Beware the vampire kitties!
They prowl at night,
their eyes alight.
They stalk the unsuspecting,
their fangs long,
their claws longer still.

Beware the vampire kitties
that are…oh my,
just like my feline
snuggled beside me,
purring her love,
and waiting to unleash her wild side at midnight.

  2. I don’t know what my cats do at midnight and I don’t want to know. I am pretty sure they are looking for trouble! And sometimes they come back looking like they’ve found it!

      • That’s what worries me. I don’t want them to spend all their lives too soon. But at the same time they clearly like to prowl – I think they are cat burglars – I can’t take that pleasure away from them. Rex came home one morning with a hurt paw that laid him up for a few days. He moved to eat, but nothing else. He’s black striped cat. He does tend to stay home more, but Katniss, she is the true dare devil and rarely stays home at night, that I can tell. She also thinks shes the QUEEN of the world!

        • I’ve heard that the average lifespan for a strictly outdoor cat is about 10 years and for an indoor cat it’s 15 years or more (Kate lived to 19). On the other hand, an outdoor cat lives a richer, more exciting life. Cats still have a couple of feet firmly planted in the wild compared to dogs and relish exploring/hunting.

    • When a kitty goes from snuggling to turning at midnight that means she’s happy in her new home (it also means your life is turned upside down, but that’s about being a cat owner). Sometimes I’m reading in bed and have to use it as a shield as Misha flies back-and-forth over me. When the energy runs out she comes and rests her head on my shoulder.
