Silly Kitty!So the kitten spent most of yesterday afternoon and evening hiding in our boxspring or under the bed. He didn't want us to even look at him - poor, scared, little guy! Tai told me I was underestimating him - that as soon as the lights went out, he'd be up exploring. I didn't believe him. Ha!
Literally, less than a minute after I turned off my light and laid down to go to sleep, that little bugger jumped on the bed and started walking all over us. He only weighs probably 3 pounds, so it felt more like butterfly kisses than footfalls. He spent most of the night wandering over the bed, though I did hear him use the litter box and eat a little. I can't swear it, but I think he's one of those cats that picks up each piece of food with his paw and puts it in his mouth! That's certainly what it sounded like, anyway. Regardless, I was up most of the night, because the collar we put on him has a bell on it. What was I thinking when I bought it?! Oh, yeah...that I'd like to be able to find him when he was hiding!
He warmed up further today. He let me pick him up a couple of different times, and we had some good snuggle time. With purring. He has a little motor, I swear! He was sitting across my shoulders while I was on the couch using the laptop. He loves to follow the curser movements with his eyes. Mucho Cute-o. I was scrolling through a page of pet names, and he found the words scrolling by to be fascinating. He jumped onto the laptop and put his nose right on the name Jinx. I like it. I think he made a good choice. But it's Tai's decision, so I doubt it'll stick. Even if the cat DID pick it himself!
