I came to work with a wrinkled skirt...
What is my cat trying to teach me?

I'm not a big fan of ironing; especially if I'm "pressed for time" (hehe) so I put on my skirt this morning, figuring it didn't look too bad. In the light of day it didn't look too good either; so when I arrived at work, I went into my trusty drawer full of stuff - and pulled out my rarely used, but neccessary travel sized can of fabric relaxant. I read the directions 1. Pull wrinkled area taut - not a problem, as this skirt is already a little taut on me :)Spray generously - ok, but not too generously since I'm still wearing it. 2. Wait ten seconds and pull fabric taut again - got it. 3. Smooth away wrinkles with hands - uh huh. Result? acceptable; and good enough so I don't get those crazy looks from strangers - like something is just not right with the world cause I have on a wrinkled piece of clothing. People are funny. My cat, though loveable is not. She's wearing on my last nerve. She likes to talk alot. No, you don't understand. I mean ALOT, Incessantly, 14 hours of the 24 there are in a day (unless she's talking to herself when I'm not there; which I doubt); from the time she (not me) wakes up until she (not me) goes to sleep. She has always vocalized, but now she's kicked it up a notch. I think part of the reason is because I have restricted her access to the window that has a quasi-terrace, where she would go in and out. I'm sorry, but the air conditioner goes in that window every year during the summer months, and as far as I'm concerned, it's Summer. The other reason probably has to do with her being on a diet now. She's an indoor cat who doesn't get a lot of excercise, and her tummy was hanging and she was doing the wobbly-walk. She was a little chubby. To anyone thinking, "That cat is crying cause she's starving!!", let me assure you, she's definitely not. She could live off the fat around her gut quite a while, with nary a rib showing. I'm doing this for her own good and mine. Recently, I was reading that when a animal and/or person underfeeds as opposed to overfeeds, they live longer. I was her enabler. I gave her food in part, as a way to show love, to keep her occupied etc... and though she may have liked eating all day, it wasn't healthy. I related this story to someone who remarked, "I guess if you aren't eating, she's not either". I guess not.
