Seriously So Needy!

Allow me to vent for a moment. I hope you don't mind. I'm so sick and tired of Tristin being gone on his meditation retreat! I say Enough is ENOUGH!! this past week our distance has worn on my patience. I am officially patience-spent and semi cranky/whiny/ wanting to kill something! I've held a spider hostage in a glass cup for almost 24 hours now. Pretty morbid, I know. However, I'm not going to kill it although I DID say I want to kill something. I just keep forgetting to take it outside and right now it's too cold for me to leave the apartment. I hope it has enough oxygen to live til the morning. I named him Jim.

Meet Jim. He's my hostage. And yes, I catch spiders with a card that has a cartoon spider on! Quite comical and slightly weird


As far as my time with Sopfia goes, lets say our honeymoon stage is over (for me, that is)! I do not have enough arms to do the things I need to do and hold her 24/7. Oh heaven, what am I going to do when I have kids?? I need to go back to taking care of plants! They don't need attention.

I can't stand needy animals because I'm such a sucker for their longing eyes and sad faces. I normally give in and give them what they want which, in most cases, is my attention. However, I just don't have the time to give my undivided attention these days.

Here's an example of what I mean by needy:

The other night I was walking to get something. The cat was watching me from the floor with a calculating expression on her face. All of a sudden she pounced on my legs while i was in mid-stride, clung there and then propelled herself from my legs to my shoulder where she dug her claws into my skin and held on there until I supported her weight with my arms. I have 3 puncture marks in my skin on my neck from where she hung from. NOT EVEN KIDDING! At first I thought she was attacking me until I realized what it was she really wanted. Apparently Sopfia wanted to cuddle and be held right there and then. She didn't want to wait and what Sopfia wants, Sopfia gets!

Is it possible to feel smothered with attention from a cat? I didn't know cats were so needy!
