Luci loves her blanket. I bought it for myself as a nice solution for that in-between weather, but it's become her standard kneading spot. Besides that she's obsessed with kitten food (she refuses to eat anything else, so we usually just mix in a little with regular kibble). She's very vocal, so will start screaming as soon as I pick up the container. Lastly, she loves salty foods. It's not like I give her a whole lot, but if I'm eating crisps, she'll be on my lap begging. She'll steal it right out of my mouth! So I now give her the tiniest piece so she's occupied.

Pandora is obsessed with trash, especially receipts. She'll look at my mum with her kitten eyes as soon as she comes back from shopping. We usually crinkle it up in a ball and throw it, she'll play with it for a while. She also love braids, she'll try to grab them when she can. I can't safely let my hair hang of the backside of the chair anymore or she'll be on it. She also loves following people, she doesn't want me to leave the house without her. She'll start stalking me as soon as I put my shoes on. Sometimes I take her when visiting my grandpa, he lives 2 streets away in a very small village. She'll strut along with me happily, tail high up in the air.

Carleton's latest obsession is my fabric lunchbox. If I know I'm going to be gone all afternoon I will take a lunchbox of healthy snacks with me. He jumps on the table, licks it and obviously smells what's inside even though it's closed and he does not get people food.

My cat has recently become obsessed with corn. Yes, corn.

Fresh corn on the cob is in season where I am right now and when I made myself some recently, she begged for a taste. Ok, that's par for the course. I usually let her try anything that's not going to hurt her, knowing she won't really like it. But to my surprise she loves corn.

Today, my cat was watching me fix lunch from on top of the kitchen cabinets. As soon as she saw me pull an unhusked corn cob out of the microwave, she lost her mind and scrambled down as fast as she could, as if it were a can of tuna. Strange little kittie.

I record a lot of music from home. Sassy ignores my computer chair unless I am sitting in it trying to record music, in which case she jumps into it and lays down behind me. She also loves being in the kitchen, even if I'm not cooking anything that would appeal to a cat, she's always hopeful.

Juno is also obsessed with watching the dishwasher empty water through the sink drain. She has learned to recognize the sounds the dishwasher makes just before it happens and jumps up to the sink to watch. When the drain cover is not already in the dishwasher, I lift it up for her so she can see the water gurgling through the drain. It only happens twice in a cycle so she waits around the kitchen so she doesn't miss it.

Thought of a few more - Sassy loves to sniff things. Sometimes she just goes outside and sticks her nose in the air for five minutes. She's like a dog in the way she follows scent trails and sniffs everything.

Also, drawers and other such mechanisms. If you open a drawer, she's there, peeking in it. "How does this work? Where does the stuff go?" If you open a closet door, she's there, peeking in it. "I thought that was a wall. What's behind it? Is there stuff behind other walls too?" I have a pull-out couch and every so often she starts sniffing and poking around the pull-out part, as if to say "where did the rest of that thing go?"
