A Thundering Herd of -- Kitten

Thumpetty-thumpetty thump-thumpetty-thump!
Here comes a herd of
One kitten?
One kitten is making all that thunder?
Around the corner. Leaping onto the rungs of the stool. Balancing like a gymnist. Swinging around the bar, catching another one, flying off onto the floor into a heap.
(lick/ lick -- smoothing fur -- I meant to do that. cold stare. walking away with tail aimed straight at the ceiling.)

Yes, our new kitten gets larger and stronger every day.
You can't sit at the dining room table without something (someone) attacking your legs or pant leg or skirt.
No wonder we call her "Monster cat" -- MC for short.

When I was a teenager, my bedroom was in the basement. My family always had a lot of cats, and I swear they would deliberately thunder about right over my head. To this day, I don't like cats. I was emotionally traumatized by the thunder (at an age when sleep really matters, you know?).

We got both our cats at the same time, from the same litter. Double thunder! Hard to imagine that one small critter could sound so big. Of course now one of them is over 20 pounds... ;-)
