Nicholas, meanwhile, longs to spend a whole night in Alisoun's arms rather than just the few moments they get together during John's absences. With Alisoun, he hatches a scheme that will enable him to do this. He tells John that he has foreseen a terrible event in a vision from God. The next Monday, God is going to send a massive flood twice as great as the one he sent in Noah's time. He says that God told him they could save themselves by hanging three large tubs, each loaded with provisions and an ax, from the ceiling of the barn.
Once the waters rose, they would cut the ropes, hack through the roof, and float until the waters subsides. John believes him and on Monday night, they ascend by ladder into the hanging tubs. As soon as John is asleep, Nicholas and Alisoun climb down, run back to the house, and sleep together in John's bed. That same night, Absolon comes and begs Alisoun to kiss him.
At first she refuses him, but Absolon persists, so she offers him one quick kiss. Instead of presenting her lips to Absolon's, though, she sticks her backside out the bedroom's "shot-window" privy vent , and Absolon kisses her "ers" arse in the dark. Angry at being fooled, Absolon gets a red-hot coulter from the smith with which he intends to burn Alisoun.
He returns with it to the window and knocks again, promising Alisoun a gold ring in exchange for a kiss. This time, Nicholas, having gotten up to relieve himself anyway, sticks his buttocks out to get in on the joke and farts thunderously in Absolon's face.
Absolon thrusts the coulter "amidst the ers" of Nicholas who cries out for "Water! The screams wake John, who thinks the flood is upon them and cuts the rope attaching his tub to the ceiling. Have you seen his body posture when he makes that noise? Is he hacking like he's going to cough up a hairball, or acting like he does with a normal meow? Sometimes old cats get a bit of dementia and "talk" to themselves.
If he's hacking it could be asthma or something. He's usually just sitting upright like a normal cat. He hasn't had a hairball in the 17 years I've had him and don't think that would be it since he can't do much grooming by himself. I'll look into the Wureva.
Do you know how it is for kitties with kidney problems? He went through renal failure a few years ago and my vet is always very careful about things that will affect his kidneys. He's overweight as a result of several issues, as well. Lactulose is some serious stuff. Retrieved July 28, Retrieved November 7, NBC News.

And when a female cat is interested, it would respond with similar "owww owww" but with somewhat different inflections. It's a kind of cat talk. Sometimes I make the same "owww owww" sound to talk to my cats, too. Not sure if I sounded intelligible to them. Lilly Registered. Posts: 2 Threads: 0 Joined: Reputation: 0. My 18 year old female cat has recently started making the baby cry and I'm not sure what to make of it.
She isn't crying in pain and she isn't being disturbed by another cat. She makes it when she is preparing either to lay on my bed pillow or on her quilt in the closet. Perhaps she is aware of scent that bothers or or maybe she is calling for me.
When I stop what I am doing to try to determine what is bothering her, I find her staring at the pillow or at her quilt. None of the other cats ever goes either place, to the best of my knowledge and I live alone. Go figure. Posts: 18 Threads: 3 Joined: Reputation: 0. My kitten tends to make the baby cry's when she needs something.
For instance, when she wants more food or water she makes that sound or if she gets locked in a room and wants to get out she makes that sound. She is also still a kitten so I hear more of a crying from her then I have other cats. If they're not peeing at all there could be kidney failure.
