Kittens are delightful little creatures in any household and it is a real joy to see their crazy antics and to have a camera to take cute funny kitten pictures. One famous quote that comes to mind is “A kitten is the delight of a household. All day long a comedy is played out by an incomparable actor.” ― Champfleury, Before showing you these pictures have a look at the short video clip that we took of her. What a real bundle of energy and joy she is!
Lily is a tortoiseshell rag doll breed of kitten and we discovered at an early stage that she was very feisty, fun loving, headstrong and a bundle of energy!
Cute Funny Kitten Pictures of Lily
1. Early pictures on climbing post
- This is the first picture taken of Lily who was only a few months old at the time. My son bought her a combination scratch post climbing pole and you see this adorable looking kitten perched up the top. Kittens love these types of pet activity items of furniture and they come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. My son bought this particular one from a local pet store but Amazon also has an excellent range of these activity centers
- One of the peculiar habits of Lily that we observed as she got older and grew bigger was her liking for sleeping on top of her scratch post climbing pole and you would always see her draped over the top of it with chin and paws hanging over the sides, a very funny sight!
2. Hiding in the wine rack
As with most kittens Lily always found herself some good hiding spots in our house with the linen closet probably her favorite as she could sleep on freshly laundered linen and remain unobserved there! However on this occasion with my wine rack due to be replenished she took the opportunity of crawling into it, the little scamp!
3. Acrobatic exercises
To ensure Lily got plenty of exercise we bought a cat dangler pole with furry attachment which was supposed to be indestructible ( Ha Ha! ). It was quite remarkable to see how high Lily would leap into the air to try and catch the furry object on the end and would often end up doing cart wheels. A really funny sight and remarkably she always landed on her feet! Sadly for Lily these very athletic exercises ceased after she was spayed at the vet!
4. Another unusual sleeping spot
While people like to sit or sleep on couch seats cats seem to like the highest parts of the couch. Here we have Lily on New Year’s day having obviously over indulged the night before!
5. What’s so unusual about this?
During the Summer months the nights in Western Australia are normally quite hot and humid so we always have a spare mattress on standby to be dragged out into the largest airy living space in the house where it is cooler to sleep. So whilst not in use during the day it is a comfortable perch for Lily!
One of Lily’s bad behavior habits was in climbing curtains and then walking across the curtain rails on top. A very destructive habit where lace curtains are involved and ours soon had lots of tear marks in them from the cat’s claws.
Not only that we often had to use a step ladder to rescue her from the curtain rails as while there was no problem for her climbing up, getting down was another matter! Here is the result of one of her climbs – curtains brought down!
7. The challenge of climbing doors
The security grille on our front door was another favorite climb for Lily, the grille making perfect foot holes for her claws as she quickly shinned up it!
Once on top of the grille next thing to do was walk the tight rope ( top of door ) followed by ‘how am I going to get down! ‘. Out comes the step ladder again for rescue of kitten!
8. Comfort in a cardboard box
Whenever Lily saw an empty cardboard box around in our house she would climb in and make herself comfortable in it. For some reason she always found a feeling of security in one and liked the warmth of its confined space. Just look at those eyes – scary!!
Sadly Lily no longer lives in our house. Our youngest son and his partner have since moved into their own home and took Lily with them. Not only does Lily have to share their house with them but they have an additional male kitten George and a newborn baby and this changed environment caused her a lot of stress initially. We still get to see Lily when we visit their house but she is now a much quieter and more sedate adult cat.
