I'm pretty sure that cats can see ghosts.

That's a possibility I hadn't considered.  I've never seen mice or rats in the house, and it's been warmer lately, but some nights have been getting quite cold up until recently.

I don't think this is it, but it's at least conceivable.  I'm starting to think it's because he likes to drink out of the toilet and is upset he can't get to it at night, but I don't know why he'd start doing that recently either.  He's got a water bowl he can get to that the other cats are perfectly happy with and he drinks out of it, so... I don't know.

About water -- many cats dislike drinking from the same place that they eat (something something instincts). My cat refused to drink when her water was next to her food bowl. I had to move it across the room for her to drink from it on a regular basis.

My friend's cats have a great big bowl of water (in a different room from the food bowls) that gets switched out multiple times throughout the day, and they make a point of digging around it so they can get to the fresher water at the bottom...

Still gotta keep the bathroom door closed to keep them from drinking out of the toilet.

I was wondering if he disliked the water bowl because it was "stagnant", so I got one of those circulating waterfall water bowls for them, and he does seem to like it better.  He still meowed in the bathroom at a ghost a couple of times yesterday, but less than the day before.  Surprisingly, he didn't meow at the bedroom door at all last night, so that's a relief.

I don't think it was the water bowl though, and I think he's just calming down some.  Based on some other behavior, like waking up and immediately turning around to look for me, I think he just had a weird bout of separation anxiety and thinks I'm going to disappear if he can't see me.  Maybe that's getting better.  I did leave the house for Thanksgiving, but that's not really that unusual since I'm also gone on most weekends.  I don't really see why that would trigger it.

I'm so bored, I just want to sleep so that I can end today and get tomorrow started. No such luck though, I can't sleep because a) wide awake, not even a little relaxed, b) can't stop thinking about things that don't matter.

Some might say this was an oblique pun.

Man, that comic kind of spelled out how I feel about the having of teeth. It beats the alternative, but they suck at doing what they're there for.

Been noticing lately that my physical strength has declined a lot over the past two years since my depression started to dive a lot. Also been having a chronic pain in my shoulder that sometimes runs down to my elbow or all the way to the bottom two fingers on my right hand. Spikes with certain movements. It's been there to some extent since I worked at Amazon a couple years back, but the past month or two it's been getting pretty bad.

Need to start going to the gym and/or pool once or twice a week I think. Of course, thinking about it is easy, doubt I'll bring myself to do anything on a regular basis.
