going bananas

So the good news is that Chum is definitely getting his appetite back. 2 nights ago he woke us up at 2:40 in the morning HOWLING for food. Then last night at around 3am, he was running around our bedroom, tossing his banana catnip toy (thank you Karen!) high in the air, then pouncing on it.

Tonight at dinner I asked Tom, "Did you hear Chumley playing with his banana toy last night??"

Tom says, "No. But I did hear, 'Tom! Tom! Guess what? Chumley's playing with his banana toy!'"

Then he asked that I please wait until the sun rises before sharing news such as this.

The thing is, I have no memory whatsoever of intentionally trying to wake him.

Seriously, I was still asleep.

(Wrigs is a big fan of the banana toy too.)

random fact: When Tom starts snoring, I make these annoying tongue click noises that cause Tom to shoot upright in bed, look over at me all freaked out and then say, "What was that?!?"

And then I tell him I didn't hear anything.

This happens about 14 times a night.

The real question is - did Tom hear YOU playing with YOUR bananana toy?

I'm so glad that his appetite is back (for food and bear), and that he loves his banana-catnip toy! It creacks me up that Wrigley likes it, too...dognip? Does it make him crazy like it does to Chum?

Snoring has got to be one of the WORST things about marriage. I always thought that because Gregg has such a nice, small nose that he wouldn't snore, but he started a few months ago, after almost 19 years of quiet. I have to wear ear-plugs now (which I don't like), and I can still hear him through them! AArgh! It's so difficult to feel chipper after all of the wake-ups. Between the hunger, catnip and the snoring, you are going to need a nap.

Yay Chumley! Glad to hear he's eating and waking you up again! :)

So good to hear that Chumley is doing much better. Poor kittie. Our male has had urinary episodes as well and they are no fun.

Love the tongue-clicking response to the snoring. Ha!

Yay for Chum's recovery. And I LOVE the snoring tip. Definitely going to have to try that one. Right now I just push J. and he wakes up but the snoring immediately starts again!
