So, am I now going to have to have a fan club for each and every cat? I’m still getting ’roundto’ setting up Nugget’s “official’ fan club. What am I doing with all of my time — no kittens under foot? That’s a very good question. But a question for another post when I get ’roundto’ THAT! I’m currently lollygagging in bed with Gypsy Rose. I have, alas, been abandoned by EVERYONE. Are my mornings with the bed covered in kitties over? Yes, it would seem so. I don’t know who is leading this movement, nor why. For the last couple of nights even Nugget has declined to join me, preferring to party with the others downstairs while I sleep. I guess the prozac is working! I open my door in the morning and a few stragglers wander in, nose around, use the litter box, then split–except Gypsy Rose. I strongly suspect that I’ve been feeding them too much in the evenings so that they are not appropriately pleased to see me in the morning, fickle little beasts that they are! I particularly miss my Tiny Bear snuggle in the morning.
Now there’s a prime example of how easily I can wander off course! This post was prompted by an email from one of KittyCam’s few male regulars, Bobin, concerning a comment he read on my YouTube channel by Ravenaevans that she is a ‘card carrying member of Simba Kahn’s fan club.’ Well, you can understand Bobin’s panic at the thought that there might be a fan club for Simba Kahn of which he was unaware! I believe a few threats were even mentioned along the lines of minority discrimination towards the male gender and other such folderol. So, Simba Kahn now has a fan club as well. It’s going to be a shock to the poor little retiring fellow. When he finds out, he may spend a week in the kitchen cabinet, but I’m sorry, it’s going to have to be done!
MORE interesting than the above claptrap, is the story behind Ravenaevens’ statement. Some of you may know that she is Mickey’s new mom (one of his new moms) — Mickey was Goliath from the “G” litter. Early this year Ravenaevens contacted me to get on my kitten list because she had lost a shaded golden male cat she was very attached to, and while she was looking around the Internet at Persian cats, Simba Kahn caught her eye. He was the spitting image of her lost kitty! It was very interesting to discover that her kitty and Simba Kahn’s parents were from the same cattery and were also very closely related! So, now she has Mickey — never a replacement, but a new kitten sure goes a long way towards filling a hole in a heart! Mickey’s dark markings are all fading away, but fortunately he managed to worm his way into their hearts before they discovered that he was going to look more like his mother than his daddy. I’m sure it doesn’t matter a whit!!
