Goddamn Dreamwidth isn't working anymore already, so I'm going to stick in here for a bit. Honestly, it's becoming an annoying issue and I don't have time for that.

I'd like to report the current cat situation, particularly concerning Little Flint.

As you know, she's the only female of the group. Prince Leopold and Moustache, her brothers, are males but, as it happens in life, they are pretty useless while Flint is the more proactive and dominant one. She was always like that, but now that she's almost one year old, she's becoming more and more indipendent. We talked about her the other day, when I saw the lady's daughter.

Little Flint is going on hunting/exploring and she comes home sometimes in the mornings and sometimes after a couple of days. She's sterile, so there's no way she's going to make new kitties, but she goes away all the same and I think she puts herself in danger? One time she came back with her tiny forehead all dirty with something like plaster. (??) Another time she came back after two days and she was limping. One time she came back running, literally chased by another, bigger cat. Yesterday, when she came to me, she looked so anxious! She was jumping at every sound and, at some point while eating, she heard a dog barking somewhere and she stopped eating and jumped on the highest spot to search for the dog.

Little Flint, where do you go?

It's hilarious because Leopold and Moustache never, ever go that far away. They stay in the perimeter between my house and the lady's house. Instead, I spotted Little Flint at the very end of the road, where there's a house which is work in progress (That would explain the plaster!) and there's a hill.

I saw the bushes moving, I turned and ... who was there? You guessed it, Little Flint!

Thing is: this hill brings you to a whole new side of the town and there are dogs there and other houses. I fear Little Flint could put herself in danger. But I know she has fire in her veins and she's free as the wind, there's no way of stopping her. Still, I hope she doesn't wound herself. She's so tiny compared to the other cats!

And now, gratuitous photos of Little Flint:

A cute girl



Awwww, why cats' ears are the greatest?

Thus I conclude the cat spam.

Some cats just have to have adventures. I knew a family once that got a cat from a cat shelter. They promised he would be an indoor cat. But nope - he drove them so crazy they had to let him out.

My parents' elderly cat (he's approaching nineteen now) used to play chicken with cars. That is, he would just lie down in the middle of the street. Cars would come to a stop and honk at him, and he would just lie there.

Also when he was younger, he would get up on the neighbors' balcony. He could get up there, but the tree he used to get up there had such thin branches that he couldn't get down. So he would stand on the balcony and scream and scream until the neighbors got home from work/school. He did this three times.

Another time he came home with a big lump, and we all thought he was going to die. We thought he had cancer. My sister took him to bed with her that night...and probably regretted it because the lump exploded and she got pus all over her bed. He'd gotten hurt somehow, but he was fine in the end.

Both him and my beloved female orange tabby cat, who was an outdoor cat in her younger days and died at seventeen, acquired little nicks in their ears over the years.

We spent a lot of time carrying him out of the street. Eventually he stopped - my mother is convinced that a car ran over him and he went between the wheels, and that scared him. Something made him realize how stupid he was being.

(the above was written by my cat)

What *I* wanted to write is: cat's ears are absolutely among their most wonderful body parts!

This is him: like Moustache, but with less white / a smaller moustache.

Thanks! He really is very lovable -- the most affectionate cat EVER. He never gets enough of petting and snuggling and cuddling.
