The One Where The Woman Whines Because She Can't Sleep

At 1:30 this morning, my fountain stopped fountaining. So I did what any self-respecting cat would do: I walked up and down the hallway, calling for someone with thumbs to get up and fix it.

Well, I know the Woman heard me because there were WORDS said, but she didn't get up. No, she rolled over as if going back to sleep were an option, so I sat by the door and told her I needed help.

She finally caved at 4:30 this morning, but instead of going to my fountain to make it fountain again, she went into the kitchen to open a can for me. Well, I'm intelligent enough to realize that one does not refuse 4:30 am offerings, though it meant that my fountain would sit there, woefully not fountaining.

She went back to bed and tried to sleep, but the guilt of not meeting all of my needs weighed on her, and all she could do was toss and turn. There was grumbling about that because she has a doctor's appointment this morning (no worries, she's not sick; this is just the annual presenting of herself to prove she's still alive) and apparently one must be awake for this. The Man will drive her, so I'm not really sure what the issue is.

Really, I think she just likes to complain.

After the Man got up, he fixed the fountain so it is now fountaining again, so all is well. And I bet the Woman sleeps really well tonight.

Oh, Max, thanks for the laughs today. My cat lost a tooth yesterday and now I'm feeling bad about complaining that he's had more than his fair share of barfs :-(

When the humans aren't meeting the cat's every need, they fuss and fret! Good on you, Max, for making your needs known!

Max, our mom is the same way. The last time our fountain stopped fountaining, she was AWAKE and didn't notice for hours! Then she had the nerve to say to us, Who broke this? The problem was 17 pounds of fur in the motor, but we still blame her for all of it.

Oh, and we didn't get any extra food, either. :-{

At least the extra can of food was a bonus!

Maybe she doesn't know how to fix it. Not everyone is a fix it person.

Which reminds us that WE used ta have a fountain, but Iza kept knocking it over. TBT thought of a few ways to secure it to a base but never actually did. We will remind him of that...
