Clementine




This is Clementine in the laundry basket.  Samantha had been sitting in it not long before.  Clementine has become a typical little sister.  Anywhere that Samantha goes, Clementine wants to go there, too. Clementine first showed up at the house on December 13, 2009.  The Mom and Dad heard a kitty meowing on the second floor patio and there she was.  The Mom took her out some food and let her in the house when it began to get really cold. Samantha was not terribly pleased about that, but there was nothing she could do about it.  The Mom and Dad asked all around the neighborhood, but nobody was missing a little orange kitten, so she stayed.  At first she was called TOK, The Orange Kitten, but she soon got her name of Clementine. She soon went to the vet and checked out as completely healthy.  The vet estimated that she was somewhere between six months and three years old. She doesn't seem to have grown much, so she is probably at least one year old. She didn't act at all feral, so she must have belonged to somebody at one time.  At first there was lots of hissing on Samantha's part, but it didn't bother Clementine and the hissing soon tapered off.  Now the two of them pounce each other and wrestle. Clementine loves to play, especially with Samantha, but Samantha isn't always willing.  Clementine also hunts bugs and investigates everything she can reach. She likes to drink water out of the bathtub.  She uses her paw to check the water temperature to see that it's not too hot, then dips her paw in the water and brings it up to her mouth.

                                                 Clemmie likes to go where Samantha was
                                                 If you ask her why, she just says, "Because . . ."
                                                           She pounces on Sam
                                                           With a jump then wham!
                                                Kitty wrestling has started with flying paws.

I love cats... Hello there Clementine. I also have two cats at home and two bunnies that I want you to meet. I had my cats and bunnies for a year now and they just love each other very much. They are too close and my cats even sleep in the rabbit hutches.
