Sharing the bed - with the cats - took a lot of getting used to. They were not very happy that I was taking up THEIR spot. Angry cats are not nice cats.
I have now lived with these cats for a long time. We have come to an understanding. They get their way. They sleep where where want. They drag my clothes from the laundry basket and deposit it all over the house. They bring me dead and half dead mice. And to tell you the truth, sometimes I don't completely hate them.
What I DO hate is kitty litter. I hate it with a passion. I hate it more than anything I hate in this world. I hate the smell of it, the texture of it, and most of all, I hate the weight of it. I hate the 100 pound boxes it comes in at Costco. I hate the 200 pounds boxes of used litter I have to cart up the stairs and out to the truck and to the dump. I hate the litter more than I love the cats. I cannot wait for the day in my life when kitty litter is no more.
I think there should be a lottery for cat owners - like the 1000 dollars a week for the rest of your life, there should be a ticket that would exempt you from cleaning litter for the rest of your life. I would seriously buy those tickets.
