My cat is driving me nuts right now.
Technically we have 8 in our house.  That's about 6.5 too many if you ask me.
We have the 4 year old (a 2X Mama) Midnight (got her at 6 weeks old)
We have the 8 month old Nala (got her in February)
We have Fluffy (who turned 6 wks May 15th.. she's from Midnight's 1st litter).
And we currently have 5 babies who just turned 4 weeks... Midnight's 2nd litter:
Butch, the Gray one, Baldy, Pretty, Runty.

I want to take all of the babies and Midnight to the pet store.
The boys (and hubby) want to keep Butch. (He's a white Siamese looking one)
Today we were debating keeping Fluffy, Nala & Butch only..

My cats are a bit spoiled.  3 litter boxes that I scoop (at least) twice daily.  They have a big auto-feeder of dry food.  Kitten food on the floor level, and big cat food up on a higher shelf.  They get a can of wet food in the mornings.  Sometimes in the afternoon, because Midnight's hunger is insatiable because she's nursing.

I vacuum/sweep/wipe down bathrooms/clean kitchens every day.  The house is clean.

And yet we have suddenly developed fleas! Ugh!! I need to get some diatomaceous earth, because it's something I can treat the house with that is safe for the babies and will kill the fleas.  But our town is so small they have to get more & they won't be in until Monday!! I've been attacking all of the cats with a flea comb daily... and that's time consuming and only helps for a brief moment.  I have been combing the internet for kitten safe remedies.  We saw a suggestion of lavendar, but all I could find at the store was a lavendar febreeze.  We've been spraying the house with that, but can't exactly spray the animals.  I don't even want to give the grown up cats the flea drops, because they interact a lot with the babies, and it's not safe for the babies.  And I don't want an excuse for more of them to live on the babies.  Butch (the hubby, not the cat) has taken to spraying himself with Off!  Trying to give a valiant effort, since he's the only human they like to snack on in the house.

Midnight has taken to begging something fierce.  And the wet & dry food just doesn't suppress her appetite. Either that or she is just a pain in the butt who likes to eat.  Gah!! She doesn't just cry, oh no, she climbs on you, on the table, the counters, the couch.  I spray her with water and it pisses her off for about half a second.  Than she's right back to wherever the heck you don't want her to be.  Crying. 

None of my cats have ever been this obnoxious!!

Up until now, I've been a pretty happy cat person.  But today I am NOT.  Midnight is making me sooo angry!!!

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...


    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)

    I would like your thoughts, help, comments, feedback. I am not a robot!

    No matter how serious life gets, you still gotta have that one person you can be completely stupid with
