Practical Cats

It's no coincidence that "kitten" rhymes with "smitten."

Or "bitten," actually, come to think of it.

But this kitten is very considerate: when she's in feisty mode, she holds back a little with the teeth and claws, so she's more tickly than scratchy. And when she is in non-feisty mode? Ooooh! Ooooooooooohhhhhhh!

Actually, I don't know when I've ever seen a young kitten sleep quite so soundly. She definitely prefers to be on or near you; last night I woke up several times to find her settling comfortably down on my face and neck. She stretches in her sleep, gives a subdued little "mew" and purrs for a few moments when you kiss her little nosey.

For a fairly nondescript-looking brown-and-gray kitty with only a stumpy tail, she really is just the most adorable tiny little thing I ever did see. And look! She even does your taxes!
