I tried posting this a couple of weeks ago and couldn't because of my wireless. Let's see if it works tonight.
Niko, my little bundle of energy, loves to balance on the back of the fish tank stand. Must be all of 1/4 inch wide. He thinks the fish are there for his next meal or his express entertainment. Just hasn't figured out which.

:laughing:He almost blends into the tank in those first two. Poor little guy, probably wonders why the heck he can't see to get at those fish.

HAHA, of course he is window shopping :) for food (or games).

Cat TV I have too, it's called a washing machine in human language, but to a kitten ... where did that foam go to? :confused: I must get a pic of that next time!

Nice kitten Gerri, he does look a little like Spoutnik - at least the expression on his face does "what can I get into next!?" :laughing:

Thanks everyone! :D He is such a little dickens and has come so far from the wild one who wouldn't let me go near him in January. He is still a little nervous but is getting lots better.
Kristen - I want to say tetras but am not entirely sure. I got them last year and thought I would remember the name but DUH! I need to write it down on the tank next time. I have had angel fish, neons, and lots of others over the years but this is the first time I have had these ones. There is also cat fish and of course my 6 year old pleco.
FancyAppy - lol ummm, check out the threads I have started. You will find tons and tons of pics of Niko (who started out live as a NikA) and his 15 other sisters and cousins. You may even find a pic or two of my toy poodle and my labx. But I am sure in the near future I will find time to post more. :D
Oh, and Frenchy - he has "said hi" to the point of sticking his tiny paws in the top of the tank numerous times to wave as close as he could. ;) I have had visions of having to fish him out many times.

He is a going concern Winston. I have to check to see what he has wedged himself behind about 20 times a day. Not to mention the number of ear plugs he has stolen from hubby. I think last count was 23.:rolleyes: He loves to carry them around, hide them in shoes, and bat them with his paws. Shall we also count the number of insoles he has ripped out of shoes while playing with said ear plugs?:evil: :D

Wait till they all become lugs and sleep all day! Youll be fighting for a spot on the coach! We use to use the tin foil from cig packages and it was enough to entertain them! they didnt like other toys!

Yep, I remember doing that with cigarette foil with my Pepe :rip:. He loved that!
I know what you mean with fighting for a spot on the couch. I sit at the table and have 3 or 4 fighting for a spot on my knee or the chair I just sat on!
Right now they aren't allowed to go into the living room. Furniture is fairly new and hubby doesn't want them clawing it. Not to mention the lovebirds are in there and Tinker loves to jump the baby gate so he can go watch them up close. REALLY up close!!!
In another week when the new stray kitty is neutured they can go back out to their catuary. Right now Tomtoo has taken it over. I even have to keep my girls locked up so he can't get them before they are spayed. :rolleyes:
