spoiled baby

We've had Shiva for two months now, and sometimes it feels like having a kid. Not that I know what that feels like, but consider this conversation from yesterday:

Me: Shiva's been whining and crying all day and I don't know what she wants. She has plenty of food and water.

Rick: Is her litter box clean?

Me: Yep. And I've been picking her up when she cries and petting her all day.

Rick: Have you played string?

Me: No.

Rick: Play string with her. That's probably what she wants.

Replace the words "food and water" with "bottles" and "litter box" with "diaper" and possibly even "petting" with "rocking" and you'll see what I mean.

I can just see us with an actual baby that won't stop crying at 3 in the morning. When I wake Rick to complain about it, he'll turn over and say, "Play string with her" before falling back asleep.

That's so funny. Your cat sounds like quite a character. We have four pets, so it seems like we're always discussing one of them. If we ever had kids, we wouldn't have time to deal with them.
You're a born cat owner! The whole reason for having a cat is to spoil them beyond reason. Shiva landed in exactly the right place;)
