With thirty-two individual muscles in one ear alone I can hear that the kittens have been let loose in the main house.
Being a cat, I can listen with both ears to different sounds, so I can hear kittens racing around trying out new things in the lounge as well as concentrate my other ear on what might be on offer in the kitchen! Anyone watching me might think that I have some sort of headache as one ear is focused forward and the other twisted backwards towards chopping and stirring sounds coming from the kitchen.
Since these little beasts have been let loose, the house hasn't been the same. Nowhere is safe from the marauding miniature felines and the thundering of tiny paws up and down the laminate causing everything in their wake to tremor with aftershock.
Being a Sunday today, I thought there might have been a little smidgen of chicken for us all, especially me because I have been YAWPING since the morning when I first saw that chook head for the oven. Alas, there is nothing because the Parentals added chilli to the illustrious featherless beast to devoid us of a tasty treat. I would obviously still eat the chilli chicken, no problem there, but I don't want to add to my already delicate constitution. So, ears at the ready for snippets of useful information, dropped morsels or a chance to rule over the minicats!
