It was after we had spent several days referring to the kitten (whom we are almost-sure-is-a-girl) as Smelly Cat (actual name: Zelda) that Z and I decided to remedy this situation.

So, here's Nina's guide on How To Make Your Cat Indignant In Five Easy Steps:

1. Pour water into bath.

2. Pour kitten into water, while ignoring its protests and attempts to hang onto your skin for dear life.

3. Once kitten has surrendered to helplessness, wet it thoroughly and then shampoo with Pantene Classic Care.

4. Rinse.

5. Lift out of the bath, and set down upon the floor where its indignance may bloom into its full glory.


Z, rubbing his face against the kitten's fur: MMmmmmmm, you smell like girls' hair.


Sometime during the weekend that we were away in Cornwall First Cat and New Cat quit hissing at each other and now First Cat treats New Cat as a mix of Playmate and Personal Love Slave. In fact, First Cat seems entirely to have abandoned his hot gay hanky-panky with the neighberhood tom and has in turn morphed into a big paedophile who watches Kitten with a lustful eye and expends considerable energy into grooming her to be his concubine. Currently his filthy plans are doomed to failure seeing how thanks to eating Kitten-deisgnated food he has almost doubled in size and she is still small enough to walk underneath him and slip out between his legs (incidentally, also Kitten's strategy of Getting To The Food First).

And while First Cat occupies himself by keeping a proprietory eye on Zelda and courting her with single-mindedness of purpose, if not grace- the cat/human relationships appear to be getting better all the time. First Cat has forgiven me for the arrival of New Kitten and permits himself to be petter once more and Kitten has taken to curling up next to my head every night (that is-when she's not mounting an offensive against toes and household plants*). In fact, she's taken to waking me up by nestling against my neck and licking my ear - a thing sweet, dirty and ticklish in about equal parts.

The Kitten's other trick is to stand on my shoulder while I'm sitting at the computer, and rub her head against my cheek purring in my ear. This is a cunning plan to distract me from the knowledge that she spends her non-sucking-up time shredding my fingertips.

And for purely gratuitous purposes:

Cats resting

Cats hatching cunning plans

* Her passion for these is only equalled by her devotion to attacking First Cat's tail, which he is going through increasingly elaborate strategies to avoid.

it's a sort of little red ridinghood big bad wolf scenario
Yes, he's turning into a regular old perv....
I keep telling him that she's just a little girl, but it doesn't seem to be having much effect.

I hope these pictures provide you with more conviction about Why Ewan Ought To Have Cats.

Don't tell anyone but the wet cat is hilarious.

I feel in the absence of human children I should at least humiliate the pets.
