Our new boys, Zane and Cooper, have proven to be not only a heck of a lot of fun and love but, in Zane’s case particularly, proof that stubborn exists in all species. In fact, when Zane’s foster mom handed him over she gave him a hug and a kiss and then told my wife “Good luck, you’ll need it.”
She was right too. Zane gets into enough trouble for at least five cats and when caught does he show any remorse? Not one bit. In fact, if anything he just makes a mental note about not getting caught the next time.
Cooper on the other hand is the good little mama’s boy. He likes to curl up with the wife and purr. Most of the trouble he gets in is because he will follow and join Zane in whatever mischief is brewing. Only the fact that he is about half Zane’s size keeps him from causing as much trouble as his big brother does.
The funniest thing though is Cooper’s favorite toy – a cube of ice. Cooper discovered how fun they were when a cube bounced out of the ice dispenser while I was filling a glass. As soon as it hit the floor he pounced on it only to have it go flying away from him, and that began the grand game of Cooper sliding across the floor to get the ice cube, and it sliding away from him and Zane will join in too. It’s like a game of kitten ice hockey
Now, any time put a glass in to get some ice I get two tiny faces staring up at the ice dispenser waiting for that small bit of frozen joy to come out.
