both cats

Pondering the felines

I think perhaps our house has been the scene of a strange Invasion of the Feline Body Snatchers. Some alien force has surely replaced our cats with pod-cats, because I can find no other explanation for the fact that their personalities have completely altered in the past year or so. The Smart Cat has become oddly cuddly, and The Dumb Cat has become oddly independent (but also, simultaneously, more fond of being petted, whereas before she only liked to sit on you and not be touched).

The Smart Cat has also begun having frequent nightmares, and when I wake her from them (I hate to just let her lie there, twitching and mewling pitifully), she begins talking to me with all kinds of various meows, as if she's telling me all about her dream.

It's an odd species.
