    Yes, sometimes the positions are almost painful to see.

    My parents had a cat that was a little kleptomaniac ... she would go into my sister's duffel bag on family visits and make off with my sister's hair "scrunchies" (or whatever they are called).

    Ohhh a scrunchie stealer! I've had a kitty klepto before . . . it keeps you on your toes when things go missing. Currently I have more of a fetch cat - she likes to have us throw her toy (usually a soft spider or 2" plastic bug) and she'll run, pounce on it, kindof bung it around a little, bring it back, and toss it toward you using her neck. Once she even tried to get me to play fetch with her by tossing her toy on my head in the middle of the night as I was sleeping - what an awakening!

    Very true But they are there whenever you need them, it's almost like they know you need their companionship.

    I adopted 2 kittens when they were less than a week old and near death. It was actually 4 but 2 died 2 hrs. after I got them home. My intention was to give them away. Lets just say MOMMY is a sucker because Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee aren't going anywhere. Not even if they knock my orchids over a million times more (Don't worry the orchids are fine too).

    MY my cats leave the orchids alone, also Arthur is fascinated by the LECA pebbles, because they are round and bounce on the floor. And all of my 3 cats try to drink (and succed) the rain/filterd watter with orchid food that I put aside in a small bucket for my vandas. They seem to like it (probably contains microelemnts that tha cats need)

    Why don't you post photos with your kittens.
    I raised 3 kittens, 10 days old, feeding them milk every 3 hours with a seringe. They lived in my room for abot 30 days untill they were able to eat by themselfs. That was one agitated month. I am lucky the female labrador I have took over most of the cleaning of the kittens. BUt since I allready had 2 cats keeping them was not an option.

    Animals aren't always drawn to things that are good for them. Keep in mind they are drawn to drinking anti-freeze too.

    I have been learning a new phone and have had to use my work computer which may not let me anyways (my home computer got de-magnitized when my giant cat knocked it off its stand). But I have saved pics. from when they were tiny to their healthy size now (they are now 2mos.). One of them is actually the color of the one in my avatar and the other is white with what looks like a grey mohawk. Then I have my giant adult cat (not fat just sized almost like a bobcat) and a black and white cat that is just fat .

    Sounds like you got your hands fool
    As for my cats having a drink from the watter, my vet checked the cats, the labels, and said that in such a high dilution the watter is not toxic, of course I don't let them drink it all up, but sometimes it happens
