as soon as i got home last night my dad began an arguemtn about how i never spend time with my cats, so they bother him, i apologized and im like well, i go to school and work everyday, im lucky to get 6 hrs of sleep a night, or even a meal.. i dont have time to spend alot of time with the cats. his response is that well, if i dont have time for them, then we shouldnt have cats, he spent all night threatening to get rid of my cats one at a time, saying that they are too needy and that raine has too much fur and gets fur everywhere and that they're flea control costs too much. all i could say to him was "well dont worry me and the cats will be out of here by july" of corse as soon as i said that my dad gets all defensive with "oh well uh uh uh... um.." he just says that he didnt want 3 cats so he has the authority to get rid of them if he wants. then he tried to be just plain stupid and say that hes gonna put the litter box in my bedroom next to my bed and make the cats stay in my tiny room that way they dont bother him when hes trying to relax. so according to him i should get dysentary by having cat poop near my face while i sleep.

i think things are going TOO great and he just wants to fuck things up.

then he starts the regular complaint of, "when you and james got home you made too much noise in the kitchen, i wanted you guys to just get out of the house." then he says i spend too much time with james and tht since i go to school and work everyday i should spend my time off with the cats and not with james. i dont know what his problem is.

ah wth. I understand everything you said but it don't make sense. How hard is it to pet the cat while you watch TV?

ya, i do. im always holding my cats and stuff. but im only home 12 hrs of the day, thats including the 8 hrs that im spossed to sleep and the 1 it takes me to get ready for school and the 2 hrs i spend cleaning the house almost everyday. that leaves me 1 hr of time.. but my dad is mad that i go to school and work everyday. he thinks that since i have a schedule like that i should get rid of the cats.

no I mean whats his problem. why can't he just deal with them?

also, I have 2 dogs and they just entertain each other all day. Do cats not play together?

2004-09-21 05:59:28 ET

ya my cats play together. and he says that since he didnt want the cats he shouldnt have to play with them. and he shouldnt have to feed them. im like well i cant come home from school randomly and play wtiht them when they just entertain themselves..

bah. parents just always need something to complain about. otherwise they feel they aren't doing their jobs.

in fact the only thing my parents have that they can complain about anymore is the fact that I will occasionally forget to clean up after myself

2004-09-21 06:04:27 ET

that just makes him sound like a jackass.
oh i wont be nice enough to feed them.
its your responsiblit to petthem and get them all tired of playing so they dont bother me!
geez man...

2004-09-21 06:07:43 ET

blah. he's just bein dumb. nothing you can do

2004-09-21 06:08:21 ET

i told him that its his fault they bother him, coz if we didnt live at the print shop and we actually had a house they would stay there during the day and not bother him at work. but if he refused to get a house then they will bother him.

2004-09-21 06:15:18 ET

its fucked up cuz he's being apprihensive(sp) twards an animals love.

geez. and his work room has a door!
maybe he should use it!
