Oh god, not again

Since the kittens arrived, she's been the one who has been willing to come out and explore and play when I'm around. She's the one who was willing to attack the red bug and chase it around the room. She's the first one who was willing to come sit next to me and eat.

For the last couple of days, I've been sitting with them while they ate, and moving the food bowl closer to me each time. It didn't take long until they would both sit right next to me and eat, and I could even get away with petting them while they ate. As soon as they were done eating, though, that was it for the big scary person hand.

Tonight I managed to get him to pay attention to the red bug for a little bit. Not much, but a little.

And then, as I was about to leave the room, I decided to reach my hand down and see what he would do. Much to my surprise, he leaned into it and asked me to pet him. We had a good five to ten minutes of petting, with him even rolling over on his back so I could rub his belly, and licked my fingers briefly. Wow! Since he always hides when I come in, I was not expecting that turn of events.

She's still feeling me out, but she's starting to sniff at me and not run away quite so much.

Progress!


And I promise that I'll stop being the crazy cat blogger lady as soon as I've made friends with both of them.

An easier lyrics quiz

This one has a theme, and I guarantee it's less obscure than the last one. If anyone gets through this and can't at least tell me what the theme is, I'll have to stomp my foot or roll my eyes or something.

1. She said that living with me,
Is bringing her down yeah,
For she would never be free when I was around.

2. She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh,
I told her I didn't, and crawled off to sleep in the bath.

3. All these places had their moments,
With lovers and friends I still can recall,

4. Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me.

5. I'm filling in the cracks that ran through the door
And kept my mind from wandering

6. Working for peanuts is all very fine,
But I can show you a better time.

7. Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.

8. And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree

9. Don't you think the joker laughs at you?

10. Now my advice for those who die,
Declare the pennies on your eyes,
