More Fun Than Expected!
Ellis and Opal had planned to spend the last days of spring break vacationing at the ocean but in the last minute plans fell through, and they ended us spending yesterday at our house.
With five kittens here, keeping Opal and Ellis occupied all day was easy. We spent the first hour of their visit discussing tabby patterns and lynx ears and learning names. While the kittens were active, they played with the kittens, and when the kittens got tired, they tried to lure as many as they could to their laps and they rested with them.
They guessed which kitten weighed the most and who weighed the least and then put them on the scale. We filled five dishes with lunch, then watched the kittens eat. They decided which kitten they would keep if they could keep a kitten then changed their minds a dozen times. In the end, Opal's pick was Spencer and Ellis' was Beau.
When the day was winding down, Ellis said, "I had way more fun than I expected to have."
I laughed and Opal explained, "He meant that as a compliment."
I laughed again.
It was a fun day for humans and kittens, too.
