Okay, okay… A random cat finds you, you think it may be lost and you give it the freedom to return to “home”,only “home” is now your house and she gets all prego… whaddaydo?
Watch life begin, of course.
The last 12 weeks have been brutal… for me. Separations; mom wanting space, bigger poops in the litter box, everyone eating me out of house and home but ultimately jealousy. Let me tell you about my late affection.
Little Rascal (now known as Khajiit) is one of the two calico’s from my tiny fur tribe. She was the last one to offer me her sweetness. When she finally gave forth, it was precious beyond words… but our beginnings were not so kosher.
In my observation Itty Bitty and Khajiit were in cat-hoots. They like a bit of that bite and claw action. If someone was biting at my toes, it was that Lil Rascal Khajiit. In the beginning there was minimal holding and reluctance to kiss; week 11 when Peanut Buddy (now Otto) left, the tides shifted. Lil Miss shifted from “battle bro” to “cuddle now.” I had no complaints. She jumped on the kissy train and settled down a bit.
Of course this begs the question of sibling dynamics, even in the animal world. Catland was now fully saturated with females and one male, Big Boy . Big Boy calmed down at least five fold without Peanut Buddy offering some male petition. Khajiit was in second place when it came to strength, size and agility without harassing Momma. The Game was on.
Khajiit seemed to desire some self definition right away; she was a middle baby and despite her distinction in the looks department, her evasive nature made her hard to pin down or in human terms “force love upon”. She seemed astute and willing to sit on the sidelines in order to form her own opinions. I regret to say that more than once she was at the mercy of my clumsy nature around fast moving objects (namely my clumsy ass feet). I definitely stepped on her tail more than once but always apologized and gave love afterward. At one point I asked myself why it was always her that was at the mercy of my lack of grace…. obviously she came to grips with it because when she decided to love, it was super obvious.
All of sudden she wants to cuddle, FIRST! Everyone else is running around like an idiot and she is like “Nah, I’m gonna grab that sweet warm spot behind the shaggy fat persons legs.” History is made! But Her Story is just beginning.
Jenny and Seneca wanted a kittery. They NEEDed a kittery; my house is like a cat drug den… who will fall victim? After Otto left, I let them all know ‘Some one is waiting for you, and they can’t wait to show you a whole new world.” Before Jenny came over to meet and greet, I told them “It’s equal opportunity, but I have my feelings.” For some reason I knew LIL would make her mark in the introductory love department, and she did not disappoint.
Jenny came over for a meet and greet with a nature so gentle, I am sure all of them were surprised. That nature is just what Lil needed if only to give them a run for their money. Jenny wants to toilet train and walk on a leash and that is exactly the kind of world exposure newly named Khajiit needs. A whole new world of love and adventure. Independence and dependence with the perfect balance of personality.
Khajiit is currently causing a riff of jealousy with her kin; within 48 hours of being in her new home she was given the opportunity to star in a music video from SunnyDale High, Seneca’s rad Wyoming band that thematically follows Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Khajiit is going to be a hit.
You should definitely check out her acting debut with a great soundtrack by Seneca’s band. Also you should definitely check out Sunnydale High when they play WARPED Tour this summer in Denver, if you do, you should tell them “Khajiit sent you.”
May all my kitteries rock and find their love-home dreams come true.

May the Meows be with you, Lord Kittery knows we all could use it right now.
