Penny has not come out of the bedroom in weeks. Sure she comes out to eat, drink… expel. Oh and lets not forget when she runs into the living room to shred the furniture… before running back into the bedroom, her daily cardio. She just doesn’t hang out anymore. She used to lay nearby all the time, now I can never find her. Penny’s really been into hiding in my hamper, under the bed and in her carrier. Unless shes in the bedroom window stalking her least favorite squirrel. I almost feel bad installing the air conditioner on her, which is why I’ve barely slept what with all the tossing and turning due to overheating. The above picture was taken yesterday when I had my camera within arms reach of Penny pleading for attention.
Just for fun I added a second photo, Penny after we came home from the Mets game a few weeks ago… the things she lets me do to her.
I can’t tell you how many photos I have of this kitty in various stages of nap. She is so freaking cute! I recently gave her a ball of yarn to play with and she’s gotten in the habit of being a million times cuter, I don’t know how Terrence and I are going to survive this. I’ll try to get a picture of her playing with the yarn soon, view at your own risk.
I put Penny in this box and closed it up so I could present it to Terrence as a gift. Once he was done being psyched about his awesome kitty, I took her away and returned the box to the floor so she could hop out. Instead of leaving the box Penny decided to camp out in it… because she’s adorable.
Today I wanted to focus on one of my favorite parts of Miss Pussycat, her nose. We believe our kitty to be the most beautiful of all kitties, and this teeny detail may be the biggest reason. When she was a kitten she had ringworm on her nose, and even then it was still adorable. Disease ridden, but adorable. She only got slightly irritated by me taking incredibly close range photos of her today. Penny let me know when she was done by putting her little paw on the camera lens, damn cute kitty. I then stopped and played some games with her, then gave her a couple of treats as payment for her hard work.
I’d forgotten all about catnip. Today while Terrence and I were cleaning up the apartment we had the coffee table compartment open and Penny climbed in. While inside the table she discovered her canister of catnip and began nudging it with her nose. Damn cute kitty.
Terrence’s parents and his sister live across the street. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy living so close to his family, but they really are the best neighbors. Terrence has become obsessed with the idea of moving lately and one my biggest motivators for wanting to stay is our proximity to his family.
One of the nice things about our neighbors are they’re adorable pets. They have 3 cats (Bubbles, Buttercup and Sam) and a dog (Cali). Buttercup is an odd cat, she’s just about the most lovable creature on the planet. She constantly wants you to pet her and in return she’ll lick your hand raw as long as its near her. When Cali moved in about two years ago it was the perfect pairing for Buttercup. Finally, she had a friend that would allow her to cuddle all day. Its a bizarre love affair.
