But alas, time flies and kittens grow up way too fast...
While Ginny still despises me (yet she's first in line for breakfast and meows when I ask "who wants 'num-nums'"), Toby has become my little buddy. She's wild as any kitten, but she's also got a very calm side where she just likes to hang out. Whether it's sitting on my desk to watch me work or snuggling up next to me on the bed while I watch TV, she'll patiently sit or nap.
Yesterday morning I discovered that she really is a kitten after my own heart. As most of you know, I love my Honey Nut Cheerios (dry). Rarely a day goes by where I don't munch on a cup of them. So as I sat and watched 90210 reruns on Soapnet (shut up) and read BusinessWeek, Toby hopped up on the counter...
...and tried to stick her face in my cup of cereal. So I pulled out a few pieces and set them down. Sure enough, she picked one up...
...tried it, and actually liked it!
She's just an amazing little cat and I'm glad we have her.
Molly and Teddy are a pair of little wild monsters. It's like the Indy 500 in our house about 5 times a day. And at first Mia thought the kittens were annoying; yelling at them when they tried to jump on her or attack her bushy tail. But she's come around and will play with them every now and then:
And I think poor KC will be nursing those two forever. Even though they are over 4 months old and practically the same size as her, they insist on getting their milkshake fix at least once a day:
When Teddy and Molly aren't tearing through the house, knocking over lamps and jumping into their water dishes, they take the most adorable naps:
So there you go. It's crazy as usual around here and I swear, I feel like scooping litter has become a full time job. But our house is clean and guests still can't tell we have so many cats. (I'm obsessed with debunking the Crazy Cat Lady stereotype. Plus, who wants to smell dirty boxes anyway?? I know some people with only one cat and their homes smell disgusting, so it all comes down to effort.)
