I can't do anything without my kitten entourage. Seriously. Unless I tuck them away in their bedroom, they are with me, they are near me, they are on me, they are watching me. It's sweet for awhile, but they do make it difficult to accomplish any sort of task.
The other day, I was doing dishes and the whole brood was crying at my feet and climbing my backside. I tried to redirect their focus by pulling a chair into the kitchen and piling them on the seat.
This kept them busy for awhile, but eventually they figured out they could jump from the arm of the chair to the counter.
Fortunately, I finished the dishes and drained the water before Curtis landed in the sink.
