I think my cat is a dog

I think my kitten, Oscar, is a dog in a cat's body. He is an adorable 3 months old with a ton of spunk. I guess you could call him an average male kitten. But there's one thing, he is not afraid of anything.

Any typical cat would go running at the mere sound of the vacuum cleaner. He stays put and then finds something to chase. He is not afraid of the noise of clapping your hands or wen you sneeze or cough. He is not afraid of anything! If I leave anything sitting out he is right there chewing it to pieces. He digs through the kitchen and bathroom trash. He loves to play, cuddle, be picked up and held, lay in your lap & kissed on top of the head. When you throw a toy he may chase it for a second but then he will put it in his mouth and carry it around like he just conquered his villian.

We have two dogs at our house. One is a yellow lab and the other is a great dane. When he first sees them on the other side of the sliding glass door, he runs up with such excitement he doesn't realize he can't go through the door and runs right into it. He continues to meow at the dogs and wants to play. He meets Jake, the yellow lab, and he is all over him. Batting at his face, rubbing on his legs. To Oscar, Jake is the next best thing since sliced bread.

He meets the great dane, keep in mind that Duke's head comes up to my boobs. He is about 150 pounds. Oscar jumps at his face and CHASES Duke around the house!! The other morning, the dogs were sleeping in the garage and then they are let out side. Oscar is perched on the top of the couch waiting. Duke comes out of the garage and walks past the couch. Oscar takes a flying leap off the couch right at Duke's face. Duke jumps back and runs outside. Imagine that, a 4 pound kitten jumping at a 150 pound dog with no fear.

He is the cutest thing ever! And he gets much joy out of unrolling the toilet paper roll that is on the holder, leaving a huge pile of paper on the floor.

Oh- did I mention he likes to lay on his back with his legs spread open and air out his junk?
