in a million years would
I have ever dreamed anything
so sweet taking place with Dakota!
Is this not the most adorable
thing you ever seen?
Dakota sharing his food with Lily.
Dakota gets veggies mixed with his
meal, he saves the peas for last.
The ones Lily leaves anyway!
Cuteness aside lets discuss my nights
with these two.
I understand the cat in Lily and I
was told when I got her from
several cat folks that cats do things
on their own time and schedule.
With that being said, I am not at all
surprised when at 3:30/4:30 am that
Lily wants to be loved and rubbed on.
Not that I am crazy about my sleep
being distrubed but I can almost do
this in my sleep although I would
preferr if she would ask for the loving/
rubbing during the day!
It's this one that I am having issues
A little over a year ago, before Lily
he started something strange.
He wants to wake me up at all
hours by walking around me on the
bed. Seriously, over my head, around
my feet, both sides, scratching at me.
At first I thought it was him wanting out,
odd way of telling me cause generally
he jumps off the bed, comes to my
side and straches the matteress where
I am laying to wake me to go out.
He still does that but when he started
the other behavior I just thought maybe
he had been trying to wake me and he was
having a hard time.
But after the first couple of times in
my dozed state of mind I realized
that when he does that stuff, the
walking around me, he don't want
out. I will go downstairs, open the
front door and he runs to the couch.
So, its his way of saying, time to move
downstairs. What I don't get is
why at all hours of the night?
Getting up with him is becoming an
issue not only cause of this, which
thank goodness he don't do everynight.
I understand he is getting older and
the bladder and other parts might
need to get up and go during the
night, it happens to the best of us.
The issue here is when he wants out
at night, I have to go down the stairs
then when he comes in back up them
again. Once is okay, twice I can give a little
on but three FREAK'N times last night!
The 2nd was thirty mins after he came
in the first time. Okay....maybe tummy
troubles, I get it.
What gets me though is, during the
day he is stuck to me like glue.
I leave a room, he is there, I go in
a room, he follows, I go to the deck,
there he goes, I go in the yard and
he is right on my heels. I can't get
him to veg in the yard while I am
on the deck. He will go pee without
me through the day but he does his business
and he is back by my side in a matter of mins.
BUT at night, I sit on the couch waiting
for his return and he is gone forever.
Last night, well, 3:15 this morning,
it was 30 mins after he went out, I was
getting concerned, I put on my shoes
grabbed the flash light and went out,
just as I stepped in the drive, here he
comes. What the hell is he doing, combing
the neighborhood? He don't leave the yard
during the day.
So thanks to him and Lily's night
time rub down my sleep was
a challenge last night, also, I sleep
with a CPAP machine, so on and off
it goes! I see a nap in my future today.
If anyone has any clues on what I can
do to stop Dakota's adventures at night,
please share. Thoughts for tonight....
Thanks for checking on the furbabes,
would you like to keep them tonight
so I can sleep!
