This is my second time rereading this fic. It is so very well written (as all your fics are), I simply LOVE how you portrayed the kitten thinking. xD
Roger talking to the cat about his feelings was adorable, and I feel actually pretty in character (I could really picture him talking to the little fluffball about Mark). Mark's jealousy was also cute.
This whole fic was well written, adorable, and funny all around. Great job! :D

That was ADORABLE. I loved it! The part with the kids was so cute, and Cohen REALLY reminds me of my mom's cat...she hates me! This is definitly going on my favorites list!

Great, great, story. All-around, it's very well-written, a nice balance of actual dialogue and action with the character's thoughts. And yeah, it was all sorts of fluff, but in a good way. Characterizations were down perfect, too, and in general, it was extremely enjoyable. Good job!

"Maybe... Benny and Joanne going at it? No, Maureen and Cindy still win. Oh, fucking great. That's burned into his mind, now."
That was hilarious. Great line.
I love this story! And how you keep changing the povs. It's so great!

All cute things gravitate to Roger, huh? Poor Adam- Uncle Mark can't remember him, so he will throw him out! Very small child logic. All three kids have distinct but non-cloying personalities, which is hard to do with very young characters in a short amount of time. I can just see Amanda jumping on Mark and Matt hidden behind his headphones. I hope that sometime we get to see how the trip itself goes...
The description of Mark's relationship with Cindy is my favorite that I've ever seen. It makes more sense than the more typical idea that she's an evil, evil thing who plots against poor innocent Marky, like the whole world often does in fics. In that one background paragraph, you gave the connection more subtlety than most novel-length stories do. They love each other, but they're very different.
Anyway, great job.

Even though this story is light and fluffy and fun, it still has absolutely amazing characterization. The various names the characters choose for the kitten are all perfectly in-character. There are so many other perfect touches, too, like Roger's comment on Mimi's style of fighting. ("I should tell my style of fighting. I don't move, gaze or speak.")
I did get a little bit irritated with Mark for hiding the cat, though. Just because he likes it now, that doesn't mean he should let Mimi think it ran off.

Congratulations on writing a brilliant and beautiful cat-point-of-view. Even though the writing style remains readable, it changes to go along with content of the cat's mind. Best line: "like it's my fault Roger has taste."
I also love how Mark and Cohen understand each other in ways the oblivious object of their affections seems to miss. And of course, Collins knows all, but without being one-dimensional or annoying.

Let me tell you a story about this fic.
Way back when you first posted it on your livejournal, I started reading it before I had to go to work. I didn't have time to finish it, so I emailed it to myself (because who can concentrate on work when there's really engrossing fic to be read?). At work, I found out that the email didn't go through, which resulted in me doing a lousy job at whatever I was supposed to be doing. Ficcus interuptus makes me very grumpy, after all. THEN I got a message from the work email server explaining that something had been emailed to me that had been stopped because of the language. (This is strange considering that my work-related stuff is usually full of quotes from people with far dirtier mouths than Mark and Roger. Also strange because in this particular story there isn't much to set off any censor.) A rational reaction at this point would probably have been to worry about how I was going to explain the content of my email to whoever was in charge of stopping it when s/he noticed I'd sent it to myself. MY reaction, of course, was to continue sulking because I still hadn't gotten to finish reading.
However, when I did finish reading, I didn't review, which is obviously wrong. So I'll review now.
Hilarious line: "okay, there was the one time with the leather and handcuffs..." And poor Mark, jealous of a cat AND mocked by Roger's jacket. The whole story is witty, though, with its offhand remarks about "girlish screams" and "innocent filmmakers not uised to sprinting."
The premise of this story is brilliant, especially in a fandom that lends itself so obviously to angst that it rarely generates fluff. Even though people in real life do feel jealous of pets, the idea is still inherently silly. There's really no question who would win in a Mark/Roger/Cat triangle, but the feelings and realizations are at least as much fun as if the outcome was in doubt.
Okay, moving on. I promise the next review will have more about the actual story and less about workplace email censorship.
