Our Empty Nest – An Unexpected Consequence, Part 2

Okay, so a few weeks ago I talked about the unexpected consequence of our newly empty nest (see story here) – our once reclusive cat has come out of her shell and has become a demanding little pest.

She misses her girls.

So she’s had to find a new human to love on her.

And it ain’t me.

Every night she comes to visit with us.  And I use the term “us” very loosely here because she’s really only interested in one person.

Last Saturday night, I decided to snuggle up next to my DSH.  This is what Angel the Cat did.  She stared up at me in utter indignation.  I was sitting in her spot.  She started meowing – very loudly – while staring directly at me.

Until I moved.

After which she reclaimed her rightful spot next to her human.

Good grief – when DSH and I used to kiss or snuggle when the kids were around, they objected loudly.  Get a room!  Ewww.  Disgusting.

Now the kids are gone, and I have to compete with the cat for my DSH’s attention.

Oh, and I’ve turned into the freakin’ old lady who takes pictures of her cat and posts them on Facebook.

Yikes.

    I think the kids had a talk with Angel before they left. They told her to keep the two of you apart. Cats are to funny and demanding.

      It’s funny. She does not come around me all day, but when Jack walks in the door, she is there. She also spends time with him in the morning before he leaves. It’s like a little love affair. At least he cleans up her barf, too.

    He was your human first! You know how to be the Alpha, stand your ground.
