Tonight the kitten came for a visit, as we'll be catsitting for the next few days. I haven't taken care of a kitten in about twenty years, and I forgot how they think. My cat, twelve years old, is still pretty active and likes to play with the laser pointer or chase geckos. But kittens think if anything might move, it should be moved. She has unearthed things from under the bed, scattered catnip over the entire surface of the kitchen floor, and jumped on to the kitchen table no less than a dozen times. (Prompt removal from said table does not seem to have an effect.) She has shimmied under the couch, behind the freezer, and even (momentarily) crawled into the refrigerator while I was putting something into it.
I am enjoying the kitten visit and I will enjoy the peace that descends at the end of the kitten visit.
