Crazy Critters

Postby Westi » Thu Oct 27, 2016 6:49 pm

Now I'm used to the Spring Fever phenomenon, but we seem to have Autumn Antics as well!

The dogs gone mad, emptied the linen cupboard when door left open a bit, and has taken to shredding magazines & newspaper. Cats running around like loons chasing each other round the house & play fighting & making one hell of a racket. Normally they are in just lounging around this time of the year, begging you to put the heating on!

Are they preparing for a cold winter, a mild winter, are they like us, just seasonally challenged? Is this just a Westi issue or are your critters acting strange as well? It is a bit of a southern issue though my friends are reporting similar erratic behaviour.

Not happening in our house. Quite the opposite in fact. No animals but the raoidly darkening nights are a trigger for my whole body to start winding down and going into hibernation mode. Come the changing of the clocks at the weekend and I could happily disappear inder the duvet and not emerge until the beginning of March!

I've noticed that my clothes seem to shrink during the winter - the waistbands in particular. It seems to be a seasonal phenomenon. It seems to coincide with both of the cats shedding hair non stop and my hens ceasing to lay. I blame the jet stream.

My clothes have been slowly shrinking for many years.
I blame DW and her washing machine. DW's reply is unprintable.
