Is this weird?..Or is it just me????

So I have this neighbor that lives behind me. She is a fairly large woman..(not that there is anything wrong with that at all) and I see her outside sitting in a lawn chair nearly everyday..Which that is not what troubles me..She has some cats, maybe 2 or 3. The first weird thing is she has a chain link fence around a portion of her backyard..FOR THE CATS !!..Now this is weird to me..Maybe it is just me..But what really strikes my mind as being a tad abnormal is the fact she walks these cats...on leashes..She puts her cats on a leash and walks them over to the neighbor's woods..(same woods that the kids would play in till the lady who is growing weed back there threaten to call the cops on them)..
And this woman lets her cats defecate all over said lady,s rented woods..Now number one, how do you train a cat to walk on a leash??..Number 2, what's with the fence? Number 3, what cat not only walks on a leash and craps on command in the neighbor,s yard?? And number 4, what is wrong with a litter box??

Maybe it is just me..But they seem to breed some strange breeds up here in the northern section of the country..


Funny thing said by oldest spawn to hubby..

OS: " Oh no, I swallowed some of my mouthwash"
Hubby:" your fine, it is ok if you swallow a little bit"
OS: " well something in the back of my head is telling me you should call poison control"

I was on my treadmill when he came running out saying this..So I could not hear it to well..But I nearly fell of my treadmill after hubby relayed this message:)

Spawns had good first day of school..And I had a good first day with no fighting:)

Have a happy Friday...

Cats on a leash? That's weird to me...

Your oldest spawn cracks me up - where do they come up with these things?

we too have a neighbor who walks her cat. twice a day. the cat has a harness leash and the owner will stop to talk to someone passing. the cat with either A) sniff around a tree and wait, (which is rather dog-like) or b)go up to the other walkers dog and sniff at them. VERY strange....
she does a lot of yard work and when she is working she ties her cat to a tree in front of her house where the cat lounges around....

Im so glad I don't have neighbours but then again I would probably have better things to write about.

Glad kids had a good time at school. I can't wait until Tuesday here, that's when Mac goes. HOORAY FOR SCHOOL.

oh man, used to have a weird ass neighbor when i was a kid- with a million cats- never walked them or anything, basically he would just let them breed and left them to fend for themselves...yet they were like his own kids- i dunno...many times we would leave food out for them- the worst was the middle of the night when the ones in heat would hang out my bedroom window and cry ALL night! see, if it was now i'd know better to call someone- one of those save the animals people..lol

No, you're right, it's weird.

I had a neighbour who used to do the same thing. She also kept naming her cats the same name. One would die and the next would have the same name. Come to think of it, she went thru a lot of cats, all of them named "Minet"

Weird lady.

Well actually cat lovers do strange things. We walk our cats on leashes. We have six cats at the moment actually. Five indoor cats and one stray that we adopted that goes out. The five indoor cats have a special "cat house" for them with perches and everything. We also have little leashes for them so we can walk them outside to explore.

I guess you have to be a cat lover...lol!

Tee said...

Hilarious comment from your older kid! LOL.

The lady DOES sound a little weird. Maybe she knows something we don't... Maybe she's a cat whisperer. LOL.

Jamie Dawn said...

Cats on leashes seems mighty strange to me.
It must be fun to watch.

Peanutt said...

Hmmm, wonder why your neighbor wouldn't just invest in a dog????
I think every body has a weird neighbor...so if you look around and you have none then its you! LOL, I think your safe though with this crazy cat walking lady! I think (hope) I'm safe because I have Sammy!
Hope you have a great day!

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

whew..I had to work today..so i havent got to comment back 2 ya'll..

but it seems we are all in pretty much agreement that i have weird neighbors..lol...i am a cat lover..I have one. and the fact the cats are on leashes is weird to me, but what is weirder is the fact she walks them to the niehgbors to go potty..LOL..again..maybe its jsut me:)

my elderly neighbors used to walk their cat on a leash when they took their trash to the chute in the building. He didn't like it very much, but they didn't give him another option. It's very bizarre.

Why get a litter box when the little monsters will do the deed outside? I think that part is brilliant.
