My Crazy, Loony-Tunes Cat

Mr. Innocent?

Mr. Innocent?

As many of you know, we got a new kitten on my birthday and let me tell you, he has brought so much joy into my life, it’s crazy. He’s so funny and into everything. We’ve had to start keeping our garbage disposal covered with the metal sink stopper because he likes to get that gross, yucky part with the black flaps out and bat it around the kitchen floor. The first time my husband found that thing on the floor, he asked me why I pulled it out and I said it had to be the cat. He said there was no way that cat did it. The very next day, I came in and watched the crazy animal pull it out with his teeth after manipulating it with his paw. Who needs opposable thumbs? Not my Hobbes.

We can’t set dishes in the sink to soak either. He plays in the sink. When I brush my teeth in the bathroom sink, he’s right there wanting to play. I’ve never had a cat like water like Hobbes does. He drinks out of the faucet and doesn’t even mind getting wet under it.

He hangs out in the fireplace (not when there’s a fire- he has a modicum of sense). He also will help himself to snacks. We’ve caught him grabbing the bag off the counter and gnawing through it (he never eats them all- just a little). I can’t always tell who’s plundering in the kitchen as my husband does that snack thing too with people food, but I seem to catch Hobbes a lot with the bag in mouth. They are called Temptations after all. I caught him on camera one day. He trotted off into the corner and turned his back on me. I made the worst parental mistake and rewarded his bad behavior by letting him have some.

He looks sweet and innocent but he’s a terror. He kept me amused when my dad was in the hospital and I was fretting. You can’t fret with this terror around. He won’t let you!

Here are some pictures of the little devil.
