my first vlog! featuring oliver the cat

so while i was driving home last week, listening to the peaceful symphony beautiful music noise created by my windshield wipers mixing with the forlorn wailing from the back seat, i decided you all needed to share my pain. keep in mind that the camera was right next to my face during this, meaning pretty darn far away from oliver, so basically multiply his personal volume times about 4 or 5 or 12635126 or something and you'll have a more accurate sense of my trip home.

good times, you guys. also pretend i don't sound like a 9 year old loser. i wish i could say i don't normally sound like that, but.. well.. i'm not a very good liar.

  1. That is my vision of what Hell must be like. Either that or driving across Ireland with my dad and his GPS at full volume (he's a little deef). No matter what a cat sitter charged, it would have been worth every penny.

  2. Wow that's...special. Good thing the cat is so darn cute, although I might not have been able to resist throwing him out the window anyway.

  3. OMG. I know it must have been miserable but I cannot stop laughing at the constant mewling. Poor cat! And poor you!

    Also, did you really publish this post last night? Because if so, why hasn't it shown up in my Google Reader yet?

  4. "MEOW. MEOW. MEOW.MEOW." It's like he knows it irritates you and is doing it on purpose.

    Also can I borrow him to put him in one of my co-workers cars so he can irritate the living crap of said co-worker? Yes? Thank you.

  5. I drove to Arlington on Turkey Day w. my fuzzbutt and the entire way there it was MEOW. MEOW. MEOOOOOW. He got louder if I went over 40mph, just like driving w. my mom. Also, he is not a fan of the way I make turns.

  6. NO WAY!!! I thought you might be exaggerating just a little wee bit... I mean, what cat does that for three hours straight?! Yours does. I can't believe it. I AM SO SORRY YOU HAD TO PUT UP WITH THAT! Are you sure he's worth it?

    I think it might be easier having a crying kid in the car. You know at least at some point they will tucker out and fall asleep.

  7. Yup - that is definitely an unhappy kitty for you. You'd think he'd give up at some point.

  8. I am not a violent person, but I might have thrown something at your cat if I had to be in a car with that sound for hours.

    I guess that's why a friend, whose baby hates the car and cries every time, just turns up the radio really loud to drown out the tears.

  9. Mine do the exact same thing. Except one of them is really high pitched and the other one sounds like a fog horn. It's rather symphonic, actually. I especially love it when one of them tries to get under my feet while driving.

    Also? My cats were in the room when I played this and they FREAKED the F**K out. So funny!

MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! That's like all I can hear. MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW!

  11. LOL in commiseration!
    The last 12 hours of our move out here sounded like that, off and on (eventually, Cleopatra bored of her own voice, I think).

  12. OMG it is so surprising to hear your voice!

    It would be tempting to drown out Oliver with some Loud Music.

    My word verification is vowly. More like MEOWLY AMIRITE!??

  13. Ha ha! But so sorry for you. Also, you surprisingly sound nothing like my own voice in my head when I read blogs, which apparently is what I expect ALL bloggers to sound like. Don't worry about sounding like a 9-year-old, you are not alone. I sound like a 12-year-old. And my guess based on your voice would have been 17. ;)

  14. I'm sorry...I just. can't. stop. laughing...

    Bwaahhhhhaaaaaaaahhhh

    *ahem*

  15. I love it. Your voice and the cat are amazing.

  16. Ugh your video wouldn't play at work.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You sound totally cute--the cat however needs a muzzle. Time for some good music to drown it all out.

    Next time we could hear you singing to the music ;).

  18. I sounds like a 9 year old loser too!!! In the videos I posted Wednesday my voice drove me nuts. Twinsies!

    ReplyDelete
  19. you do NOT sound like a loser! i give you serious props for putting up with the kitties meowing. you are a stronger woman than i.

  20. LOL. Poor Oliver! We played the video for Data and he didn't react. ;)

  21. If anything, one has to admire your cats' determination to make his unhappiness known in the face of all evidence indicating that the situation won't change.

    Also, your voice sounds like a very nice 9 year old boy. Wait, what?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh voices. I just love them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is hilarious. And awful. I'm sorry. Also, your voice is lovely! Not a nine-year-old loser at all.
