Things I Like: the Chai Edition
Since I got to talk about some of the things I like yesterday, Chai figures it is his turn to share. So here are five things Chai loves.
Which actually means slowing down the process. He also gets hair all over the comforter– what was I thinking, a brown corduroy comforter and a white (ish) cat? I lint brush it each time I make the bed– but Chai loves to attack the lint brush, so it’s
not always effective futile.
Crumpled up to-do lists, tea-bag wrappers (it’s a chai one in the photo), the paper wrapper off Ferrero Rocher chocolates (at Christmastime he broke into the cupboard and stole one, just for the wrapper), bits of newspaper… the sound of anything being crinkled will bring him running.
Even if I think Chai is fast asleep on the futon, if I go into the bathroom, he shows up. He has to supervise any shower or bath, his favourite way to drink is from the running faucet, and sometimes he just lies in the tub for fun. There is a hole in the shower curtain as a result of his over-exuberant playfulness.
Actually, he prefers to attack my foot, with or without a slipper, but it is very painful so I distract him with this stuffed dog. He always goes for its throat and often carries it around the apartment–
It’s so cute to see him waiting for me at the window when I get home from work. The routine is almost always the same. He’ll get down and wait behind the door when I open it, then as I am taking off my coat and hanging it up he walks over to his scratching post and scratches it (to declare that the apartment is his territory?) and then we have a little snuggle. He also likes to bird-watch and spy on the neighbour-cats.
What’s that you say, I’m a crazy cat lady who obviously doesn’t have any friends? 😉 What does your pet love to do?
