This little fluff monster proved that adoptions are not always the easiest thing to adapt to. I let him out of the carrier, and he went straight underneathe my dinning room table! Not to come out for several days! I was devestated! I thought ......great, I rescue this cat, now he repays me by living under the table! One day I could not take it any longer. I crawled under the table, and after much fighting, and chasing, I came out with him in my arms. I sat down on the sofa with him in my lap, and stroked him, and talked baby talk to him, to help him realise that I had no intentions of hurting him. It worked! And Shorty loves to sit in momma's lap to this day!
How Shorty got is name. He technically has never been named. I went round and round with names, but just could not find anything that I liked. One day, he was walking into the kitchen to see me, and I told him "you are such a little Short-stuff". Short-stuff led to Shorty, and it just sort of stuck! Some of his nicknames include.....Shortcake, Shorty-monster, Short 'ems, and just plain Short.
Shorty's favorie past-times are: climbing to the highest places in the apartment, tormenting his brother, sleeping on top of the television,sitting in momma's lap, and sucking up cat nip! Shorty has a jeolous streak about him. If Munchkin gets close to HIS momma, Shorty must be closer! If Munchkin is in my lap, Shorty is on my shoulder. If Munchckin lays next to me in bed, Shorty climbs on top of me! He also gets jeolous of my arts and crafts, reading, or WEB TV. If I am not devoting enough time to him, he lets me know it by getting in my way. He is my lover boy, and revels in lovin's!
Imediately Shorty was threatened by another cat entering HIS house. So, there was alot of hissing and growling going on, but soon they developed a brotherly bound between the two of them.
How Muchkin got his name. Originally the breeder called him Prince Albert, but that was just too prissy for my taste. Again, here I am trying to name this poor cat. Heck, Shorty didnt even have a real name yet! And one day the two of them were playing, and though Shorty was still a kitten too, Munchkin was just so much smaller than him. So.....what's smaller than a "Shorty"? but a Munchkin! I still have never sent in his kitten papers, because I just could not come up with the prissy name that they need for kitten papers! Does that make me a bad momma? Nicknames for Munchkin include, Monkey, Pumpkin, Precious, and Pumpkin Pie.
Munchkins favorite past times include, but not limited to: watching the birds and squirrels in amasement while he makes this clicking noise in his throat, playing with his stuffed mice, sleeping on top of the afghan in the back of my bedroom closet, hiding from Shorty, and his terrorists attacks, and eating momma's houseplants.
