What Day Is It Anyway – Thursday, February 3rd, 2022


Conversations I’ve had with the animals in this house in the last 24 hours.

To the cat: “I’m done with your tomfoolery!”

To male, neutered dog after I had an argument with Alex: “Don’t ever have kids.”

I may have upset him with that suggestion.

Do you talk to your pets?

Do you know what day it is?

There's a writer in here, clawing her way out.

  1. I talk to animals if they seem up for the conversation – sometimes, though – the animal in question just shows up, leans against my leg – or reaches up to touch their forehead to mine – or lick my hand, my feet or my face – and in that moment? All I can think of is, “thanks for reminding me….” or “thanks for being there” or…..”WHAT THE HECK you needy personage! I’ve got work to do! It’s not all about YOU ya know….fINE! Whaddya need?? water? Food? Still can’t figure out the door that was put in JUST for you to come and go as you please????” and I stand up, and they start herding, racing, dancing, etc., and they simply draw me in and then I say, later, “Sorry – I forgot it was time for recess – thanks for reminding me to play in my day” – – Somewhere in pet spirit world? There is a list of ‘potential homes’ and my name has next right to it, “She’s brain damaged, you have to remind her about playing, every damn day….”


  2. When I had a dog – every day, talked to her every single day.


  3. Buddy, Spot and I have regular conversations. lol


  4. Yep, I talk to all of it! Cats, Kali, and my computer! And I am glad to see WDIIA back as it helps me in these crazy days to know what I used to know every day.

  5. Annie and I have long talks. They are pretty much one sided verbally. But the emotional and physical languages are there all the time. I typically only know what day it is by prompts. Melanie’s Share Your World. Frank’s Truthful Tuesday. Your One Liner Wednesday. Maggie and my Throwback Thursday
    Di and Frank’s Fibbing Friday. Your SoCS in Saturday. Maybe I need more of a life. LOL

  6. Talking to pets is part of being a good pet parent and helps keep us sane. They understand our tone, body language, and any words related to feeding time.

  7. I laughed out loud over you telling your neutered dog not to have kids. Wish I had a nickle for ever time I had a conversation with my pets. I thinks its because they don’t talk back plus will love us unconditionally. Thanks for the laugh at ourselves – us other pet owners

  8. Linda unless I check my phone I have no idea what day it is because right now every day us the same. So far today Ruby and I have discussed the weather, argued about why Daddy was out so long wiping his car down.
    I have also spoken to the oven, dishwasher and freezer oh! Yes and two passing cats ! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

  9. Everyone is on a different schedule which makes it easy for Xenia to cadge extra breakfasts. Today she was caught and got a good talking to. Her reaction? she turned flicked her elegant cat’s tail at me and stalked off. Her point? RHIP – Rank Hath It’s Privileges – if you are a cat.


  10. I donโ€™t have any pets except for the occasional mouse which startles me. I hate the idea he comes and goes but this new apt Iโ€™m in is new construction so maybe it thinks it owns the place! I do know what day it is, dang it, pay the rent day ๐Ÿ˜ฉAnd I donโ€™t get paid till this coming Wednesday. Have a good one Linda. Itโ€™s when you stop talking to pets I will worry ๐Ÿ˜‚

  11. We always talked to Maggie and her predecessors, and today I have had puppy fix after puppy fix, quite happily chatting away as I stroked, fussed and smoothed. As for what day it is, it’s the reason I do my Today Is………… posts otherwise I’d never know for sure!
