'Cause they are (kittens) little turds!!!!!!! LOL! That is what I call mine when they do something bad, playfully of course-in fact it helps me from being mad at them, after I call a cat a turd, I usually start laughing at myself...
*Me walking down the hall* Cody walks in front of me, makes me trip... What do I do? "Cody, you turd, MOVE!" Then I crack up, pet him on the head to let him know that it's ok, that he didn't do anything wrong (even if he DID) Every cat owner knows, if you trip over a cat, YOU are the one in the way, DUH!
Yes, I am totally nuts. =)
