This is a picture of my kitten Schnikelfritz, better known as Fritz. I also call him le chat fou (the crazy cat). He's a year old and he's super funny. We got him last November and I'm really glad we did because I totally love him. Here's some funny things about him:
  • Poor Fritz went through a bit of an identity crisis. When we first got him, my mom thought that he was a girl, so I named him Gracie. That was his name for a few weeks until my parents figured out that he was a boy.
  • Ever since he was a baby he hasn't drank his water from his water dish. He prefers to drink from the toilet or from glasses left on a table or counter top.
  • He refuses to eat fish of any kind. He's more into eating  fried rice from the Chinese restaurant and Burger King's french fries. 
  • He's the loudest cat I've ever met. He'll walk around the house meowing just to hear himself. 
  • He sleeps with his tongue sticking out.
  • Sometimes he purrs so hard that he grunts. 
  • He jumped in the shower with me once.
  • The first night I let him sleep on my bed he nearly pushed me out of it. (He sleeps on his side with all four legs stretched out as far as they'll go. Kind of like he's dead.)

 Oh, and as a sidenote, Schnikelfritz is an old German word that roughly translates to a naughty little boy. Perfect name for my cat.
*Thanks to Emily for translating Schnikelfritz for me.
