Fun w/pets preparing for baby speak
A few bloggers have written about preparing their fur babies for the arrival of a baby. I got to thinking about my cats.
I have a black cat (onyx) that is persnickety as all get out. She only loves me - but she only loves me when She decides to. She absolutely hates E. He has done nothing to her, but her hate is strong. She is smart and totally understands the English language. We have had her the longest.
I also have a grey tiger. (sterling) She is fun loving and sweet. She is a pretty lil thing. She loves us both. Only problem, She is so dumb and dopey.
So they were both in the room with us Friday night and we loaded up a few good videos from thattube site and turned up the laptop speakers. I figured they'd both freak out like they do when someone comes over. They run and hide for hours. Nope - Onyx turned her ears back and gave me the "annoyed kitty" look a few times. "Like Dude, the TV is too loud." Then she got pissed off and pranced out of the room. Sterling, on the other hand, was intrigued. She was sniffing the laptop looking back and forth and E and I. Then we got to a crying baby. Her motherly instincts kicked in or something. She wanted to save the laptop. She looked and looked for the crying baby and was in distress and was trying to tell us that there was something going on. She would look back and forth at us like "Fix it. Make it ok." She was patting the laptop and looking around the room.
I honestly assumed they would both pull the annoyed card and move on. But to see sterling get all interested, it was sweet and alarming. She still has her claws ... that may have to change. All in all a fun and entertaining exercise.
I was looking at pictures of progression last night and look what I found. These are 10 weeks apart.
