A/N: I just had some random ideas about Kai reacting to different animals. The chapters can be viewed as oneshots. That's the only reason I'm posting it. i'm really bad with updates. I have to have the creative juices flowing...They are in sequebtial order...I think...andd the prolougue isn't up yet cause I need to write the second part...hehehe...anyways!

Summary: a series of drabbles about Kai and the Blitzkieg Boyz and how they react to animals. mainly Kai telling and demonstrating.

Warning: ooc...I guess...or is it just Kai being more open? We all know he likes cats...what about other animals? Umm...rating may change...if I incorporate swear words...

Of Nekos and Neko-jins

The cat puffed up, arching its back and hissing at the advancing blonde who immediately froze.

"Retreat Max, the unknown party is clearly hostile," joked Michael. Most of the bladers had watched in amusement as Max had attempted to stroke the cat.

No-one was quite sure how, but the cat had become cornered and was presently surrounded by bladers from all the different teams. They were currently staying in a campground up in the mountains. The cat had been popping in and out the last few days, but no-one had gotten close to her.

"Here, let me show you how animals respond to a female's touch," boasted Mariah. "Move aside!" The other bladers willingly let her through.

The pink-haired girl carefully and slowly advanced towards the cat. She kept murmuring soothing sounds underneath her breath, hoping to calm the cat. It worked to an certain extent. The back came down, and the cat returned to normal size. But Mariah could tell that the cat was still tense. The girl slowly stretched out her hand, letting the cat sniff her fingers. The cat did so, then sat down, accepting the presence of the pink-haired girl.

There was a round of applause. The cat leapt to it's feet, but didn't advance, She simply stood still in the circle of humans.

Rei cautiously approached and the cat sniffed his fingers. She did display any signs of hostility, but like Mariah, the cat simply chose to accept, then ignore their presence.

"So," commented Kenny. "I guess you showed us how a cat reacts to a neko-jin's touch."

The bladers burst out laughing and Mariah blushed.

"What's going on here?"

The bladers turned to see Kai standing there, arms crossed and a raised eyebrow.

"Kai!" squeaked Tyson. "Why are you here?"

"You lot were making such a racket; you broke my concentration" Kai responded coolly.

"What were you concentrating on?" asked Robert with interest.

"Meditation" replied Kai in a dismissive tone. "So, what's all the fuss about?"

The teens parted ranks to allow Kai to see the cat and the two neko-jins crouched over it.

"It's just this cat Kai," said Mariah. She knew Kai wouldn't be interested in it. "She-"

The cat, seeing an opening dashed towards it, cutting Mariah's explanation short. Everyone was shocked beyond words when, instead of slowing down, the cat actually sped up and leapt upwards towards Kai…who easily caught her in his arms. The two-toned bluenette then proceeded to lift the cat up to his shoulder. The cat responded by draping itself around his neck, looking comically similar to Kai's scarf…which he hadn't been wearing.

"What about this cat?" asked Kai absently as he stoked the creature's head.

"-refuses to let anyone but the neko-jins near her…" Mariah finished lamely.

The others were too shocked to speak. Kai, Kai, the Ice-King, the fire-prince, the leave-me-alone-and-get-the-hell-out-of-my-way-or-I'll-kick-your-ass Kai…had just petted a cat! Tyson fainted.

"How…" began Rei. He couldn't continue.

"I like cats. They tend to like me."

Bump. Bump. Bump.

Three more bladers fainted. A frown crossed Kai's face. He was still stroking the cat and those nearest him could hear the previous aloof creature purring.

"What's wrong with that?"

"Kai…" said Rick slowly. "You're asking what's wrong…you have a live, purring cat wound around your neck – voluntarily – and you just admitted you like cats." Kai raised an eyebrow.

"…and this is strange because…" Rick slapped his forehead.

"This from the teen that avoids everything alive! Are you aware that that cat refused to go near Brooklyn!" Kai simply shrugged.

"I usually feed her. That's probably what she wants now." Having said that, he turned around and walked a few steps.

"If it helps at all," he announced, still with his back to the assembly, "I'm half Chinese. My mother was a neko-jin."

Thump. Thump. Thump. Thump.

The four neko-jins fainted. The rest just stood and stared, their mouths open.

"Guess it didn't help." Kai confided to the cat. The cat simply purred louder and nuzzled Kai's cheek. At this, two more bladers fainted. One of them being Brooklyn.


A/N:I just realized I have never been so random before...scary thought...seeing as my other fics have some blood and gore and torture and death in them...i'm scaring myself...please tell me what you think. and if I shouls continue. I have all but the beginning of chapter two and an outline for chapter three. Still unsure if I should post them. They're as random as this one. Just ideas that popped into my head the night (about midnight) before my three hour English exam...yeah...

Flames are most definitely waslcom, as is cc and pretty much anything. Pick a blader and an animal and I'll try and write a fic! (no mythical beasts or I'll stick them in "Fable of the Pheonix which may change it's name if I write more chapters...unrelated...)
