Cannibalism WTF??

I hate the daylight savings time change.  It totally screws me up.

I hate my cats now.   They do not let me sleep at night with all their shennanigans.

So between the two I am suffering horrible insomnia....oh I can get to sleep.  its all this other crap that wakes me up and prevents me from joyful REM sleep

Let me introduce the feline team and some background info:

We have 3 cats:  Dash, Chip and Belle.  They are all rescue cats, we use Pawsibilities in Daytona Beach area they do a great job, check with Kim she is wonderful.

This is Dash, our oldest.   White cat with the bluest eyes....really well behaved but has become somewhat of a chubby chap.   They say white cats with blue eyes are deaf, that is not the case with him as his significant Pavlovian response when you open the pantry in the kitchen and he is awoken from deep cat nap at the other end of the house.  Not deaf, definitely fat (he doesnt look it here as he stretches out and reclines in the wonderful sunny heat on our back porch)

Here is Chip and Belle.... Chip is on the left, Belle on the right

Belle is a all girl....affection and attention is strictly at her convenience and on her terms.  She sleeps the whole night and is really a good kitty, but definitely a Diva

Chip....he is our problem child.  His work shift starts after 2 am.  Knocking stuff off tables and desktops and chewing wires and making and raising a ruckus with feline frolicking.  He stirs the other 2 up.  He is adorable and cute during the day, but night time is a terror

Of course this wakes me up....I can then cannot get to sleep.

What the hell is the deal with the time change?  Why is it necessary now?  Kids going to school in the morning?  Let em start later in the sunshine dont change the damn time cmon people!  Farmers needing extra daylight to harvest and all that crap? Bovine Scatology, all the farmers I know start work before dark anyway and finish when its dark.  Hard working people God bless them!  So we dont need to change the time due to daylight savings time.

I find that I cannot go to sleep at night and cannot wake up in the morning.

So between the cats and time change I am without sleep, and as I lay there at night unable to sleep I start thinking crazy stuff like cannibalism.

Why would people resort to that?  It seems to be based out of indigenous peoples in warm regions like Africa and South Pacific were there would be plentiful other food choices, why resort to as they call "long pig"?  Only western based cannibalism is when people are stuck in a mountain due to plane crash or in a mountain pass on a wagon train stuck due to blizzard.  The rule is stay out of snow then if cannibalism is not your thing

But what would the menu be like in a cannibal restaurant?   Would you have Prime Minister Rib, Old Man and the Sea (surf and turf) or 3 Men and a Baby (platter)?

This is the crap I think of at night when not sleeping....Cannibalism??? WTF!!!

I just need some sleep.


  1. Hope that whole cannibalism thing works out for you. I think striped cats are just evil. We have a little striped furball of terror as well that is slowly stealing our souls, one hour of missed sleep at a time.

  2. i have an infected cat scratch right now. because i tried to unload the dishwasher. apparently clean dishes are verboten around here now.

    stupid cat.

  3. I have been impressed with the tv show "My Cat From Hell", the host is a cat whisperer...

    We play for a half hour or more at night to spend some of their energy and burn up their hunting instinct.... Then feed them and go to bed. That actually works! But have been tired and missed a couple of nights. There are like 3 energy cycles of play with them...each one lesser than the other. The first one is high jumps and acrobatics and then they lay on their side until the next burst of energy

    We also wake them up during the day periodically...

    If we stick to the plan it does work

    Pensive, my Donna has a few love bites and scratches... thankfully not infected... I remain unscathed
