One of my favorite parts of sharing a hotel room with the Mom from Random Felines is that I also get to have kitten roommates.
This year, those roommates were three siblings who are foster cats for Colony Cats in central Ohio:
Armani, a longhaired, black and white tuxedo kitten.
Gucci, a longhaired, orange tabby kitten.
Dior, a shorthaired black and white kitten.
As you can see, Dior wasn’t so sure about me at first. She even hissed at me when I scratched my fingers on the carpet to try to get her to come out and investigate me. It took about a day for me to become un-scary.
Of course, much of the entertainment of rooming with kittens is their kitten antics. Kitten wrestling.
General kitten hijinks.
And stalking toys.
And when they weren’t doing that, they were mesmerizing me with their eyes, that were just changing color. Can you believe those long eyebrows?
I made sure I taught them a thing or two, also. They took to cat games on my iPad.
Dior was a big fan, especially when she didn’t have to compete with her brothers.
The boys loved killing the mouse on the screen, too.
I also brought the kittens a cupcake. That’s a spoiling-your-kitten-roommates privilege.
Don’t worry, they just got a little bit of the icing. That cupcake was bigger than their heads!
The kittens also made friends. Gucci was fascinated by Sophie from Kitty Cat Chronicles.
Armani, who was out of the room most often, met the most friends, like Snotface the ferret.
He also met Dexter from Playful Kitty.
Since he spent time in the cat lounge, he got to check out some of the cool stuff that was on display. Here he is in the NappingJoJo moccasin pet bed.
Armani isn’t the only kitten who got out and about. All three took turns visiting their adoring fans, and everywhere they went, the cameras came out.
But Armani was the only kitten who modeled a little hat for us. Doesn’t it go well with his tux?
Dior, who started the week hissing at my fingers scratching the carpet got more and more attached to me. She led all three kittens over to my bed to sleep one night, and the last night, she chose to sleep with me instead of with her brothers. Don’t tell Ashton!
I always have a cat carrier in my car, and it was really hard not to ask to take her with me. But she will be one of the first kittens available for the year in Ohio, and there is a family out there who is going to love her.
So I kissed all three kittens goodbye and sent them away on the bus. Okay, it’s just a VW bus carrier, but it looks like they’re pretending, too.
Let’s all wave to the kittens as they drive away in the bus!
It was so much fun spending time with the kittens, and I hope they had a little extra fun with me around, too.
