Time to meet the family

Before my computer was stolen I got a good deal on a digital camera, but now it's gone, but I still have the camera so it's time to meet my lovely kittyfaceheads.

This is Mischief:
She likes to follow random people home and to hang out with the neighbours. We go on walks and she responds to her name. She also runs up to greet me everytime I come home. Has also been known to drink water out of fish bowls and likes to play in the shower. She's 3 and my friend's found her running around the inside of a grocery store when she was a kitten. Somehow she charmed her way into my life (I was only supposed to watch her til they found a place for her, but now she's my best friend in the world.)

But wait....what's over there?

This room isn't blocked off usually...hmmmm, better investigate closer.

OH NOES! It seems that there are some intruders in the house!

Yep, not everything has been sucky lately, though Mischief's unpleasantness with the interlopers has made hard times even harder. I miss her so much. She doesn't even sleep with me anymore, but hopefully that'll change.

Meet Logan. So far he's the only cat in the house who likes me right now and ALWAYS wants attention, pets, and treats.

He likes to chew on electrical cords, lick my nose, chase his sister, and generally try and get into as much trouble as Mischief, who he also likes to follow around the house. He's also still pretty clumsy as he's got big paws and hasn't quite grown into them yet. We were snuggling on my bed the other day (which is lofted) and he rolled over right off the bed. Tehehe. I usually like to name my cats acccording to personality, but after all the stupid questions about his sister's name, he got the name Logan, partly as a joke, partly because I like that name, and partly because it stops people from asking the stupid questions about his sister's name.

And this is his sister Wolverine (named for my personal radical feminist mascot). She's a flurry of tooth and claw. She's been being socialised since the beginning of June and I just got her to purr last week (incidentally when I stopped petting her she hissed at me and ran away).
She enjoys growling, hissing, scratching, and biting anyone who gets in her space. Also if you are in the room and she happens to walk in she will generally stop and hiss at you before carrying on, just to remind you that she doesn't like you. (But she's so cute!!!)

Wolverine and Logan were found with their 2 littermates hanging out by the art annex on campus. I only wanted to take one, but it's best that Wolver-"I'll rip your face off"-ine and Lo-"I just want you to love and play with me forever"-gan went to a home together. I think it's one of the reasons I can now pick her up without a towel (though still very carefully), and the reason she's gotten so comfortable around me so quickly. They're about 19 weeks now and getting fixed on Thursday (which will hopefully help sort out the Mischief hates me situation), but these pictures were taken a month ago when I first got them.

So there you go. These are my cutie heads. I did warn y'all that if I got a digital camera this place would be smattered with pictures, right? Oh and here's one more, cuz it's just too damn cute to leave out:

Awww! Too cute!

You know, there is something about feminist blogs and posting pictures of cats... We all must be those crazy cat ladys I get warned about.

Sarah Louise Parry said...

Yeah, feminist and cats seem to go hand in hand... well paw in paw lol

Adorable pictures, at least you were able to salvage such lovely snapshots.

Tabbies are gorgeous.

They're darling! And a lot less messy than kids - I've got 2 of each in the house.

Sarah: well, paw in paw

You mean paw in hand, right? (*frantically checks hand for signs of fur and claw growth*)

Those are some cute whisker-face-heads, LC. :0)

Kittens! You jammy thing! There's nothing better than kittens.

I'm fed up this weekend, because we have to move out on Sunday and I'm not going to see my little cat friend from around here any more.
:( How are you keeping my lovely?

lost clown said...

We just realise that cats are the bestest ever.

Kind of OK, A. Will hopefully be getting a new computer soon. Gotta love credit card debt. :(

Shit. Email me, I'm having a total fucking nightmare at the moment. Isn't life really nice and easy :(
