Hello kitties,

Last night was a rough night for me, and I still don't know why. Mommy and daddy were gone all of yesterday because they were out having funs or something like that. When they came home we pretty much all went straight to bed. Well let me tell you, there was SOMETHING in that house last night. I don't know what it was, but something had me super spooked. I was all poofed up big and scary, I was crying in fear, I curled up in the closet nook and trembled. All of this happened at around 3 in the morning. I woke mommy up and she was so scared for me. She brought in the nom noms and brother and locked all of us in the bedroom/bathroom area with her. She closed off the closet and brought me to bed with her. She didn't know why I wasn't snuggling with them like I usually do so she held me in her arms and I trembled and cried and whimpered. I wasn't hurt, I was scared. Mommy didn't know what I was scared of and she and daddy were really worried about me.

Eventually being locked in the little space paid off. River came and slept by mommies head so he could keep an eye on me and mommy and daddy let me sleep between them. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong and I'm fine now, but I was so scared last night at 3am. What do you think it was kitties?

Just so you all don't get too worried though... I'll still give you a french lesson today!

Today we will be learning about

Les quartre Aliments de Base Chat = The four cat food groups!
Or in other words... the four groups of nom noms!

Une: = One:
La Bouffe Granulee = The Dry Food
The dry food is ok but it's not my favorite...

Deux: = Two:
Les Conserves = The canned food
yummy yummy yummy in my tummy tummy tummy! NOM NOM tastic!

Trois: = Three:
Les Vivres Fraiches = The 'natural' foods
I'm pretty sure these are the things River wants to catch and eat...
L'Oiseau = The Bird
La Souris = The Mouse
Le Poisson = The Fish
La Vilaine Grosse Bestiole = The Big Ugly Bug
I think that last one is River's favorite, he's always trying to eat La Vilaine Grosse Bestiole!

And finally our last food group...
Quatre: = Four:
Les Aliments Tabous = The Forbidden Foods
We've all had our run ins with Les Aliments Tabous! Which one is your favorite?
L'Elastique = The Rubber Band
Le Bout de Ficelle = The Piece of String
La Composition de Fleur Sechees = The Dried Flower Arrangement
Le Trombone = The Paperclip
Les Cheveux d'Ange = The Tinsel
La Plante en Pot = The Potted Plant
Les Aliments Qu'On a Laisses Sans Surveillance sur la Table = The food left unguarded on the table!

I think my favorite is either Le Bout de Ficelle or Les Aliments Qu'On a Laisses Sans Surveillance sur la Table! What about you kitties?

I don't know sweetie, could you have psychically known that there were horrible storms ripping through the midwest? I mean, kitties are in tune with EVERYTHING. Maybe you're so in tune you were experiencing that kind of scared energy. My mommy is empathic like that and honestly can get physically ill right before an earthquake, hurricane, tornado, all of that stuff. Some kitties might think we're nuts for saying that but my mom can sense changes in the atmosphere, even a world away. Maybe you can too?

Mommy and daddy don't know what it is. She thought at first it might have been a catfight outside our door. If our nom nomers show up at the same time sometimes we get some fighting, but that wasn't it. It was something spooky. It made mommy very worried, she didn't get much sleep last night cause she was too busy holding onto me in beds. I think I made her and River and daddy all really scared too.

Mommy and daddy just spent a long time talking about it. They are so tired today, they didn't sleep well last night because of the events. They are wondering, is it possible I'm going blind? Has anyone had a kitty that lost their sight when they got older, what was it like? I don't have good vision because of my blue eyes but is it possible it got worse and I was upset because I was having problems finding everything last night?

Mom often says that we can sense lots of things that humans can't see or feel. Maybe there was a little tremor or something was outside. Our favorite thing is Le Trombone = The Paperclip. Mom finds them under our refrigerator.....I wonder how they get there!!

Simone, I agree. The string and unguarded food is the most tempting. Mom said she would take some Rainbeau Troutee!!

Did you see one of the strays through the window? Did they scare you?
Did you knock something over and it scared you?

I agree with Skylar - I bet it was a tremor!!

I'm not old but Tux is, and when he started losing his eyesight it's just like you would imagine. He started bumping into things. I just don't know though.

Take care of yourself, love.

Mommy and daddy toyed with that idea too. They thought maybe I saw something outside the window, maybe a stray, maybe a larger animal coming for nom noms and I got spooked. Maybe I sensed the weather changes, CA does get lots and lots of weird weather sometimes. They just have no idea. They've never seen me so scared and defensive and poofed up. When mommy got up at 3am they were very worried something had gotten into the house and scared me that way. She turned on all the lights and walked the house, daddy confessed he was trying to act calm but he was ready to jump out of bed with a defense weapon in case mommy made any noise that wasn't addressed at me. That's how weird I was acting. I had mommy and daddy thinking there was an intruder. I've never behaved so scared before, ever. My poor parents were so tired by because I couldn't calm down they didn't get much sleep. Mommy said over active imaginations running all night after that trying to figure out what was bothering me. It was just the weirdest night ever.

Ive seen Zach do that after a nightmare too. Our parents are the same way, they can't sleep if there is something wrong with us. Sign of good parents.

Well now you're getting me worried about you! I think if you ever do this again, you should go to the V-E-T. I know you don't want to but just to make darned sure there's nothing going on physically! Our poor Moe Moe, at least you have such wonderful parents who trust your judgement and knows to listen to you! Other kitties would be locked up somewhere but you're so loved they stayed awake with you all night. That's so pawsome of them!

I'm a pretty lucky girl Lacey! My mommy and daddy love me like I'm there little baby. Mommy told me if this happens again I'm going to the vets but they are hopeful it was just a one time thing. I seem to be doing ok today. A little jumpy and very sleepy, but ok overall. I'm not acting how I act when I get sick so that makes them feel confident but they watch me carefully. The last thing they want is another late night emergency vet visit on a weekend like when my teeth shattered, that's no way to spend a weekend!

Oh Simone! That sounds just awful. I'm glad you're doing okay now and hope you'll be even better by tomorrow.

One of my favorite forbidden foods is Le Bout de Ficelle, too!

I hope so Simone. Wow, what an awful night for all of you and scary for your pawents!

You know what I just thought of? Did you hear something outside that might have made you have flashbacks to when you were abused before you came to live with this mommy and daddy? Maybe there was a noise outside that triggered a memory. I don't think anyone truly forgets when they've been hurt like that before.
Purred by: Simone (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 9:03 pm

That's a big possibility Finney! They hadn't thought of that but mommy and daddy both agree that is a possibility. Who knows was triggers the scary things in my mind. I've pretty much pushed all the bad memories out, but they certainly linger back there. When mommy was a kid they had a dog who had been abused. Until the end of her life she was afraid of men with beards. Never knew why but it was definitely a triggered memory. Maybe something triggered something scary for me. Paws crossed that tonight I sleeps peacefully on the bed with them though and don't have any more panic attacks!

Just sounds to me like that has to be it Simone. And you're exactly right as it's the same with people. Once you've been abused, who knows what can trigger it but those memories never fully go away. There's a part of the mind that locks those things away. I think you'll be okay now. And look, you get to sleep on the bed!!!
