I am sure you are all wondering

if Oribel is still around here at all. I promise she is, still causing trouble at times; not so much "kitten trouble" now, but more on the lines of "adult, but still young at heart" trouble. (Translate that to "bigger in size, so able to get more places" kind of trouble.) Yesterday morning I woke up to her messing around on top of our dresser. Translate that to, "playing with necklaces, trying to pull earrings off the rack and throw them onto the floor for later, digging bracelets out of the basket to chew on, etc." Last night Hubband discovered that she had knocked a pressed flower/glass hanging off the mantel and onto the floor. Now, we didn't see her do this, but since it has been up there for several years since Hubband brought it home from Cambridge to me without ever having any problems, and she has been seen up there more than once, she is the likely suspect. Last week I heard a funny noise over there and looked to see her dropping a little plastic holder off the mantel onto the hearth, just to watch it fall I am sure. One of her favorite places to take a nap is on the top shelf in my closet. To get there she climbs up the back of shirts on the hanger-rod, onto one shelf, and then over and up to the top shelf. So now I have to check my shirts for blobs of cat fur when I get ready to wear them.
She spends a lot of time hanging out by the door to the deck watching small birds on the deck and in the trees, as well as the turkeys and deer in the yard. Well, she also spends some time in the kitchen window over the sink watching everything as well. Sometimes she runs back and forth from the kitchen window, to the door, to the window in the family room to see if she can figure out where the squirrel has gone to.

Don't forget to check out Whiskers on Wednesday.

When Little Miss Ruby Kitty thinks I've slept too long, she jumps up onto my dresser and knocks things off until I get out of bed. Even if I get out screaming at her is better than sleeping...in HER opinion! She rubs up against my legs and purrs. LOL

They are characters, big and small, and we love 'em! :)

LOL, now I just can't imagine Miss Oribel causing any trouble! I'm sure you are just making that up. he he

Okay, she's looking at those turkeys and thinking, "Oh boy, lunch." I suspect, however, that if she were to attempt to put that plan into action the question of exactly who would be lunch might just be an open issue.

Aw I love hearing about Oribel's antics! Henry is still in that "kitten-mind, adult-cat body" stage too!! haha :) and OMG I would run at the turkeys gobbling for fun.... unless they are pet turkeys.... that is HILARIOUS!!

Isn't it good that they're so cute (and we blog) so their antics become blog fodder?

Now I've got an image in my head of Monica running around gobbling and flapping her arms. LOL
