I was unpacking groceries one day, and Mr. Sebastian Kitty thought it was fun to jump in the Trader Joe's bag to hang out. Not sure why he liked it in there. You can see Yaffa mommy, sitting on the chair on the top left looking down at him to see what he was up to. He sat in that bag for a good 15 minutes, and didn't seem to want to get out. Then he grew bored, and jumped out of the bag. I guess he likes Trader Joe's just as much as we do.
Yaffa has come a long way from the days she roamed the streets of Brooklyn. When Kyle rescued her, the first month that she was living in the apartment, she was extremely skiddish and hid pretty much the entire time under the futon. She didn't liked to be pet nor picked up. I was surprised that Kyle was even able to pick her up from the street and carried her all the way to the 6th floor, where he used to live. But look at her now, in the year and a 1/2 that we've had her, she has become quite the house cat. From time to time, she still gets skiddish when she wants to be, but more often than not, she is found either sitting on Kyle's lap, or resting quietly next to us.
We recently put a new birdfeeder outside the window and every since Sebastian has been having the time of his life jumping on the window sill and trying to scare away the pigeons, squirrels, and finches. He can sit there all day, and he scratches on the window begging us to let him out. Being that we live on the 3rd floor, that is not a possibility. He always gives us this face that says, come on, please let me go out and play!
Here are some photos of Yaffa checking out the other members of our household. She especially likes to sit on the window sill and watch the tank. Sometimes, I catch her trying to pet her aquatic friends, as she swats the glass. She also gets a kick out of the ball. Little Tony, the hamster loves walking around and exploring, and doesn't fear Yaffa or Sebastian. Thank goodness for plastic! Visit the modulator!
The cats never fails to amaze me, how cute they are. Little kitty Sebastian, just loves cuddling with mommy Yaffa cat. He even wraps his arms around her, like they are hugging. They do this quite often when they think we humans aren't watching. They are such an affectionate pair.
The cats received this Christmas present from my brother. Since the cats are so playful, this is perfect for them. However, the only one that has taken a liking to it is Yaffa. Sebastian has yet to catch on. We put a soft towel inside, and some toys, I'm sure Sebastian will be investigating it soon enough.
We're sorry for not posting during the holidays, we were away visiting family. However, we are back, and wanted to post some photos from Christmas. Guess who just loves hanging out underneath the Christmas tree? He loves to nap there, and drink the water out of the tree stand. That must be some tasty water, since Sebastian's water bowl has fresh water! One day, we also caught him chewing on the branches! He must like the pine smell. Oh, and his favorite game, swatting the ornaments off the tree! We are going to have to take the tree down soon, I dred doing that because the cats will miss it!
