A New Definition of Insanity


I’m such a GOOD girl – I NEVER give you problems!

We all attribute to Albert Einstein the saying that “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results” (even though it’s fairly certain he never DID say that). I have a NEW definition of insanity, one with which I think many of you will agree.



The definition of insanity is “expecting cat behavior to make sense or conform to prior cat behavior”. My cats are in league to drive me crazy (or crazier than I am already). I absolutely MUST get healthy and get OUT of the house and AWAY from them.


We’re sisters. We like hanging out together. Sometimes.

Cat beds. I will never ever again buy a bed for a cat. My dog was wonderful. I bought her a bed and she used it. She was CONSISTENT in where she slept and what she did. She was, in hindsight, perfect.


I’m so cute

BC spent the day today in what I have been calling her bed in front of the fireplace. GC spent the day on the red couch, in my husband’s seat, keeping company with the WC, who was in HER familiar spot on the back of the red couch. Until we went in and spoke to them. Apparently THAT changed the aura in the house.


I’d forgotten how much I like the radiator

WC is now comfortably ensconced in the ORIGINAL cat bed – the one that was hers, until GC gave it cooties. BC – in her bed. GC – on the radiator. My husband saw her approach what we thought was now her bed. GC saw WC in the bed and turned around and went to the radiator. (Actually she went and sat on MY work chair because I was not in it at the moment. When I chased her off so that I could sit she headed to the radiator.)


What? This is MY bed now. Again. Sometimes.

3 cats. 3 beds. One might think that every cat could have a bed. But apparently that is NOT how cats think. Apparently the original bed no longer has cooties. Apparently the newest bed is unappealing. Apparently WC has a new game – driving me bonkers. I do not care HOW ill I feel next week – I am NOT working from home!!!!


Except for when it is MY bed. Now. Sometimes.


WHY do cats sit with their faces against a wall?? I don’t think this is a healthy pose. 😦

    Hahahahahahaha! They are so funny!!!!! But yes, it is so frustrating!!! There are 3 beds and 3 cats. Why can’t each cat pick a bed and stick to it?

    My BFF is babysitting two cats…brothers…while their parents are in China. The one cat claimed the soft, cloud-like comforter on the couch so Santa brought a new bed for the other cat. Guess who decided they prefer the new bed over the comforter? My friend Facetimed me last night so I could see that cat lounging on the new bed while his brother was on the very edge of it with his face face-planted down on it, similar to how your cat has his face planted against a wall. This guy was face DOWN. Only his face was on the new bed, next to lounging brother’s butt.

    I told her DO NOT buy a second bed. Just…don’t.

    I seconded your advice: NO MORE CAT BEDS! *grin* Or buy as many cat beds as you please but pay NO ATTENTION to how they get used. 🙂
