My cat, Max, isn't a kitten anymore but still tries to sit on the laptop while I work - thing is it is not the lap top he really wants to sit on - it's my lap. He wants my full attention!
We got him from rescue as a 9 month old kitten and from day one he earned his name Max as in 'Madmax'. He used to charge around the house at full speed bumping into everything so we bought him his first toy - a bungy jumping parrot. It hung over the door frame tempting him to play but in the end we had to take it off him because he wouldn't stop running and jumping at it. We thought he'd have a heart attack or something because even though he was out of breath he wouldn't stop. we only allowed him to play with it for about an hour a day eventually he broke it and we couldn't get another one anywhere.
Max only watches telly when the nature programmes are on with birds or mice are the subject. He used to go round the back of the telly to see if the animals and birds came out there or he'd sit on top of it trying to catch them. We bought him a video years ago 'specially for cats that had animals on it and it was hilarious watching him react to it.
He also likes the sound and feel of plastic shopping bags and loves being carried around in them and if you bring a cardboard box into the house he can't wait until you've emptied it before he wants to get in and it doesn't matter how small the box is he will still try to get in. Mirrors are still a fascination with him he really wants to fight that other cat!
He's nearly fourteen now and still has mad half hours charging round the house, up and down the stairs (usually before going in his soiling tray). He also loves the smell of bleach??? I have to keep him out while I am cleaning and then he goes mad to lick, sniff and cuddle my hands so I have to make certain they are absolutely washed off before I fuss him.
He brings smiles even laughter to our faces every day. It'll be a sad day when he goes...!?!
