So i was laying on the trampoline today, trying to get some sun, and my darn cat is meowing and carrying on, she wants to come lay next to me. So here she comes, its like 90 outside, and this ball of fur wants to lay on me! She always wants to lay on my right side too, right at my bag, but i wont let her,she has claws, lol.
so i get her to move over to my left side where she promptly sprawls out as much as she can.
Then all of a sudden, my stoma lets out this HUGE noise, like i think it could be heard in space, and she jerks her head up, in attack mode, ready to get whatever this monster is! Well it kept making noises, and she is looking all around, trying desperately to figure out where the danger is, lol. Finally she gives up and runs away!
She came back later, and i attempted to jump to get her to leave, she promptly ate some leaves and laid back down.
Finally after getting a static shock off my foot, she ran away for good, lol.
So tomorrow when i get ready to go out there, i am gonna make sure i eat something to give me LOTS of gas so i can freak her out again!

I can see you now, eating a bowl of baked beans, saying "I'll get you, my kitty..."

Awwwwww, send kitty over here, I won't let her get freaked out (mind you, my "ADD child" aka Xena might pounce on her a bit, "Timid Child" aka Leia will just keep her distance).

They're wonderful aren't they? I call them my living hot water bottles. Mind you, not so nice in summer but what's a Meowmie to do? lol

Both of mine seem to have a sixth sense re my ostomy. If they're going to lie on top of me they always manage to choose the side opposite my ostomy. I did have a near miss a couple of years ago when ADD child decided to jump on my tummy first thing in the morning (when I'm wearing the Hindenburg balloon on my belly) but all was good, thank goodness! When in bed at night, it's always easier for ADD Child to use me as a bridge to get to the other side of the bed rather than walk the long way round but so far, no mishaps!

At night, Timid Child tends to curl up on my right side (next to my ileostomy) and ADD Child curls up at my feet.

ohio-there was, i thought about that too, but i cant remember who it was.

i love that, a dog named kitty.
our animals usually have odd names, right now we have a hamster named elephant. I think it is probably a bit confused

We had a cat named puppy. My Pug's always need to be on my lap and they FREAK whenever Oscar makes himself known. It's even better when he farts and the Pug's are smelling the air like mad trying to figure out where the smell is coming from. My cat Beguira (16lb, black panther) HAS to sleep on my left side right up close to Oscar. He has a sixth sense and when I was having a Crohn's flare, he wouldn't leave my side, now I think he misses the flares and just wants to be close.
