Well she has good reason at least...

Because I gave her a glycerin suppository. She's been constipated a few days and the olive oil treatment hasn't made a dent, neither did the Vaseline.

Hopefully this does the trick. She's never been diagnosed with megacolon, but I did have a cat that did have it and she's experiencing similar symptoms.

If she doesn't pop today, she's going to the VET tomorrow.

First it was because I was telling her that she wouldn't like the (heavily seasoned) beef I was eating, instead of giving her a taste.

Then it was because I gave her a taste of the beef, and she didn't like it. ::)

I gave her a dose of prednisolone for a strained shoulder. Then I gave her sister a dose for itching.

Neither one is very fond of it.

Scampi was crying all weekend because

Mom went shopping for the adopt-a-family and now there are bags with presents in them, and bags with food in them, in places where there normally isn't anything.

Mom has also been shopping and wrapping gifts for the hoomins in the family and there are more bags with presents in them in places where there normally isn't anything.

Mom was the meet director for the night orienteering event and she staged all the meet equipment in the foyer, where normally there isn't anything.

And finally the stuff in the foyer was removed, restoring it to its normal state, but then they dragged in a tree. A tree of all things! And they stood it up in the living room, in a location where there normally isn't anything.

Scampi is decidedly not happy about the state of things being where things normally aren't.

Badger is explaining to me how he is entitled to all the bacon off my pizza and how wrong I am for not giving him the lot. ::) ;D

Because he was outside, and didn't I know it was raining, and therefore he was wet?

Never mind that he could have entered the house under his own power at any point.

The sad meows resulted in him getting picked up, carried inside, and deposited on the food bowls, at which point the sad sounds abruptly were replaced with the sound of crunching kibble.

Our younger cats, Cocoa and Spook are sitting outside the laundry room, shouting sympathy. :)

My cat sometimes meows in her sleep. Sometimes she'll do the said sleep-meowing when I'm trying to sleep and scare the crap out of me.

Because I will not spend the entire day on the bed with him. Sitting on a nice comfy couch beside Mama is not an option. Only the bed will do!

Twik, my cat will often meow at me because she wants to go to bed, which means I have to as well. Going by herself just doesn't work. ::)

Today, however, she was meow-grumbling at me because the precise spot on my desk that she wanted to sit on was occupied by my cup of tea.

Becuase I won't let her dig in the day lilys that were a gift from my best friends mom. When I picked her up to put her in the house I got the angriest meow out of her I've ever heard.

Because I took his dead mouse away (shudder) and he'd hunted it his ownself. Also my screaming was too high pitched.

Mine generally shouts because she is proud of her accomplishment and wants me to see.  Also, she wants to come in and eat/play with it in the 'den'.
