I think my cat is broken.
What's one of the things that cats are known to hate the most? No, I'm not talking about mice. Or dogs. I'm talking about water.
My kitten has an unnatural obsession with water. Every morning when I shower she sits on the edge of the tub meowing and trying to bat at me with her little paw. She does this until I pet her with my soaked hands while she licks water off my hand and arm. She won't leave until she's completely soaked and her hair stands up on end like Corey Haim's in License to Drive.
Then she shakes herself off like a dog and runs around until she's dry.
And then last night while I was in bed reading we played "fetch". No joke. She likes to play with my hairbands, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that she returned it to me 30 times in a row. I'd throw it. She'd chase it. She'd roll around with it for a minute or so. Then jump back up on the bed with the hairband in her mouth, drop it next to me, wiggle her butt, get a pet, and then sit patiently until I threw it again.
I'm pretty sure she's part dog.
