Billy is entering the kitten monster stage

Billy White Shoes is starting to enter the kitten monster stage.  In the last couple days he has knocked over my water glass twice, drunk from it three times that I caught him, and pushed my track ball off the computer table five or six times, just so he could watch the ball roll around the floor.  That doesn't count all the things I find on the floor when I get up in the morning.

He's also has taken over the top perch in the cat tree.

Billy and Grace O'Malley still play together, but I seldom see them cuddling together when they sleep.  Billy keeps trying to play with Anne Bonny, but Annie just swats him until he runs off.


The obligatory Billy photos -


Billy still fits under the keyboard tray, if he works at it.  It's hard to remember that not too long ago, he could just walk under there, and didn't even have to duck very much.

A rare photo of Grace O'Malley not trying to grab the camera strap.

yep - this is the point where you pull out the "tiny" kitten pictures to remind you that he wasn't always "bad"..... those teenage times are even tough for kittens. :)

Our mom says that's why God makes kittens so cute...you can't get mad at them for being bad.

I know it can be frustrating and trying, but I LOVE the "kitten monster stage!" Nothing is off limits and sometimes it is impossible not to laugh at their naughty antics!!

When Tweedle was small she fit easily on my chest under my chin. I remember as she was growing she fit less and less easily until the day when she no longer really fit and she looked at me with such sadness that I changed my chest so it no longer fit her :) (yes, Twee isn't the brightest bulb in the bunch)

Billy just brings smiles to my face. Give him a few extra kisses for me.

Thank you so much for your kind words and the comment you left on my blog last week about my human sis in the hospital. Last week she was in serious condition and thanks to all the prayers, she might be coming home tomorrow.

Hahaha The Khenay always is with this guy that is going to attack someone. But it is sweet! Just Gave Me work When we arrived at my house. For a month I was full of scratches. = /
But now it's only love. ^ ^ I know of not to sleep without it in my head.

Billy is a wonderful cat! Got a great place to sleep. (laughs)
The problem is when they hide so well that we no longer feel. = D I'm always desperate!

It is really hard to get mad at the kittens. We have one here that is always in trouble. Her name is Two Two so we understand. Billy really has grown a bunch. I can't believe he can still get under that keyboard tray. Too cute. Take care.

Billy is so cute! And of course, we love grey kittens (Franklin still is one - even though he's 7!) Grace is beautiful too.

We also wanted to thank you very much for wishing us a happy birthday (our humans FORGOT our birthday so thanks!) - we are all doing well and our mom even just posted to say hi.

Rascal & Riley didn't get out of the Kitten Monster stage till they were 4! Sounds like Billy enjoys a good game of "does it break, or does it bounce?" as much as Rascal did. :) (Our little rescue kitten has gone to his forever home now. We'll post about him in a day or two.)

Billy White Shoes is a boy kitten after my own heart. The world is his--so pull that seat belt a little tighter, Billy White Shoes is at the wheel!
