I am thinking hard which of the mom's silly things I should tell you about. When she writes and puts the pen down, in the flash of an eye, the pen is lost! She can't find it, she hasn't moved, but where did it go? Ok, this happens enough to be common place.
A couple months ago she noticed kitties were wishing Julie and Carl a Happy Gotcha day, and the mom was, "Huh? What's this?" Totally clueless! Kitties from around the world remembered, but not her. Ok, we all know she doesn't remember like she used to.
But maybe the funniest happened earlier this year. The furnace conked out and an introoder came to fix it. Being smart kitties, we scattered. After he left, kitties started showing up, one by one. All except for me. Hours later, she started searching but I didn't answer. She walked right past me several times. I didn't let on. Why ruin a good hiding place?
Finally, even though she was fairly sure she had been careful and I was inside the house, she went outside to call me. With all the neighbors out, she starting calling, "Mew, mew, Oui Oui!" (There's no "Here kitty, kitty" in our house!)
Naturally, most of the neighbors were outside, not at a restaurant or movie enjoying themselves like they should have been. Having Mew Mew Oui Oui'd her way around in every direction so as to convince as many people as possible how nuts she is, she went back inside. If they thought she might be a crazy cat lady, here was proof! Maybe a few thought she is a psychotic, not crazy, cat lady.
It made for a good laugh later and when we kitties had laughed ourselves out, I showed up, like nothing had happened.
