ninja kitten

yo, "ninjas are cool; and by cool, i mean totally sweet."

i am solidly convinced that lily is a ninja. she has all of the qualifying traits necessary to be an über kitten ninja. the ninja fact sheet has to be tweaked a tiny bit, since when she "flips out" she doesn't kill people--but she flips out ALL the time and kicks some serious ass. she plays hide and seek with us, but because of her ninja skills she is a huge cheater. she always sneaks around us and launches suprise attacks from behind. i think robert hamburger might even be impressed. and i swear, i actually heard about this ninja dude from an interview on npr....several years ago....i think. in real life he is a 30s or 40s college prof or sumthin'. if he has any appreciation for cats, he should enjoy the best ninja variety of kittens.tigerlily can leap past the light switches already. if i sneak up on her (part of the hide-and-seek game) she will also jump up and use the wall like a spring-board. she likes to act surprised, it is part of what makes the game fun, but she always knows exactly where i am. lily will puff her tail and run away for my entertainment, but it is just an act. sometimes i'm not even paying attention and she is orchestrating her next coup d'état. she can sit still and blend in with practically anything; she waits and watches and then strikes. ambush!heee-yaah!
then she gets tuckered out and melts people with the death-ray-of-cuteness. i can't win.

Its so funny that you call her ninja kitty and so many of the things you were talking about are things that MeiLin does. Yesterday we played hide and pounce. She sat on top of the fridge and I ducked around the corner. She would wait till I peeked around the corner, swat me with her paw then run and hide behind the bowls, then I'd duck around the corner again. I laughed my tush off. Cats are so cool and inventive.

Wow, she's amazin! She has the power to blur film! Aminds me of The Matrix, too.

my smudge does the same, except he uses the cute ray as a lure. he pretends to be wriggling around for affection, but when i reach in to rub his belly, that's when he attacks!
