Adultier adults keep asking me questions about when I will become an adultier adult. And my answer?
Maybe some day.
But I know you readers are like, "Cat. TELL US ABOUT THE CAT!"
So I will.
So last night I got to show off da babes. And she is has DEFINITELY claimed me as her human. Like, she might be OUR pet, but I am HER human.
I also learned that she likes to perch on my shoulder.. which is great now, but when she gets bigger... that MIGHT be a problem haha.
I also learned that she fits very nicely into my sweatshirt pocket. And I went outside to go check my mail, and had stashed her in my pocket. Then I saw some friends, so I went over and said hi. We exchanged pleasantries, and then I go, "I have a kitten in my pocket."
The looks on their faces! Both disbelief and hope.
So I moved the pocket a little so you could see sweet Nessie's little face and the two girls just about flipped out.
I also learned that when she is done being held by others and she knows I am near, she starts trilling really really loud.
Seriously, she doesnt even meow yet! (Except when she is really hungry or annoyed) and she can barely walk straight, and her turning... not quite there yet.
Anyways, people hand her back to me when she starts trilling, and she zips to under my chin and starts purring and stops trilling.
I am her human.
And it is a wonderful feeling.
Then last night I was trying to get her settled down and she and I fell asleep on the floor, she was curled in the crook of my arm. My roommate walked in and that is what woke me up.
So I tried to carefully move her into her little box.. but... she woke up.
But she trilled and trilled and trilled and would have none of that. And I was so tired that I just picked her up (bad thing I am sure) and she fell asleep again. Then I realized. She just wants warmth and she feels safe with my scent. So I took off the hoodie I was wearing for skin protection, and wrapped it around her, and then put both into the box, and she slept all the way through the night.
So then this morning.
I was going to take her to my friends apartment cause the kitten needs to be fed every three hours or so.
But my friend wasn't awake, I mean the kitten barely woke up.
So I slid her into my hoodie pocket and snuck her to work.
We had to walk past my boss' office, and out walks my boss! He holds a conversation with me, while I send up a silent prayer asking God not to let Nessie trill. And my hand was in my pocket making sure she didn't peep out.
And we made it to the desk. So I decided to try to feed her cause she had started doing her trilling. Well actually it was mostly mewing cause she was hungry.
And then my boss walks by and goes, "What is that?! Oh my Lord!"
Cause she is tiny.
And so he held her, and I told him someone was coming to pick her up. And that I couldn't get her to eat. And so he tried.
She had NONE of it.
Then my friend came and picked her up.
So that has been my adventure so far!
Now I have to finish prepping for later this afternoon cause I am testing the ballet class on one of my bosses. So I am super nervous!
