Ive allready come to the conclusion that im the 2nd class citizen in the house now and Thumper is the boss. Now if I could only get her to pay the morgage.
Its been so much fun having a cat for the first time and how smart and interesting they can be. Ive been amazed at the things that thumper can learn and how fast. The other thing thats quite amazing is the things that she's teaching me.
At one point I thought she was getting afraid of me since when im near the stairs she runs up to me then if I get close or try to pet her she makes her maine coon noise and runs up the stairs and hides behind the sheet at the top of the stairs. She peeks through the bottom of the sheet and stares at me. As soon as I turn to look the other way she runs down the stairs as fast as she can right to me and waits for me to touch her again. Then its the same thing all over again. Before I touch her she will stay as long as i dont make contact in a ready to run up the stairs pose untill I touch her. So id guess she's teaching me a game she likes.
I went upstairs tonight and she was on the bathroom sink so I turned the water on a little bit and she was playing with the water in the sink but her head was right under the faucet and you could tell she was wondering why the water was stopping then she would move her head and it would start dripping again. What a hoot. I cant even explain how funny it is when she plays with one of those packing peanuts ( lots of pouncing, backflips, summersaults). My cheeks still hurt from laughing so hard.
Then there is playtime with the ladybugs. One will be walking around and Thumper will cover it with her paw and since her paws are so big it will end up staying on her paw when she lifts it up. the face she makes is so funny, then it moves and she shakes her paw around to get it off. Rinse and Repeat.
