Kitten Antics

If you've ever had a kitten, you know how funny they are. Gizmo is pretty much a constant source of entertainment for us around here. He's always doing something to make us laugh and I often find myself calling for David to come look at what Gizmo is up to now.

One thing that cracks us up the most is how he likes to relax. Last night I was doing some work on the computer and looked down to see Gizmo like this.


He stayed that way for a while! I thought he was just being goofy, but apparently it was comfortable. He really likes to stretch out and relax. Sometimes he gets so relaxed he eventually falls asleep.


Of course with Gizmo being a kitten, it's not all relaxation. One of his favorite things to do is jump on top of Jasper when he's taking it easy and minding his own business. They wrestle around for a while then the chase ensues. Jasper is much older (around 8 or 9 years old) so he will only put up with Gizmo for a short while before he's finished playing and runs to a place where Gizmo can't reach him.

Often times this chase will happen in the middle of the night and they love to run across the bed using us as launching pads. We haven't had a night of uninterrupted sleep in quite a while!

Brotherly love.

I also have to be very careful when I'm taking my food photos. I've learned to take my business elsewhere and shut the door so I'm not disturbed by an always hungry and curious Gizmo.


I'm sure he will settle down eventually. I'm trying to enjoy these days because in time he will not be a kitten anymore and I'll miss these days of crazy Gizmo. But I don't think Jasper will miss them one bit!

  4. I know someone who had such a funny kitten, he'd wait and when her dog went by, jumped on him, hahaha, it was hysterical. But it didn't take long at all for him to settle down, and I sure missed him jumping around being funny. :) I laughed at your pictures.

  6. Our kids (and maybe even myself as a child) all had the little golden book, "Kittens Are Like That." Gizmo reminds me of that book! We also have "Puppies Are Like That".. our McGee is coming up on his 6th birthday, and while there are many rewards of a dog who has reached maturity, I kind of miss the puppy in him!

  7. ha ha - that's so funny! Oh boy does he remind me of Jackson. Jack will be 3 in March and he still acts that way so you've got some years before he'll lose the playfulness {and years before you'll get a good night's sleep again!} :-)

  8. Awww, I do wish I could have a kitty. I am wicked allergic, so I visit with other people's - until I start to sneeze LOL.

  9. Now we know where the fur in the peanut-butter cookies comes from. Years ago on Sunday mornings I would always get this big bag of greasy fresh-made donuts from a real little cafe bakery across the street from the biggest horse-chestnut tree ever. You'd take them away in a wax-paper bag, which, despite the wax, would soak up much of the oils. If you didn't pick them up carefully, they'd fall to bits when hot. Well one cat really loved to eat them and looked forward on Sunday morning to chomping some fresh and still warm donuts. So I can see if your cat wants to eat cookies.

  15. adorable kitties. I need and want one so bad. My husband and I disagree on being a cat owner, so we have been cat free for quite a will.

  16. Ahhh Tammy-Gizmo and Jasper are so adorable. I can't imagine having kitties playing in the middle of the night-and darting off the bed to boot. Cute post.

  20. Kittens do bring such fun to life - love hearing about the crazy things he does. He's a cutie pie. It's been a long time since I have had a kitten - I seem to end up with fully grown cats that need a home. I had a cat named Jasper throughout my children's childhood and he lived for 18 years! Love the shot of Gizmo in the cookies. :) xo

  25. So cute Tammy:) I love those little pink noses and paw pads. Kittens are inquisitive and have such a silly sense of humor. I don't have a cat at the moment, but I can remember the days when I did and all the antics.. they DO have a mind of their own! xxleslie

  26. I love how playful they are as kittens. My two would play "take down" in the middle of the night. Winston still gets the cat crazies and runs like a crazy cat.

  29. Ha. I love it. We have a 1 year old and a 4 year old kitten/cat. :-) They are so funny. Our 1 year old, B, he likes to stretch out, tummy up in the air. Max our 4 year old cat, he only sleeps curled tight in a ball. Fun! I just love Gizmo!

  33. I always love your updates on your cats! Cute photos! I like the blanket, too--looks like hand knitted or crocheted, so pretty. I used to make blankies for my kitties--they loved napping on them! Now I live vicariously through your pets! :)
