mentioned toys. She can catch the toy while it is swinging over 5 feet in
the air. She really is no fun to play with. She always wins. Then she
takes the entire apparatus and runs away. A while later she comes back and
wants to play again, but she never bothers to bring the toy with her.
If you read the Mama Kitty story, you know how Kinsa came to us. We named
her Kinsa after the girl Kinsa. Both of them are independent, smart and
spunky. They play well with the Abduls (the three male kittens were named
after the Abdul boys), but when the games get too rough, they do their own
thing. Kinsa means treasure in some Indian language. Hindi? Urdu? Craig
thinks Urdu. Kinsa was not quite as strong as her boy litter mates. When
they were first learning to crawl out of their basket, she was the last
one. Half way up the side of the basket, she gave out and fell straight
over backwards. Poor Kinsa. Now she is the most athletic cat we have. The
boys canít keep up with her.
