It turns out Jetta becomes equally perturbed if I sing to her. Not that I can blame her, as I don't sing especially well, but it's the same reaction she gives me when I'm proofreading a script out loud. She paces back and forth on the desk around my keyboard, then plants herself next to me, looks at me intently and gives me a sharp, questioning meow -- one of those full head meows where her ears snap flat back on her head and then pop back up. This only encourages me to do it even more.
And if I dance a bit while I'm singing or sing directly TO her...that really worries her. LOL!
She continues to eat the Z/D canned food. I consider it a miracle that she hasn't lost interest in it. I bought a less expensive, but still pricey dry food that's a duck and pea combination. Jetta refused to eat it for a while and complained vociferously about it when I put it in her bowl. So I picked up an expensive, high quality, no-grain food with salmon and mixed the two. Both Jetta and Zoe seem far happier about this blend.

Jetta is totally cracking me up. She's deeply perturbed by something I'm doing. I've been writing a monthly comic book called Amethyst for DC Comics. I send in a script, the artist does the pencils, it gets colored and a letterer adds the balloons and captions. At the lettering stage, the editor sends me a pdf so that I can do a final proofing pass on the dialog.
I find it helps me to catch missing words or other problems if I read dialog out loud, so that's what I was doing. Jetta perched herself next to the keyboard as closely as she could get, stared at me intently and every time I started reading dialog again, she would meow at me as if to say, "What are you doing?!" She apparently thinks I've lost my mind.
On an unrelated note...I've just discovered that some unknown source is adding links to my blog posts! I have no idea how this is happening, but I intend to find out. I recommend that anyone reading this blog be careful to avoid clicking on these false links that I clearly didn't intend to be there. How infuriating.
UPDATE: It looks like I fixed the problem. It was a piece of advertisting malware known as "text-enhance" that had snuck itself in as an add-on to my browser. A plague on them.
