Laughing About Nothing ... Cats!

There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats. ~Albert Schwitzer
A few weeks ago, while taking Kyle to his piano lessons I realized there must be something about us together in a car, alone, with our imaginations that makes these stories. Our minds go out of control. I mean sometimes really silly out of control. This time the topic was cats. What got us on the subject of cats? I have no idea, probably Kyle asking how Storm was doing. Regardless, the stage was set and we were armed with humor, wit, and imagination. At this point, no one can tell where the conversation was going to turn, especially us, but we always know it's going somewhere.
We started talking about Storm and the next thing you know Storm was visiting my sister's cat Toshi (I call him Lester) in the Washington DC Metro Area. Keep in mind this is a completely fictitious story that we started to make up. Why? No clue, just to simply humor ourselves I guess. As the story started to take shape, I said imagine that conversation, “Storm would say meow, like a kitten and Lester would respond back with a loud ear piercing MEOW!" We both started laughing.
You see, Lester has this really loud and annoying meow that doesn't end. I can understand the cat meowing when I'm visiting Nicole, being in his domain and all, but he does it while I'm on the phone with my sister. Let's not forget when I'm talking to Nicole on Skype and I swear I hear the cat when I email and text message my sister. One time when I was staying at Nicole's, the cat sat outside my closed door to the spare bedroom and meowed all night. Lester just sat in the hallway and projected his really loud and drawn out meow towards me. I've had cats all my life and I've never experienced anything like Lester before. Finally, I told Nicole to take the cat in her bedroom, which she did only to find out it didn't help. The cat kept meowing just as loud, if not louder from Nicole's room. It sounded like Lester was meowing directly into an intercom, which hung over my head. Again, I can understand this, because I was occupying his space, but he does it all the time! Whether you're in the living-room, bathroom or kitchen, there is no escaping Lester's alarm system. Due to this annoying and slightly entertaining behavior, he has been the subject of many conversations in our household, over the years. Can't imagine why? (sarcasm)
There's such a difference between Lester and Storm. Mine meows only when she wants something. Lester, lives to meow. I swear that cat has meow "CATivated" paws, he meows with every step. Either that or he has meow turrets. (No disrespect to those suffering with turrets.)
