Because she's a fucking terrorist. She jumps on the bed and meows LOUDLY at you. At 4-5am. We've discovered the only way to not desire to kill her is to lock her out of the bedroom at night.

And holy hell - did we adopt siblings?!? :mw_confused:

We called her Neko. She was found 6 weeks - 2 months old, alone in a forest. Hence she misses some social skills and she's very much a scaredy-cat. She's 6 now and even though she has some quirks (what cat doesn't), she has adapted quite well to us. She's not a fan of strangers though.

Hah, that first pic is just too cute. They're supposed to be quite a handful, though yours looks pretty sweet. Then again, most cats do ... until they want/don't want something.

oh she's mostly evil; hates people (sometimes including me), hates to be picked up, sleeps with me only when it's cold, loves to hide and randomly attack when i walk by, sometimes gives a look like she'd like to kill me (cats don't play, they practice). but mostly we get along as long as i feed her and don't throw away her favorite boxes. if i died and they didn't find my body she'd totally eat my face

Sounds like my cat, too, up until ~a year ago. We'd had her for about 4 years at that point, and somehow almost overnight, she turned into MY kitty. Still doesn't like being held all that much, but sometimes she'll demand that I hold her. And will sit on my lap on the rare occasions the mood strikes her.

My adorable little asshole furball is finicky about her litterbox and won't use it if it's been used. Which isn't a problem during the day, but becomes problematic at night when my wife and I neglect her and have the audacity to sleep. She's pretty much the reason we have a steam cleaner for our carpets.

Anyway, one night she (of course) pooped on the carpet. By the DVD shelf. Then knocked over some of the DVDs and tried to "bury" her poop with DVDs.

The one she chose? Teen Wolf 2

For Christmas last year, my wife got me the book Cinemaps - it's a book with short essays and an artistic map of every setting in the film. The map has an interpretation of every setting in the film, but also includes a path of where every character went. You can literally follow the movie and see who everyone was with by following the map. The essays are meh (mostly plot rehashes with a tiny bit of analysis), but the maps are legit awesome. The first movie I watched from the book (IJ Last Crusade) had such a cool map that I spent 1+ hours looking at the map.

Anyway, I suggested we watch a movie from the book tonight. Wife picked it up, glanced at the ToC, and said "We're watching Clueless - I haven't seen that since I was a teenager." Aside from the major weirdly icky plot point, it's fun. I loved the fashion and it was cool to reminisce.

So why am I posting this here? Because about 5 minutes after I finished looking at the book, this happened:

I'm calling it. She's too cuddly and it's actually getting annoying. She wakes me up in the middle of the night twice last night so that she can be on my chest and purring. I then wake up at 7 am and sit on the computer for a bit. She jumps to my lap and cuddles with me. I then lift her off to get some coffee. I come back to sit. She jumps on my lap and cuddles. I then go to the washroom and do some phone calls. I sit back down. She jumps on my lap and cuddles. I then lift her off and put her on the couch because my legs are starting to hurt. The second I sit she sprints towards me, jumps on my lap and cuddles.

It's been 2 out of 2.5 hours of me being awake and that's how long she's been on there.

Is she weaned? Mine was found at the age of 6 weeks on a roadside, she was obviously not weaned. Now she's 5 years old and is as needy as she was 4 years ago.

Not sure. All I know is that she was from a cat rescue service. A bunch of cats were rescued from a cat hoarder in a small town nearby.

It's getting worse. She was on me from 6 am to 10 pm yesterday, no matter where I was. When I go to the bathroom she would scratch the door and start screaming. She doesn't even eat food or drink water unless I am in the kitchen.
