The joys of kittens
« on: June 27, 2004, 06:04:39 pm »
OK, so I was sitting here at the computer a few days ago, and my little kitten Saber as sitting curled up in a little ball, purring away, half asleep.  Occasionally he would stretch out, and paw at my arm as I typed and email.  I had stopped paying much attention to him, and he lay there when I felt the searing pain of his tiny sharp little teeth piercing through my jeans into my testicle.
Saber now knows how to fly.

But tell me, can you heal what father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?
Tell me, can you heal what father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?

And the moral of the story is be sure to wear your cup while typing with a kitten on your lap.

I thank God I grew up in an age when a kid could still play with things that could put his eye out.

Oh yes, he certainly did.  The new policy is "no kitten on the lap"

 Wait until he discovers the game " Attack the thing moving under the covers" you will really get a purple heart then!!
 PS the greatest cat toy is the plastic ring you get from the top of milk cartons; I don't know what it is but every one i have ever seen thinks it is the greatest thing in the world to play with.
 give it a try. :)

And hence, the "cat-a-pult" was invented...

This morning when I got out of the shower and went back in the bedroom to roust my wife, I discovered our kitten pawing at the crack of the waterbed.  He's done it a few times before and been severely chastised but keeps doing it.  When I removed him from the bed I noticed some dampness on the side of the mattress.  At two holes we stopped counting and went for the hose to drain the bed.

We're not entirely certain what we're going to do about his claws, either removal or the claw covers.  But we do know that whatever action we take will start with his testicles and work out from there.

If you're going to get him de-clawed, make sure he stays an inside cat because he won't have much to defend himself if he goes outside.  As to the other thing, well, you want to get that done no matter what.  It won't be pleasant when he starts to mark his territory...

He is an indoor cat but I'm leaning towards the covers vs the de-clawing cause that's pretty serious in my estimation.  As far as neutering him, that is definitely on our agenda.  Has been since we got him.  He just wasn't old enough then.  Now he is getting to the right age.

My daughter has a friend whose mom refuses to have her pets fixed.  So she's always trying to give away litters of puppies and kittens.  Did I say she's a fruitcake?

I too have a water bed...  I hope it doesn't go the way of the dodo as well. :'(

My mom, not quite a fruitcake, loves to have puppies around so much that she started breeding Shiz Tsu's and selling them.   Had dozens of litters in the house over the years when I grew up (years ago!) and I can attest that there are very few things in life as fun as sitting on the floor and being attacked by a small pack of playful little puppies!

There's a difference between breeding and selling puppies and kittens and having animals that just reproduce and you're stuck giving them away.

I have a waterbed too. Try and find a new mattress for it...or a replacement heater. Try ! Jezz I had to buy a second hand one when my first mattress I had been using since I was 18 sprung a leak. It's not because I like the damn bed, its because there aren't any water-bed stores around anymore.

I can't sleep on anything else..ive tried.
