Where's the Cat?

At 3:30 this morning I woke up from a sound sleep realizing I hadn't seen the cat in...OMG a long time!

I rushed out to the kitchen. Let me think...God did we put the cat outside and it didn't come back? How many days ago was THAT?

I don't even remember the last time we FED the cat, or bought cat food, for that matter!

I went to wake up Dean. "Honey. Honey have you seen the cat?" But he wouldn't wake up.

I came back to the kitchen. OMG I'm a terrible cat parent. I can't even think what the cat's name is at the moment! What the hell is the cat's name? Think think think!

This went on for a good 10 minutes before I was awake enough to realize: We don't HAVE a cat!!!!! We haven't had a cat in 10 years!!!!!

hahaha!! Oh, that must've been such an AWFUL feeling!! I remember when Sammi was a newborn, I'd wake in the middle of the night to nurse her, then put her back in her bassinet and go back to sleep, but half the time, I'd wake with a start, terrified, wondering where the baby had gone, and convinced I'd fallen asleep while nursing her and had dropped her somewhere. Soooo much relief to see her snoozing in her own little bed. LOL
