My cat, Susie, is seven years old. We've had her for four years now. She's somewhat skittish (doesn't like to be cornered, picked up, or petted by the wrong person). She's not a vocal cat. Whenever we go into the laundry room (where her food dish is) she'll give a few pathitic half meows, but that's it.
For the past three weeks she's been nutty.
Several monthes ago, I bought her a fuzzy ball that made a noise when you moved it. She never did play with it that much. At Christmas, I got her a fuzzy mouse.
Pretty much every morning for the past three weeks, she'll wake me up between 4 and 7 am. She'll be out in the family room, meowing and meowing and meowing. Twice I went out in the laundry room to feed her... after she's done eating, she'll meow and meow and meow. Then she'll come into my room and start playing with that darn ball, (which was not in the room when I went to sleep!) So I'll chuck the ball out of my room and ten minutes later, she'll bring it in again. I get up some mornings and both her ball and her mouse are at the foot of my bed. This morning she picked the ball up in her mouth, ran into my room and started batting it around.
She never used to be this hyper and even my mom is finding that the cat is being nutty.
Is it a normal thing for a cat to go from reserved to crazy hyper?!
It's cute... but not at 4 in the morning :P
Maybe it's a midlife crisis or something.
Anyways, I hope somebody got a kick out of this.
