Oh, I guess maybe I talk too much about the latest additions to our wonderful family here at 4896 Hobbs Road, but our two little furballs have grown into handsome specimens of felininety, (spell check says felininety is not a word - s'cuse me, spell check, but it is now!)
Both Kim and I are constantly talking about how Hammy (pictured in a typical pose) and Stella are the two most wonderful companion cats we have ever had. And don't tell me that cats do not know their names when called. Example: every night, just before bed, Kim will go out to the kitchen, get a package of "kitty treats" and begin her nightly mantra: "Hammy! Stella! Kitty treats!" and bam! both cats appear from different sections of the house and gather at Kim's feet in the kitchen.
The other night, Kim began calling out for them to come get their bed time treats, not knowing that Mr. Hamilton was at that very moment somewhat "indisposed". He was way down in the basement. front paws on the lip of the kitty litter box and back paws braced solidly in the kitty litter, making certain that his feces would land in a proper position for burial.
Hearing the call for treats,Hammy faced a great dilemma. Does he stay and finish his business or does he "pinch it off" and make a bee-line for the kitchen to join his sister in the evening's ritual. Hammy opts to cut short the bathroom activity and comes thundering upstairs. But all has not cleared the butt!
Kim sees this when he sits on the kitchen tile and good mommy that she is, accepts full responsibility and immediately goes into clean up mode. Even in the best of circumstances, Hammy sometimes is unable to achieve a "clean drop" and so he has a new nick name: CRUSTY BUTT
