Obsessed

I don't know if this ever happens to you friends, but sometimes my parents become obsessed with me. They are frequently obsessed with my whereabouts, as they search around the house. I'm a housecat, where am I going to go? I'm somewhere in the house. Let it go.

They can also grow obsessed with my intake and my ::whispers:: output. Sure I'd been having some tummy issues off and on, but I'm fine. I have a spring in my step and my tail is high and floofy. You'd have thought I expelled gold as excited as they've been to discuss the ::whispers:: output. Honestly folks get yourselves a hobby.

Mom claims I have my own obsession. I suppose I do. I love the bathroom sink and the water that drips from it. Gosh it's fascinating. Even when I'm not thirsty I just love to watch it. I also tend to demand snuggles from Mom while I determine if I'm thirsty. The other day she was phoning it in with a one-handed pet, and I was not going to have it. I reached out with my paw, grabbed her other hand (that was doing nothing) and brought over to my chin.

Luckily she got the idea and started up the two-handed pets I enjoy. I like it when she gives rough pets down the sides and pats at my tail base. I like it best when she calls out encouragements like "get in there" and "let's mix it up!" as she administers the pets. It gets me fired up and stokes my thirst so I'm ready to dive into the stream. So tasty from the tap!

What about you friends to you or your family have any obsessions?

  1. Well friends Mom is still "Working on another project" so she is hoping you'll understand our lack of commenting. We are still keeping up with all your worlds and hope to get back to commenting more often. Purrs!

  6. Hope the project is going well! : )

    I have a new obsession. ...something to keep G&G guessing. I'm watching the clock. We have a giant clock in the living room. I sit on a stool in front of it and watch it. The only reason I'm doing it is to make them think I'm crazy. Messing with them is my guilty pleasure.

  7. Well Fin I must admit that I cannot leave the house until every cat is accounted for. This drives my hubby crazy and he enjoys tormenting me by saying things like "I thought I saw Archie running down the street laughing".

    Casper likes a vigorous petting also, especially on his sides...must be a floofy cat thing :-)

  8. Oh, I HATE it when my human starts wandering around looking for me! I don't know what is going through her head, but I'm hanging out, peacefully minding my own business and maybe dozing, but she won't be satisfied until she has found me, woken me, and perhaps annoyed me even further by picking me up. She does this to Binga and Boodie sometimes too, but I get it twice as often as they do.

  9. Hmmm....the weird one in this house is Nikki. She's forever lounging in the bathroom sink, demand water fresh from the tap, or she'll drink the flavoured one from the human litter bowl. Yuks! purrr...meow!

  11. Our main obsession is food. We want to be fed at least every 35 seconds. And if someone comes in from the outside, we all need to eat again. Also BB likes that rough patting too. Glad you kind of have that Mom under control Fin. Take care.

  12. Fin your obsession is perfectly understandable. Their obsession with your errrrr output is a little more concerning. Have you consulted anyone in a professional capacity? It might be wise! Not for yourself but for them. They probably need an intervention. Your friend, Austin. >^..^<

  15. Our Mom is obsessed with our output...and in a household with 1 dog, 6 cats, 2 rabbits, 2 guinea pigs and 2 tortoises, that's a WHOLE LOT of output. She tells us she finds digging and picking up our outputs relaxes her. Go figure.

  16. Oh Fin I am actually quite relieved to hear that I'm not the only one that has to know my kitties whereabouts at all times and monitors their 'output'. It's like a switch got turned on the day I brought home my first cat :)

  17. Well, it sorta goes both ways around here. While Grace hates that I'm obsessing about her litter box "issues" and food intake, she's all whacked out because Hobbes dares to come sit on me. I guess we all just have to learn to get along, right???!

  20. ROFL about your golden output!! Hey, at least they care and want to be sure you are healthy and putting out some good stuff, right? You sure are a demanding kitteh, but I suspect your hoomin does not mind!
