Mittens



All about Mittens

New kitten in the house, adopted December 2021.

Mittens shortly after we got him.

Rascal

Being the new kitten in the house, he is the troublemaker.

The other cats have excape plans to get away from his pestering.

Tiger's go-to escape plan is often this windowsill.

Foodie

Mostly my fault, but Mittens has a bit of a hankering for people food.

Here I am feeding Mittens a bit of pancake.

He now begs for people food every time we eat, and has begun sitting at the kitchen table.

Mittens pestering for macaroni right out of the pot.

But it was cute so we didn't really mind. His favourite foods seem to be Potatoes and Eggs.

Mittens Grows up

Mittens is starting to get along with the other cats (mostly at dinnertime).
Though still a gofy rascal, he is not a kitten anymore.

My little brother insisted I include this picture of Mittens. It's our favourite picture of him.

Obesity Epidemic

As a consequence of me feeding him human food, and him finishing Brownie and Tiger's dinner leftovers, Mittens is starting to get fat, so we've started to lock him in another room while we feed Brownie and Tiger. It's not working very well though so we're trying to put him on a diet in 2024.

Content warning: Bugs

Mittens likes eating Bugs, and runs to the inside crack of the front door to get first pick of any bugs that try to sneak inside. Here I let him describe all the bugs he likes to eat.

Buggy Picture Rating
Cabbage Caterpillar 7/10, fun to watch walk around
Ladybug 1/10, BORING!! too many of them, especially at harvest time
Fly 4/10, Hard to chase but a good hunt
Slug 3/10 squishy 🤢
Squash Vine Borer Larva 8/10 Big Bug and tasty too.
Black Cricket (this might be the wrong bug species) 4/10, would be a 6/10 but one of them bit me in the nose once
