Mindi and Kili are two old kitty ladies that live with me. Old in kitty years. Over 15 yrs old now. Mindi has some trouble with a hip - I suspect arthritis - she's rather fat and lazy. She is, however, a snugglebunny and manages to get up onto the sofa whenever I sit there and snuggle in the crook of my knee.
Kili, on the other hand, while looking "old and wise" - actually still has the physique of a young cat, thin, muscular - she still plays "string" with an old shoelace, and bats her stuffed-felt mice around and tosses them into the air.
Kili, however, has developed a very strange habit the last few days. I don't understand it.
She has taken to sleeping with her head and shoulders (only) under my "Rubbermaid©" plastic stepstool. It's the oddest thing in the world - rather ostrich-esque.
Cats. Go figure.
