NaBloPoMo Day 4

Wow. This is harder than I thought… getting a post in before midnight. I just looked at the clock and panicked!!!

I really need to get myself organized with this because again, I’m just writing whatever comes to mind.

I awoke this morning to loud crashing noises. No, not noise… noises. Plural. Something caused Addycat to go crazy. She was tearing through the house, knocking things off nightstands and end tables and the kitchen counter

I got up to find out what was going on of course, but only found the wild-eyed feline sitting in the living room, staring at a blank wall. I made sure she had food and water, petted her a bit, then went back to bed.

I drifted back off for a few minutes, only to be awakened again… this time Addycat was walking on me. Not walking over me… walking ON me, on my legs, my stomach, my chest,  my face and back. She’s never done that before… it was very strange.

She’s very sensitive to when I’m feeling really sick or when I’m upset. She’s never been a lap cat, but when she knows I’m not well she never leaves my side. She will follow me everywhere and lay with me in bed until I get up.

She’s very special to me. I can’t imagine life without her. She’s my Therapy Cat!

I Think I Have a Dog Living in a Cat’s Body…

Yes, it’s true. Addy acts very dog-like. She scratches at the door when she wants to go outside. She comes back in when we whistle for her. She plays fetch with her favorite shoestrings and actually brings them back to us. If the doorbell rings, she runs right to the door. She loves hot cheetos and spicy cheezits. (not sure if that is a dog-like quality but I’m throwing it in there anyway).

She sleeps on my feet at night and is by my side everywhere I go (while I am inside or near the house outside). She acts very protective of me. She is a very important part of my family but she is the strangest cat I’ve ever owned!

Do you have a cat who displays dog-like behaviors? If so, in what ways? Kat
