Kitty Kapers

Kitty Moments…

Who would have thought that I — a person who pretty much loathed cats until 5 years ago — would be writing a gushing post about cats!

But people change. And the last few days with Pebbles have been so much fun! Here are just a few reasons why…

…she runs around like a manic kitty shooting from one room to the next exploring.

…and then sleeps a couple of hours later after tiring herself out.

…she attacks any moving piece of string as if it were prey.

…she loves sleeping in bed with me.

…she loves sleeping on or next to me.

…she had some separation anxiety for a few days. She’d meow if no one was in the room with her. And she’d make sure she slept close to someone so if we got up she’d wake up immediately and follow us.

…she comes up to me for a kiss in the morning and when I’m back from work. I kid you not.

…she learnt how to jump on the couch and the bed in a matter of two days.

…she loves playing with fingers and feet…and if you’re not careful, can start attacking them.

…she hides and when you say “Where’s Pebbles?” she jumps out.

…she loves anything that’s hanging and moving. And unfortunately, that involves a lot of electrical cords around the house.

…she doesn’t like me paying attention to books or the computer if she’s awake and she’ll sit on the keyboard or the book.

…she is oh-so-cute when asleep. The manner in which she tosses and turns and stretches. Makes you want to watch her the whole time.

I’m so glad I got her. I must admit I have had a lot of anxiety and guilt leaving her at home and going to work. Guess this is what it feels like when parents go back to work. I’ll leave you all with a photo of Pebbles. [again!]

By the way, I promise that all my posts henceforth are not going to be just gushy posts about Pebbles.

Until next time,

Cheers!!!

    I didn’t like cats much either, I was almost phobic because of a bad childhood experience. Though I love animals in general. I had to live with a friend who had a cat for a couple of weeks and we (the cat and I) fell so in love with each other.

    I am planning to get cats too… looking for some to adopt. They are so much more apartment friendly than dogs.

    Loving the pictures, she is the cutest!

    Welcome here Ambi! Cats are able to be left alone more so than dogs as they tend to do their own thing. They also don’t gulp down their entire food in one go preferring to snack so as long as their food and water bowl has what’s required, they are fine during the day. And finally, as they have a litter box which they use on their own, they don’t have to be taken out for the toilet. So yea, no day cares…but she’s left at home!

    Prathama…I too had a negative experience with a cat when younger…got scratched by one on the face when I was 3 or 4. Was never phobic but didn’t like them! Would love to see pics of your cats when you get them. As you said, definitely more apartment friendly than dogs. I’d feel way more guilty having a dog in an apartment.
