Re: OT - how are everyone's new babies doing?


You all are killing me. My cat is even looking at me like I'm insane- laughing my head off.

Somehow Jim, I had never imagined you wearing a Beanie.
Glad you took the baby home.

Wish I did, too. She was such an odd creature. We got her from a
county
shelter. When we toured the shelter, she was in a top-tier cage. The
attendant said she was about a year old and feral, but she was so
pretty--solid black with a white bow tie--that we wanted a closer
look.
When the attendant opened the cage to take her out, she leaped over
the
attendant and landed on my head. Ms Fatma said, "Well, I see your cat
has found you." So we took her home.

Jim,
This is such a funny vision!  You with your robe cinched up and
chasing a sideways cat.... wish you had a video of that?  That would
definitely win big bucks on Funnies Home Videos.

I love them at that age. When we first got Beans, we lived in a
condo, which had an up-tight policy about pets running loose in the
hallways. Beans intuitively understood this policy and set out to
challenge it at every opportunity. It reached the point where I had
to lock her in the bathroom just to retrieve the morning paper.

But when she did escape--which was often, much to my
consternation--she would race down the hall to the elevators and sit

there somewhat patiently for one of them to open and take her to
freedom. For my part, I would cinch up my robe, yell to Ms Fatma
that
I was chasing "that cat" [lest I got locked out], grab my water gun,

and trudge down the hall after Beans. When she would see me--with
the
water gun--she would race back to our apartment door, which Ms Fatma

was usually holding open.

And as she raced back, she ran as fast as she possibly could, so
fast, in fact, the her longer hind legs overtook her shorter front
legs, and by the time she got to our apartment door, she was ether
running sideways or backwards. Funniest thing I've ever seen.

Oh yes, my two assume that everything in the house is made of the
fuzzy
side of Velcro and they have the hooks. I've had kittens leap onto
my
back while I'm blow drying my hair, cleaning the litter box, tying
my
shoelaces, the list goes on. The other day I was standing next to
the
couch when one of them took off from the floor near the window -
hit
the
coffee table, bounced to the back of the couch, and splat onto my
chest.
She covered about 20 feet in half a second, and it was pure reflex
that
let me grab her when she hit so she didn't manage to puncture me
much.
I'll actually be a little sad when they grow up, they are too cute
now
even with claws and all.

And Zem, how is Percy adapting to his new 3 legged state?  My
kitten
Little
Bit hasn't learned "no hooks" yet.  I'll be glad when she does.  I
was
cleaning the litter box the other day and was bent over scooping.
She
decided she wanted my attention at that exact second so she jumped
up
and
planted both sets of front claws in my backside.  She took off
running
when
I yelped, so MAYBE we won't do that again.  Believe or not, I
managed to
not
drop the scoop.  Lord knows how.  I will be very happy when she
grows
up.
The kitten "thing" is very cute and amusing and all, but there's a
lot
to be
said for a cat that is more settled and calm.  I'm just not used to

that
level of activity.  Thought you cat people would get a kick out of
that
anecdote however.
