Are we headed on a little shopping trip, Mr. Sunshine? Going to buy gifts for your family and me?
Things don’t always turn out according to Mr. Sunshine’s plan, but then, I’m not entirely convinced he plans things.
When he gets an idea, he’s ready to roll, like today when he thought he’d stick his nose in this little basket just to see if there was anything in it that might be good to chew on. He didn’t anticipate the handle which slipped neatly over his head as he tilted the basket in his enthusiastic inspection, and then he was stuck with it.
As a youngster he was a little accident prone—whenever he jumped onto something I knew something would be knocked down and he tended to run into a scene at just the wrong moment, like when I’m carefully trimming a claw which is suddenly pulled from my hand by the kitty who has to go and chase Mr. Sunshine. He still tends to eat strange things and chews on plastic, like tape and plastic bags, and he’s gotten himself in a little mess with the emergency veterinarians that way. But he’s a happy kitty, playing with every toy and running just because it’s fun, and he’s a great breakdancer whenever the inspiration strikes him, which is once or twice a day.
He also thinks he’s my greatest protector, turning sideways and arching his back against my shins as he stands on my feet, which I’m sure would intimidate any intruder.
He has his brothers and sister to keep him in line.
