Josie curls up
I played with the visual effects on this one a little ... I think it turned out really neat. It helps to have a pretty model.

Another nap with mom
Huggy Bear and Josie curled up with mom while she napped in front of the tv. By rule, if the kittens are sleeping with you, you must also nap.

Mom was making some white bean chili today and she let us all snack on a little of the extra chicken. Huggy Bear got sprayed with the water bottle because he wouldn't stay off the counter, but I sat on the microwave (away from the chicken) and showed great self control while mom cut up the chicken. Sure, I was tempted to get in the mix, but I've never had to scavenge like the kittens, so I have a little more patience. Josie doesn't show much interest in getting on the counter. Maybe it's a boy thing.

Another "River Otter"
This is another "river otter" picture ... you can see it a little better here. I think I slept in bed like this for the better part of the day. No worries.

This is what mom refers to as my "river otter" pose. I love to sleep on my back all stretched out. (Picture taken with a low flash...)

Wrestling in the kitchen
I was relaxing in the kitchen, watching Josie and Huggy Bear wrestle when Huggy Bear saw me and decided to get me instead. I'm hurdling over him here.

Washing his mouth out with soap
Huggy Bear is washing his mouth out with soap. He must have said "Fudge!" (But not really fudge ... the queen mother of all cuss words ...)

Playing ball with the kittens
Dad and I played ball with the kittens tonight when he got home from work. I was sitting in one of the dining room chairs and dad would lob one of the fuzzy balls toward me and I would bat it back. (At one point, three out of four went straight to dad and he caught it ... we were on a roll!) Then the kittens got in the mix. I would bat the balls different places and Josie and Huggy Bear would chase them around. It was a lot of fun.

OK... mom and dad have either trained Josie, or Josie has trained them. either way, whenever they open the fridge, Josie comes trotting in for an ice cube. She likes their random nature as she bats them across the kitchen floor. (She's played with five today already.) It's good clean fun, just watch for the puddles when you're wearing socks ... yuck!

Fired up kitten
Josie is a little fired up right now. Maybe it's because Huggy Bear and I were napping with mom, but she knew she was welcome. But now she's attacking Huggy Bear. To be honest, he's letting her. He will walk in front of her real slow and she will dive at him broadside and take him down. Quite a bit of fun to watch!

With the wintry weather hitting the country, I thought I'd post a picture of my only snow experience. We used to live in Iowa, and in March of 2003, we had a bit of a snowfall. So mom and dad put my harness and leash on me and took me out to play in the snow. It did not last too long (none of my trips outside do), but I did enjoy attacking the snow.

Last night, when mom and dad went to the store, they picked up a Coke at Target (a little treat, since they usually don't drink soft drinks) and when they came home, mom set the cup on the counter to unload groceries. Huggy Bear, in his newfound exploration of all things counter, decided to chew on the straw. Mom saw what he had done and laughed, but then a few minutes later, she absentmindedly drank from the chewed on straw. "Huggy Bear!" she said, and laughed as she trimmed the chewed straw bit off.

Huggy Bear made a big mess today. In his new found adventures of walking on the kitchen bar, he discovered mom's fountain. I guess he got so excited when he was playing with the water, he knocked the fountain off the counter and all the rocks and water went splat on the floor. It scared mom half to death. And what a mess!!
Silly little kitten!!
Silly little kitten!!

Lost my haven
Huggy Bear and Josie have both figured out how to get up onto the counter and the microwave, so I have lost my safe haven. Mom and dad try to keep them off, and for the most part, Josie doesn't show much interest. But Huggy Bear is like a typical little brother, he wants to be and do whatever big brother is doing.

It is always exciting when mom and dad return from the grocery store. When they make their big trip, that is the best. There are always plenty of plastic bags to chew on (potato and apple bags are my favorite) and if I'm quick, and mom and dad aren't watching closely, I can jump on the refrigerator door while mom is unloading bags into the fridge and I can chew on Joe Bender Cat. (He is my nemesis ... something about that darned magnet!)

Tags for the kittens
The kittens' tags came today. Mom and dad ordered them from Boomerang Tags and they are surprisingly better than expected for a great price. At first, the tags drove them nuts, like a bug was on them. The rabies tag for Huggy Bear drove him even crazier. But they've already gotten used to them and are all settled down.

I got to play ball with dad last night. The kittens were sleeping, so I got to jump around and bat the ball away like a pro goaltender. But once dad accidentally rustled a bag, Josie was up and she attacks me as I try to play and that's less fun...

Josie and Huggy Bear were sleeping like a yen-yang symbol today, curling around each other head to tail and contrasting black and white, but when mom tried to get the camera they hopped up to follow her.

Josie was sleeping on the chair yesterday with her head covered by her paws. Right before the picture, she rolled into this cute upside-down pose.

Paper bag tunnel
Dad made a paper bag tunnel for the kittens. They play in it some. Usually, when one is in the tunnel, the other pounces on the tunnel. I took a little nap in the tunnel today. I love paper bags.

Coming at you
Huggy Bear was laying among the books he knocked onto the floor. I guess he can't decide which to read. (The stack in the back right was pulled down by dad so I could jump into the bookshelf. He knew I'd clear them out on my own if he didn't move them.) when Huggy Bear saw the camera, he decided to investigate. (I tried to lighten the picture some so you could see his pretty face.)

Swept under the rug
No floor rug is flat in this house. Huggy Bear is a master hunter when it comes to mom's hair bands.

Josie is fighting this bag. What you can't quite see it that she put her entire body through the other handle and was rolling around with the bag. At this point, she has decided to chew the other handle.

Momma cat is pregnant again. Look at the fullness of her belly. Mom and dad have already said they're not going to let themselves get attached to this litter. It is so irresponsible to not get her fixed if they plan on letting her out with all the feral cats in the area.

Poor Little Huggy Bear
Today Huggy Bear had to get neutered. He was so sad in the car, I thought he was in a lot of pain. But after I got him home, he was just fine. He's eating, drinking, and jumping into the window sills...I think he's fine.

Josie somehow managed to topple the cat grass over last night, dumping all the contents upside-down on the floor. It was about dead anyway, but what a mess!

Tug of war
The kittens were having a little tug of war with a plastic bag tonight. The guest bathroom has two doors, and one was open, the other closed. A plastic grocery bag had gotten partway under the closed door, so Huggy Bear was on one side and Josie on the other. Whenever one would stop pulling, the other would pull it and the one who stopped would run back and get it again. Eventually they got distracted, but I'm sure they'll come back to finish the game.

Josie chasing the cursor
Josie has really started to go after the pointer on the computer screen. She will purr like crazy and swat at it. Sometimes this will hinder mom's games she likes to play, but she's ok with it because Josie is really cute. Uncle Doug and Aunt Cathy (and the kids) sent us some fun Christmas gifts. They sent a fuzzy feather that the kittens have really enjoyed hunting. But their favorite is "red bug" (a lazer pointer) that they will chase into exhaustion.

Huggy Bear behind the books
Huggy Bear enjoys one of my favorite spots behind the books. I usually sleep behind books on the other bookshelf and he takes this side.
