Beethoven


I love this picture of Beethoven because he is smiling and he looks so happy.  It's quite a good picture for him because he is a happy kitty.  He loves everyone and everything.  He was adopted on February 3, 2008 as a tiny kitten to be company for Boy.  Boy wasn't at all sure that he wanted company, as he had been an only kitty for eleven years.  At first, Boy hissed at Beethoven whenever he saw him.  Boy has given that up now, but he still whaps Beethoven on the head quite regularly.  Beethoven loves it.  Beethoven even loves going to the vet.  He hasn't had his hoo-haa-ectomy yet, though.  I wonder if he will still love going to the vet after that.  Beethoven got his name because his Mom is a musician.  He has a cute t-shirt which reads Beet-in-oven, which is a joke with his Mom.  She calls him Oven for short, which makes Boy grin.  Beethoven loves to play with just about anything, but water is what he loves to play with most.  Boy thinks that he's really weird, but that doesn't bother Beethoven.  He has already learned how to flush the toilet and I'm wondering if he won't figure out how to turn on the bathroom sink tap next.  His Mom often fills up a small yellow tub in the bathroom sink for him to play with.  He laps and bats at the water and loves to fish his sparkle ball out of it.  Sometimes he just sits on a wet cloth and stares at the water.  He loves it when his Mom sprinkles water on him.  He even loves to take a bath, but doesn't like licking himself dry afterwards.  You can see a video of Beethoven playing with his tub of water here.

                               Beethoven loves to play with water,
                               Though Boy tells him he shouldn't oughter.
                                              He could play all day
                                              In the sink and stay
                               Happily sitting on a cloth soaked in water.

Beethoven is a very funny boy. I think it is hilarious how he enjoys getting whapped in the head by Boy!

I is sad today because the Giant Kitty told me I has to go to the vet to have some parts of me taken away, but your limerick cheered me up. Thank you so much Karen Jo!

Beethoven does look like a very happy cat. Isn't he cute, loving water. Mom used to pronounce Beethoven as Beeth- oven, as well, so she gets the joke.

We love Boy and Beethoven, with their separate blogs and their rivalry.
