What's New with Ace?

Ace had a visit from his cousin Christina from San Diego. It's hard to say which one of them enjoyed it more. They both had a blast. They would have played together all day, if we let them.

Keeping Ace out of trouble is almost a full-time job. He has discovered that there are lots of yummy wires hidden behind the computer. This is a very good place to lie down, stick your paws out from under the monitor and bat at mom's fingers on the keyboard. Cool things happen when you walk across the keyboard too.

Sometimes a wild jungle beast appears hidden in the leaves of the Schleffera. He's just waiting for an opportunity to pounce. I'm scared, aren't you?

Another cool pastime is trying out various sleeping poses. This is a cute one curled up in his bed with Kitty. When we brought Ace home, Kitty was bigger than he was. You can see that the tables have turned.

Here's a less dignified on the couch pose. Growing so fast requires putting in a lot of nap time. Ace is no slouch in this department.

A few of Ace's loyal subjects like to keep watch over him while he sleeps. When they are not keeping watch, they spend time migrating to inaccessible spots, such as way, way under the couch.

Steve says we now have taken over 500 photos of Ace. He is 4 months old today.

Ace is getting bigger

Ace has added a few new fans to his fan club lately. Here he is posing with his new members Linda and Janet in the bathroom, which is his favorite room.

Ace likes to get on the toilet so he can check himself out in the mirror on the back of the door. Sometimes this leads to accidental closing of the door. Oops. He's looking quite handsome here.

One of Ace's new tricks is deposing stuffed kitty from the top of the scratching post. He does not like having her up there, or catnip mouse either.

After knocking her off, he gives her a good thrashing. (This is an "action shot" which is why it appears blurry.)

Ace assumes his rightful position of King Kitty.

But sometimes Ace is in a more contemplative mood, quietly gazing out the window at the neighborhood doings.

And sometimes he just likes to sleep on his favorite pillow.
