Pets: Bitty and Marie

posted by Robin on 09/25/2010 at 8:00 p.m. Pacific

This time Bitty hopped right on the couch as soon as she saw me, so I knew to spend some time just sitting with her before fixing her food. She purred and purred! She has turned into the cuddliest little kitty. Then we played with her feather toy until she was finally ready to rest and let me feed her hungry sister, who was waiting not-too-patiently at the back door. Quick chores, food for fish and gerbils, then back to the couch with Bitty - she just soaks up the love. She'll be so happy to have her people back - but she has certainly made us temporary replacements feel welcome!

Bitty was right there to greet me when I came in the front door, and I could hear Marie at the back door asking for dinner! Bitty followed me while I did all of the chores and didn't show much interest in her own food, so I thought she wanted to play, and I hurried to get everything done. Turns out she only wanted to sit in my lap and purr like crazy! She is the sweetest thing. I discovered the kitty treats on the coffee table right before I left and gave her a couple - she carefully carried each one a few steps away from me to enjoy chomping on it, so that I couldn't steal it from her. Everyone is doing just fine!

Today Bitty wanted to play! She jumped up on the bookshelf while I fed the gerbils, then followed me as I did the chores until I was finally ready to take down a few toys. She especially loved catching the wild feather-on-a-string and holding it under her paw. After playing for 10 minutes or so, she jumped up in my lap for pets, but then sprang down and attacked the feather toy again! She purred the whole time. Meanwhile out back, Marie make short work of dinner--she licked her plate clean. I told Bitty she was going to have fun with Robin tomorrow, and I gave her a few scratches before my reluctant goodbye.

Bitty was extra friendly today! When I think back to when I first visited her and she was so shy, it's really rewarding to have her run up to me and ask to be petted. Bitty watched while I made her dinner (meanwhile Marie was at the back door singing loudly for her own supper), then ate for a while, then jumped up next to me while I fed the gerbils. From the gerbils it was only a few short steps to the couch, where Bitty sat in my lap and purred. Such a sweet girl.
