So you think you know who your friends are...

yesterday I went to hang with my good friends TiTo at there house in the SUBURBS (see previous post for source of sarcasm) and we took the toddler with us. I have mentioned their PSYCHO cat Jinks before and she reinforced why pets are a reflection of their owners... am I calling my dear dear friend psycho? you be the judge

Ti: Don't let the baby near the cat - the cat is freaked out! (the cat is clearly not freaked out)
Cammy walks up to said cat - cat sniffs baby [fyi-cat is declawed] baby smiles gigles and pets cat remarkably gently for a one year old
Ti: "Ohhhh no!!! Get Jinksie! Get Cammy - shes gonna hiss or something!!"
cat walks aprox 1.5 feet lays down and grooms - baby promptly follows stoops down and pets cat again - cat bats at the baby's hand and walks behind the couch. Cammy attempts to find a way behind the couch tried to move art work ect to get to cat - no luck she comes into kitchen
Ti: "ohh God Raquita Hold her so I can put the cat away shes tramautized."
Kid looks at Ti like -'She's funny.' Cat looks at Cammy like 'Wow I didn't know they came in that size' Jerry and I are cracking up because anyone with children knows you loose that hyper sensitivity after two weeks of parenthood or you get committed. I can't believe shes had it this long with the cat.

Your ass is so dead! I specifically asked you not to post last nights fiasco on your dang blog! What is with you? Your dead meat! By the way, Jinxy, as I stated previously, would not let me touch her last night not even to pet after you guys left. This morning after I rubbed her back for about 5 minutes, finally let me pick her up. She walked around the house upstairs and checked every room for signs of you, Jerry and Cam for about 20 minutes...I told you dammit she was freaking out! I was thinking about putting her on anxiety meds...maybe zanax or prozac? She really is very fragile. Okay Raquita.....yes I'm psycho and yes she gets it from me, but I love her. You have Jerry and Cam. I have Tony and Jinxy. That's the deal. Leave me the hell alone! Love you!

It is funny how we can impose what we think on what we think our kids think. We get so embarrassed when they act up at someone's house...and they just look at you like chill out mom, it's cool. You are sure that they are concoting evil plans to make you want to follow them to make sure that they dont tear up the house. And they are just doing whatever comes up in thier mind. :) I know many people who love thier pets like kids. And it is just an amusing thing how much we worry about the ones we love. Especially the little ones dependent on us. :) With or without fur. (And I also think it is funny that those of us with kids CANNOT imagine that our friends who have animals feel the same way....we think that is insane..and they think we are insenstive for not understanding. LOL)

Mind you I felt this way about her cat BEFORE I had the baby - when she wouldn't get another cat cause it would tramatize Jixy. HELLO?!?! you know anybody who doesn't have another kid cause the first kid won't adapt well - then gets rid of the second kid after a hour cause the first kid pouted about it? This is the story of Mengis the kitten and Jinx the cat. fo real tho!

Why you bringin' up old stuff? The Mingus thing was off the chain dude. We LOVED Mingus but I LOVE Jinxy more. I told you she was freaking out! Same thing. Must we revisit the Mingus episode? I really wanted Jinx to have a companion. Lest we forget, Jinx has been THE baby since she was 6 weeks old. I took her with her mother Jasmine's approval July 2001. She has NO social skills whatsoever and I am about as neurotic as they come. TiTo is drama free at the house 99% of the time so Jinxy in distress was too much for me. She wouldn't eat, or use her box. Honestly, I was afraid that she was going to develop a urinary tract infection. She was that upset. She was throwing up...dude it was 24 hours of hell!!! I cried real tears because I had done this to my baby. Yes it doesn't make since to some but it was that deep for me. Let me put it this way. Let's say that you decided that Cam needed a companion and you choose a snake. Every time she looked at it she screamed bloody murder. She became so upset that she couldn't sleep at night, wouldn't eat. Wouldn't you remove said snake and charge it to the game? Exactly. Now of course you couldn't get rid of the second kid in your silly little example. Hello, it's a human being. Then again, I know some people that I've had to give back for some of the same reasons. I still love you but it is fading fast. There has been a disturbance in the force. By the way, cousinsarah, will you be my cousin too? Your freakin fabulous! There is a great benefits package if your interested. Eye, Dental..the whole shabang. Holla

I remember Mingus!

The only cat I have ever liked in my whole life is Tsunami(now there is a cool cat) Seriously, I'm a dog person. I shouldn't even be posting a comment on this post. I don't think Mingus liked me... I don't think Cloud liked me either... Who does Tambora have? That cat doesn't like me either.

You know what? Screw cats...

Awww Tito, yes I WILL be your cousin too. My girlfriend was like that about her greyhound dog she rescued and was the first person to teach me about the role of animals as your kids relationship. And I guess it is possible that your pet pick up your traits as your kids do...cause my kid is JUST LIKE ME. Ya'll are makin me miss home that possible?? :) And Benticore....I am ready for the LOU and all the freaky love you are talkin about.
