My daughter adopted her mother, but did not know the cat was pregnant until a few weeks later. When it was time for my daughter to get ready to come home from college in May, the cat had four kittens, (three females/one male)They had to be brought home until they could be adopted at 8-12 weeks.
They were such tiny balls of fuzz!
I was captured by their little cuteness and mews for attention, and so I decided to adopt one. I had no idea what we were in for...
|Those sharp cat eyes watches everything!|
She loves to play games. We play tag, where she will run up to me and tag her paw on my leg then run away, and I will run after her and try catching her.
I hide until she finds me and jumps up at me, then she will run away as she screeches as though saying,"Gotcha! You are it!" We play until she gets aggressive and bites me too hard or we get bored of it.

I have given up trying to keep her off my desk. I put several boxes, frames,baskets and other items around the edge to deter her from jumping on my desk, but she waited until I was in bed to jump up,causing most of the things to fall onto the carpet. I try not to get mad at her, because I know cats are naturally curious and she wants to be in my space. I just keep her off when I am busy and she sits by my feet or on my lap :)
Her nails are awfully sharp! I have cut them a few times, but she figured out it is too difficult to climb afterward, so she gets mad at me when I get the trimmers out. She bites them and claws at me when I try to trim them. Several of my jeans have clawed pull marks,so I am thinking to bring her to the vet to let them deal with it.
My favorite time to spend with her is when she crawls beside me at night, when she is not exploring my desk, and she snuggles against my side and purrs <3
Kenzie has always been an indoor cat, but has escaped a few times. She usually just runs a few feet then stops. I lured her back with a fresh can of Fancy Feast. She sneaked out one night while looked out the door for a few seconds. I did not see her get past me. A few minutes later, I noticed she was not shadowing me around the house so I had a feeling she got out. I got some food and went to look for her. Unfortunately, it was close to midnight and she is a black cat. I tried to be quiet to not disturb neighbors. The temp was about 42 Fahrenheit. I was afraid she ran away this time and was getting upset at the thought of the local fisher cats and coyotes. After a few long minutes of calling and tapping the bowl of food, she cautiously walked up to me and reluctantly let me pick her up. She wailed her frustration of going back in, but settled down to eat her food. I have a feeling she is going to continue trying to escape and be successful someday. I hope she will be safe when she does.

I tried adopting one of her siblings to keep her company, but after only one week of having the house to herself, she refused to share her territory. Nari, who is a much calmer kitten, sat in a box while Kenzie plotted to kill her, with much hissing and agressive body language. I thought of switching kittens, but knew Kenzie would no longer get along with her mother and brother at my daughter's place. (The male kitten was named Bruce, as in Bruce Wayne.lol)
I have been also been seriously considering giving her up because my allergies are awful! My son keeps pleading to keep her,saying he will help take are of her, but he has shown playing minecraft take precedence. I am not sure what I really want,but am not liking how a cat is dictating my decorating for the holidays!
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this? please do not comment to bring harm to her, I just want to deter her,not harm her.
Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!
Love and blessings,
