Crazy Cat

The cats woke me up at noon today. It took me a while to figure it out, but Shiva was keeping Spirit from the litterbox and she really needed to go! So I caught Shiva and took him into the bedroom with me, but she never went into the utility room (after all, I caught Shiva, I might catch her!) so I left him in there and caught her and shut her into the utility room where it took her 30 minutes to come out from behind the water heater and do her business and I finally let them both out. I got back to bed at 1:30 and since I'd planned to get up at 2, I turned the alarm off and slept until 3:30.

The Code Red and Orange were east of here, so I went out to get groceries and people were driving their carts like crazy people in the aisles. When I got to the deli for sandwich meat, she told me a dozen people had left the store without their meat and cheese (new machine where they can choose what and how much they want, take a number, and keep shopping, to come back when the number is called).

When I got home I filled the fountain and birdfeeder and am washing cat blankies. My back hurts a lot from walking rapidly chasing and picking up cats, so I'm going to sit in the recliner and watch TV for a bit before I come back for more LJ.
