Thor vs. the Fan

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.

      That's a whole lot of words to say "Don't watch the documentary, It's false because I say so! And my mom was the godliest prophet ever. Gwen 4EVA!"

      Exactly… and “y’all stay on board, you hear!”  Only a brief word about the loss of her husband at the end and no word about the loss of other lives.  Seemed to me like a sales pitch for Weigh Down classes.

      Elizabeth Shamblin Hannah posted this lengthy praise of her mother on the Weigh Down Ministries FB page…

       

      Thanks for sharing the long passage by Elizabeth. It is amazing to see the mindset that is still a part of RF. As I read through it I felt a mixture of sadness and anger. 
       

      I felt sadness because it is clear that the leaders of RF are completely blinded. They want to dismiss the documentary as “false accusations” from “enemies of God.” They want to claim that they have the TRUTH (always fully capitalized) and everything else is lies. From things Gwen taught while we were a part of RF, I know that if a prominent religious leader was killed in a manner such as she was she would have said that it was God’s judgment. But this writing makes it clear that they will not examine what they have done and people will continue to be hurt and abused by their controlling practices. 
       

      I felt anger because there is no remorse for anything they have done. The documentary brought that out regarding the death of the Smith boy - according to Gwen they did nothing wrong. They will not consider the stories of real experiences of real people that have damaged and, in some cases, destroyed lives. However I do believe that the lack of responsibility will lead to greater consequences.

      Besides this, it looked like a nice wedding, the video was well made, everyone seemed happy, the lack of Josh was refreshing. I know only some of the brothers were groomsmen but given TLC wasn't filming they might have chosen to include him if they'd wanted to. That or they edited him and fam out because they felt it wouldn't go down well with the fans, and that's fine by me too. They get the message, on some level.

      I also think the more ''younger Duggars'' wedding we will see, the less Josh will be included in the wedding parties. The smaller kids are probably not even that close to him. Josh married in 2008 and thus left home when Justin was 6 YO. I doubt they are that close (thank goodness).

      I used to think chattel slavery might be wrong, but thanks to Doug Wilson I now know that anything can be justified if you just ignore the verses that say it’s wrong!

      LOL, I read the Bible an awful lot for someone who's a hard-materialist atheist. But, then, I was raised culturally Christian, & US culture is so deeply steeped in Christianity, it's difficult to escape it.
      I like the Bible websites, tending to like the gateway one better than the hub one, for usability reasons. I really like that they have all the versions, all the different books, & all the commentaries. I did buy a Bible, in college lol, a big fat scholastic bible with all the books & a ton of footnotes. I started an atrocity project with it long ago & it's full of post-its.
      I've definitely developed a preference in versions, liking the NIV best so far, it's marvelously clear & the least disappointing when I dig into the depths. The KJVs are muddled & difficult to understand. Recently I've gotten to thinking that's why all these my-own-private-patriarchal-cult & grifters & et al like the KJVs so much, cuz they're a more obscure version that requires more 'explaining', is more open to interpretation. In addition to the obvious historical reasons why, like feeling all connected to the Pilgrim eras, & sounding all Shakespearean.
      I mostly end up reading the Bible as a fact-checking exercise, wondering what the verses & chapters say, the verses that people will have in their bios or social media postings. Tho' I do a fair amount of wondering why people think a thing that ostensibly has Biblical roots, digging around that.
      Fwiw.
