What the kittens have taught me


The arrival of two rambunctious kittens has turned my life upside-down, although it was already pretty upside-down, so I think they’ve actually returned it to something resembling right-side-up.

Observing them carefully for the last week has given me a whole new way of looking at the world. Here are a few of the things the kittens have taught me:

  • There’s almost nothing that can’t be eaten, played with, or slept on.
  • Just because you couldn’t climb something yesterday, that doesn’t mean you won’t able to climb it today.
  • You never know when someone’s going to sneak up behind you and pounce on your head; but when they do, it will turn out to be your sibling, and you will enjoy wrestling with them.
  • When you sleep, sleep like your life depends on it, preferably sprawled across whoever happens to be in the vicinity.
  • Everybody likes you, and if they don’t, there’s something wrong with them.

    here’s a little synchronicity, by way of guest blogger JNelsonW at thepoorman dot net:

    “But listen people, here’s something that’s not so funny: Kitten addiction. I’ve seen the best minds of my generation destroyed by the insidious siren song of feline youth.”
    not that there’s anything wrong with letting kittens destroy your mind….

    I prefer to think of it as “reorganization” rather than “destruction.”

    I have heard that quite often: If the others don’t like you, then its their problem. Something is wrong with them because they don’t like you. BUT, what if I don’t like somebody, is it then my problem? I wonder, if anybody has an answer to that.
