Molly the Cat

Twinkie seems to enjoy rubbing against my arm with her forehead. Obviously, this is very endearing behavior. Each time she does it I cannot help but say, “Awwwwww.” It can be troublesome when her tail flicks across my field of vision, blocking the view of the TV, or when she rubs my hand while I’m attempting to type on the laptop. It’s okay though. Lately I find myself rubbing her back with my own forehead. She just loves that. It must be an odd, amusing sight to see Twinkie and I rubbing each other with our foreheads.

Update: I located the mouse. It was tangled up in some wires under the TV.

It is now just barely 12 hours later, and the krinkly purple mouse has been lost.

AVG understands how much I love my cats. She kindly gave me a green baggie full of cat-toys, as cat-Christmas presents, knowing that I’d enjoy introducing the girls to new playthings. Tonight I tossed the first of these to Molly, who had seemed bored. It is a small purple mouse made of some sort of metallic foil that makes wonderful krinkly noises when it’s squished, thrown or bitten.

Needless to say, Molly is in love with the krinkle mouse, and indeed, Twinkie took a strong interest as well. I witnessed a rather tense moment in which both cats went for the mouse at the same time. They nearly bonked heads. Molly got to it first, and was obliged to smack Twinkie to keep her away from the bounty. The elder cat was pissed, but backed off. She jumped onto the couch to sulk and pretended not to watch Molly playing.

Molly has eaten her last morsel of kitten food. After one year of munching on that stuff, her teeth have hardened and she’s grown nearly to full size. The Iams Company recommends that cats eat only kitten-formulated food during the first twelve months, and who am I to reject Iams doctrine? Anyway, now both cats eat the same grub, which is good because simplicity is good.

I don’t think Molly noticed the transition, as I was so clever about it. I mixed the kitten and cat food in her bowl for a couple of weeks so that she would become accustomed. Molly was thus never unjustly surprised by what she found in her food dish. And, for sure, she is still excited about eating.
