Blake and Batman

Blake's new favorite thing to do (besides annoying me) is to act completely bothered and put out by the sweet and adorable kitten, Batman. And, because our God is a fair God, Batman LOVES Blake and follows him around. He often jumps right into his lap on Blake's new chair, consequently forcing Blake to have actual contact with the cat....or vacate the chair.

Most of the time, Blake will sit there and act miserable and ask me repeatedly to "turn off the purring machine" because Batman just looks up at Blake adoringly and purrs away. So, all in all, the cat is a hit in the Starnes house.

I often ask myself which brings me more joy....watching Carter and Jack enjoy the kitten or watching the kitten annoy Blake. It's a toss up. Either way, we're keeping him.

I can see the love for Batman in Blake's eye -he's not fooling anyone!

I love that the cat loves Blake. This is exactly how it was with my cat growing up. My Dad thought the cat was such a pain. Would jump in his lap, etc. Even telling the cat to jump in the pool! But every now and then we would catch him petting her or playing with her. He really did love her!! ;) BTW: Love the chair. I noticed it in other pics to and meant to mention it to you!

Awww. And Josey's on Ryan's lap, and his stinky dog is at my feet...

Ask Blake if he wants a dog.

I do not like the cat. I do not like the cat. I do not like the cat. I do not like the cat. I do not like the cat.

This is my new mantra. Pretty soon I will actually belive it.
