So, Kitty has gotten really funny lately.  I think he was just sick our first week, so he mostly slept, but not he is a playing maniac.  It's hilarious to watch!  Instead of describing it, I'll just show you.  These video obviously doesn't catch his hilarity perfectly, but they're a good taste of it.  I still need to catch his pounce, then bounce away sideways move and how he bats the aluminum foil ball around the house like a champion soccer player, but for now, these will have to do.  Also, sorry for the bad video quality and the fact that usually the cat is kind of in the background.  I don't have a real video camera, so I'm using photo booth and I can't stick it right next to him or he gets nervous.



And, of course, some photos:

Also, we've come up with some name options, but none have stuck yet.  Here are some we've come up with:

Asparagus (Gus for short), Physysics (joke from the show "Psych," and pronounced Fiz-EYE-sicks),

 Mendelssohn (like, there's Felix the cat, and there's Felix Mendelssohn, the composer), Filbert (Philly for short, for obvious reasons), Dumbledore (though we'd rather not call him "Dumb" for short), Hugh, and some cool soccer player's name because he's so talented with batting the ball around.  Tom's nieces and nephews also came up with Catsford.  Thoughts, suggestions?

By the way, kitty is currently falling asleep right next to me as I type this.  All that backpack attacking tuckered him out.


  1. Oh, I have the feeling you'll decide on just the right name. Not a cat person myself so I will not attempt to choose. My best friend in Seattle is a total cat person and always comes up with the most clever names.
