Marie is the sweetest cat I have ever known. However, that doesn’t mean she never gets into trouble.
One of her favorite things to play with is cords. Television cords, computer cords, headphone cords, etc. Luckily, she is fairly easy to distract, so this isn’t too much of an issue. That being said, some days I strongly consider just getting rid of all of them. But that’ll never happen unless I can convince my mom of all the reasons we don’t need a TV.
Her newest hobby is stealing socks. While I wish she didn’t, I’d much rather her steal socks than possibly chew on a currently plugged-in cord. At least socks can’t electrocute her. Though truthfully, I may not be as okay with this if she went after my socks as much as my mom’s.
Marie likes to “help” with everything. I put quotation marks around the word ‘help’ because her “help” isn’t exactly helpful. In fact, it tends to add difficulty to simple tasks. I mean, I glad she likes my knitting needles, but it’d be a lot easier to knit if she wasn’t trying to chew on them as I did so.
Sometimes her mood can take a 180 degree turn. One minute, she’s laying on the back of the sofa, perfectly calm. The next, she’s sprinting halfway across the house, pouncing on everything in sight. It’s kind of peculiar since she use to always be so calm as a kitten. But still, at the end of the day, she really is a great cat.
