I have a cat. Her name is Oz. She is 2 years old.
Last spring, she took a ride in the dryer when I put a shirt in to fluff and didn’t notice her sleeping little form. Lucky for her, only twenty minutes went by when I decided to throw another shirt in the dryer to fluff.
I panicked. I called Hubs at work screaming, “I KILLED THE CAT!!!” into the phone while watching her slink around on the floor, blood and drool dripping from her mouth and eyes black as coal. We live two houses down from a vet, so I grabbed the poor little darling and ran (and I mean RAN).
It’s obvious she survived, but it’s likely she lost 2 or 3 of her lives because of it.
The reason I tell you this story is because I think it’s directly linked to my cat’s behavior toward me of late. You see, she likes attacking my head when I’m sleeping. It’s a common event to wake up at least once a week either when she jumps on my head, or just before the leap onto my head… Until the other night when her tactics changed.
I was in bed, doing my nightly zzz’s when I was woken by a strange sensation. I half open my eyes and see the cat sniffing at my mouth. The cat is on me, sniffing. At. My. Mouth. It was odd, but she’s been through a dryer cycle, so odd behavior from her is the norm. That’s what I thought until she did the next thing.
She kissed me.
I’m not talking about scraping her tongue across my mouth. I’m talking about putting her mouth on my mouth for several seconds. Hubs, who witnessed the entire thing as he had just gotten into bed, was all, “Awww!”
I… was scared for my life.
You’ve either seen or read Cat’s Eye by Stephen King, right? If not, stop reading right here and go get the book or watch the movie (I’d recommend the book though) and then come back when you’re done because spoilers.
You see, when my cat did that, the only thing I could think was of Cat’s Eye, but instead of the cat saving my life from the troll that invaded my body, the cat tried to SUCK MY SOUL AWAY!!! This was confirmed when, a couple of days ago, I’m relaying this story to my sister and before I even get to the part where the cat is eating my soul, she cuts in and explains the rest to me exactly as it happened! Either she’s psychic or I’m not the only one with cat issues.
