The Laughing Kitten
I had to share this photo of my kitten, Ash. It looks like he’s laughing, or at least smiling for the camera.
He is spending more and more time downstairs with us now, he desperately wants to play with his big sister but she’s not interested in him at all. What a shame. Maybe when he gets bigger she’ll like him more. He doesn’t really help matters when he sneaks up behind her and jumps at her. You can see he’s loving it, he’s so playful. But Sabrina just dismisses him with a hiss like he’s an annoying little brother.
mmmm, I was 8 years old when my Mum presented me with an annoying little brother, perhaps I know how she feels!
At night we are keeping them separated which means that Ash is staying in our bedroom still. He has settled down a lot which means I’m getting more sleep again. I do keep waking up with him lying on the pillow next to me though. He’s so tiny I really don’t mind. I do worry about him snuggling up by my feet though as my condition means that I have uncontrollable jerks in my legs and I’m frightened I’ll kick him across the room, have you ever seen a kitten fly?
Thankfully, he’s keeping all his scratching to his scratching post which is good seeing as we have new sofas. I guess with hindsight it wasn’t a good idea taking on a new kitten the week after getting new sofas but we have been lucky so far. He is also litter trained which is good.
He’s such a lovely little boy, we all love him so much, I wish we could keep him as a kitten as he’s so cute. But, I am looking forward to seeing what he’s like when he’s grown up. He’s my little tiger.
