She's gotten so much friendlier since even this morning! Now she is playing a lot more, and even playing with me, even though she won't quite admit it. She's turned getting chased into a game (I think she's telling me she doesn't want to be locked in the bathroom again tomorrow, because I don't think I can catch her to get her in there even if I tried now). We ran around the couch and dining room table, and at first I thought she was still scared, but she didn't dash right back to any of her hiding spots, even when she had the chance, instead, she started doubling back to check I was still chasing! :biggrin: Yep, she's figured out it's a big game. She's killed her fuzzy mouse a few times over, and loves the cat fishing lure (the only way I can get her out from under the TV stand!)

She's now hiding under the TV stand (she found out I can't reach her under there) and I think she's going to wind up falling asleep there because she's been running around like a crazy kitten and looked pretty tired out as she crawled under. :biggrin:

It wasn't my fault!
I didn't do anything!
Why is everyone always blaming me for...!!!
! :uhh:


Oh you were just wondering what we did. :redface: Nothing really. Thanks for asking. :smile:

Dang 'it Artman, we keep telling you to be careful not to trip over that extension cord! :grumpy:

:rofl:

My kitten has decided she likes me afterall. :smile: She's turned into a whole new kitten tonight, and it's wonderful. She's been running and playing and finding more things to get into (she discovered stairs to the second floor, so I had to hurry up and clean up there too so she can't get anything she shouldn't have). And now, she's sitting against my leg grooming herself in between TV watching. She climbed up to me all by herself. :smile: She finally forgave me for the bath I guess. :redface: Though, she's also figured out how the keyboard works (what a smart kitten). She already knows how to use the touchpad to select text and then press the spacebar to delete it all! :rofl: Thank goodness for "undo."

And she's soft, and snuggly, still slightly Juniper scented from her bath (though, not so much today), and I'm worse than new parents when it comes to talking about her and bragging about her. But, she's definitely smart. I only had to tell her "No" twice before she learned what it meant, and she hasn't attempted any more jumps onto the coffee table (I want her to learn that tables and kitchen counters are off limits, but she's allowed on couches and beds...I think I'm just going to make all things with hard surfaces off limits though, so it will seem somewhat consistent to her what she can and can't jump on, so bathroom counters and desks will be off-limits too, even though I don't care so much about that.)

That's okay, with all of the cat lovers here you can brag all that you want. :approve:

:rofl: Her first bath was very traumatic. There's no easy way to do it when you really just need to douse her with water to make sure all the farm dirt and bugs are off her (at least she didn't have ticks like the rest of the litter does).

She was even purring a short time ago! But is getting annoyed I'm not letting her type. :rofl:

Just forget about that, "they've tried" part... :blushing:

I assume that those are genuine Disney cuffs and straps?

EE-yow! :surprised I'm guessing those didn't come from the Disney store!
(edit: ha ha - warped minds think alike Ivan!)

yeah, sure. I am spending Fall quarter working on psych research projects so restraints might come in handy. some people get a little skittish the first time you shock 'em. :biggrin:

Both of our cats are trained to stay off all counters and tables whenever a human is in the room. Actually, if there's almost never anything interesting left on the tables or counters, I think the cats might almost never get up there. And if one them does get up there once in a while, I'm pretty sure it's only so they can keep a better eye on the other one, just to make sure the other cat isn't doing something it's not supposed to.

Really! There is only one way to give a cat a proper bath, and I have a sensitive gag-reflex that prevents me from being a proper cat-parent.
