The big ball of hot light hasn't been here for long, and my person is awake! I woke him up by jumping on his head, then running away and finding something to rattle when he tried to touch me. My circle thing with the bell makes a lot of noise when I run fast, so I ran fast for awhile, too! He's making loud talking noises and rubbing his eyes a lot. I think he's glad to be awake, just like me.
It's been a couple of days since anything really interesting has happened. There was one time where my people went away for a long time and came back with lots of food, then went away again and smelled like smoke and something he called beer. He went into that tub thing and poured water and smelly stuff all over himself for awhile, and he smelled like normal when he came out. I don't know why peoples do this thing. Their own smell goes away and they probably wouldn't be able to know each other by sniffing anymore. Then again, people smell bad sometimes, like just after they eat things that kittens can't eat, so maybe it's good that they get rid of their smells. Come to think of it, I've never seen people sniff each other. I wonder why?
There's something outside that rough claw-catching thing that sounds very strange. It buzzes and hisses, and I can't get at it! I wonder what it looks like, how it tastes, if it would play with me or if it would crunch if I bit it. That rough claw-catching thing is a bit scary though. My people calls it a screen. It blocks a big hole in the wall near his big soft thing - he calls it either a bed or a futon, I'm not sure which it is - but if I jump at it or try to scratch it, sometimes my feet get stuck on it and I have to pull really hard to get away. Is it alive and trying to eat me? I don't think so, because it never moves on its own. It definitely doesn't seem too fun to play with. If it wasn't there, though, I could go out of that big hole and find the buzzing hissing thing. I guess I could've found it when I was out last week, but I didn't think of it. I was too busy wondering where I was and being scared that the big moving wall would never open up again to play. This time, though, if I had a big space to run back to if I got scared, and if I knew my people was near me, it might be fun to try. I know that this screen thing can move...it makes a loud noise when it does, though. When he came home with food, he brought it in from the little place just outside his screen by pushing it open and stepping out through the hole. There was a big car or friggintruck outside waiting though, and I was scared of it, so I didn't run out past my person's legs. One of these days, though...
I wonder what those chirpy things are outside. They make a lot more noise than the buzzing hissing thing. I think I've heard my people call them jays or birds. Would they play with a kitten? I've been able to see them by looking through my people's screen, and they can flap parts of them and move through the air without walking! I wish I could do that! Maybe I'll try one day.
I notice that these loud floating things wake up very early, before that big hot light is as big and hot as it gets later on. I want my people to enjoy the bird-jays with me! I think tomorrow maybe I'll wake him up when they wake up. Besides, if he makes more noises at me and tries to go back to sleep, it'll serve him right for putting this loud circle thing on my neck!
I'm going to go explore that screen while my people is distracted eating his food, I think. Maybe he won't notice and I'll learn how to make it move.
