CATS ON TUESDAY
Since probably more then a months I have a problem with Lisa. I can't say that it is a health problem because her fur is soft and shiny, she eats very well and anyway has nothing else in her head but food.
She also doesn't drink more than usual, just normal like her siblings.
She is now 17 years old and looks quite good for her age. Lately she has become very affectionated. She always has to be with one of us and really looks for being with her humans. What she had never done before. Suddenly she wants to be petted and cuddled and follows us everwhere, of course when she is not asleep. Because she sleeps a lot during the day, unfortunately !!
Because during the night the troubles start ! Each night she starts to meauw very strangely at around 1 am ! It sounds a little rusty but is very loud. Sometimes she also curr purrs or makes a noise as if she would call a tomcat, but all tomcats here around are eunuchs and anyway she is spayed. Usually she wants food.
As it is impossible to ignore her, one of us gets up, feeds her and goes to bed again. That was OK in the past. But not now anymore. As soon as she has finished eating she starts meowing again. She sits in the middle of the house and meows and meows. We call her, I get up and put her in my bed, I talk to her, nothing to do, she keeps quiet for a while and then it starts again.
I really have tried everything. I thought maybe she is afraid in the dark as it happens to old people so I left the light on in the kitchen, it worked the first night but then it was over. As she likes to sleep in a basket I put a new one in my room, that too worked one night and then she started again. I really don't know what to do anymore. I don't have the heart to lock in the old girl somewhere where we can't hear her ! But these interruptions of my sleep are not good either. Does anybody know what it could be ??
Madame Lisa during the night !
And the two others are having a Tea Party !
