Kitty Quirks

Irish and Maddux are getting along better. They still chase each other like mad, but Irish hisses at Maddux much less now. It's really funny how Maddux won't give up on having a play friend even though Irish is clearly at least twice his size and basically could care less.

Maddux has gotten into a bad habit though. His favorite place to catch a snooze is the recliner. So you're thinking, 'oh that makes sense, catching a snooze in the recliner'. Ummm, no. His favorite place to snooze is under the recliner. Yes, somehow he manages to squeeze his fluffy little orange and white bundle of cuteness underneath the recliner. Every time someone sits in it they have to tip it forward whilst someone else checks underneath. How do we get him out of this habit, when we don't see him sneak in there? We like our orange and white bundle of cuteness fluffy, not flat!

Irish has a bad habit that is driving Anastasia crazy. Instead of having a regular kitty meal, she likes to snack. Her habit is to take her paw, flick a piece of cat food out of the dish and chomp it down. The thing is, apparently she gets distracted sometimes and flicks the cat food out and then doesn't eat it. Or perhaps it doesn't appear to have as much crunchy goodness as the other pieces in the dish? Anyway, this makes for lots of dry cat food littering the floor. Maddux on the other hand is neat as a pin. Not a single piece of kitty food litters the floor by his dish.

Oh, and 'some kitty' has figured out how to turn off the power strip the wireless modem is connected to. Grrrr.

Ahhhh, kittens. Good idea getting TWO. Better idea getting them right before Christmas! LOL! Live and learn, pally. :)

Awwww. I miss the kitteny days of our cats, tho Pru has retained plenty of her "bad kitten habits." She, too, like to flick a "cruncher" out of the bowl and eat it off the floor. But she's such a little piggy, she'd never get distracted and forget about it.

@ Lin - Oh come on! They're too cute!

@ JD - I don't understand what's with the food all over the floor either. If it were only one flavor/color on the floor, maybe...but it's not.

We have one cat and he's an outdoor cat. We used to let him in until he peed everywhere and insisted on sitting only in MY spot. He tries every now and again to get in but he's too much of a mess now to be an indoor cat.

Oh yes they can be smart and dumb at the same time,lol.

Cute photos!

We have two hand feeders in our bunch, as we call them. And one will take food and carry it off to eat. lol Hopefully you figure out the recliner situation - maybe a box with a blanket inside (the lid still on) and a hole cut out for them to hang out in? Sounds like he's trying to hide.
