About Saphira and toys... (from Saphira's dad)

I have mentioned on this diary and her sisfur Saphira's how playful and toy oriented both of them are, a very common Ocicat trait. It is one of the most delightful things about these wonderful kitties, along with the fact that they let us sleep all night without any wee hours wakeup calls! When I say "toys", I normally refer to typical kitty toys, like fuzzy mouse toys and various toy on a stick kitty teasers. One of my human grandkids received a remote controlled helicopter toy for his birthday, and had left it over at our place so grandpa could try to figure out why it was not flying quite right. I had left it on an end table in our living room, which also happens to be a favorite hangout for the felines, with a nice big bay window letting in lots of sun and giving them nice views of the birds and other critters outside. Also has some really nice soft couches and easy chairs where they love to nap.

The other week I went into the room to check out the whirlychopper, and it was missing! I also noticed that an open package that held a couple of fuzzy mouse toys that had been on the same table was also gone. In the past Viola has often taken various kitty toys from one room to another to play with them, and I found the box of kitty toys (empty!) on the floor near the table I had a pretty good idea of who might have been responsible. Still no helicopter! I looked everywhere it might have landed if it fell off the table, no luck! Widening the search, I finally found the missing aircraft in the adjacent entry hall, on the other side of an oak railing that separates the entry from the living room. The helicopter was far enough away from the table where I left it that there was NO way it could have fallen off and landed there. The only possible explanation is that a certain young Chocolate Spotted Ocicat I know picked it up and carried it there. As smart as she is, we are lucky she did not figure out how to turn it on and try to fly it! When I do fly it, they are VERY interested in the operation and I have to make sure I keep it away from either of them, lest it be mistaken for an attacking critter and brought down.

I once said of our girls that they are the most amusing cats to ever own us, now you see why!
