This morning I was at the computer and Taz was laying on my lap. Overhead, I could hear the kittens starting to play. They are on toy overload at the moment, and I moved a cat condo upstairs for them earlier. A really nice condo that is so lightweight you can move it fully assembled with one hand! It has an exercise pad on it, and I thought they might enjoy it. But at any rate, I was just listening and the kittens started scampering across the floor, then you didn't hear anything because they were on the unit, then back on the floor then silence.
Taz was fully awake and her nose was twitching, she jumped off my lap and I watched her as she tracked the noise, her head swiveling back and forth like she was watching a tennis match! LOL With three kittens she was having a hard time keeping track of movement. Then she started stalking the noise, and would race to one side of the living room her head riveted to the ceiling, and then back to the other side. It was so funny- almost like she was attached to them in magnetic way. Finally, she got tired of running and came over to me, put her paw on me and meowed as if to say- "Mom call the exterminator, you have a mouse problem!" My crew has not seen the kittens yet. They are upstairs and we have two chicken-wire doors, one at the foot of the stairs and one at the head. Both doors are closed right now to cut off contact. The kittens have two full rooms to romp and play in and they are doing well. Nodd (the male) is the shyest of the bunch. Blinkin, a female is the boldest and the bully. Clearly right now, she is the leader of these three.
