My Cat Freaked Out « Cat Blogging »

Live long enough, they say, and you'll eventually see everything. Well, midway through three decades, and I can already cross "A Cat Freaking Out Over a Glass of Iced Tea" off the list.

Lucky has no problems with cats on TV. He figured out mirrors immediately (at least, I never saw him freak out over one). But this morning, I poured myself a tall glass of iced tea into an opaque plastic cup. I had placed it on the floor next to me as I put my boots on to go to work, and Lucky apparently caught his reflection on the surface. He immediately stiffened, then backed away. He spent the next few minutes working up the courage to look again several times, always stiffening and backing away again. I think he was just getting used to the idea of a cat in the cup when I left, taking it with me.

Weird cat.

Creative Cat « Cat Blogging »


That's my cat, above, with his favorite toy: an orange plastic ring from who-knows-what...a juice bottle?

He likes to bat it around our faux hard-wood floors. That's normal for a cat. Last night I noticed that he'll carefully pick it up in his teeth, then hit it out of his mouth with his own paw. I guess he gets more distance by picking it up off the floor? It's like watching the feline version of handball...

More Lucky « Cat Blogging »

He's still a young cat, and still getting used to the house.

But he's laid claim to his chair. If I'm sitting in it, he insists on sitting in my lap...even when put back on the floor repeatedly (I tested it). However, it's not just that he likes the attention, because if I get up and leave, he's more than happy to curl up and sleep there.

He can't even sleep without being cute:

Let the Cat-Blogging Commence! « Cat Blogging »

So we named our cat "Lucky". It seems to fit. It wasn't until the second day we had him (today...seems too late to change the name) when we were reminded of the unfortunate fact that my 2-year-old daughter still pronounces her "L"s as "Y"s...
