One of the rescue groups (where I got Emma my dog and Mia from) put a kitten on hold for me last week. I couldn't get there until Tuesday this week as had to organise transport (it was nearly a 3 hour drive). I met him, his siblings and his mum. His mum had been taken to the pound when she was pregnant and was obviously someone's pet as she was so friendly and affectionate. She came over to me first and then this little white kitten came up and said hello. The other siblings ran away. We spent a bit of time together and I was smitten. He is such a confident kitten - when I bought him into the house, it was like he had always lived here. He is super affectionate (and demanding), talks a lot (think it might be complaints) and meows when I am not in the room (so I have to go and find him). He is still spitting at the dog as he hasn't been near dogs before but he is definitely curious about her. His personality is just so different to Mia's which is a good thing. He woke me up twice during the night for cuddles and playtime so hope he will outgrow this. He is 9 weeks old and is like a ray of sunshine in my life.

Casper has turned into the White Devil. He is nearly 7 months old and already the size of most cats. He looses control and the brain switches off - he has broken so many things. He loves water and I have to buy a paver to glue a water bowl on it so he cant knock it over. The poor dog is now on water rations. He likes to drop his toys into the water bowl and fish them out again. I cant leave water in the sink when I am washing up the dishes as he gets in there. He is fascinated by the flushing toilet and gets up on the seat to watch it. He has his own little "bath" in the shower - it is a litter tray converted to a bath. I take him to visit friends and when we come home he goes and has a bath - obviously to clean himself from their "dirty" house I have never come across a cat so intrigued by water. He bashes the dog up regularly (she is 11 years old in May) and she sometimes fights back but, at other times, she snaps at him so he knows to back off - for a few seconds! He is fixated with the birds so he isn't allowed in their room - but that doesn't stop him from trying to get in and if my attention is distracted for a second, he is in there. He reaches into the bottom part of Shah's cage - Shah comes down to the bottom of the cage and entices the cat to put his paw in - so Shah can bite it. They are as bad as each other. He is charging through the house while I am writing this - sounds like a herd of elephants. But he hasn't stopped waking me during the night for cuddles and when he knows he has gone too far, he seeks me out and purrs loudly until I pick him up for a cuddle. Little devil!
Casper certainly has a unique personality. An aunt and uncle of mine had a cat who learned to flush the toilet and liked to watch the water swirl down the drain, but that's nothing compared with Casper's fascination with water.

Well now I have 2 kittens running amok. Missy has been with me for a week and a half and took over the house from the moment she walked in. It has taken Casper a week to adjust to her but they are learning to live together. She is a dark tabby, 6 months old and was scheduled for euthanasia. Her personality is becoming more and more dominant. She pushes Casper off his food and I go to sleep with Casper laying across my arm and wake up with Missy laying there. The good news is that Missy doesn't care about Emma (the dog) and Casper has stopped beating her up - he now has Missy to do that to. It is just his form of playing which is extremely rough and, when she gets a bit bigger, she will give him a run for his money
