Our Christmas Present

Well, as some of you know, Mom didn't buy us any new toys. Instead, she promised to play with us more and dig out some of our old toys. That worked pretty good. But, the best thing she did was to take our tunnel, attach one end of it to the first level of our cat tree, and drape some old towels over it. So, we ended up with kind of a tent. One of us hides in the tent and attacks the other kitty as she walks by. Or, one of us sits on the first level of the cat tree, and the other hides in the tent. Then we bat at each other with only the paws of the kitty in the tent showing from below. It has been great fun and we have played with it all week! We have even surprised Lobo from our tent as he walks by. Here is a picture of the arrangement:
Our Christmas Present
We have also had a lot of fun with a paper bag. Usually me hiding in it and Squirrel not letting me out of it! Can't let the cat out of the bag!
Happy New Year to everyone! And play with your kitties, we love it.

 

Mom made us the bestest toy!

We were looking a bit bored the other day so Mom got creative. She dug out a pair of her old undies, one of the ones she keeps for rags. She cut them up into a square. She rolled up some catnip in them and then tied it all into a knot. Then she sprayed it with water and gave it to us. Squirrel & I played and played with it all day long! In between, we were so wired with catnip that we had little scraps. The next day, we were still playing with it and play fighting with each other. Eventually, I untied the knot, licked up the catnip and rubbed the undies all over my face. They had been washed but I could still smell some of Mom's stink on them. I'm one of those kitties that likes the smell of dirty laundry. Mom promises to make us another toy like that soon. But our catnip tub is empty. Time for another trip to the pet store!

 

My Bad ...

Some of you know I am a bathroom cat. I always follow Mom in there to help her with her toilet habits, etc. Today, she felt chilled and went for a hot bath. Sometimes she reads in there and takes too long, so I jump up on the edge and encourage to get out. Lately, she has been ignoring me, so I have started to take very careful steps right on to her big belly! That makes her a bit nervous, and me too because if she has soaped up, it is slippery. Today, I added a new twist. I started kneading on her bare skin. She found that too much to take as my claws are very sharp. So she lifted me off and put me back on the edge of the tub. I then went to rub up against a bottle of shampoo and it fell in. This threw me off balance and I started to fall in too. I was only saved from getting wet by putting out my left front paw and pushing off on Mom's face. I accidentally scratched her. Mom said, "How am I going to explain this one at work?" She has a scratch on her cheek. She has been looking at me funny since then. I think she is waiting for an opportunity to catch me off guard and trim my precious claws!

 

Boring

I was looking bored today so Mom brought out a toy I had not seen in months. My bungee birdie! So, I am having fun with that right now. Mom is watching to make sure I don't get tangled up in it. And she put a carpet underneath so I can have a softer landing for my airborne tricks. She is noticing that I don't jump as high as when I was younger. She says it is because I am a bit too chubby. Well she isn't as fleet of foot as she used to be and for the same reason, plus she is getting old. But anyhow, this toy was exactly what I needed to relieve my boredom. Squirrel naps all morning while I want attention. Then, I nap in the afternoon and Squirrel wants attention. Mom wishes we would play at the same time. Squirrel & I do play together in the evening.

 

Lobo is feeling better and letting me show my love again!

It has been a long while since Lobo let me rub up against him and love him up. He has been feeling ill since April. Mom took this video two days ago and my auntie Lilian played the music for it. Squirrel was there too grooming herself.

Just Found Out Tonight!

We just found out tonight that I like to be brushed! Mom dug out the brush she used to try and use on Fuzzy and used it on me. I loved it! So now I can understand what the kitties that like being brushed are talking about.

 

Lobo is feeling better!

Finally. I'm able to cuddle with Lobo again. For many months he didn't like me around him. He just wasn't feeling well. The last while, I am able to rub up against him again and he gives me little flea bites. Mom took a video of us cuddling today. She took that as a sure sign that he is feeling good again. He even let me play with his ears. Video isn't on Youtube yet but will be sometime soon.
Mom bought me a new laser pointer. I never had a good one. The one Lucky used to have was pretty well broken by the time I got here. The other, just goes in circles by itself. This new one, Mom has to run it and can make it go wherever she wants. It is way more fun. And when it is not on, it just sits there and looks like a mouse with whiskers and everything! The reason Mom finally bought me one was that she found herself at the pet store to find a new collar for Lobo! His old one mysteriously vanished. While she was there, she FINALLY remembered to buy me a laser pointer. Thank you Lobo!

 

Do your people rotate their tires?

Well, Mom just rotated our cat tree!!!
We wore out the bottom part of our cat tree. Mom didn't have the money for a new one. So, she moved the worn out part to level three and moved level three down to level one.
cat tree rotation
What do you all think?
We are still very suspicious and have not played on it yet. But she just did that a half hour ago.
She was very sneaky and did this while we were out in our cat run.

 

Guess What? Guess What?

A really big truck came to our house and a nice man brought us a package. In the package was not only our replacement bird feeder ... BUT TWO OF THEM!!!
Our New Bird Feeders!!
Mom and I couldn't believe it. Maybe they knew two kitties lived here and thought we should have two bird feeders???
We are very happy. Okay Mom! Put one up right now!

 

The Story About Our Bird Feeder ...

Remember when we got our new bird feeder last fall and how excited we were? This is a video from then:
The Bird Feeder When it Was New
Well, a few days ago, Mom was lowering it to refill it and the wire inside the feeder broke and it fell to the ground and broke. The part that broke was the metal part at the bottom where the little birdies perch on. And, the wire inside pulled loose. We were all upset. Especially Mom because she had replaced our plastic one (which after many years was cooked by the sun and broke into a million pieces when the bear smashed it) with a very expensive metal one. And she spent a lot of time and money to hang it so that the bears couldn't get at it. It cost over three times what the plastic ones cost. Anyhow, Mom went and bought just a plastic one to replace it because she couldn't find her receipt from last fall. But, it was still bugging Mom. So, she went back to the store with both feeders, the new one and the broken one, and asked if there was anything they could do for her. They still sold the expensive ones so they could see what brand it was and how much it cost. But, without a receipt, hmmm. The nice man called the company that sold them. He explained the story to them. Then he handed the phone to Mom and the lady from the company took her name and our address and is sending us a new one in the mail!!! Isn't that nice?
The store Mom bought it from is Rona, a home building supply store up here. The bird feeder is the "Birdscapes Watchtower Feeder". Mom will be sending them a big thank you and a link to our video to show how happy their feeder makes us kitties, and the birdies too! And she returned the unused plastic one. She had the receipt for that since she only bought it yesterday.
