Interesting fact: When you name your kitten after a vampire, you should probably not be surprised to wake up and find her chewing on your neck. Corrollary fact: Tiny sharp kitten teeth leave marks that look suspiciously like a Barbie gave you hickeys.
Seriously, my peaceful slumber was interrupted last night by Mina gnawing and sucking on my throat! I THINK (and HOPE) she was trying to nurse, because she also kept doing the kneading-with-the-feet thing — which is not that great on one’s larynx! — and I’ve been told that’s a nursing behavior. It just goes to show how very young these kittehs are — poor little babies!
I finally got her to quit by distracting her with actual food, but when I woke up this morning, I have these tiny little nip-marks on my neck! Hopefully, they’re so small no one will notice them who doesn’t know to look for them… but in the meantime, I feel like the Queen of the White Trash Prom!
And one final fact: Spraying cologne into your Kitteh-Hickehs hurts like a mother.
