Beautiful Boy

Updated on February 17, 2013

Aldous - Our Beautiful Boy

This is our beautiful boy pet cat. He used to be a kitten we rescued from the Animal Welfare League (AWL) and now he is our beautiful boy. His name is Aldous. He is 18 months old and strictly an indoor cat. He loves playing hide and seek and chasies around the house.

He meows when he wants to play and has another meow to let us know he is going to move his bowels. He loves drinking from a running tap and when no one is looking he will be hiding in the sink.

When i come home from work, he is running to the door ready to greet me. At times he will run up behind me and grab my leg and bite it and then run off ready to play.

He loves the torch light. Whenever i want give him a good work out, i move the torch light around the house and he will chase the light.

I cannot leave the toilet rolls of paper in the toilet roll holders. Overnight when everyone is asleep he pulls on the toilet paper until it is all over the floor. So now i put the toilet paper rolls on the window sills

Some Unusual habits Aldous Displays

Some unusual habits that Aldous displays is that he has a couple of cat dancer interactive toys (see below under cat toys) and what he does is drag them to his food bowl and when some of the toy is inside his food bowl he will start eating. He has also done this with string.

Another unusual habit when he was younger he had his kitty blanket. He used to drag it and try to put it over his bowel movements in the kitty litter rather than cover it with the kitty litter.

He loves pulling out the sink plugs with his paw and flicking it around the house. I forget to put them away during the day and when this happens i will find them on the floor. I have been lucky so far he has not broken anything with his flicking

      Hi there!

      My cat used to love drinking from the tap too, I'd forgotten that (she passed away several years ago). Lovely to be reminded again!

      Aldous is a beauty and it looks like he has found a great home.

      Thanks for stopping by one of my lenses.

      Sounds like you have an entertaining kitty! We used to have a cat who would dig through our garbage to find our used q-tips. He would then pick them up and carry them to the water bowl, then drop them in. We joked that he was offering sacrifices to the Water God. It is because of him that we now have a bathroom garbage can with a lid.

      He also used to hit the water bowl, so the water sloshed over the side, and watch intently at the spilling water. He is also the reason why we now have a huge, ceramic bowl that he could not splash.

      I liked reading about aldous, but there needs to be more. How about a video of his flicking the stopper around & maybe a couple more pictures? Here's my Sully who Aldous kind of looks like. (they're both black cats)

      I have a black cat that looks just like him. His name is Smokey and we rescued him from the streets. He now owns the house - though we still pay the mortgage!

      Adorable about the toy in the food dish! I have a cat named CeCe who puts a ball of yarn in the food dish as a gift to me after she's played with it a while. Aldous is wonderful!

      "He loves pulling out the sink plugs with his paw and flicking it around the house."

      If I forget to put them away, I will never see them again for sure :)

      Olivia Felini wants to thank you for bringing home a rescue cat. She was also adopted (after passing two interviews). Now she writes articles (well, one article so far) for Squidoo.
