I'm a big hungry cat.
Punkin gets her name from the color of her fur. Red female ticked tabby cats are unusual. She owns Chris. She is wont to growl and purr at the same time, which earned her the title of 'psycho kitty'. (Even her normal "hello, I'm glad to see you" meow comes out sounding like an accusation.) She spends her time looking out the window and cussing at the birds (she is also part Siamese). One particular rocking chair belongs to her alone.

I hate claw trimming
Kit-Kat was inherited from Chris's aunt. She is a 'tuxedo cat' (black and white) and looks a little bit like Socks the White House cat. Kit-Kat decided to own John. Kit-Kat must have had a trauma to her larynx as a kitten, since she sounds like she has permanent laryngitis. A simple "feed me" meow comes out like "come quick, Timmy has fallen down the well" - a low-volume but extremely urgent utterance. She also has very narrow hips, like a weasel, and her front toes are more like fingers. We think she's trying to evolve an opposable thumb; luckily, she's too stupid to know what to do with it. (Thank goodness she is not smart, like Scott Adams' tuxedo cat.)
Her motto is 'I'm the Kit-Kat, gotta love me!'

Don't pick me up!
When Punkin and Murdock were first introduced, she was up on a high
shelf when he came in. Murdock was sniffing all around; he could tell there
was another cat in the room, but could not find it. Punkin looked down
at him, deciding that this was a big dumb cat. Then Kit-Kat came along,
and she did not want to play with the others. She did not like to be picked
up. "No, sir, didn't like it." Therefore:
|Murdock||Ow-oo means "I want to go outside".|
|Punkin||Merrrr is general-purpose grumpy noise.|
|Kit-Kat||Mehhh! = "Feed me!" or "Pet me!" or "Don't pick me up!" or "Huh??"|
|Murdock||After an incredibly smelly cat poop, he runs away in abject terror.|
|Punkin||Spends 5 minutes burying her waste. Fling, fling!|
|Kit-Kat||After burying, carefully walks along edge of litter box to keep her toesies out of the sand.|
|Murdock||Tufty toes and tufts sticking up from the top of his ears.|
|Punkin||Plain, makes continuous noise during claw trimming.|
|Kit-Kat||When walking on a soft surface, such as a bed, she spreads her toes far apart.|
|Murdock||Likes his wet food in chunks. Actually, he just likes food and is not particular.|
|Punkin||Likes her wet food broken into little tiny pieces and then molded loosely into a mound.|
|Kit-Kat||Likes her wet food mushed flat to coat the bottom of the bowl. But don't put crunchies in both bowls; she won't know which one to eat first, and sits there, confused. Stupid cat! (but adorable)|
|Weird food cravings|
|Kit-Kat||(none that we know of)|
|Murdock||Loves "Cat Love"|
|Kit-Kat||Loves "Pounce Tuna"|
