There is one other cat in the mix, he is also a kitten himself, not that you would know it! He is clumpy and bumble footed and crashes through everything. He has no manners and is so clumsy - all this because he is so BIG for his age. Other than his size, he is also sweet natured and lovable and enjoys chewing LLD's leggies and giving him a good rough game. I have to say about Ikon that his English is really good now, he still squeaks with an accent which sounds ever so funny compared to our trills. He has grasped the basics with NO being top priority for his biting and sometimes Momma says it in Polish and he REALLY knows she means it. His biting has subsided now that neither ManSlave nor Momma play those games with him and use other toys to distract him. He still tries to bit if you trim his claws - he in not one for a Mani-pedi and has a short fuse.
He knows OUT, usually from the office. He knows IN, usually from outside. IKON COME ON - means he gets ducky treats. IKON IKON IKON IKON means there is meat in the bathroom for him at lunch and dinner. He is learning OFF, mainly from the kitchen sides as he gets pushy when Momma is cooking. He goes all still and non bendy when the OFF word is used and a help down from the work top several times with an OFF is working. He almost had Momma A-over-T on the stairs so now he has added DOWN DOWN DOWN to his repertoire of English words. He races down like a good boy and waits at the bottom to attack the hoomans feet instead. He wraps his body around their ankles and bites their socks and the Hoomans just walk along, dragging on one foot a Polish duster. He really is a hoot. When he gets bored he makes this sound like a duck. He wanders around slighting quacking until he finds something to do. It is a really cute sound and nothing any of us have heard before.
We have only really just trained Tyga to behave in a orderly fashion and being a girl, she was quick to learn and enjoys praise. I went through a stage of hating her on sight and she didn't fit in at all and everyone picked on her. Then I got sick and she came and looked after me. Then she got sick ans I looked after her. Sometimes Flaire can be very mean to her and Ikon is a bit heavy pawed. She is very strong for a small cat and really wallops him. He is two months younger and he is twice her size, but still she keeps him at bay. Tyga is a proper little lady, not at all like me really, she is not in any way a tomboy, which I am glad of really. She does have this funny habit of screaming in a high pitched wale to get attention and it is usually when she needs a quick cuddle. It is very endearing really. Tyga is great at teaching LLD too, she plays really sweetly with him and lets him share her toys and gallops about in the cat tunnels at high speed. She is the only one out of the three kittens to not stand on the computer keyboard and doesn't stand on the bread boards either. I guess LLD, once allowed into the kitchen, will be all over the joint!
Speaking of joints, I can smell something yummy roasting away for lunch. We all get a little nibble and I am guessing today is turkey! I shall nip downstairs and poke my head into the hot pan when ManSlave brings it out for basting and I may get a sneaky taste if he is feeling generous . He is always generous when Ikon is about, so I may train him to come with me on a Sunday to help seal the deal of a turkey snack. Heavens above, my mouth is watering at the thought of it now. Right....Ikon Ikon Ikon Ikon.....come hither me mighty pal and off we shall trot for a nobble of a noble turkey breast.
Bye for now my loyal subjects and enjoy your Sunday roast too - be it meat or nut.
