weekend recap page




annie's been with us a week
 as of this past friday




 it was a week filled with chaos
 her adjustment to us 
has been 
one step forward two steps back

 the good news
 is
 that
 on sunday
 she ventured into the living room
 without
 a lot of drama 

leading up to that point
 however
 drama reigned

harry's so laid back 
nothing bothers him

 jack
 on the other hand
 has been feeling the need
 to let everyone know 
he's the top cat
 its his house
 he is the chief hisser
 his hissing and nastiness toward harry
 resulted
 in
 several
 very loud scary fights

 it got so that harry was hissing at jack for no reason
 no apparent reason 
but
 i think 
he was hissing
 'cause
 he remembered being bullied
 and
 needed
 to let jack know 
he had not forgotten 
the hissing 
the growling
 the chasing
 the attacks

 neither 
toonman nor i
 got a lot sleep this past week 

sunday morning 
i did get to sleep in 
it was a sleep filled with weird dreams
i even woke myself
 sunday morning
 by 
crying out

 i would tell you about the dream
 but
 it was so weird
 i am trying to forget it 

no there are no photos to share of the cats 
well except for this one



 harry's curled up 
against the radiator cover
dreaming
 i am sure
 of days
 without
 hissing growling and fighting

  1. sounds like an interesting weekend! Cats can be so funny (strange) about the pecking order and who is in charge. They should settle down soon I would think. You must finally be feeling better, now if you could just get some good sleep eh? I go through cycles like that too, little sleep and strange dreams, gah.

  2. Yes, indeed, I remember sleepless nights when my cats would be up raising all kinds of he**! I sure hope you are on the upside now...Annie sure is cute!

  4. It sounds like it's beginning to get sorted out. It's hard being the new one.

  5. Soon they will all be fast friends….or not. But at least your sleepless nights are hopefully behind you.

  7. There's a "cure" I've always wanted to try but haven't yet...lock the cats in the bathroom or other easily washable room. Open a can of tuna packed in oil and spoon the oil onto the backs of each of their necks. They can't reach it themselves so they have to lick it off of the other cats' necks. By the end they are supposed to be clean and relaxed around the others. Maybe try it with Harry and Annie? GOOD LUCK! :)

  8. Somebody new has sure upset the pecking order. Hopefully everybody will get used to their new place and peace will reign. At least for a little while.

  9. Quite a lot of drama! Annie looks sweet, and Harry's cute!

  10. Well, here's my take. If she's not peeing on furniture you're in the plus column.

    Crossing my fingers that it stays that way, and that you don't have any more weird dreams!!! xo.

  12. Oh boy oh boy! Just catching up after a weekend of no internet. I can sympathise because we had six dogs and two cats with us in the country. Cats and dogs were just fine. Dogs and dogs at mealtime...well...that's another story. There was a certain amount of snarling and snapping over bowls, but in the end, they all curled up together around the fire. Hope the cats are over the worst of the hissy fits. Big hugs.
