I have a couple of young cats in my household and I keep waiting for them to grow older and become more sedate like the 8 year olds.
My house is “cat-proofed” and still, I’ve had to replace lampshades and window blinds. They are always looking for new things in their environment – rings from the milk bottle, a new box, a shopping bag and the moth hiding on the ceiling.
But honestly, the myth of the curious cat is no myth. And -- I like their antics, I think, because they mirror my own mind.
