Stir Crazy Cat

quint01.jpgNo, this isn’t a I Can Has Cheezburger? post, but since I don’t have any kids, I get to make little observations about my cat, Quint. It’s been pretty much raining consistently for the last three days or so. Quint is an indoor/outdoor cat — we leave the back sliding door open for him to come and go as he pleases. He generally hangs out in the house, but it’s great not having to deal with a litterbox. Well, since it has been raining so much — and it turns out that Quint isn’t a big fan of getting wet — he’s been spending even more time than usual inside, and I believe he is starting to go a little stir crazy.

I love the guy — he’s my best four-legged friend. But, I now have an idea of how parent and/or teachers feel when their kids have been cooped up for an extended amount of time. Quint kept me up for much of the night last night. Oh, he was all cozy and cuddly as we fell asleep watching my Seinfeld reruns, but in the middle of the night he decided that he had had enough of not being able to go outside. Mind you, no one was stopping him from going outside — the sliding door was open — he just didn’t want to go out in the rain, and he was sure to let me know. Nothing like having a paw repeatedly batted into your face from over the edge of the bed when you’re trying to sleep. That, and standing on my face to look out the window at the head of my bead, as well as playing a game of “let’s see how close to the edge the cat can push the full cup of water on the nightstand without it falling over” made for a less than refreshing night of sleep.

Of course, he’s out like a light right now as I type this. Okay, that’s enough cat talk — I’m starting to sound like single, middle-aged female office manager who’ll be posting about her knitting next.
