Finally Lulu earned her keep. I think she can stay.

The temperature reading says 83Â°F on the fan. But it’s now after 7pm. It was up to 88Â°F here in the nook earlier today when the sun was beating down on the house. Needless to say, it’s hot with out turning on the A/C. So yeah, Lulu really likes laying under the fan.
There is nothing more than I hate when people whine. Ok, maybe people sighing. It’s ok if I whine, but when other people, or rather, when cats do it, it slowly eats away at my soul.
The irony is that I married the love of my life who happens to have 2 cats. Lucky me. And because Em is pregnant, I have taken over a lot of the pussy duties. I clean the litter and feed the cats now. I kinda had been doing this for a while, but it’s official now. This has equated to them sadly thinking I am their new care giver. Again, lucky me.
Now the problem comes in when they *think* they are hungry. Which seems to be every 32 seconds. If you are even in a 10 foot radius of the container that holds their food you get a “MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEROAR!!!” If you start walking down the stairs to get water or to turn on the heat. Either staircase, too. You’ll get a “MEEEEEEEEEEEOWWWWWW(ROAR!)” from Lulu- With an emphasis on the “ow.” And as of late when you get up from the couch in the living room, Mulligan assumes it’s time for her feeding and I am headed to the “feeding place” simply to feed her alleged empty stomach.
I’ve tried training them, but they can’t learn. Since the whining gets on my nerves so severely, I started squirting them with water when they start whining when I am in the “dead zone.” I gave that 7 days and it didn’t curb their appetite for whining. I added a table spoon or 6 of apple cider vinegar. It’s been about 14 days of that with no sign of let up. I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I expect too much from pussies. I’ve sort of given up on the vinegar solution because in the end I have to touch Mulligan after I feed her because of her insulin shots and nothing is worse than vinegar hand.
Now I am writing this, declaring my frustrations with these animals. But at the same time I am trying to understand these foreign creatures. I’ve seriously tired to learn the way of the pussy. But I’ve come to the conclusion I will never understand these beings. And quite honestly, I don’t care.
But to prove to you their horrific yet soaring whining abilities, I recorded their whining today, just about 4 hours after they were fed this morning. Clearly they needed a feeding. (Lulu is mainly in the left channel and Mulligan in the right)
And what’s cool is in reverse it sounds like a helpless crying baby. Coincidence?
