Nikita


Nikita has only been blogging since October, but he is a very interesting kitty.  In the picture, he was having such a good nap in a sunspot that he didn't even wake up when the sunspot moved.  He was born in March of 1998 and within a month he and his Mommy and siblings were all in a Humane Society shelter, looking for a home.  They were ferals and were caught and put up for adoption.  A short time later, The Mad Macedonian found him there and took him home to be a companion for his old cat, Warrior.  The two of them got along fine, but Warrior went to the Bridge just three months later.  Aside from a short time of trying to tame a feral black cat, which didn't work out too well, Nikita has been an only cat and likes it that way.  He is an inside cat, though he does sneak out once in a while and leads his human on a short chase around the yard.  Once this didn't work out as Nikita planned and his human didn't notice he was out and went to work.  Nikita was stuck outside until he got home again and this freaked Nikita out a bit.  He decided he didn't like it outside for any length of time.  Nikita loves to look out the window and has conversation with passing animals to pass the time while his human is at work.  Nikita is a very clever cat and soon discovered that crinkling paper would wake up his human.  Like most cats, Nikita's idea of breakfast time is much earlier than his human's idea of a good time to get up.  Nikita put together his information that crinkling paper would wake up a human with his desire to be fed at 5 am.  He once succeeded in getting the Mad Macedonian up at 5 am to feed him by crinkling paper and pushing it off onto the floor. After it worked once, Nikita made a regular habit of it.  When they lived in a one-bedroom apartment, Nikita's habits would get him kicked out of the bedroom.  He then discovered that he could push pieces of paper under the door to wake up his human.  Now the Mad Macedonian tries to make sure that all pieces of paper are out of Nikita's reach before going to bed.  He doesn't always succeed.

                                           Nikita loves to play with paper,
                                           And he invented quite a caper.
                                                   He pushes it under the door
                                                   While his human does snore.
                                          He asks for his breakfast by crinkling paper.

What a smart kitty that Nikita is! We might just have to look into his methods ourselves...

Great limerick too! It's great the way you pick out key facts about Nikita to include in the limerick.

Oh my, I'm immortalized in verse!

How very, very cool! ;-D

Daddy enabled me to post under my own name, and set up an archive, just for me, to act as a "Blog within the Blog", that I call Nikita's Place.

The CatBlogosphere is such a vast place, and I'm still trying to find my way around it, and my own place in it.

So glad Momo can't read this, she has enough ways and means to wake me up without an extra one - SS.
