I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

Cat Fights

Why do they always happen in the middle of the night or when you’re really on a roll and have to stop everything to go and break it up?  And it’s always on nights you can finally sleep because you’re so beat.

This just seems to be the nature of things at my house.  At the present time I’m down to three cats – all girls – and things aren’t always rosy between them.

For some reason Comet hates Koki and I have no idea why?  This all started a couple of years ago and now every time she sees her she pins her ears back and is in attack mode.  Koki is scared to death of her, so I’m thinking that Comet probably beat her up one day when we were both away from the house.  Since then, Koki who is my little shadow rarely comes upstairs anymore to camp out in my office when I’m working.  Comet will stand at the top of the stairs and dare her to even think about it.  I have no idea what went down between them, but it wasn’t always this way.

I know that Comet misses the boys very much.  They were her best buds and they hung out together all the time.  She has gotten very nasty with the other cats since their passing.  She knows she’s the oldest now so doesn’t let them ever forget she’s top cat around here.  Tootie just stays out of her way and Koki tries to, but there is at least one cat fight around here every week.

Unfortunately, this usually occurs in the middle of the night and it really disturbs my husband.  I wish Comet would knock it off because I can’t stand by with a water bottle to keep her in line 24 hours a day.  I’m sure they get into it all the time when we aren’t home anyway, so it’s disturbing to get shaken out of bed and told to go and take care of it in quick fashion when you don’t even have your wits about you and didn’t even hear the fight going on to start with.

Then once back in bed it takes me forever to get back to sleep, which I get so little of anyway being the insomniac I am.  But my husband will be fast asleep within 10 minutes, snoring away with the radio blaring because it has to be on every night.  I’m not sure how he can sleep with all that noise, but he can.

I like to listen to Coast to Coast too, but I turn it down really low and then off when I get drowsy.  But I wouldn’t trade any of the cats for anything because they are all very dear, even though there are moments they can drive you batty.  They probably just have to workout their little tiffs and nothing is ever so serious that it requires a vet visit.  Worst case scenario, there is cat hair everywhere to pick up in the morning.
