Molly seems to like her name - along with everything else in her life - she is a most contented and cheerful little kitten! She loves whatever food I give her (or Tobie lol), she loves cuddles, she loves to play with everything except cords(!!! that's a dream come true after Fiver!!), crawls around my breakable stuff without disturbing it contentedly, and loves the other cats unconditionally. She'll sleep anywhere, but prefers it to be on or near Mum. She is not much of a purrer though, which in such a happy cat, seems weird.
But we do have our problems. She is not happy to share her kitty litter with Jackie (she doesn't want it either), and hers must be spotless at all times (another sign of an excellent upbringing, she's used to top quality care), but I have a monster cat named Tobie who finds it essential to make his mark on ANY litter, even though he goes outside. So we've had some misunderstandings about acceptable toilet spots. But only when I am not up to being sufficiently conscientious, so I can't really blame her.
I am absolutely torn apart with red inflamed and itchy scratches - if I could do that photo thing I'd show you - from ankle to knee, (I am actually allergic to cats
) because climbing Mummy is such a fun and easy way to get to her lap (those injuries are through the sweatpants!). But she seems to understand now that she can't do it that way anymore and is trying other ways of getting up to me.
She is a very pretty cat, quite a bit like Jasmine in the face, though her ears and those tuffs are smaller. She's very dark, but not black, with swirls instead of stripes like most tabbies, and it's grey and cream. She's fluffy but not as fluffy as a purebreed longhair.
I am looking forward to how she ends up looking, because it could go either way - from black and silver to chocolate and cream! There'll be 3 colours all told, no matter what, but which 3?
These are the fun of kitten ownership - watching her grow, and change, seeing her personality form. Iguess it's similar to raising any animal, including the human variety. That, I was never brave enough to try!
