Sheila drives me crazy and makes me laugh because she is SUCH a little wild thing. I eat at my desk, and she’s always all up in my face, “Whatcha got, huh, can I have some, well, I’ll just TAKE some, you don’t mind do you, I knew you wouldn’t NOM NOM NOM.” I spray the compressed air at her, and she goes flat and her ears go out to either side, but the instant I put the air down she’s all back up in my face again. Yesterday she peered around the can of compressed air at my plate of food, and I almost choked on my lunch because she was so cute. Such a little character, she is.
“Uhmmmm. Hanging off the carrier. Why? What are YOU doing?”
I can’t get over what a gorgeous little guy Lieu is.
Lieu, getting an eyeful of Sheila.
Bolitar (who we are calling “Buster” and sometimes “Buster Brown” constantly these days)
Corbett (AKA “Bad Boy”, even though he really isn’t)

2008: No entry.
2007: No entry.
2006: No entry.
2005: “What the – ?” I said to Miz Poo, who was looking more than a little freaked out.
You alwyas show such cute pictures of your kitties, but I have you sussed out now! You know what? YOU’RE A BIG CHEAT!
Show us a picture of a kittie that ISN’T cute! Show us an UGLY kittie! See? you can’t can you? 🙂
Such cuties – and I am glad to know I am not the only one to use the canned air. Though we aren’t this time (mainly because we didn’t have any) we have in the past – usually just the sound will stop them! They are such cuties though, so even when they are bad it is tough to stop them!
Ugh it’s so hard to resist letting them dine with you! One of my boys has a thing for bagels and cream cheese big time. The one time he stole lox I was reminded of your Hydrox and the chicken story. His face just lit up! I had some cherries and he started picking them up by the stem in his mouth. So cute and so annoying! 🙂
Freya & Teego: That’s a trick question. There’s no such thing as an ugly cat! 😀
Amy: I like using the canned air because it doesn’t get stuff wet like a spray bottle of water does. But Sheila isn’t much deterred by the air. I might have to just suck it up and deal with the water. She’s persistent!
Susan: A friend gave me a bag of cucumbers this morning. I put the bag on the floor when I got home, and ten seconds later Bolitar was trotting through the kitchen with a cucumber in his mouth. And it was a big one! 🙂 We also have a scattering of green beans through the house. I snap the ends off in the evenings while we watch TV, and every one of the Bookworms steals them out of my bucket to play with.
I tried using a spray bottle of water when my current oldest cat was a kitten, and bugging my elderly cat. It did stop him from molesting the other cat – but just because he likes to drink the water. He stands there with his mouth open while I squirt him on his tongue.
Thirteen years later he still likes getting squirted on the head and body with water.
Sheila, it was clear from the start that you have spunk, but mocking the air can suggests you’ve got more than a kitten’s normal share …
