The big cat, also known as Kitty, is Kivrin’s new bff. She pursues him with a squealing joyous passion, especially now that she is crawling. Luckily, Kitty vaguely tolerates her advances and is learning to just stay a few feet away from her. He is interested in her, but cat-like, acts disinterested. This morning, they went around and around the high chair, Kivrin advancing and Kitty retreating in a neat circle on the kitchen floor.
