More Cat Stuff




I have decided it is very difficult to photograph small kittens. They rarely look at you when you want them to and using the flash on black fur gives a harsh contrast which does not sufficiently show her fluffiness! Here she is making a nuisance of herself. The BA took this one of her asleep on my lap. She had worn herself out with climbing up our legs and falling off the back of armchairs. She is currently in Himself's arms but he is refusing to be photographed! Actually I don't know who is worse, him or the cat! I can't count the number of pictures I have of that man sticking his tongue out at me.

But back to kittens. I think she has grown already. She has well and truly ticked off our big cat who is mostly sitting in the hallway refusing to come into the kitchen and hissing. A lot. Still, he's generally a miserable bugger anyway. His one sole claim to fame as a kitten is having 'wrapped up the house' in wool one day when we were out. We walked in to a tangle of wool which went around all the tables and chairs and in and out of three rooms. It was quite spectacular. Not sure why I didn't take a photo. Still, he hasn't done much worth speaking of since then although he seems to have taken a shine to no 2 Son. Perhaps he senses a kindred disgruntled spirit. It is similarly difficult to get a pleasant word out of either of them.

Get back to work woman! You have still to mark some woeful Y9 percentage tests.
My life is so full of excitement.

That little ball of fluff makes me want a kitty too! Mine used to be that size...and now he's nearly 20 lbs!

I just can not believe how adorable that kitty is! And how very small...it's been so long since ours were that tiny! I refuse to feel that pang for a new kitty, as we have SO many already, so thanks for sharing yours! I completely sympathize with the having difficulty photographing an active cat. Norton, our cutest cat, is just so busy, it's hard to see him as he really is.

Your big cat IS mean. She brutally and unprovoked attacked me the other day. Godspeed with this kitten. Baby animals of any species (including humans) are cute but nightmarish...
