Cats ♥ YouTube and little kittens just as much as the rest of their family

Each morning, while I'm waking up and planning my day, I sit at the kitchen table reading the news and checking out my favorite blogs in Google Reader. Either Rosemary or Camille makes it to my lap wanting to cuddle and nap and get stroked (what better way to start a day, right?). Yesterday I posted here a little YouTube video of the sweetest kitten getting tickled and cuddled on its mommy's lap.

Today Camille made it to my lap first. Wanting to see the little kitty again, I slid over to my blog and what took place after that you see below. I've never seen Camille so focused on my computer screen before and she's spent many a morning on my lap. I kept playing the kitty video over and over timing how long it kept her attention. I was a little surprised to find out that Camille watched that little kitten for half an hour!

I had read about cats that like to watch television, guess they ♥ YouTube videos, too.

Keep in mind...she's on my lap while I'm taking these photos. My movement and the noise didn't distract her attention on that kitten for a moment. And, in case you wanna know, my camera is always on the kitchen table. You just never know when you'll have a cat on your lap watching YouTube☺

Mimi, I want to thank you for your thoughtful, wise comments on the passing of my baby, Gizzy. You were sooo right! There is no replacement for Gizzy but I do have a new love & he has replaced my grief w/ laughter.

Loved your post on Apr 9th...talk about sriking a chord! And tell Camille I love her name. ;o)

I really do appreciate your kindness Mimi...you've made a friend in me.

That's so cute. I have a picture somewhere of Rosa watching some Peregrine Falcons on my computer screen. It was some years back and I watch these falcons every year, but she only was interested the one time. I've been meaning to post the link to the falcons on my blog. You'll have to see if Camille finds them interesting too.

Those have to be some of THE most precious photos I have ever had the pleasure of seeing!! I love them. I used to have cats, and they loved watching TV, especially if animals of some kind were there to see. Looks like your kitty might be the mothering kind, loving the sight of that tiny sweet kitten on You Tube. Thanks so much for sharing such delightful pics with us.

Mimi, I have an award for you so hope that you will drop by for a visit and take a peek! cheers, Debby
