A month ago, we rescued this 6 week old, cool patterned (black n white, bi-colored), Domestic Shorthair off the street.. We'd just finished dinner, when I heard faint cries coming from below our kitchen window (we live on the 2nd floor).. I went outside and found a kitten, scared, shivering, and hungry, only a few feet from the busy road, sitting in a crummy alley at the corner of our building, crying her pretty little head off...
Sophie got accustomed to us and our home in no time.. She even takes the train commute well (her vet's located 2 station stops away and I don't drive).. It's been only a month since we took her in but Sophie's already bossing us around in style :) Very active, naughty, feisty, stubborn, free-spirited, super-cuddly, and very, very affectionate - Sophie's a great package.. Glad I found her when I did..
However, she does tend to get aggressive (biting), usually when she's in the playing mode.. Probably a result of having lost the company of her mother and siblings at such a young age.. Sophie likes to wrestle with us despite the toys we've given her and our firm 'no's.. Yeah, she enjoys tearing our hands and feet to pieces, and ambushing us for the heck of it, specially when we stir in our sleep.. So, I've been busy disciplining the li'l devil.. Getting her to understand what's ok and what's not.. I think she'll out grow the biting but I still want to do everything on my part to make sure it doesn't become a serious problem.. Hard work but we'll get there..
She loves watching tv with me.. Ok, so she doesn't really 'watch' tv - it's the flickering images on the screen that look good to her.. Cartoons and a few shows on Animal Planet seem to be her thing.. Good 'ol 'Tom and Jerry' tops the list (not surprising).. How adorable is that..!!
She also loves to watch me work.. As you can see below, Sophie was 'actively involved' through out the making of her cartoon character.. Supervising my every move.. Hope she likes how it turned out.
