Happy Halloween

I hope you all have a Happy Halloween with lots of treats and no tricks, unless you like them.

Here is Keiko on the living room table. She is the only one allowed up here. It could be because she has the honor of being the first kitty to be adopted into the Kitty Quartet or it could be that she is so sneaky and determined that the Mom has given up on trying to keep her off the table.  If I read and did my addition right, Keiko is four years old.  She is full of energy and loves to be up high.  She was delighted when her family moved into a house with stairs.  She likes to climb up the stairs on the wrong side, that is, outside of the bannister rails.  This makes her Mom nervous, but she hasn't fallen yet.  Keiko also likes to hang out on top of the refrigerator and on any shelf she can find room enough for her. She likes her nip quite a bit.  For some reason, when she was adopted, she didn't know about playing with toys.  Her Mom and Dad have slowly taught her the fun of toys and Keiko is learning.  Keiko is very fond of milk and her Mom or Dad will often dip their finger in their milk and let Keiko lick their finger.  The only thing that Keiko doesn't like about her life as part of the Kitty Quartet is that her brother Kenji likes to chase her and try to wrestle with her.  Keiko doesn't want to kitty wrestle and wishes that Kenji would limit his wrestling to his brother Ryker.

                                                   Keiko likes to sit on the table.
                                                   She grins because she's the only cat able
                                                          To sit there with no fear
                                                          Because Mom makes it clear,
                                                   "I don't want kitties on my table!"
