See this darling, sweet, precious little kitty?
I am going to KILL her.
The past week or so, she has started coming into our room in the middle of the night and meowing at the TOP of her lungs. This doesn't last for a minute or two. Oh no! Not Lily the Over Acheiver. She does this for well over an hour.
Even after Carl and I chase her out of the room (she comes back)... throw a shoe at her (she gets under the bench and continues)... or pick her up to love on her (she wants more).
She has everything she needs - food, water, clean litter.
SHUT IT, Lily!
The other night I got up while she was in the throes of her cries and found one of J-man's rubber snakes at her feet. I thought she was bringing me a gift and asking for approval so I thanked her, loved her up and put her back down on the floor.
She was calm for a minute or two, then she jumped on the bed with a muffled mew. I looked and she had the rubber snake in her mouth and had brought it up with her. I am so glad I knew it was fake.
I can understand her doing it on weekends when we sleep in. She is a creature of habit and waiting until 7 when she is used to getting attention at 5 is a big deal for her. She starts around 6:30 trying to wake us up with the cries and the head butting. But this? Every night?
What could be wrong? How can we get her to stop!?! Don't say shoot her... trust me, Carl has threatened that. (He wouldn't do it)
