LOL! She is turning out to have THE SWEETEST personality!!! She's really getting coordinated now, and she zips around here pouncing on everything. Gary's training her to sit on his shoulder, and he'll put her up on one shoulder... and she'll creep around the back of his neck over to the other side. It is sooooo cute!!! We're training her not to bite our hands or ankles, and of course, like all kittens it is so hard for her to resist! I'm quite sure she knows she's not supposed to, but she tries to sneak up on us....
This morning we woke up early to feed her, and we let her out of the bathroom since we weren't going anywhere. I came out to the living room to get working (even though it was only about 6:00)...and Gary fell back asleep. (Poor guy, he's had so many trips into the city that start early and end late recently). I heard a yelp - and went running. But it wasn't MaeMae - it was Gary! She'd climbed up onto the bed (which is getting easier and easier for her to do without getting her little claws caught in the material)...walked up to him and nipped his nose! "Wake up daddy, I want to play!"
We had to go schmooze customers this past weekend. Gary always puts on a great BBQ.... but we didn't want to leave her alone here all day. So we took her with us. We took along a big dog crate, with her oyster-shell bed, snuggle kitty, water, litterbox... and she was such a trooper! Poor thing did get car sick the first drive of the first day, but she wasn't scared of new people or the children at all. She was romping around in the bedrooms made available to her (we made sure they were kitten proof) - her little tail sticking straight up in the air! She appeared to love exploring each new place.
For all the little girl's been through, we are so thankful that she's so outgoing and peaceful. She has every reason in the world to be terrified of people and new places, and she just so isn't. She's sweet and loving and totally trustful. I don't think we can part with her. Unfortunately, we can't afford the rent of a house we'd want to live in around here... and Gary and I are pretty attached to our mobile lifestyle... so I guess we'll be on the market soon for a larger RV!
She loves being cuddled, and she loves lying in the crook of our arms on her back, paddling all of her feet in the air - to play with the straw or mouse or whatever it is. We both totally delight in her antics - but isn't that true of any kitten? LOL!
The fur is starting to grow in on her little nose that was so caked with food and dirt... and she's growing like a weed! I always forget how quickly they grow up.
I've got a few new pics, but I haven't downloaded them to the PC yet. I'll go do that now, although I don't know if I'll be able to post them tonight or if it'll have to wait until tomorrow.
Thanks for asking!!!!
