Cat Bullshit. ARG!

Have I mentioned how tiered I am of my damn cats…how much they are slowly killing me and causing marriage problems.
While one is peeing on crap, which has had done for years, but seemingly does so in random cycles, the other is waking me 3-4 times a night bawling and scratching at my door…She has NEVER been aloud in my bedroom, but has decided this week, after 9 years, that she want’s in at night. Last night she woke me up at 2-3-4am, at 4am, I was exausted today…Then when I got home from Natashia’s at midnight, she bolted out the damn door and into the woods, I couldn’t get her back and I need my sleep…I am stressed cause she dosen’t go outside but this summer she is trying to every chance she gets…
So I post on facebook about how I am done with her, and if she want’s to be outside so bad and bolting out at night then why should I be chassing her and loosing sleep,’s her choice.

Anyways, of course a friend has to jump right in and judge me.
Here is our facebook conversation for you:


Indoor cats should STAY indoors!!
Jaime Maynard

Tell that to my cat who bolts out the door every single chance she get’s…including right now at midnight as I was comming home for the night. We are surrounded by woods and she ran into them, this is the third time she did this summer. She screams at the door the ENTIRE time we sit at our deck, and then bolts between people’s legs when they go into the house. I am sooooooooo fed up one cat want outside obsessively, the other cat won’t stop pissing on my stuff..grrr

You need to be aware each and every time you either enter or leave in order to save her life. I don’t want to sound mean, but that’s a part of parenting.. I hit a cat on the highway a couple weeks ago and killed it. That’s not something I wish for anyone to experience. Put a leash on her or fence in your yard.
Jaime Maynard

I know you don’t want to be mean darling, but we got a quote and it was $2000 to fence in my yard…so not gonna happen this year when we just bought the house.
It is night time, and I blocked her with my legs as best I could and she got around them, usually I can stop her, but 3 times this summer she got out cause she is fast. Please do not put Read Morethis on me, I have done everything I can for my cats, I have had Jewel for 10 years and she is in perfect health, so I would say I have been a good damn parent. Each case has to looked at seperatly and not generalized that if a cat get’s out the parent must suck.
Jaime Maynard

I would gladly leash her, I just never let her out period. The leash is not going to help at midnight when I am headed to bed, not gonna sit outside and supervise her at this time of night. She want’s to be out at night, not during the day, she want’s to hunt.

I’m a strong believer in this subject. With the tax credit, now would be the time to do it. I understand the cost of owning a house.. We custom built ours. 2000 isn’t much in comparison to loosing a family member.
Jaime Maynard

Lisa, again, you have no idea what state we are in…obviously. Remember that my husband was off work for months when he cut off half his hand…we are barely making our mortage and usually in the hole..more then we were. I am having a baby in 5 months. I am not going to argue with you about my irresponsible parenting on facebook tonight, you have not walked a mile in my shoes so please keep your judgement to yourself. I am beyond stressed right now and not able to deal with this.
It’s nice that friends can be so supportive isen’t it. I am stressed and upset that she got out…am I supposed to go out into the woods big and pregnant with a flashlight in the middle of the night??? Oh no, I am supposed to pull 2k out of my ass and build a motherfucking fence. Do you not think I want this..I would love a fenced in yard, We are broke, Dave is going through Bankruptcy, I am trying to dig us out of debt a bit before my mat leave..Dave is working overtime and we are still just breaking even every month with very little left over. Growl. I wish people would think outside their tiny bubble of reality before they talk out their asses.

  2. This Lisa chick sounds like a real cunt.
    Don’t spend any more time and energy focusing on that piece of shit – focus that into positive and into your healthy baby.

    • I know you are right, but for sensitive souls like you and I, I also know it’s not so cut and dry, I wish. I am so hurt, I found myself awake at 4am wondering why? Did I do something to trigger this? Am I am bad person? I may have said or done stupid shit in high school, who knows, but I was a kid.
      I have to stop letting this bother me.

      • I do not suffer fools lightly, and I have no patience for people who want to waste my time; yet even when I have to end a friendship, it hurts so badly. I always doubt myself. I always think it’s me, it’s my fault, because I am the common link. I have a tender heart and am often willing to give people chances to redeem themselves. I have a pretty hard exterior, but deep down I just want to see the best in people. My social circle has shrunken from around 20 good friends to 1 or 2. People grow and change, or people hide their true selves.
        Sometimes it just takes someone else to tell you that you’re doing the right thing.
        And Jaime, you are definitely doing the right thing.

      • Thank you πŸ™‚ my heart is so damn crushed. The drama continues, I hope it can finish today, I was like stop contacting’s over. It’s my damn mother’s fault, she is protective of me cause I am pregnant, so when I called her crying and told her what this girl had done, my mom called her out, mostly since she wanted to defend it was infact her who threw my shower on that day. She souldn’t have said anything it just fueled the fire..fuck, I just want to leave it behind me, it has turned into a whale of fucking drama pent up in her precious mind for 13 years.

  3. WOw. I can’t believe she is talking to you like that about a CAT getting outside. I agree with you totally though. My cat RUNS for the door every time its open. Its hard to block him sometimes and I am definitely not chasing him around outside at night or in the rain or whatever because he wants to be outside. I don’t want him outside but I am just not chasing him. He will come back.
    If shes so worried about you havng a fence, let her buy you one πŸ˜‰

  4. Holy crap. After your reply to her first comment you’d think she would have backed off. Obviously you care and are stressed about the situation. You don’t need more piled on there. I’m sorry. I love my cat, but I know sometimes she can really get on my nerves. *hugs*

    • Sigh, if only it were that simple, this has become the drama of the century, Makes me wish I was not on facebook at all, but I know she would have found another way to get to me.

  5. Wow. Some friend. Bah facebook. Talk about nice “helpful” comments.

  6. Miss high and mighty needs to keep her mouth shut. Ugh!

  7. Ummm, wow. Some people just don’t know when to keep their opinions to themselves.
