Here Kitty Kitty


The other night when the kids and I got home there were five cats waiting for us in the driveway. I'm not sure why so many of the neighborhood felines had decided to congregate there, but after putting our things down in the house Az insisted on going back out to look at them. As as I squatted down with Az and tsked at the cats to get them to come closer Az immediately followed my lead, and was rewarded with the opportunity of petting a few of the braver ones. Az obviously remembered what she had learned in the ways of seducing cats the next day. While we were out getting Z from the bus; she dropped down to her knees and starting tsking again in hopes of calling out a cat to come visit her. Unfortunately for her, there weren't actually any cats around. The tsk tsk tsking has become part of her repertoire however; now when she sees a picture of a cat (or, sometimes, a dog) she makes her cat-calling sound. She is surprisingly good at patiently calling cats to her, though she almost always gets too excited as they come closer. When they get within a few feet of her she happily yells out, "Kitty!" which of course tends to send the cat running away.
