We put up a cat climbing wall today. Two of the boys really like it. The third may need some time before he’s comfortable with it.

Really pretty girl!
They are a very loving and loyal breed. They are not lap cats, but enjoy being with humans all the time. She prefers to lie on the couch next to someone rather than on a lap. She will come running to you if she has not seen you for a while. She cannot stand it if the wife and I are in the same room with the door closed and tries to push her way in and will cry incessently until she is allowed in. I think she suspects that we may be plotting against her, or just suffers from fear of missing out. After months of carefully studying us when we operate doors, I have seen her jumping to try and reach the handle, which is disconcerting.

Her favourite hobbies are rolley polleys, tummy scratches and playing fetch with a ping pong ball. She is obsessed with spending hours watching sinks very carefully. I think she is concerned that something may crawl out of there, so she feels the need to guard. She also loves drinking water straight from the tap and will often use it to wash her paws.

Our new kitten has been growing and she is something else. Follows me around the house everywhere I go. If the door to my office is closed, she'll just sit right outside the door and meow. If ignored, she'll go find her favorite toy and drop it right by the door. I don't know if that's supposed to be a gift or an invitation to play (she plays fetch with it). She has so much personality.

Oreo is getting good at the harness thing. He demands to be walked every day now, and is every bit as good as a dog when it comes to understanding the order of things. He races over when I pick up the harness, allows me to put it on him, and happily prances out the door on the leash. If only he would go somewhere instead of just meandering around the yard.

Sounds like my two kitties. They follow me everywhere. They have to see what I’m doing.

Yeah my kitty Grace was a serious sewing studio supervisor. I had to remove her from the room when I was cutting fabrics, for fear she'd end up meeting the cutter or shears. Irrepressible "student" of every other damn thing I ever did too, not just in the studio. I was only half joking when suggesting to a friend that she was paying attention to an origami video intently because her next move was going to be to grab some paper and give it a shot.

I don’t have a cat :cautious:

Hah, then you have "NO IDEA !!" what you are missing. There are upsides and then there are the three a.m. drape climbing episodes. Or in my experience once, being gifted a live grass snake in my bedroom one night by a lilttle huntress who was very proud of herself. Yeah. Downside, definitely.
