Hi. I’m Hannah.
The Kitten Mom and I have been hanging out indoors all day long because it is really hot and smoky outside. A brand new box of toys came from Chewy this week and I was so excited to help the Kitten Mom unpack it. There was kitten food (!), kitty litter (ugh) and some toys. The best thing in the box, however, was the packing paper!!!!
I go crazy running through the paper with my toys and every single time the Kitten Mom walks by I flop over in the papers, meow, and make the Kitten Mom pet me for a few minutes. She has been remarkably easy to train, the Kitten Mom.
Then there are the toys that I find by carefully exploring the house. I got the best ribbon in the world off of the new orchid plant, and after dragging around a plastic bag with spinning fiber the Kitten Mom gave me a skein of yarn in a plastic bag secured with a hair tie. That yarn is the best kick toy ever!!
I play a lot in the bathroom in the mornings. I pull up the drain plug in the bathtub, chase through the shower curtains, and put my toys under the rugs. I sleep on the wet towels after the Kitten Mom’s showers and help her water floss her teeth at night. The bathroom is a whole kitten playground!! My favorite, by far, is the toilet!! Oh, my goodness! This is so cool!
I do have to mention that there are some things that the Kitten Mom seems to feel are NOT toys. I tore a piece of the fern off and she was very disappointed with me. Oh. That plant is not a toy, I guess. She actually said NO! to me. I dragged the Teflon sheet that she uses while working on the quilt downstairs and she took that away from me too. Hey, I only tore it up a little bit… those holes aren’t that big. It was okay because that is when she gave me the bag of yarn to kick and bite on. Finally, there is the issue with yarn. I like to bite the yarns in half. The Kitten Mom is always a little sad when I do it, so I am stopping that too.
Notes from the Kitten Mom:
- There are several serious fires burning in Colorado this week. The I-70 freeway through the Rocky Mountains is closed right now because of a fire and there is a really large one on the western slope too. The weather continues to be hot, dry, and windy which isn’t helping the fire fighters. I’m indoors for now avoiding the smoke.
- Hannah is the easiest kitten to raise ever!!
