crooning so loudly
meow meow meow me
and no one can sleep
My cat, Maya, loves to hear herself talk. She meows constantly. When we got her, they said, "She is very talkative." I remember at the time thinking that was a good thing. Now I know it was a euphemism for crying at all hours of the day and night. She especially loves to cry on those nights that I have difficulty getting the children to sleep. She has some other annoying habits too. She eats anything - plastic bags, Barbie's hands, my leather boots, her own fur. We tried giving her anti-anxiety medications, but that was not very easy- and super expensive. We have two cats. Zinn the cat is more mellow. The strong quiet type.
Maya really is more my husband's cat. Animal lovers, please don't hate me, but Maya is a difficult cat to love. She is part of our family, and so I try to get along with her as best I can... but sometimes I do daydream about finding her a new home. I work all day with behaviorally disturbed children- who wants to come home to a behaviorally disturbed cat? She is a very beautiful cat though.... talkative and a little disturbed, but beautiful.
