Hobbes is a really bad kitten... I take back everything I said about him being perfect. He is truly the naughtiest kitten I have ever had. He eats everything left out (and I mean everything - I caught him eating a biscuit yesterday), he swings from my curtains, he takes the cords from the blinds and runs around with them, he knocks things off my desk, he steps on my keyboard... I could go on. And yet - I can never be mad at him when he looks at me with those sweet brown eyes.


Yesterday though he and Mike both had a traumatic experience. Mike was in the shower when I heard a scream and a meow come from the bathroom. I ran in to find Hobbes soaking wet and crying on the floor. I guess he saw Mike's feet in the shower and leaped in to attack them, only to be shocked when he realized there was water falling on him. I hope Hobbes learned a lesson about attacking things without considering the consequences of his actions. I gave him lots of love and some treats... and I think it wasn't too scarred.



I am currently working on the rose cat bed from a second treasury of magical knitting. It is going to be a truly massive beast before I felt it, but it's all good as I have a ton of lopi in my stash anyway. Let me just say this though - Cat Bordhi, you amaze me. I can't believe how amazing this pattern is and how freakin cool mobius are!!

I laughed out loud at the shower incident. For another funny thing you can try putting him in front of a mirror. One of your kittens played "kitty in the mirror" for a month before figuring out that it was her reflection. She would look in the mirror, meow, then rush behind the mirror to see if she could find the other cat, and then repeat. This was true even though she had a playmate her own age. It is one of our favorite stories about her.

Aww that is too cute! Hobbes does like the mirror in our bedroom, he will wiggle at it and then run toward it, but stop just short of leaping on it. He also likes to leap at my computer screen and the TV.

Awww! Poor Hobbes (And poor Mike!) He'll settle down a bit, once he's out of the kitten stage. I hope, anyway!

AW!! Your Hobbes sounds adorable! Makes me miss my Henry! Can't wait to watch Hobbes grow.

How is Hobbes doing now? I have told several friends about the shower incident and they have all laughed at it. And about the computer screen - has he tried catching the cursor? It is super cute but somewhat annoying when papers are due (but then again, a stress reliever...)
