I haven’t written about my kids in awhile so I figure you might like to hear the latest thing that has happened to the baby of the group Sylvia. If you have followed for awhile you know I have 2 cats Elinore or Alley Cat and Sylvia. My grandparents also have a cat named Vinnie that has to be around 15 years old. I recently received an awesome product to review on my blog (that review will be up in the next few days). They packed the box with paper so that it wouldn’t shift while it was being shipped. Now my two cats are easily scared and my family has been known to torment them from time to time because of how they act. My grandparents cat has always loved paper. So he was playing in the paper and is actually still sleeping on the paper because every time we try and clean it up he gets upset that we get rid of it. Anyway Vinnie decided that he was going to hide in the paper and jump out at Elinore. Now of course she took of running both times he did it which gave me the great idea of scaring the girls myself. Let me just say Sylvia ran into the metal railing as she was trying to get away and go hide in the basement.
She finally at one point decided that it was safe to come up so she came into my room and I was taking her to eat because she hadn’t eaten because I had scared her. My brother hears me coming down the hall holding her and he scared her again. I think she would have been okay if she had only been scared the 2 times but then the next morning Vinnie is hiding in the paper again and scares poor Sylvia for the 3rd time.
Now my poor cat is having a hard time even functioning in the house. I am sure part of it is because the paper is still in the living room because my grandma refuses to throw it out because Vinnie is still sleeping in it. My hope is that after Christmas when the paper is gone and things are back to normal that she won’t be as scared as she is now.
***I know I shouldn’t have done it at all but it was funny. I did get pissed when my brother did it the second time but there was nothing I could do since I had no idea he was going to do it until I walked past the paper and him. If I had know I wouldn’t have walked down the hallway with her.
