Kittenmonsteritus is spreading

Billy White Shoes is getting more like he is than he's ever been before. or something

He likes catching cicadas.  So far he's carried four or five of them into the house.  He chases them around for a while.  Eventually they quit making noise, then Billy gets bored and wanders off.  (if they're still alive at this point, I put them back outside)

He's unrolled two rolls of toilet paper.

He's decided it is kind of fun to take a running start and jump up on my back.  Sometimes, this is a first step to getting someplace else higher, sometimes he just hangs on for a while, then jumps down and runs off.

It looks like kitten-monster-itus is spreading.  A few minutes ago, Grace O'Malley hopped up on the table along side of me, and happily destroyed a roll of paper towels I keep around for general cleanup.

Someone, not sure who, caught a live chipmunk and left it in the middle of the living room floor.  I didn't know it was alive until I bent down to pick it up.  At that point, the chippy bounced back to live and ran under some furniture.  I never saw it again, so I can only hope it found its way back outside.

Billy, then and now, for comparison.  Maybe a little bit as a reminder.



Billy, about the second week here.

Billy, now.  Same hand, for comparison purposes.

Wow Billy! Are you ever growing up fast! You look quite large for only four months, and you certainly are a verrrrrrrrrrrry busy boy. But then if you can't be a monster when you're a kitten, when can you be -- so live it up while you can!

Billy is so adorable :)

Wow Billy has gotten so big and handsome.
Pops says a kitty he knows, Moo, loves to bring cicadas into the house too. She sits there with a satisfied look while they buzz away in her mouth. Meow.

I say to Scooter sometimes, "Oh, I remember when you were the size of your head!!"
And he looks at me with a sigh, and I'm sure he's thinking "Oh here she goes again...."

BWS sounds fun. I once had a cat who would sit on top of the door. I know it's only an inch thick, but she did it. Funny, I can't remember how she got up there...

Billy is a fine young mancat, and so handsome too.

Thank you for the condolences on the loss of my mother. Its a comfort to know so many kind people. The manner of her passing and the support from all our friends really helped make this a little more bearable. Thank you and take care.

Awww, I remember going through that phase, he'll get through it! But he is learning some neat tricks along the way!!

Adorable! Simply adorable!!! I remember when my cat was about 5 months old kitten I was wonderingwhat kind of a BEAST he had turned in to. Always up to no good,but luckily he soon turned into a mellow felino! Patience!!! And keep up the good work!
