I SWEAR, I think Sox and my Spike are "soul brothers"---They come from the EXACT same mold!!! NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING! scares Spike!! He was so teeny tiny when I got him (4 weeks old and was being bottle fed by me) DH wanted (insisted!) his name was Spike--which was HILLARIOUS at that time, as he was just so frail and tiny!
--Well, let me tell ya, he is growing into his name very nicely!!! My other kitty is a quite timid full grown cat. I THOUGHT she was mischievious as a kitten (her name is Miss Mischief--Missy for short). But after having Spike--WOW!! She is an angel
compared to him!!!! And when he gets something into his head, there is NO deterring him from his goal!!! I do keep him in the basement at night, and Missy stays upstairs, so she can at least have some "quiet time"--and us too!! He did meow pitifully, at the basement door when I started putting him down there, but it is warm and comfortable there. He has a big dish of food and water too, and a kitty bed, and a lambswool sitting on top of that! So, the meowing lasted about a week or so, then stopped. I put a fan, on high, in our bedroom and we did not hear him and all the ruckus he made for that time frame! It is so nice to get a night's sleep, and understanding what kind of cat you have, it would be almost impossible to do this with him lying (read: jumping, cavorting around etc....) next to you!!!
P.S. Spike often spends the night, going around and turning the lights on/off in the basement, for his own enjoyment. YUP!!! We have those pullcords on the ceiling lights, and he jumps WAY up, grabs the very end of them --and yanks them to turn them on and off!!! My DH's nurse told me I should get a video of him doing that and send it in to get $10,000 for the best video (only thing is, I HATE those shows!!!
