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.


  1. Shes lovely - I loved her from her time at Lauries.

    You lucked into a really loving little cat there I can see :D

  2. Yay updates! It's so good to hear that the girls are doing well.

    So... have any of the Easterbrooks caught your eye? :)

  3. Oh very good to have an update on the girls after ages :)

  4. I adore your blog and your girls. You have no idea how lucky you are to have two kitty sisters who snuggle together. My two girls are sibling rivals. Hester sounds like quite the spoiled princess. Love that she has temper tantrums when she's not getting her way. LOL

  5. Sweet pictures, nice post. Great to meet you!

  6. She's a beauty, alright! I love her coloring as well as your tales about her.

  7. And, her cutie-pie sister, as well. :)

  8. She just wants to have all of your time - you're the servant, right?

    Glad that the girls are doing well,

    Charlemagne, Tamar and Mal

  9. Some girls just NEED massive amounts of cuddles. My mom had a girl with the same markings as Miss Hester, called Syliva Plath. Syliva demanded hours of cuddles every day inspite of my step-dad's need to run a business from the house. Nope, Syliva would find an arm, a neck or draped along a should with back paws in the pocket for balance. Enjoy it, relish it and have a linkt brush handy in the carr.
