There is never a dull moment here with two wild girls to contend with. If it's not Faith, then it is Lillibet! Climbing doors, curtains and shelving!
Today, I heard a noise in the kitchen and wandered in so as not to mis anything. Actually, I ran! There was a cuffuffle and a squeaking and finally a loud scrabbling and as I raced in and looked up, there was Lillibet in a small box of Stella Artois Cidre, which I must say was balanced on the edge of the kitchen side and balanced on the top like a Pro was Faith. How on earth Lillibet hamanaged to scrabble into the box is unbeknown to me? But she ha managed it with the help of her Mother, who really must have been acting as ballast during the whole episode.
The pair are just encourageable really. It was only last week that the 'invisible' shelves 'were' mounted on the wall in the kitten room. I say 'were', because, after a circuit race around the house, the shelves were used as a short cut from the Kitten Box to the window sill? There is 4ft at least between each leap, but round and round they went until, finally, with a crash and a thud, down came the lower shelf and deposited all of the toys and bits that Momma keeps up there. Of course the pair of whirlwinds stopped in mid-hurl to turn and look at the damage, which they estimated was not their fault at all! Faith then stalked the odd toy and gave it a tentative Thwak with her paw to make sure it was dead and announced 'Hims did it!'
Lillibet is quite a sweet little thing really and if it wasn't for her Mother leading her astray, she would be a perfect young lay with good manners. Faith, is of course, well brought up and only teaches her Daughter the very best things, but Lillibet is not as agile as Faith and often something Faith can do, Lilliet just doesn't seem as graceful as she thinks she looks! She is in that teenage long legged gangly stage who of course 'thinks she can fly' - well, I can tell you from experience that she can not!
