Kissing Up To An Angry Cat

My cat is angry. Why? Because we left him home while we all went away, which is why you didn't get a post earlier this week. It's really hard to post without internet access. Really hard.

Anywho, back to my cat. We left him home because he's a cat, even if he thinks he's a better human than me. He had food and water and other cats to torment, but he didn't have us--no people to pour his fat little self milk. No humans to open the door when he meowed. No family to cuddle with. None. So now that we are back, he's ticked. Okay, really ticked.

How do I know? He's giving me the silent treatment. Heck, he won't even look at me. He just turns his back and shuns me. Ouch. No one does the silent treatment like a cat. They can make you bleed from lack of eye contact. Seriously. I had to get out the band-aids. Sniff.

And just to make sure I know how mad he is at me, he curled up with kid D and purred. Then he glanced back at me to rub it in.

And they say women have mood problems. Sheesh.

So, I have to make up with my cat, and like any good man, the path to forgiveness is through his stomach. Can you say milk? And cheese? Yes, and even *gasp* tuna. Tuna always works.

My only question is, if he's so ticked, are you? Are you shunning me for my absence? Will you give me the silent treatment for missing a couple of posts? Will you make me bleed?

Hello? Are you out there?

I'll go get the band-aids.

Okay, and the tuna.

LOL. Cats are a singular phenomenon. Good luck amending the relationship. =)

I had a cat just like that. Vengeful little creatures.
Even though I lacked my blog fix from you, I will not be petty and make you bleed in retribution.

Love the post.

Crystal, they are indeed a phenomenon. Punks, everyone of them.

Sandy, awwww, thanks for not making me bleed. :)

Well, I'm still speaking to you. At least until you bring out the milk, cheese, and tuna ;-).

LeishaMaw said...

Cherie, for you I'll bring something extra bean soup and cherries. But just because you rock. :)

I know someone who was so mad at her husband for about a week that the cat picked up on it and began hissing at him. Well, she forgave her husband . . . but the cat never did. They had to give it away! So I hope you have better luck gaining kitty forgiveness.

As for blog forgiveness, it's summer. We're all in the same boat. ;)

Wow. That's a mad cat. I can see why animation works - animals are sooo like humans. Except for being wooed back with tuna (that SO wouldn't work on my oldest child.)

Irene B. Gardner said...

Giggle, Leisha, you do the cat thing with great aplomb. I can just see every moment of torment the little beast put you through. Sigh ... some people and cats learn, but alas, some never do. So which are you?

I could never be angry with you for anything, sweet one.


LeishaMaw said...

Nikki, that must have been one angry wife. Thanks for the laugh. And my cat rubbed against my let today. I think we have success. :)

Jonene, maybe tuna only works for cats. Try chocolate. Mmmmmm.

Irene, I hope I'm the learning kind. I learned to keep tuna on hand, didn't I? ;)
