscoe! (P. Coltrane--from Dukes of Hazzard, of course) and yes he has the exclamation point in his name. He's a boxer. Shouldn't they all have exclamation points?
(switched to computer for a second): Janice, I'd take the cats to the vet. Even if it IS behavioral, the vets can probably make some recommendations. Two years...possible that they're stressed by the baby? Cats are weird. Sorry you're dealing with that. I really hate one of my dogs sometimes, and I hate HAVING dogs a lot of the time because of the extra work and responsibility on top of everything else, but they're so good with Addy and Roscoe! at least has finally found his way back into my heart, so...I'll deal. I had a cat but he went to retire at my mom's when I was pregnant. I feel really lucky to have had that option, because I would never have gotten rid of him, but he is SO much happier over there, and we have less stress here. Our one trouble dog was not trustworthy alone with him, so when we left the house we had to lock him in the tiny office all day for his own safety. It wasn't fair to anyone.
So last night we went to SIL's and it was fine but we bailed pretty early (like 9:30) because we were so exhausted from yesterday. Addy goes to bed over there and we take her home asleep. She did wake up once around 12:30 or something like that--DH went in and did the SuperNanny thing and he said it worked well. Then she slept until 5:30. Yay! It was my morning to get up with her and DH is still sleeping, so I'm a little jealous but not too bad. I will take 5:30 at this point, and call it good!
Janice I doubt both cats would have a medical problem, however, i could see one having something wrong and the other just stressing and doing it too. My friends cat was doing this and it turned out he had a UTI. When cats do this they are mostly trying to tell you something. Do they do it in front of you? Which cat was doing it first, that is probably the one to take the to vet first.
So the real estate office called yesterday to schedule 2 showings for today. One between 9-9:30a and one at 3:45p. So this morning I took the kids and went grocery shopping. About 9:30am a guy from the R.E. office calls to let me know that the 10:30am showing is cancelled because of the heavy rain. Ummm, okay. Lets see if they got the 3:45 one right.
A note on the rain: We've had a minimum of 6 inches of rain in the last 2 days at my house! Amazing. Lets hope this signals the end of the drought!
Now to get these kids to take a nap so I can clean up a bit more.
