Oh, It Was the Cat.

Dear Cat Whose Name Shall Not Be Spoken,

Please do not jump and launch yourself off the bed while your owner is sleeping. Y’see, your Seroquel-drugged, schizophrenic owner only feels the bed shake mysteriously in the dead of night. This causes her to freeze in terror and grab the sides of the bed while thinking, ‘Ooooooh crap! The fairies are back!’ Thirty panic-stricken seconds later, she hears you jump on the chair and realizes, “Oh, it was the cat.” kthxbai.

You just need to synch up your sleep schedule with CWNSNBS's. Damn humans are so egocentric.

I so know the feeling of being woken out of that Seroquel-drugged slumber by a playful cat at three in the morning. Talk about a heart attack!!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Berryvox said...

Franscud - Wait. I'm supposed to sleep for 18 hours/day?

Jane - Luckily, neither of my cats do that very often!

kebelle said...

I think you have such a profound insight expressed in the metaphor of a cat.

Jillian said...

LOL... I love cats. I should write a letter to the cat that lives downstairs from me. He or shoe keeps walking on the trunk of my car and scratching the paint.

What do you have against fairies? They're just trying to break out of their world into ours, through your brain I think.

Berryvox said...

Kebelle - Hmm, I didn't think of it that way but it certainly gives the phrase "The cat whose name shall not be spoken" a whole new ominous tone.

Jillian - Ack! Bad kitty! I've had too many kitties get squished in the street when I was little to allow my cats outside.

Ferd - I have a bad feeling my next break is going to involve the phrase, "Beware the fairy queen!" somewhere.

FerdC ~ Crazy Medical Cases said...

I'm crossing fingers and toes that you never have another break. The damn fairies should stay where they belong!

Titania Starlight said...

My kitties are bad like that. I love fairies too. Hence my blog name.... Titania which is the Queen of the Fairies. :O)

Take care.

Berryvox said...

Ferd - Same here!

Titania - Oh, I thought that name sounded vaguely familiar. :)

FerdC ~ Crazy Medical Cases said...

I didn't mean you, Titania. You're a kind and beautiful, real life fairie. I meant the evil ones that want to cross over using Kayla's brain.

my kitty sleeps on me and walks over me all night long...the other sleeps by my head...I find them comforting...I'm so used to their presence. But I always think it's strange that they don't bother me.

Berryvox said...

Billy - Y'know, that is on my list of 'should see's.

Gianna - One of my cats sleeps with me. Only until I fall asleep though. I must have whacked her upside the head enough times that she knows better now. :)
