Thor vs. the Fan


Imrlgoddess

1,438 views

There is no more quiet, sleepy jellybean.  There is only ZOOOM kitty who leaps and bounds and tries to maul the oscillating button on the fan.  I missed the opportunity to catch him RIDING the fan!  Kitten Rodeo ya'll.  Real life has started again with Little Hooman and I back in school but he's very happy when we come home.  He has run of the house and we've learned to shuffle our feet and glance down before we step, he's so itty bitty!  But he is fast!  He's learned to kind of stay near the edges of the kitchen counters so he is out of the way of feets.  He's somewhat intrigued by Outside but the front door squeaks enough to freak him out and Princess smells different so he's not sold on the idea (thank everything Holy).  Texi has been play fighting with him so he's learning to Cat quite well, from an expert no less!   The Princess is still unimpressed, but he is infatuated with her long fur.  When he's not attacking hands and feet, he's sleeping on a shoulder or under my chin purring big big.

Oh good grief...could he be ANY more adorable? He's getting fuzzy, poofy, big and bad! I wish I could snuggle him. Give him snuggles and skritches from the crazy lady on the other side of the US...

So happy he is going strong. You did a great job there through all those sleepless nights! 

I love how kitties are all fan-wrangling action one moment and then they just keel over the next moment for an instant nap!

I feel like my own bambini would be jealous if they knew how much I wanna snuggle this little muffin. I so hope you can get footage of him riding the fan. That's better than riding a roomba.

my Thor-clone will stand on a chair behind the dog's rump and take swings at his wagging tail.  he chases literally everything that moves, including feet.  he likes to follow me up the stairs, and he will chase my fingers up the bannister; if it's dark, his little claws always startle me.

When did Thor start getting stripes?  He's a tiger kitty!

@Palimpsest  the stripes showed up a while back....but it's weird, they are only really visible in high light.  I'm very curious to see if they become more defined as he ages.  The Old Man looks so different than he did as kitten so I'm kind of steeling myself in case he goes more tabby than sleek black kitteh.  

Thank ya'll so much for all the support and encouragement, I tell him all the time that he's got a big fan club!  :my_smile:

May the Mighty Thor stick to fans in his future.  Charlie did this today: he jumped onto a shelf that couldn't support eight pounds of hurtling cat and dumped a bunch of jewelry.  But he sure looked innocent later!!

I feel your pain, @catlady. Half the stuff in my house only stays on the table/counter it's put on because I've stuck it there with museum wax or gel. I invested in a couple huge cans after Speck shoved an antique (it was my husband's grandmother's) cut glass punch bowl off the counter. I turned my back for TEN MINUTES and what does she do? Smash the only truly irreplaceable breakable thing in the house. Cats.

We don't have any truly decorative shelves, they can all hold at least 30 pounds and are mounted to studs. Even the bookshelves are secured to the wall. Because, well, cats.

At least you have carpet, I guess, some padding for the inevitable Stuff Rain.

Cable guy came today to fix our cable...Leia split. She was laying on the floor by the sliding glass door, saw the guy, got this utterly panicked look on her face and ran to her favorite hiding place. She hid for a good couple of hours. her brother...yeah, he was on the table enjoying life. 

Fortunately, neither one of my dynamic duo is really destructive (but then again, there ain't much out here in the oversized closet). 

Hubby just translated Charlie "I didn't do it, I didn't do it. I was here the whole time".

Speaking of kitteh destruction...this morning, we awoke to a broken glass, almost everything on the bar and behind the sink either on the floor or IN the sink.  Looks like they had a good time last night. Now, they're both playing innocent.

OK.  I've changed my mind.  No cats.  The dogs are quite destructive enough!

if my male wasn't such a jerk...this is really the first time they've been THIS destructive. We usually just find stuff on the floor.

I've just finished with a pretty major remodel/overhaul at my house.  Finally ready for the little details like what shelves go where on the wall and with what on them.  I'd been looking forward to putting this beautiful wood plank just near the front door, over the coat pegs, and then displaying some oil lamps and candle lanterns.  Finally got the shelf up the other day, gathered the lamps and lanterns, set them out -- and then looked around to the couch, a nearby piece of furniture, and that shelf which is suddenly obviously reachable by cat...

Sigh.  Re-designed my plan to have only metal stuff up there, no glass.  At least as long as the furniture stays in this arrangement.  I've seen how high these kitties can jump, and they're still little!

Luke can do about a 5 foot vertical jump. Leia can do about a 4 foot vertical jump. They're not usually jumpers or destructive...but...

years back, i had a cat that could jump about 6 vertical feet.  we lived where they could be outdoors, and this cat, a really pretty white long-hair with dark green eyes, would jump onto the top edge of a shed door to get on the roof.  

Charlie above is on a 6.5-foot cat tree; he doesn't jump that high, but he'll climb the verticals like a squirrel.

As soon as we have a bigger place, I'll be getting them a couple of cat trees. They have one that's about 4 feet tall right now. I got that one when they were babies...they need a bigger one.

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.

      It is possible for spouses and children of defendants in federal CSA/child porn cases to request (and receive) mental health services through the Federal Defender Victim/Witness programs. But the key detail is that it has to be requested and typically that happens in situations where the spouse is trying to separate/divorce from the offender.

      “The discrimination was awful, and TSA held us up for over an hour and made us late for our first flight.”

      My husband flies with his mobility assistance gear all the time for work, including into and out of Seattle. He says their claim sounds like absolute rubbish. Every interaction he has had with the Seattle airport has been professional, swift,  and courteous. 
       

      Over the years he has used a  cane, walker, manual wheelchair and power chair. At every turn the Seattle airport has been kind and competent, 

      Well we all know how entitled Artemis is, no surprise they figured they could run late and the TSA line would part for them like the Red Sea in the Ten Commandments because they have mobility devices and cats. The "awful discrimination" was probably other people who told them to wait in line and the TSA staff probably reiterated that using mobility devices does not give them the right to expect special treatment.

      Counseling would come from a different court than the criminal court Josh was in.  It would only be ordered due to a CPS investigation.
