At this moment I am having some difficulty reaching the keyboard as I have a cat on my lap. Her name is Kush and she belongs to my son, Marc. Marc has moved home from Victoria for a while before he heads for Australia. I mentioned earlier that I didn’t want any cats at our house, since my daughters are both allergic. But things just don’t always work out as planned, and Marc and Kush have been here for a few weeks. When they first arrived I was very upset because the cat was not at all friendly. At least I don’t think it’s very friendly to scratch and hiss at anyone who approaches. Apparently I was not the only one who was upset. Kush was not happy with having been trapped in a vehicle for 2 days while being uprooted from her home.
Kush is fascinated by running water. She loves to get into the shower where I can turn on the water for just a few seconds and she can chase the water to the drain. She sits and stares at various parts of the shower – the faucet, the tap or the drain. Sometimes she won’t get out of the shower until it is on full stream from overhead. Then she daintily steps outside and sits watching the water from the shower doorway or the bathroom counter.
For exercise, Kush will chase the red dot of a laser pointer for as long as a human is willing to point it around for her. She charges up and down a flight of stairs and from room to room. Our house has a large open plan area that is perfect for this game. It’s hard to tell who enjoys it the most – cat or human. No kidding.
Sorry – there is no end to the cuteness of this cat.
