These pictures are too dang cute not to post. It makes me want another kitten. Yeah right. I would love one and it would be nice for Banks to have a friend, but Jason would freak ;-) Every once in a while, he'll say, "You know we have a live animal in this house with us?" yup. They're buds, but Jason won't admit it. Banks and Jason like to play tag around the house, but without quite tagging each other. He'll chase her, then she'll turn around and chase him...I think the neigbors downstairs love it. At least we don't live above crazy-cat-woman anymore. I do have to brag on Banks for a minute though. She is well on her way of earning her keep around the house. This morning as I was heading to the kitchen and passed through the dining area, I saw a silverfish on the wall. Now for those of us from Seattle, we don't have those back home, but they look like a centipede with long antennae - nasty and fast. So I see this nasty critter and I point at it calling for Banks. She now knows that when I point, there's a bug and she's to look frantically for it. So she's looking all over and still doesn't see it, until I lift her up and set her directly in front of it. Not a second later she pounces on this thing and tore it into 4 pieces!!! Yeah!!! GO BANKS! Man, I love my cat. :-) She's also very good at killing spiders and catching flies. Spiders give her an upset tummy, so she'll squash them and then watch it for a while, but she loves eating the flies she catches -though I'm not such of a fan when it crunches in her mouth. Sick.
