And I don’t just go accusing cats of being awful. It is not a word I throw around. Carnation has earned her “awful” status, with a series rotten actions. There are things that make her awful that are out of her control. And I give her a pass on those things. She has had digestive issues since Chris’ mom got her like 5 years ago, and a lot of times it causes her behind to be less than sparkling clean. Luckily, she is on the mend, after some quality time with the vet and a special (and expensive) new food.
But no, the things I cannot stand about this cat go far beyond the aggravation of cleaning up a butt pucker on the carpet every now and again. This cat and my other two cats don’t get along at all! Curious and Spunky can’t walk by her without a fair amount of hissing and growling. I think she is a fairly anxious cat, any type of loud noise sends her running. She is very antisocial, she wants to be fed and left alone. I’m good with that, she’s not here for my entertainment. I usually just let her be, pet her when she acts like she wants me to, and go on about my business.
But this morning, she did something that cannot be forgiven. She interrupted my sleep! We sleep with the door closed, because Spunky likes to chew cords when we are not there to supervise him. So usually we are able to sleep without kitties nudging us awake wanting pets or foods. But for some reason, at 5-freaking-o’clock, Carnation and another of our amazing cats (we are unsure which) decided to have a loud screeching fight.
I’ve never willingly woken up at 5 in the morning. I think that’s something crazy people do, and I am certainly not crazy!
I want her to get better, and become a happy part of this little family. I don’t really know what to do to make that happen though. I feel like she is beyond my help. I’m at my wits’ end here!
Sure she looks cute and innocent, but trust me, she isn’t!
