I’m not kidding when I tell y’all that it has been a BANNER day. Molly CLIMBED INTO MY LAP, not just once but TWICE! (Then she walked around behind me and stared at my back, which is what she’s doing in the picture.) Both times, she sat there and let me pet her for at least five minutes, purring and purring. Her brothers have been doing that for ages, but I feared she never would. And THEN…(see next post)
Lizzy came down from the cat tree to bat at some toys! This is the first time she’s come down off the tree while I was in there. She even approached me, but skittered off when I reached toward her. This is awesome! She’s already proven that she loves to be petted when she’s laying on the cat tree platform. She’s a little love, is what she is.
Love & Hisses foster kittens undergo a very strict and strenuous training program during their stay at Crooked Acres. Jethro Tull has just about mastered the art of the I Am But A Poor Wee Kitteh face.
Continuing the strenuous Kitten Training, Jethro Tull and Thunderclap Newman learn Lap Sharing. I can’t quite give them an A+ for this effort – Jethro looks a little too I Am But A Poor Wee Kitteh here – but it’s a good try. They’ll figure it out before too long.
Kitten Training continues – it’s hard work, but these are essential skills the kittens need to acquire so that they can spend the next few weeks perfecting them. Hey, they knew it was going to be hard work when they signed up. If they wanted to do something easy, they shoulda joined the US Navy SEALS. Here’s Molly Hatchett working on her Air Kneading. After her rough Pretending To Be Feral start, it’s a pleasant surprise to see just how perfect her form is.
Kitten Training continues, and Kissing Practice has begun. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Jethro Tull, you better get that horrified look off your face if you want to pass! I mean, if it’s too harrrd for you, I understand the US Navy SEALs have room for you, ya big baby. Kitten Training ain’t for wimps.
