So I’m a night owl and usually go to bed at 1 or 2 am and sleep for 10 hours. That’s how I function and makes me happy. Dac thinks that is WAY to long to wait to be fed so she insists on being fed between 7 am and 10 am. Here’s her routine:
Scratch at the blanket so the human lets me in.
Climb all over the human and poke her with my nails.
Lick her hands or start to make biscuits.
Climb out of blanket.
Repeat 1-4 until human gets up.
I get up and fed all three fur balls and climb back into bed. I don’t free feed my cats because of the risk of obesity. Java is a pig and would eat herself silly. I would love to free feed Dac, but not going to happen because of my other two cats. It’s much easier to have healthy weight cats than have to get a cat to lose weight.
Daciquiri aka Dac is the baby of the family. She was born in fall of 2013. I had two cats already and didn’t really want another one, but I fell in love with her. She also had a stump of a tail and I have always loved unique cats. In October I smuggled her home so nobody would know I had acquired my third cat. It took a while, but eventually my other cats started “tolerating” her (I can’t say they love her because of her massive amounts of energy).
Dac is an energize bunny, a busy beaver, a momma’s cat (can’t be out of my sight for long periods of time), a cuddler, and is very inquisitive. If I need a laugh Dac can make me laugh. She also loves to carry things in her mouth and can basically just flop any which way and fall asleep.
Dac has a fascination with the toilet and she loves watching when I flush the toilet. Normally I wait til she jumps off and close the lid, other times I leave the lid open.
I went into the bathroom to wash my hands and Dac jumped onto the toilet and I heard a kerplunk and a splash. Yup the lid was open. I chased after her with a towel and tried to dry her off the best I could and contain my laughter. Luckily it was only her back legs and tail that were wet. And no she hasn’t learned to avoid the toilet, she still loves it.
The other day I went to use the toilet and she had dropped my toothpaste into the toilet. I fished it out with the toilet brush and promptly threw it out.
Everyone who has a cat knows that cats think the world revolves around them so the human is below and the cat is on top.
During the summer months I’m super busy and sort of (in my mind) neglect my cats. I feel kind of guilty and being a crazy cat lady I promised to make up for it. A week ago I got a cat tower and it’s their mom feels guilty, Christmas, and birthday present. Dac is in love with the cat tower. Eddie and Java are sometimes on it, but the amount Dac spends on it, it was well worth it.
