Molly the Cat

Molly experienced a confusion of purpose today. The question arose: what to do with the proffered yogurt-covered raisin? Molly alternately nibbled it (it tastes nice!) and kicked it (it is a fun toy!). Seemingly, here was an object that could have divergent uses, a concept that Molly found odd. She looked at me for guidance. As a distraction, I gave her my empty glass so that she could lick the condensation off it.

Every so often I walk around holding the sprayer bottle and carefully wet my plants’ leaves with water. Molly follows me and licks all that water off right away.

I love hilarity. My car is parked just outside and below the living room window. Its windshield is angled such that the noonday sun hits it and is reflected up onto my living room ceiling. Now the thing to note is that Molly has a frantic obsession with light of all sorts. My laser toy causes quite a bit of insanity when I pick it up and point it at objects. But Molly also loves light reflections from cars, mirrors, CD cases, and other reflective whatnots, these usually sitting in sunshine and reflecting onto the ceiling, frustratingly. I think much of Molly’s interest in these light reflections stems from their absolute and utter inaccessibility, for try as she might her kitten muscles cannot propel her 8 feet up to the ceiling. If it was physically possible, obviously that would be a sight to behold. I can imagine a small kitten pouncing and flinging herself all around the room, defying gravity.
