Purry Good [socs]

Stream of consciousness Saturday

I used to worry about how yelly my kitty was. Just my luck… someone who can’t bear repetitive sounds to end up with a cat who howls like a wolf, right? Migraine alert! ๐Ÿบ

I made up a joke for him. Gatsby, I would say, why might people think you’re from Idaho? He’d say maow (why?). Because you are a noisy Boise! I would laugh and laugh. He mostly did not. ๐Ÿฑ

But a funny thing has happened. G and I moved to a new apartment last week and the windows face a pool and spa, not a parking lot full of stray cats. They also have shutters that can be completely closed at night, unlike my old place. The upshot is that Gatsby has been sleeping all night without yowling at the windows. This also means that I get to sleep at night! โค๏ธ

Oh, he still meows and expresses himself, not to worry! He’s the same energetic ball of furry adorableness he ever was. And he’ll bite me as I’m getting ready for work… Mommy, don’t leave! ๐Ÿฅฐ Moving has not dimmed his light. I actually find him more lovable now that he’s quit shrieking (hopefully for good)… amazing how that works.

  3. Congrats on finding a new home that you like and with it, the lessening of your talkative kitty! ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Take away the stimulus (cats wandering around outside) and the response fixes itself.

  5. Yay sleep! ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ป
    Itty bitty is a yowler๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™„ mostly when he’s in the back room by himself (for a whole hour๐Ÿ™€), with his food and litter box and a gazillion toys. I guess he didnt get the memo that cats are supposed to be independent.

  9. Maddy was never much of a cuddle kitty until my ex-husband and his cat moved out. Now she likes to be wherever I am. Sometimes, though she still isn’t really a cuddle kitty, she’ll sleep in my lap. She usually sleeps on the back of my recliner when I’m in it, next to me (but not too close) in bed at night, and she loves to lie next to my left hand when I’m writing in my journal so I will pet her. She does love to be petted and always purrs and gives a little chirp when I reach behind me on the chair to pet her. She’s become the kitty companion I always wanted once it became just the two of us.
