Janie has been yowling at night for the last 6 nights in a row which has prevented me from sleeping well. I’m awake every few hours to her pacing the hallways yowling. We haven’t had this issue in a good long time.
Here’s the emotional run down with complaining and a few insensitive expressions:
- I wonder what’s wrong with her. Shoot, I don’t care what’s wrong. I just want her to shut up.
- I hate the constant meowing and that yowling sound. It comes out of nowhere. The sound is from a friggin’ horror show for certain. The PTSD response in me is strong when she does this.
- She’s lonely. She needs a cat friend. Girl please, we are not getting another cat. I’m not even going to foster a kitten right now.
- She’s demanded my attention a lot lately. As soon as I get on the phone she starts making a bunch of noise then she climbs all over me and gets right up in my face. She didn’t used to do that.
The cat is seriously on my nerves. I haven’t said that in a long time either. The simple stuff about her is fine. I fix the throw rugs daily because for her they’re toys. She’s a messy eater but I just sweep it up. Daily cat stuff like that aren’t an issue for me. Cat hair, litter box, etc, etc, not an issue BUT currently there are issues that we need to work on.
As soon as I sit down on the sofa or in the chair the girl is right in my face licking it. She licks my face. She can’t just let me pet her, nope, she has squirm around, meow like a maniac, rubbing against my face then lick it. STOP IT!
Mary Jane is bored a lot anymore and she’s lonely. I might need to invest in a cat toy that will use up some energy cause right now all she’s doing is getting on my nerves clinging to me and yowling at night. She’s even gotten herself in trouble by running across the room only to bounce then land on the aquarium. No, no, no, no, no!!!!!!
So those are her issues, my main issue is that because of lack of sleep and serious irritation, I’m TIRED and MY BODY HURTS.
I can’t be mad today or tired today because tomorrow is my trip. I need to take the day and attempt to get my body to be half way ready for a drive. I’m so flippin tired!!! I think what I’m going to do is try to go back to sleep for a little bit then get up and take a nice, long walk. I need to do some stretches to loosen up my muscles and maybe release anxiety.
I’ll pack stuff this evening so I don’t have anything to do tomorrow other than get up and put my clothes on. Before I got to bed I’ll give her a nice little kitty cat sleepy treat and take a sleeper myself. I’ll also wear my ear plugs to bed then be up and ready to leave the house at 7am Friday morning.
I’ll do a research on cat behavior modification so we can get a handle on the yowling, face licking and demanding behaviors. I’ll try to figure it out and see what we can do. Until then, she’s seriously about to get a nighty night pill this evening. I have to go to Krogers to get it. I can’t remember the name of it though. It’s just a tiny chewable pill for nervous cats. It’s about $5 for a bag of 24 pills and it works well. I haven’t had to use them in a very long time but tonight it WILL HAPPEN then when I’m back I’ll do some research. The first bit of research is to take a look at what has changed in our household.
