I'm O.K.; Cat's O.K.

Well actually I'm not all that O.K. because I'm still waiting to hear from the assistant principal and I'm thinking most likely I'll have to try contacting the H.R. person on Monday. I'm starting to feel a little weird about the whole thing.

But the Cat passed all her tests with flying colors. I mean, seriously, the vet was really impressed with how good her test results were for a 13 year old cat.

That pretty much means that the only thing left to do is stop rewarding her unacceptable behavior of prodding me and licking my arms at 3 a.m.--in other words, I can't get up to feed her that early in the morning. This morning, I managed to ignore her i
n the moment of annoying me and waited until she had given up and walked away before I got up to feed her. Yup, I held out until 4:30 a.m.

Baby steps.

Oh, but baby steps will get you there! It's totally annoying, but very possible. Good luck!

CCR--I dunno; can you teach an old cat new tricks? But thanks!

Angela--yeah, see what I have to contend with here? It's like puppy-dog eyes.

Glad she is okay, she is darling. You could do what I do and lock her out of the bedroom, it is the only way I ever get to sleep in, I toss all three cat kids out the bedroom door and shut it when they try to wake me at 6.
Good luck with the other thing, I hope you get to go on your adventure.

Thanks, Annie! I had the unfortunate experience of having to shut her IN my bedroom in a previous apartment, so I know she is a RUG DESTROYER if she can't get a door open. She'd probably trash my sofa for good measure. Otherwise, I totally would just shut her out.

She's very powerful for eight pounds.
