    LOVE all of our babies, but they definately have a few "quirks".
    Lyle: if he is the slightest bit hungry he yowls and weaves, yowls and weaves. We've stopped free range feeding, and started sceduled feedings, so there is A LOT of yowling and weaving
    Runt: loves to nibble fingers in the middle of the night. He doesn't want anything, just wants to nibble fingers
    Piggy: likes to find the highest spot available, and doesn't care what she knocks over/off to get there.
    Sky: loves to open ANY door she can get her paws on
    Beth: reaches out and "grabs" you when she wants your attention
    Lyle, Runt, and Piggy both love to "help" you write by grabbing and chewing on the end of the pen/pencil
    Phoebe(CH baby) is an angel and can do no wrong
    Too many pets? What's that?

    Storm: When he bullies his siblings. I keep telling him that we all know he's the #1 kitty around here.

    Sky: When he uses the litter box he has to keep digging and digging and then he'll keep scratching on the sides of the box or the hoods of the covered litter boxes. It makes a lot of noise.

    Pearl: When she keeps trying to jump in my lap when I'm on the toilet. I try to bend over and then sometimes she'll jump up on my back. When she wakes up early in the morning and starts howling in my bathroom which makes it echo. When she attacks poor Storm. When she has to be the center of attention at all times.

    Ziggy: When she claws at my bedskirt. When she tries to steal poor Sky's food or any other cats food. When she puts up a fight with me and gets all stressed out just because I want to brush her, trim her nails, and brush her teeth.

    All in all though they're very good cats and I love them very much.

    Oh this just makes me smile.

    I've often used the phrase "It's a good thing you are cute Nutmeg, because you are cruisin.." Nutmeg thinks it's really neat to howl in the middle of the night. She goes to a corner of the room, faces it, looks up and lets out a mightly "MROW!" I have a bachelor apartment so it's not like I can lock her out of my "bedroom" and my apartment is so old I'm always afraid that someone can hear her. It's very irritating. I've even started coming home from work and keeping her awake until bedtime by constantly talking to her and annoying her while she tries to rest!

    Tilly has the stinkiest bum ever. When I take her to the vet I always ask them to check her anal glands and while there is sometimes goop in there, it's never that bad. She just has a really rank butt! Overall though, Tilly is pretty well behaved.

    Now Nutmeg is laying on the bed, upsidedown, caramel paws up in the air and grinning at me. This is how she can get away with keeping me up all night!!

    My boys do the early-morning-clanking-the-blinds thing, too. Usually on a weekend when I DON'T have to get up. I may have to invest in new window coverings if it doesn't stop!

    Sometimes Binky won't cover up his mess in the litterbox; I don't mind pee biscuits, but when he does the "big stinky", he can clear a room in 10 seconds!

    But they're my boys and I love them!!!

    I thought the "big stinky" was a normal thing Soooo many of ours can clear a room, even when they do cover it up

    I.LOVE.MY.CATS. LOL! This one little trick of Pinot's might send me over the edge!!!

    I love reading everyone's quirky cat issues. Cats...love them, love their faults.

    I just smiled at Monte this am....and thought of some of you going through your own things.

    Short list:
    1. MITS must put me to bed and I MUST lay on my right side.
    2. LUCKY must escort me to the bath room and wait until I finish what I'm doing there.
    3. DOBE must curl under my arm pit when I go to bed, Just to tick off MITS.
    4. BOO BOO has to keep my feet warm in bed. I don't like to be too warm.
    5. PENNY & LENNY must keep my but and/or crotch warm in bed.
    6. Lucky must run from the kitchen and jump on my chest if I'm watching TV (this is done 3-5 time a night)
    7. Demeri lies on my right shoulder in the TV chair I get kisses on the nose with a few nibbles.
    8. Precious lays on my left shoulder if Demetri is on the right (can't breathe)
    9. Bart (26 lb main coon) wants to sit next to me in the TV chair (both buts too big)
    10. Mits & Lucky can't decide witch arm of the TV chair to sit on, so back and forth the whole time I'm there.
    This list could go on for several pages.
    The good thing is they all know that I do not feed in the morning, so I can get up and not be hassled. They with wait for MOM. Lenny is her alarm clock at 5:30 am.

    I used to have these on the back of my doors but when I painted I decided to take them off. I'm so glad that I did because I'd hate for my cats to do what Pinot does to you.

    I thought of a few more things. When my cats scarf and barf and they always seem to do it on the carpet or rug. When Ziggy dunks one of her toys in the water dish. The other morning she dunked a catnip mouse and it turned the water a greenish/brown color. I guess she was trying to make catnip tea.

    I do love my cats, the entire Fur Posse BUT I do get tired of finding dingleberries, usually in the dining room yet. Ugh! It's almost always from Specs b/c he has such long hair and one gets caught in his fur.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    4:30 AM, I hear what sounds like a very small gasoline lawn mower and get a blast of cat food breath. If I don't get up right away, the head bumps and sandpaper-tongue facial start. I've got an automatic feeder now, so I have NO idea why Don Juan thinks he needs me with him to have his breakfast. Sigh.

    I can relate. Ziggy has always had poor hygeine habits and when she squats to poop she usually ends up sitting in it and getting some of it caught in her fluffy pantalooms. I then smell something horrible and it's her and it's hard to catch her to clean her up but I do. She can be a very stinky girl at times.

    Don Juan, of course you need your human with you at breakfast time - it's dark at 4:30, and where is the joy of having breakfast alone in the dark?! I would love to have breakfast with you!

    Krazyaboutkatz, I thought my kitty was the only scarf and barf expert around! But on the tile, where it would be easy to clean up? Never. Cassie's rules for scarf and barf: must barf on carpet, must give meowmie apologetic look afterward, and must run and hide when meowmie approaches with Resolve and sponge.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    These are too funny!!!!

    Tinky: Is a crabby bossy thing! Whenever I brush the kitties outside it takes her two weeks to get over it and stop bullying Jupiter. It isn't like they haven't been cat siblings for almost 10 years now... I don't know WHY she does this!!!! All the hissing and growling drives me crazy!

    Jupiter: My fat happy boy... he is my alarm clock. Once 7am hits, if I am not up and feeding him he will dig in my hair and bite my hair and meow until I push him off the bed or get up.
