Kitty had been hiding under the bed all day. At first, I thought he was annoyed that I kept playing Marilyn Manson’s cover of Depeche Mode’s ‘Personal Jesus’ over and over again. I just bought it on iTunes today (along with Bjork’s Medulla).
He seemed content and yawned and purred under the bed.
Then I realized I hadn’t checked his litterbox since yesterday morning.
I think he was on a catbox strike. He must have swiped a bran muffin when I wasn’t looking. I remembered reading online that cat’s are really sensitive about their territory in that respect.
Astro is a clean freak.
My sister is recommending I get Astro a playmate – she said that he’ll be less likely to bite our hands and ankles if he learns better ‘play-fighting’ with a buddy. We’ll see – she and her hubbie are coming up in a couple weeks to play.
I thought a good name for the other cat would be Cosmo. So it’s like astronaut and cosmonaut. That or Destro. But wasn’t that the bad guys in GI Joe? Nah – that was COBRA. Who had Destro?
(five minutes later)
Never mind. Destro works with COBRA:
DESTRO is the chief weapons supplier to the COBRA organization, and a man of raging inner conflicts. Although he finds the aims and methods of COBRA COMMANDER to be distasteful, he is obligated to deal with him for the sake of family business.
