So we're doing this now?

Warning: cat post.  I'm sorry.  I can't help myself. I'll understand if you want to close out the window and we'll just meet up again tomorrow.

Cookie the wonder cat is settling into our house nicely.  She's a little, um, different (much more prone to wild animal behavior, which is probably a result of her pre-car engine ride life) but she is sweet and she's entirely bonded to Twinkle.

The two of them are spending most of the day lounging around and staring out windows.  Seems like a pretty good existence, until the occasional day when temps reach over 100 degrees and then they have to act like they just might die.

Lately, though, I'm beginning to see through the ruse of the serene kitten act.

For one, Twinkle is weirdly obsessed with having her stomach rubbed.  All we have to do is look at her and she wil drop to the floor and stretch out, demanding.  When E comes home she comes to the front door to greet him with her ever-growing belly.

And last night, just as I was about to fall asleep I heard a ticking against the screen door.  The curtains were closed but the door was open to the screen, so I pulled the drapes back to see what was up.  I was a bit hunched over and I didn't see anything happening on the floor near the screen (where Cookie usually hangs out).  I started to wonder if there was a cat outside, so I flipped on the light.  Nothing.  Then I stepped back to turn around and my eyes found one little Cookie monster all the way at the top of the screen, hanging on for dear life.

I couldn't grab a camera fast enough, but lucky for me she repeated the pose this morning as she chased a fly up the front window.



  1. Thanks for the laugh! I needed it today :)

  2. My cat climbs screen doors and windows when he thinks we aren't looking. He ruined one screen window to the point we had to replace it before we moved. Jerk.

    I like the cat posts. Keep 'em coming!

  3. Oh how adorable! That made me laugh and smile!
