First, a couple of videos to start your week off right.
In the first one, Thistle was impatient at snack time and wouldn’t wait calmly on the floor like her sisters. She’s the only kitten I’ve ever seen pull off that particular move! (And the look on her face when she realized there was no snack in the bowls yet cracks me UP).
(PS: When I played the video just now at YouTube, Purslane was laying sound asleep on a bed on my desk. The instant she heard me say “Come on, girls!”, she FLEW off the bed and ran upstairs for snack time. I wish I’d gotten THAT on video!)
In the second, the visual is nothing special (though there’s some cute faces toward the end), but on Saturday I was laying on the couch with the intention of taking a nap, and before I knew it, I was covered in kittens. Polly and Joe were as close to my face as they could get, and they were purring SO hard that I turned my iPod Touch around and got it on video. Crank your sound up to get the full experience!
I meant to mention this last week and completely forgot. The awesome Stephen (husband of the awesome Rachael) made the howling Pickles (from this video a couple of weeks ago) into an MP3! I’ve set it as my ringtone (and also perhaps harassed the kittens with it – it certainly gets their attention). If anyone’s interested in having it, you can download it from here (right-click on that link and save it, is how I would do it).
If that doesn’t work for you, feel free to email me (mizrobyn (at) gmail (dot) com), and I’ll send it along.
Dandelion, keeping an eye on something. (Ugh, dirty floor. I believe that was the morning all the kittens ran around in a tub still wet from Fred’s shower, and then left footprints all over the place. I mopped it after that! I swear!)
Dandelion, in the living room. That plastic table in front of her is the TV tray Fred used to put his laptop on to write (I took it back out to the garage for storage yesterday). He decided to move his laptop upstairs, and so the TV tray was sitting there, ripe for being jumped on by little kittens. Dandelion accepted the challenge.
