She's humming like an Evinrude...apparently she likes it.

It's because cats are weird.

Yesterday Monkey and I built a shelf. It is one of those wooden 13" cubes and this one has three horizontal shelves for paper and two half vertical dividers. I made up the cube and she jumped in as I was screwing the top on.

I slid the first divider in and she moved over, same with the second and third. As I put the first half-wall in she was pretty well scrunched in as much as she could be. I tried to put the last piece in and she just sat there willing me to just try and get her to vacate the premises.

But I then turned on her laser beam and all resolve went out the window as she worshiped the little red dot!

What's the difference between people and cats?

Cats like noogies.

Yup. They do.

I swear that Monkey wakes me up just to give her a noogie. If I am in my chair on a bad night she will jump on my lap and nudge my chin with the top of her head. when I take my hand and scratch her there, she sits and enjoys it then jumps down and goes back into her "fort" to sleep.

Thanks cat, now I'm awake!

I really do love my cat, honest.

Aww, I love the kitty stories. LP, the shelves you put together sound nice. My kitty loves to insert himself in any projects I've got going on, too.

One or two of you may remember that my Blackee was bitten by another cat last month and had to have surgery. Almost all of his fur has grown back, and he is doing great! I couldn't find the original post, I could have sworn I put it here in this thread.

Cheryl, I am so glad Blackee is doing better. I do remember his ordeal. It is as traumatic for us as it is for them when they are in distress.

Monkey was a surprise addition to our family and while her kitten antics are sometimes wearing on our 10 year old dog, Violet, and us, she is a breath of fresh air as well.

Speaking of her, she just came into my office, jumped up, said hi and is now curled up in the middle of Violet's big bed. It is so funny to see this little black fur ball in the middle of a four by four foot dog bed!

I don't know who likes the night time ritual of noogies more, me or Latté. I lay in proper cat bed position, she gets comfy and I fall asleep during the scritches, while she hums away.

You guys keep equating scritches and noogies. Do you mean the same kind of noogies that I mean, like Three Stooges noogies? I mean the ones where you use a knuckle to rub hard on the top of the head or on the forehead. You know, the kind that people hate and I think they hurt.

Latté appreciates either...of course, I don't do noogies hard, I like my hands on the ends of my arms.
