My Kittens Are Defective!

When you have brandy-new little kitten-monsters, they're supposed to greet you at the door bouncing up and down in a frantic display of cute. They're supposed to be hollering the kitty equivalent of "Daddy's Home! Daddy's Home! Yay!"

Bah!

I've been home almost 45 minutes and what have I gotten? Kitties sleeping.

Sleep on your own time dammit! Wake up and entertain me!

Oh, they'll wake up and entertain you, all right.

If they're anything like baby homo sapiens, they'll do so right about 2:00 a.m.

Take that, daddy.

Have you forgotten that cats are nocturnal animals?

Actually, it's less about them being nocturnal than them sleeping about 3 hours for every one they're awake.

They just crashed again from about an hour and a half of running around like crazy. (nothing broken, yay!)

Michelle K said...

But... that's normal for all cats! Sleep 10 out of 24 hours a day!

Nathan said...

Actually, more like 14-18 hours.

Just like parents who wish "Oh, if only my little baby could talk," you're gonna regret it.

Remember Nathan, Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea. Thus saith Robert heinlein, and my experience validates that statement.

To sleep, perchance to dream.

...perchance to ::cat pounce:: ARGH!

Janeice is right--they'll be plenty active... at two or three in the morning, when they will not only wonder why you're so "lazy", but will take active measures to "rectify" the situation. My cat, when he was a wee kitten, used to like waking me up by sticking his tongue in my nose for some reason. And then there's the classic swat and pounce.
