Actually, I can't really say that. When I can get them in front of a lens and not kissing the lens, they do take rather nice photos. Unfortunately getting them that far away from me has been near impossible. These kittens are not mere lap cats, they are chest kitties and shoulder kitties.. pretty much they want their heads with in smooching distance of your lips when ever possible.
It is cute, but it can be a little overwhelming. I went down to the kitten room this weekend to spend some time with them. I was not feeling well and thought I'd take a little nap.. yeah, that wasn't a good idea. The four of them piled up as close to my mouth as they could. Even Shortcake was sitting on my shoulder... (they are rubbing off on her which is nice) well only problem was a good part of the time they were blocking what little airway I actually had available to me.. I could only think of "Death by Purr".. Both Anubis and Victor are smooch-addicted. They both reach up and pat my face and present their heads for kisses.. Victor has much better manners about the whole thing. If you aren't kissing Anubis to her liking she'll nibble you. At least we are down to nibble and not out and out biting. Owen is the third most interested in getting smooched, then Clyve, who is often found off playing with Shortcake.
Shortcake has voluntarily climbed up on my lap and now lets me pat her. I really preferred to call her Lani, but she was looking to get into mischief and I called out to her and she responded to Shortcake, so Shortcake it is..
|Clyve - being "naughty". |
He got up on top of the cage all on his own and was sitting in the carrier because he could.
