The Body in the Bathtub

Noah continues to provide excitement and entertainment at my house. In fact, he provides a little too much excitement, as far as the perma-cats are concerned. He enjoys following them, sometimes too closely for their comfort. I often hear growls and hisses, and Josie’s peculiar little old-lady whine, if Noah gets too near to them.

But the boy is young and is energetic. He wants to play, he wants to wrestle, he wants to explore. That’s his life right now. Periodically, he does rest. It was very hot this past weekend, and I had a nap on Sunday. Noah trotted in and got up on the bed; after his presence forced my Chubs to go elsewhere (even though I was between them), the boy settled down beside me. He was actually still and quiet for a measurable amount of time.

But he has taken to lying in the bathtub. The air conditioning was on during the weekend (it was that hot), so the temperature in the house was hardly unbearable, even for cats. I don’t think Noah was in the tub for the cool feel of the steel. Even so, he spends time in there, sometimes playing with the stopper or the shower-curtain, sometimes, mercifully, lying motionless on the bottom of the dry tub. But never for long.

  1. Youth! Noah reminds me so of Annabelle. Who tries her darnest to get the seniors in the house to play with her and they won't. Makes me want to get her a young cat, but truly 4 permanent cats is enough for the time being.

    1. Hours of entertainment, perhaps, for him!

  3. The "body" sure is cute. We still have our paws crossed that someone will fall in love and adopt him soon, maybe someone with a young cat he can tussle with. :-)

  4. Aww, he looks cute in the tub! Leo plays in ours, but I've never seen him sleep in it! Though it does seem like a nice cool spot, and to each his own!

  6. My kitties all liked tubs. In fact, I have only a shower stall now, but I find Quinn curled up in the corner occasionally. Quiet? Solitude? Maybe. But for a kitten, well....
    Can't answer that one. You're on your own!

  7. The bath tub is a great place to hang out. We have a kitty here that likes the bath tub. I figured it must be cool. Have a great day.

  9. Noah seems like a very social le cat. He just wants to be at the centre of the party. I do like that idea of giving him a ping pong ball in the bathtub! My Jessie used to enjoy knocking the shampoo and soap into the tub. That got my attention! From Eileen and Jessica

    1. I may give him a ping pong ball, but right now he seems to be enjoying himself with my tub and sink stoppers...

  10. I'm so happy that Noah is happy. He's like my Tigger. All young boy, full of play and adventure. He'll be batting his toys about and then just stop, run over to me and purr and want to be petted, then run back to his toys. I love that. My cats are mad for ping pong balls.
    I lost my 21 year old George (who looked like an older Noah) yesterday, so I'm really appreciating seeing your happy, peppy boy.

    1. I'm sorry to read of your George passing away. Even at 21, it wouldn't have been enough time to have him with you. It never is. My Tungsten has been gone three months now, but every cat here and everything I do for them is her legacy. It's how she lives on. It may be how George will live on, too.

    2. Thank you, John. You are a very special person. What's beautiful way to honour your very special girl. It's exactly the way I'd like George to live on.God bless.

  11. What a sweet boy! I sure hope he finds a forever home soon, perhaps one where he has a fur sib to play with.

  12. Aww sweet. My pops loves sitting in the shower cubicle too. She loves licking the water up and the smells in there. We hope Noah gets an awesome home soon.

  13. Noah is so precious! He seems a bundle of joy. If I were a kitty, I would probably like the bathtub.
