I think I have finally lost it! I have just spent the last 20 minutes having a conversation with my cat.
Mia, while cut as hell, is an incessant crier. She whines this tiny little Meow at all hours of the day and night and for no good reason I might add. She only started this little habit after the EX left a year or so ago. Can she really be missing her?
Ok so I did try to be understanding at first but now I am ready to kill her. That incessant little cry is annoying! I try everything: treats, a belly rub, petting, brushing, nothing works. She doesn't want anything, she just likes to hear herself I think.
So I pulled Mia onto my lap and asked her "what can I do to make you stop this whining?". She stared at me with those big golden eyes like, "but whatever are you talking about mommy?" then she starts purring. Augh! We are going to get to the bottom of this I say to her. I start talking with her as if I am her shrink. "Ok Mia what are you feeling right now". No answer just continued purring. This one sided conversation goes on until I realize that I am indeed talking to a cat and she is going to do whatever she wants. Cats are finicky that way.
