Games for Two

But not at the same time.  But Davout is very good about taking turns.

They start with simple swatting at the seed pod…

Ditto….

Then the all-out lunge for the prize!

Ditto!!

Snips and Snails

Pineapple Upside Down Cat.

Earlier I went outside to find Davout practicing his lurking skills.  Where’s Waldo?

When I spotted him he moved to another place of concealment.

Rhea thinks this is hilarious!

Pet Pest Control

It is always good to give your kittens a marketable skill to ensure their futures…

I started on this on the weekend when I started playing with Davout with a stem of honeysuckle that had grown wild.  They didn’t react to the plant very much, because there was another factor.  Somebody had coughed up a hairball on the stem earlier, and there were three or four files attracted to the wet spot on the stem.

Davout really wanted to get those flies.

Missed!

Rhea soon noticed the flies too.

More Grass

I have more pictures from the fight with the grass frond from yesterday…first ones of the kittens following the target with their eyes.

…trying to get Rhea to jump for the grass.

Davout was a little easier to get to jump for it!  He likes to do it and doesn’t care how it looks.

Rhea prefers to stand on her dignity for a lot longer.

Kittens and the Grass Tail

Another hot day but we got some evening clouds. It cooled off some and I picked a grass seed stem to play with.

It cannot be resisted.

Talk to the Claw.

Kitty Tongue!

Hot Town

Its hot tonight.  Rhea is staying by the open window.  There’s a shuttling fan nearby but this spot is out of the direct flow.

This spot isn’t.  Poor Davout keeps getting his fluff blown into his face when the breeze comes.

Pictures of Davout

Today was the day dedicated for a solo photoshoot startting…Davout!

Nice.  I especially like how that foreground prop really sets off your dark points.  Where did you find that?

Oh.

Director?  Does this look casual enough for you?  Totally natural!

Nothing forced about this pose!

Squishing an ear and sideways head makes me 37 percent cuter!  And the paw curl adds even more!!

Cats Out Back

It was a bit of an outside day today.  Julie even stayed around, because there was a neighborhood council meeting in the pool which the cats found more scary than a dozen splashing and screaming children.

Every so often one of the cats would get nervous and run inside.  When Rhea did it, everyone followed her.  When Julie or Davout did, not so much.

But when the scare was over, they came right back out!

What was that?

Sleepy Time

The cats were worn out today.  Julie was hiding in his shoebox.

I’m not sure why he’s giving out such a dirty look.  He’s actually nice!

Rhea and Davout got into a little bit of a fight, but broke it up when I brought out the camera.  Thus the rumpled fur.

Sunday Pictures

Well, not quite.  This is from Saturday after the other pictures.  Sometimes she seems so big but then she sits like this and seems to be so small.

Julie came right up to get a picture…

But Davout needed some incentive to get closer.

Thus the shoestring!
