Tiny Hunter

Effie is as sweet as she is adorable.

She's an affectionate and loving little thing.

But when the toys come out, she turns into a tiny, fierce hunter.

And if any human, cat, or kitten come close when she has a toy in her grips,

her eyes dart back and forth, ears are flattened, she tightens her hold and gets all growly.

And we laugh, because it's so ridiculous.

Tiny hunter, you can have your toy.

  1. I think she is Zoubi's sister. To hear those tiny kittens growl over a feather toy is so adorable. And then two seconds later, they purr and purr.

    1. Fern's toes were *so* expressive. What a fierce huntress she was! http://www.theittybittykittycommittee.com/2010/04/mine.html
      It was one of my favourite (of many) IBKC posts.

  6. Bacchus used to do that, too. He wasn't even as big as the toy! I always laughed so hard.

  7. Just like my dear departed Melanie! We used to call her The Fierce and Mighty Warrior Kitten.

  8. So precious! It's a good thing I can't have more cats in my apt, or Effie would have a new mom. LOL

    My big old boy, Chai, is the same way. He is the sweetest, lovingest cat I've ever come across but certain toys turn him fierce and growly. He will take you out if you try to take them! It's a little unnerving now but in a kitten it's hilarious!

  13. Heehee! I love when kittens get all fierce. It's just precious how teeny and ineffective their growls are.

  14. Too adorbs! Any chances we could see some video of her and her sister playing?

    I don't know what it is, but Siamese kittens always seem to be the most adorable ones to me (on a scale where they're all adorable, of course). I want to cuddle up Hazel and Effie both SO MUCH! I still haven't gotten over Louie Small.
