I hate cats....

No, not regular cats...I am talking about the ones outside howling for some special attention....if you know what I mean.

All night....yes all 8 hours of what was scheduled to be uninterupted beauty sleep turned into a concert of wailing and sounding exactly like a young child.

I heard the noise first when I was a teen and spent a couple hours listening and trying to find the "toddler" that made its way out of bed in the middle of the night and unwaringly out into the street.

While everyone slept I heard the noise outside searched for it. Boy did I feel stupid when I found two furry friends sharing a private moment in the bushes. I got angry and from that moment I voted cats off my favorite list and stuck with my good ol' mangy dumb dogs.

They may bark ALL NIGHT, but they never sound like a baby.

Oh dear. I'm sorry you lost sleep over the hub bub.

We had a cat that used to sound exactly like a baby- and he was a very LOUD cat. Impossible to ignore when he wanted your attention.

The howling drives me insane!! Next time have Don find it and tag it with his beebee gun!!

I hate cats too. Howling or no howling. They are just plain gross.

You already know this, but I hate cats! They are noisy, annoying, and I have an aversion to them from my early days. :-)
