Okay, it’s true… I have nothing to write about. When in doubt, cats, right? I think that’s preferable than whining about coming down with what is surely the flu since that’s what Enzo has/had. The weather is equally dull and slightly depressing, so I’m not going to dwell on that either. Instead… cats. I think I’m starting to figure Vega out. Okay, maybe not the peeing thing… I still have no idea why she pees in my office and still have to keep the door shut, but at least she’s not doing it anywhere else?
That being said, it’s funny how differently she treats me from everyone else. Granted, Uzi and Ziggy have been around longer so they treat me and Josh pretty much the same, although Ziggy has a soft spot for Josh and his manly hands that give her a glorious belly rub. Vega is starting to treat him more the same, but she reserves more of her personality for me. She isn’t much of a talker, but will talk most often to me. She follows me into the bathroom almost every morning (much to Ziggy’s chagrin, as that’s her thing). She’ll meow at me and sometimes try and paw open the shower curtain. If I call for Josh or one of the kids, she’ll sometimes answer me instead. Haha!
My favorite, though, is that she treats me like a cat. I know exactly when she wants to play because she’ll chase me around like one of the cats until I grab a toy for her or play something else. She even grabs my legs when I walk by and last night she nipped at me. One day she’s going to kill us both when she tries to race me up the stairs, but it’s rather endearing nonetheless. She and Uzi play somewhat more frequently, but still not all that often, and Vega still enjoys sitting on Ziggy and snuggling and giving her a bath.
We’re all pretty happy with our big Lump. Okay, maybe not the other cats all the time (even if they are more spunky lately) and probably not the fish who she thinks are her own personal entertainment, but overall we like her. Now to get her to stop peeing in my office, destroying the carpet, and there you go! Cat family complete!
