I hate cats!

Before you cat lovers rush to hang me, let me assure you that I had a cat while growing up & loved her dearly. Tiger was a great cat. But now we have a neighborhood stray who seems to have taken up residence under our house. (Apparently there's cat-sized access to our crawl space.) Hubby and I thought this would be great at first, as a stray cat will usually help keep the mouse population down.

However, THIS stray has the annoying habit of meowing LOUDLY... loudly enough to wake me up from a sound sleep in the middle of the night. Even more annoying?? The cat sounds freakishly like our 3mo baby girl.

So last night (this morning) about 3am I wake from a sound sleep, hearing Little Miss whining in her crib. Since she always sleeps through the night, I went hurling from our bed to go see what was her grief before she woke up her brother (aka BD#1). When I get in their room, I find they're both sound asleep, but the sound that woke me is now easily recognized as a CAT rather than a baby.

Dang cat!! *grumbles* I'd kick it if I could get to it..... :-D

you & JeffRex could start a club.

and someday, when I become a Hebrew teacher, you shall both serve as my illustrations of the Hiphil causative verb form: "to cause to be killed"

Ollie tripped over something in Sam's closet around 3:00 this morning and woke him up (the cat was hiding to avoid the basement) ... Samwise promptly threw the cat in the basement and went back to sleep. The end.

ROFL. So is there a causative verb form for "to throw to the basement"??? :-D

Would that be "just because it exists"??
