8-Bit had a snit last night...

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
DH and I had settled in to watch The War on PBS when 8-Bit awoke from his nightly nap. We knew we were in for a rough night with him when he played, "Beat on Scratch Until He Screams Like a Little Girl". That game is usually reserved for his 3am tear around the apartment.

He ran around here like he was a kitten again. Climbing things, trying to get into cupboards, attempting to open the refrigerator, and being an all around PIA. I swear he did laps around this place at 40mph.

Knowing that he needed a ton of attention I decided to nab him, sit him in my lap and give him the ultimate rub down. A half an hour later he was zonked out and sleeping across my head.

Trust me, I do NOT miss his kitten days.

Sounds like he hasn't left his kitten days.

I think it's the full moon.

I was attacked last night by an unnamed Bengal, and Ginger has been acting like a kitten for the last several days, playing up a storm.

Yeah, that's it, it's the Harvest Moon combined with the summer solstice...yeah....

No kidding... I forgot tomorrow is a full moon. I should look forward to the same thing tonight I suppose.

Tell me about it. It must be the full moon or something. I had Linus tearing around the house at 3 A.M. which isn't unusual, however this morning Sassy decided to join in as well. I had both of them playing commando kitty from the top of the dresser.
Linus is pretty small so when he jumps on you it's annoying but not life-threatening. When Sassy jumps on you it's like getting hit by an elephant.

I have said it before It's a good thing they are so cute because if they weren't

That's soo weird!

Tonka had a case of the "crazies" last night too

He's usually really laid back and doesn't have a care in the world. But, last night he was running around the house, meowing, and chasing the cat brats

That must be why Lucy is picking on Carly more than usual. The run-by whacks have been increasing.

Around a full moon, molly starts doing spastic runs jumping from couch to couch and darting at yasmine.

My 3 have been acting up too! They've just been acting rather crazy, nothing too out of the ordinary for Joey and Kahlua, but Chablis has starting running around with them at 3 am! It sounds like a herd of elephants chasing each other...

Our cats are behaving normally, but last night I noticed my mom climbing the drapes...

Our kitties have been psycho as well, but that's normal for them.

Smudge has just pulled a rolled up bandage off the coffee table, then a pen, then a little silver ring, then another pen, then my sunglasses, and the iPod, and now she's trying to pull the kitty nail scissors off.

Yes, I should just clean the coffee table up, but she has so much fun pulling everything off

A good meowmy would leave all the stuff up there for her to play with!

It has got to be a full moon. Ophelia just let PJ get within 5' of her & she didnt' attack!

I agree! full moon mania! Although Mollie and Sophie are just fine, Cosmo has been having a nutty! Who said Ragdolls are couch potatoes? I have had to close the blinds to the sliding glass doors, because he is running so fast and recklessly, I don't want him to try and "run" through the glass doors! And he gets so mad if he can't get his way...this morning he was trying to squeeze into a small hanging house on the big cat tree. He was able to fit in it for about 2 days when I first got him and since then has shown no interest in this thing - well this AM he decided he just had to get in it again, and couldn't do it!
He could get his front end in and one back leg, then he would fall out of it! I was laughing so hard - especially when he started to verbally (can't cats do verbal?) express his annoyance. It was so obvious that he was really frustrated! Gotta love those babies!

Just to confirm -- yes, the full moon is the 26th -- tomorrow. No wonder the zanies are on the rise.

Oh it's happening here at my house too!

Mooch has recently developed an obsession with my squirt bottle in the bathroom. If anyone even goes near the bathroom she jumpes up and meows and meows and meows at the top of her lungs for you to get the bottle. She then chases the stream of water either in the tub or in the sink. I mean she really goes wacko!!!!

That must have been funny to watch. The other night Lexi was running around my room like a madman, back and forth, on and off the bed, while I was trying to sleep.

Bob was acting strange last night as well. He hid under the bed (he usually only does that if there's company over) and refused to eat chicken & shrimp flavored cat food. He actually came over and swatted me! He wanted the tuna & shrimp and he wanted it NOW!

Last night I think the moon was at its fullest - has it got any worse for you?

I admit I barely got a wink of sleep, due to the kitty F1 racing going on around the flat until at least 3am, I think our bed was the hairpin bend of the course Honestly it was dreadful, Sonic pouncing Radar, Radar pouncing Sonic, fighting on the bed, Sonic screaming, and the constant thunder of them stampeding around the flat.

As if that wasn't enough, I woke up this morning to find that Radar had stolen the covers and had made a nest with them under the bed. Someone ended up getting enough sleep and it certainly wasn't me! Although Nate claims to have slept through it, I distinctly remember him sitting bolt upright in bed at about 2.30am and pleading with the cats to give it a rest
