Anyone who has visited here more than a couple of times
knows I have two cats.
And I imagine everyone knows I talk to them.
Like all the time.
I think I am a normal mama of catkids.
When I awake I say good morning and ask about their night
and if they have any plans for the day.
When I leave home I say good-bye and tell them to be good.
When I come back I tell them about my day and who I saw and where I went.
I tell them my troubles and my triumphs.
When I go to bed I say good night and ask them not to play on the bed.
They listen and sometimes respond with meows of many kinds and purrs.
I listen to them and sometimes understand what they have to say.
Not often but sometimes.
Cat speak is a difficult language to learn but, I am trying.
More often than not they look at me with pity,
give me a gentle swat, and go off to take a nap.
I think this is normal for catkids of a mama who is a people.
I am posting this as part of
