Tangi is the newest addition to my household. Tangi's mother belongs to a friend of my daughter. When my daughter learned the cat was expecting, she asked if we could have one of the kittens because she was concerned about me being the only thing that moves in the house after she went off to college. Tangi was the only kitten in the litter (tangi is Tagalog for "one and only"), so it was hard for the family to give her up.
She is adorable, but she is ripping my legs to shreds. I'd forgotten how playful kittens can be! They jump at everything that moves - drawstrings, shoestrings, hair, fingers typing on a keyboard, etc. And when they jump, their claws are extended. Trust me – kitten claws are S-H-A-R-P!! But, I'm a cat person and I will endure the loss of skin and blood because I know eventually, Tangi will treat me like I'm an unwelcome guest in her house. In the meantime, my blood type is A+. Let me know if you're a match. I may be calling you.
