She is 19 - not frail but seems to be more vocal now. She has always been a chatty cat - trills and chirrups mostly with the random silent miaow.
But now we have the low shout of "mouse" or "mom" when she is in a room we are not in. I have read this noise is what a cat will use to call her kittens.
Ok - I get this...
BUT she has now started making this noise which brings us to her and then she gets into her litter tray and does a big shit. Whilst looking at us! ( we assume she is looking at us as she has cataracts)
She is either ' into scatology' or ' going senile'
My husband has suggested we get her a glass topped coffee table....
Ophie does this! She's just a baby (6.5 months) but she announces she is going for a poo... loudly... then when she has finished she miaows for us to praise her (and dispose of said poo) She is REALLY happy if we are in the loo at the same time!
That's possible, I suppose. It's difficult to judge, really, because he's a bonded Siamese so I'm used to being given a running commentary on eg the central heating setting weather, his nosh, the state of the Chinese economy - Oh everything, really - so all events in his day are brought to my attention and I have to respond to them.
I can only guess that with his arthritis, doing a nice poo is very satisfying to him and is worthy of comment. (Plus it kick starts me into cleaning that tray real quickly!)
"Siamese" - from Francesco Marciuliano's "I Could Pee on This"
What's the longest you can hum before they say you've gone insane? What's the difference between a street, an avenue, and a lane? Have you ever told an ethnic joke and insulted a nearby ghost? Have you ever wondered what happened to "Happy Days" star Donny Most? If a hurricane were named "Mortimer," would anyone run away? If a toaster were brought to life, would it clean its own crumb tray? Why don't leprechauns use their gold to pay off their student loans? Why don't ninjas ever forget to silence their cell phones? I know many people think that Siamese are too chatty I know they all think we just talk and talk and talk But you're wide awake in bed just staring at the ceiling So maybe you could tell me why not whiteboard and black chalk?
