Attention getting Hester

Keeping Hester occupied is very difficult. She is very active, curious, attention loving, loving, purring girl. If you ignore her she knows exactly what to do to get your attention. Chewing on electrical cords sparks an immediate reaction. Thankfully there have been no sparks.  She will also run screaming around the house if she doesn't get her way. I have never encountered a cat that has temper tantrums. I personally think she get A LOT of attention since immediately after the morning ablutions and general getting ready for work she DEMANDS to be held.

Hester: Damned, right I do! I deserve it. And you love it because I purr a lot. Red, you just don't smell like mine when you get out of that contraptions. I gotta make sure the rest of the world knows that you belong to ME!

I literally hold/cradle Hester during the morning. Very difficult to dry my hair with a cat perched/hanging off of my shoulders. I even play with her in the morning before I go to work and in the evening when I return home. Part of me thinks I have to get some kittens to keep her occupied but the thought of two more (kittens must come in pairs) in the house to run all over me is just too scary.

Hester: HEY! Pay attention to that string and me, Red! (She hit me and camera with her paw)

Bottom line - I love this little girl and I wouldn't change her for all the money in the world.
