This is the grandcat and she has come to visit for a few weeks or maybe a month. Russell's daughter Tanya drove all the way from TX to OK so Russell could catsit for her baby. This cat is a wild one. At first she just hid under the bed in the guest bedroom. Then she started venturing out and becoming more friendly. Now she's not afraid of anything. Just today, she jumped on the table, the kitchen counter, and my desk. She clawed my exercise mat all up. I have not seen her use her scratching post once. Not yet, anyhow. The dept. manager at my work told me about some things called cat caps that you put on a cat's front claws. They prevent the cat from scratching things. First you have to give them some drops called Cat calmdown so they get drunk and you can glue the caps on. These caps stay on until they chew them off and then have to be replaced. I am going to look for these tomorrow and may have to drive all the way to a nearby city to get them. It's worth a try. Here are a couple of pictures of the little devil. :) It looks like she is still just a kitten so we will try to forgive her naughtiness.
Here she is sitting with Russell on his chair. See all her toys in the background? She may be a bit spoiled.
