Arrival Story: Someone my mom works with sister had a cat who had a litter.(she was unsure who the father of the litter was) We watched Kanga's brother(Wally) for a few days because the woman who adopted him said he wouldn't stop crying. He went home the friday before Easter. On Easter day, the guy my mom works with brought the rest of the litter(which was just Kanga because his sister was keeping the largest of the litter). We brought him home and he was to stay in my brothers room because Tank doesn't like other cats that much. My grandparents didn't want a kitten(their 20 year old cat was still alive at the time) so my father let us keep him.
Bio: He loves to play with anything that moves. He'll purr when he's happy but it is very quiet. He loves to be around people, but he doesn't like his face to be pet; just his back. He can be very skittish.
The humans got very angry at me yesterday! I jumped onto the couch and one of my humans started telling me how cute I was. That only lasted about two seconds, because by then he had realized I was clawing the keys on the laptop out! It took mom a good half hour to get them all in(apparently it's harder to get laptop keys in than the regular computer ones).
This wasn't the first "bad" thing I've done in the past 3-ish months. I also jumped onto the table, slid, and knocked grandma's favorite bowl on the floor(where it broke into about 20 pieces). And then, later on, I was watching birds eating off a feeder on our window(our Kitty TV as grandma calls it) and pounced on the curtain rod(landing on it and bending the middle of it).
Mom found a weird sore on my mouth yesterday, and when they checked the other side it was fine, but there were red bumps on my chin. Grandma said it could be acne(the bumps, she doesn't know what the sore was), but she decided that we should just wait until the next day(today) to see if it got any better. Mom looked at me this morning, it looked the same as yesterday and she told Grandma. Grandma just looked at me a few minutes ago and I have a bald spot by my chin area, but out of sight when I sit regularly. Grandma says it could be ringworms, but she doesn't really think so. She hasn't seen me scratch at it.
She thinks the sore on my mouth could be because I like to chew on plastic(like the stuff that holds a a case of water bottles together). Mom is going to take me next door tomorrow to have the vet look at the bald spot.
