Hello, cats. This is going to be a quick post because I don’t want that woman to discover what I’m typing about. Cats, I need your help and prayers over here. My Mom is going through caffeine withdrawal!
This started when she went to someone called The Doctor, which I guess is the human equivalent of a vet. The Doctor advised Mom to cut down on her coffee. So, she is trying to do that. However, she is driving me and everyone around her crazy while she is doing that.
First, she is very crabby. She yelled at me this morning for playing! OK, I have to admit that while she was trying to sleep, I was tossing my (fake) mouse right by her head, which woke her up. Still, I don’t think I deserved to have her yell, “Hey! I am trying to sleep here. If you throw that mouse one more time, it’s flying off of this bed and so are you!” Thankfully, she didn’t follow through on that threat since she fell back asleep. I still think that was mean, though.
Second, she almost jumped the coffeepot this morning so she could get her reduced caffeine fix. After drinking a smaller amount of coffee than she usually does, she kept saying things like, “I don’t care what that doctor says. I want more coffee—now!” and, “If this is supposed to make me calmer, why am I ready to kill someone?” I stayed away from her when she said that!
Third, she is telling all of her friends how much better she feels with less caffeine in her system. Well, I’m here to tell you that that’s a lie. She is more of a frenzied wreck now than she was when she drank her normal amount of coffee. And—
Oh no, here she comes! I’ve got to go cats. Please pray for me. Also, if you have any suggestions about how to handle a human who is going through caffeine withdrawal, please post. I really need your help. Thanks!
