STITTING: You can’t do it and your cats can’t stop bragging about it.

Conversation with Victor:

me: I think I have a problem.

Victor: Technically you have lots of them.  Which one specifically are you speaking of?

me: Look at Hunter S. Thomcat.

Victor: Yeah.  He’s being a cat.  What a bastard.

me: No.  I mean, he looks as if he’s standing on the stairs at full attention, but if you look behind him you’ll notice he’s actually just sitting.  He’s pretending to stand, but really his ass is totally asleep.  Also, I suspect that he’s not even awake and is just too lazy to close his eyes.

Victor: …And this is a problem because?

me: I think I’m jealous.  I’m jealous of the cat.

Victor: Ah.  Yes.  That is a problem.

  2. I would say that being jealous of the cats is a fairly common “problem”. I know no other creature that can take solace and comfort in a laundry basket. Plus, the fact that they can bathe anywhere is completely unfair! Why can’t I break out a loofah with some hand sanitizer (aka my version of human cat-tongue) and start scrubbing down in public? Because I am not a feline. That’s why. AND it is NOT fucking fair.

    Carry on.

  14. My cat stits all the time and I will be the first to admit I don’t get it. It doesn’t look comfortable at all. She sits on the arm of the sofa, which is perfectly long enough to hold her, but her front legs are standing on the sofa cushion.

    But as with most things I don’t understand about my cat, muttering a brief “whatever,” and walking away usually is sufficient for me.

  15. You will be interested to know that I just watched the first episode of Doctor Who… And I can already feel my universe shifting.

    This has nothing to do with your post, but I sorta feel the need to share it with somebody who will actually get why it’s such a big fucking deal, and it says a lot about my life that the nearest person who qualifies is a woman on the other side of the atlantic who I’m never likely to meet IRL.

    Last wednesday, I told my boss that I needed some time off work to get all my mental ducks in a row, or I was likely do end up doing something I regretted.

    I saw my doc on Friday, who signed me out of work for two weeks, and gave me a presciption for celexa and a referral to a counselling service. I’m gonna phone them today. Wish me luck.

    whatimeant2say recently posted Forget the Milk. It Does a Number on My Sensitive Stomach..

  72. the problem us baldy humans have is that our legs are longer than our arms. that makes stitting comfortably nearly impossible. lazy dogs have been known to stit as well. our old rottweiler, while not lazy, was a 98-pound baby. we had a split level ranch and the stairs were right across from the front door, which only had a smallish window at face-level. so she would stit on the stairs and watch out the window.

    of course, there was a HUGE ASS bay window like four feet to the right. so she could have laid down on the landing and been even more lazy while looking out the window.

    adorable, loving, and cute, but not always the smartest. but i did teach her to eat corn off the cob (i would turn it for her, since she did not have thumbs).

    did any of that make sense? i’m full of toxic drugs for RA, so i’m not sure.

Seriously…. why is it so hard to find people willing to tackle your health issues with you instead of leaving you to dangle over a pit of boiling oil to see how long it takes you to MacGyver your way out of it? If you don’t have a cat yet maybe get one?

    Cats are awesome. There is one in our herd that just will not tolerate lonesomeness… his or mine. He bends his body in some weird ass ways to make sure that he can touch you from where ever he is laying when you plop down near him. The second he makes contact he starts purring like a race boat. (think Miami Vice) If it’s really bad he will curl himself up into a ball under your chin but only after he has made eye contact for long enough to judge my receptivity. A cat with some boundaries! You don’t get that with dogs.

I am a Taylor fan but I’ve got to admit that hearing someone dramatically speak out the lyrics–her facial expressions really sell the concept–made me laugh out loud. …And I’m out of the loop; what is the first best song about Stonehenge?

  105. I would totally read Victor’s memoir if he were ever to write one. It’d be interesting to read his perspective on what it’s like seeing you go through so much not be able to fix everything for you. I’m afraid to ask my own husband how he handles it when my depression gets worse.

  110. I listened to the Stonehenge song yesterday before I even read this, and my reaction was to squee a little simply because in the last year I was able to go there, so I was all, I was there, I saw that, I was on that road. Something I never thought I would be able to say, ever, in my life. Simply put, was in an abusive relationship for 11 years, FINALLY got myself out of it, less than two months after that started talking to a guy from England online, next thing I know he came out to visit, we fell in love, his parents bought me and the kids tickets and passports so we could go visit, we went out there, saw Dover castle, saw Stonehenge, went to London, pretty much LIVED in Canterbury, and got proposed to. Went home with with my englishman, though he left again in July, and am now counting down until he gets back down here and we can get married. Already have my dress and everything. And it hasn’t yet been a year and a half since I ditched mr abusive. Sorry about that, just excited.

  111. Going down the stairs is exhausting, I’m with your cat.

  112. oh yeah, one more thing I forgot. To be a cat, and get paid. That would be perfect. You don’t pay Hunter do you?

  113. Your link to the Stonehenge song completely made my day. And “henge” has been added to my vocabulary!

  114. Though I have recently traded the last name Stitt for something better (and by better, I mean apparently more baffling and difficult to spell), I’m not sure I want ‘stitting’ to become a thing. I have younger siblings to think of.

  115. Jenny, you and your cats and Victor make my day. I also have an awesome artistic personality that hovers around depression, that son of a bitch that arrives without an invitation. Thank you for keeping it real.

  116. I’m actually jealous of your carpet. Seriously…I need to upgrade mine to something like that. :-)

  117. I disagree. I can totally do the *human* equivalent of that. You find something – say a railing – that comes up to exactly the bottom of your bum. You rest your weight on it, but it still appears as though you are standing normally. Boom. Human stitting. And I did it with only 2 legs. Take that, cat!

  118. I feel the need to point out that not only did Fangirlish spell your name wrong, they also got the title of your book wrong. ;)

  119. My dog does the same thing on the stairs. Although he never seems asleep, just confused.

  120. I’m just drive-by posting to say “Spinal Tap” to the confused by music people.
