Better Late Than Never Weekend Cat Blogging…

And so it is that I am late for this weekend’s edition of Cat Blogging.

I was so busy yesterday preparing a feast of Indian food (and yes, yes, there will be posts all about that soon) to celebrate the return home of Heather from her sojourn in Beirut, and my daughter Morganna, that I forgot completely that I should be posting wonderful kitty pictures here for everyone to see.

How neglectful of me. How wretched, evil and awful.

Especially since we have a new member to our household.


Morganna has a kitten. His name is Indrid, and he came from a cat rescue association in Columbus, Ohio. He is half Siamese and half tabby/white domestic shorthair, and all cuteness.

As you can see.
Here he is sleeping in his bed, which is a shoebox with a towel and some of Morganna’s old t-shirts and a teddy bear. And yes, he sleeps in it of his own volition, and cuddles with the bear. It is kind of gross, he is so cute.

He is twelve weeks old, and has already captured Gummitch’s heart, and is well on his way to getting Grimalkin’s, too. Minna, well, for her, she is well-behaved and is showing great curiosity and fortitute. Ozy–he’s seen so many kittens in his time, nothing startles him anymore. Neither Jack nor Tristan have met him yet, so they are without opinion on the issue.

Of course, Morganna and Zak and I are charmed.

I guess we will never lack for photogenic cats in this family.

What I find to be really adorable about this guy is that he will fight sleep. He will crawl up into his bed, and curl into a ball, and then his eyes will close, and suddenly, he will wiggle, and roll, like you see over there on the right, and bat at nothing, just to wake himself up.

Just like a toddler who doesn’t want to go to bed, because he might miss something interesting that the adults are doing.

  1. Aw, so cute. I love new kittens and this one is really like a baby from what you describe.

  2. He’s adorable! I hope he got the moggy catcry rather than the Siamese though. ;-D

    BTW, I did the recipe you gave me last night. Loved it! I wrote it up on my blog. 🙂

  4. Hey, Boo, Christina and Dagmar–

    Boo–he is a terribly adorable little babycat, and very good-natured. Christina–no dice on the moggy cry. He’s got the Siamese vocal chords for certain. Which is okay–I grew up with my mother’s ‘Mese, so to me, that call is as familiar as a lullabye. Dagmar–I hope I can get some better pictures to capture the wonderful gradations of color in his fur as his points change.

  5. When our cat, Jeremiah, was a kitten, he used to hate to sleep, too. He’d keep going and going and going until he literally just fell over asleep. Funniest darn thing ever.

  6. Indrid is now free to roam the house all day, now that he can climb stairs, so I doubt he will sleep much until nighttime, when he is back in Morganna’s room. Too much to do and explore and too many other cats to play with.
