I dn==========] (Felix wrote that walking across my keyboard) don’t think he ever lost his feet, but my cousin commented that Felix has landed on his feet. Felix has been with us for just over two weeks. He weighs 3lb (1.36kg).
It’s nice to hear the pitter-patter of little feet around the house. Sometimes it becomes the galloping thunder of little feet. ‘He’s a mixed blessing,’ says Mum as she looks at the pulls in her skirt made by his claws or stands up from her chair to find the laces of her shoes are untied.
Here is Felix the Fearless exploring and playing.
Of course, there are many missed shots of Felix in mid-air, doing somersaults and star jumps, and those funny sideways jumps kittens do. You’ll have to imagine those.
The back of a dining chair helps Felix work on his balance, his poses and applause.
Then it’s time for a stretch on the chair cushion, displaying fangs Dracula would be proud to own.
Can a cat ever be cured of its enthusiasm to join in our meals? We have to shut him in his room at dinner time.
While Felix is mostly confined to the house for now, he has spotted one interesting neighbour – and one outdoor resident.
Felix has some hiding places and out-of-the-way retreats.
Felix in repose is perhaps when he is at his most endearing – even if he’s taken your chair (and the remote).
