kitten update

omg. they are so cute. it's like, if you were going to get trained actor kitties to portray stereotypical kittens in a movie, they would act like this. and reviewers would be all "this is SO  unrealistic! kittens don't REALLY act this way! it's totally based on false stereotypes! puh-leeze."

We have four, instead of five or six. two nearly identical gray ones with white socks and wee white bibs (one with a white flame on its nose), and two nearly identical white ones with gray mullet patches (M-shaped in the front, down the back of their head to around the base of their skull – one gray patch splits in the middle a little, the other is a little longer on one side than the other). They're hard to tell apart. They are pretty well bonded in pairs – one bray and one white in each pair – and have very distinct personalities. One pair are all about tussling. They are constantly play-fighting, stalking each other, and generally being feisty. The other pair are more mellow. They will play together with a ball or a mouse. One of the second pair (the gray one) is a serious lap cat, and will hop on your lap whenever you sit down. The white one likes perching on a shoulder.

They all sleep in a pile most of the time, and sometimes split into their pairs. It kills me every time.

Pictures soon!

sophie on the important issues

on the way home from school yesterday, sophie and i were talking about politics, the presidential race, what it means to be "liberal", and where i stand on things. i explained what i like about the various candidates, and she asked a very important question that i think hasn't been adequately addressed in the debates yet:

"but are any of them for the kittens?"

i'll have to go back and research their platforms.
