Alright, we know I’m one more kitten away from official Crazy Cat Lady status (for some reason, the magic number is 5). So I discovered something this weekend that may seal the deal:
I am perfectly willing to eat/drink after a cat.
Now, I don’t mean I eat catfood, I mean if they don’t eat some people-food I give them, I will take it back and eat it. Callie Jean is very bad to have eyes MUCH bigger than her stomach, so she always demands “one more bite” of whatever I’m having, then sniffs it and walks away. (Except with ham. Ham is Callie’s kryptonite). At that point, if none of the other cats are around, I will eat it.
And Marceau is fascinated by beverages — he either wants to play with the ice cubes or stick his face in the carbonation. Which results in me basically sharing a drink with the cat.
Is this weird? I let the furry little bastards “wash” me and put their noses in my nose, so is this really any different? And the only reason I don’t use the Callie Jean Parenting Method is that I get a mouth full of fur…
I do draw the line at eating stuff they’ve chewed all the good out of and spat back out. That’s just good sense.
