|Elizabeth in a quieter moment|
Just kidding, of course. But seriously, my cute little Siamese is starting to wear out her welcome. She’s chatty, as Siamese are, but to a degree I’ve never experienced before. And her habit is to crank up the volume about 30 minutes after I go to sleep each night. This is not conducive to the recovery sleep I need in the midst of marathon training!
I wish Elizabeth (my daughter named her) could be like her “brother” Henry. He’s just a cool dude, quiet and only seeking out attention during daylight. Or she could emulate my Whippet, Connor. He couldn’t be an easier animal and his only goal in life is to stay on his owner’s good side. Noise, barking? Never with this guy–nary a peep comes out of his mouth.
In spite of all Elizabeth’s dramatics, though, I do love her bigger-than-life personality. In case the SPCA is reading, I am NOT serious about wanting to give her up. But if she keeps it up, she may find herself spending the night in the mudroom, ’cause I AM serious about my sleep!
