Our cat just mews when he decides it's food time. If he gets overexcited because we're cuddling he starts attacking my hand.

shadow-light 09-03-2021 07:29 PM

my cat scratches doors and yells a lot when hungry

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 07:31 PM

When we had cats at home they were pretty chill. Just hung around the barn a lot

nonperson 09-03-2021 08:11 PM

I have a yelling cat too.

Maybe the answer is to keep them in a barn to catch their own food whenever they want it.

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 08:15 PM

Ours lived in the barn (with adequate warmth) and they did catch their own food! And left the carcasses under all the horses rugs. Always fun cleaning out the barn!
Of course we fed them too

nonperson 09-03-2021 08:18 PM

That's kinda what my cat does, except he lives in my house and leaves the carcasses under my bed!

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 08:20 PM

Delightful! :p

nonperson 09-03-2021 08:29 PM

He's the best. =P

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 08:31 PM

I love cats.
More of a dog person but cats are still awesome.
I think I'm just an animals person!

nonperson 09-03-2021 08:33 PM

Yep! All animals are awesome. I made friends with cows at work the other day and it was honestly the best bit of the day!

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 08:39 PM

Awww cows are adorable!

nonperson 09-03-2021 08:40 PM

They're cool. Freaky weird long tongues though. =P

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 08:45 PM

Yeah definitely!
I used to live next to a cow farm as a young child and loved going to pet them!

nonperson 09-03-2021 08:49 PM

Aw, sweet. I have a cow farm across the road, can hear them mooing sometimes.

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 08:50 PM

There are sometimes cows in a field where I like to walk. They are very curious!
Lots of posts about them on the local pages when they're in that field

nonperson 09-03-2021 09:11 PM

Sounds like they get a lot of attention. =)

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 09:13 PM

They do!
Lots of moaners out there too.
But mostly it's positive!

nonperson 09-03-2021 09:18 PM

Why would anyone moan about a field of happy cows?! Grumpy bastards...

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 09:19 PM

Some people just can't be helped!

nonperson 09-03-2021 09:40 PM

And they're not worth stressing about. Leave them be in their cowless and joyless lives! >.>

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 09:42 PM

I completely agree!

I'm going to bed early. Had my meds and a sleeping pill so hopefully I'll sleep soon!
Good night and sleep well :)

nonperson 09-03-2021 09:44 PM

Night night. Hope you can get some rest. =)

I'm probably gonna go soon as well.

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 10:28 AM

Morning everyone

One of my dreams was that Jo Brand and David Baddiel were helping me pack up my house!
They weren't very helpful

tamobhuuta 10-03-2021 10:44 AM

How odd. Was it fun or frustrating?

I got confused, thinking it was 10am instead of 9am.

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 10:55 AM

It was fun!

How odd!
How are you tamo?

tamobhuuta 10-03-2021 12:33 PM

I am ok. Do you have any plans for today?

one_step_closer 10-03-2021 12:50 PM

Dreams are weird. Time is too hard to understand in the morning.

tamobhuuta 10-03-2021 12:55 PM

Hi osc how are you?

one_step_closer 10-03-2021 12:57 PM

I can feel a big ball of upset inside me, don't know when it will come out or what will happen. I'm trying hard to be ok.

What will you be doing today?

shadow-light 10-03-2021 01:06 PM

How's people today?

I've made THREE phone calls so despite now being tired and headaches and fairly proud :-D

tamobhuuta 10-03-2021 01:12 PM

Osc, that's not good
Shadow, well done

I'm going to try to stay not-anxious

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 01:15 PM

I've just been to asda and doing some washing and that's all I have to do today.

I'm sorry lindsay. Anything I can do?

Well done Hazel!

That's a good plan tamo

is it possible for you to dirrect the ball into some creative or whatever just give the emotions an outlet? I appreciate this isnt always doable \nd could even be something youve tried already

one_step_closer 10-03-2021 01:35 PM

Well done Hazel!

I'm not really great with creative things I'm just hoping things settle themselves while I'm trying to stay busy.

I hope you can have an anxiety free day Tamo.

Did you get anything nice from Asda Beckie?

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 01:58 PM

Just the usual boring stuff
And topped up the gas card.
I'm so boring and predictable

not_so_insig 10-03-2021 02:54 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 02:59 PM

Hi dawn

not_so_insig 10-03-2021 03:18 PM

I have an headache :-( . It's improved after painkillers and food though.

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 03:26 PM

Glad its improved

one_step_closer 10-03-2021 03:52 PM

I think most of what we all do now is boring and predictable, Beckie.

I'm glad your headache is a bit better Dawn.

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 03:56 PM

Very true lindsay

one_step_closer 10-03-2021 06:32 PM

What's everyone up to this evening?

nonperson 10-03-2021 06:38 PM

Taskmaster inspired dream!!

Just tv and internetting this evening for me. What about you, Lindsay?

I'm annoyed with my GP surgery as usual. They left me a nearly indecipherable voicemail asking me to call them, pretty sure the word vaccination was in there, so I called back, was on hold for 25 mins before giving up, called back again after work, to only be told they don't know why someone rang me so they'll get someone else to call me tomorrow sometime. It was definitely them. They never seem to know why they've asked me to call! *pulls out hair*

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 06:39 PM

Definitely taskmaster inspired!

Ugh that's so frustrating np!

tamobhuuta 10-03-2021 06:46 PM

I'm going to drink a coffee mindfully!

nonperson 10-03-2021 06:49 PM

Really frustrating. I should be used to it by now though. =/

not_so_insig 10-03-2021 06:57 PM

I have spent a ridiculous amount of time asleep today. I blame my headache. But it's nearly gone.

Anyone used the app to good to go? I have placed my first order at a local shop in the next village. Be interesting to see what I get. I am hoping for a cake.

Cacoethes 10-03-2021 07:02 PM

Sounds good tamo!

GPs are never easy to deal with

tamobhuuta 10-03-2021 07:13 PM

Mmm cake. A local shop here does a great Victoria sponge.

not_so_insig 10-03-2021 08:43 PM

I have been to get my bag. It's very windy outside. I got some salted caramel cupcakes amongst other stuff.
