Zeus is trying to kill me. He woke me at 5:45a for no reason other than he wanted to talk. Zeus is part siamese. He talks incessantly, and wants me to respond in kind. He doesn’t seem to care what I say, it can be human or cat speak. Cat speak for me is mimicking his funky little mao mao mao that sounds nothing like a meow. Of course, if he gets no response from me, I then get a cold cat nose in my ear and a long, drawn out, maaaaaaaoooooooooooo, in case the previous 20 times weren’t heard. So, I get up and go to the living room, and once he’s satisfied that I am sitting, alert and attentive, he proceeds to chase, pounce, and basically torment our sweet baby Lulu kitty. Lu is older than Zeus, and was here a few years before Zeus, but as his name implies, he is…Zeus. He rules this realm, and all those who insist on living in it.
