My Cats Confuse Me
I love my cats. I think they’re the best things in the world. But they confuse me. Some of their behaviors are odd. Maybe the things they do are just them or maybe other cats do them. I don’t know.
Chloe is my tortoise-shell calico. She is so adorable! I just want to love on her all the time. She won’t let me. She’ll tease me and act like she may let me touch her and then will run away. She is quite coquettish. Another thing she does is bark. Yes, she is a cat. She doesn’t meow. She makes this noise that is more like a bark. Kind of like, “Meh meh meh!” It seems to mean, “Hey! Look at me!” She also does these twitters and chirpy noises. It is so cute. She is also quite small compared to other cats I have seen. She only weighs 8 lbs. Her weirdest thing is to lick plastic grocery bags. This is something I don’t get at all. I have to watch when she is around them to make sure she isn’t eating them. But the licking of the bags is weird.
Soleil is my blonde tabby. She is so sweet and loving. She is mellow for the most part. Every now and then she takes off running through the house for no reason and goes nuts. She runs up and down the stairs. She is easy-going but one thing she does that drives me nuts is grooms me. I don’t mean just licking my arm here and there. No. It’s like a compulsion she has. And she gets almost painful with it. I try to cover my arm up and she’ll go wherever I move it unless I put it under covers.
I love these girls. They make me smile when no one can. But some of their behaviors make me shake my head in confusion.
