Hot and Cold

Another hot night, but the kittens wanted to play anyway.  Davout was giving me the big eyes for a while.

He got first shot for the minute or so it took until Rhea came over from across the room.

But he had his shots in between Rhea’s cavorting.

Rhea did some jumping and spinning.  I kept an eye to see if she was getting warm and give her some rest.  She had to rest after this shot.

Hot Night

It was a hot day today, about 100 degrees, and it has only cooled a little even now at 10 pm.  The cats stayed in the cooler tiled areas a lot and didn’t do much, but when the toy showed up.

The excitement soon brought Davout over for a look.

I set up across the box again, but on the other side from before.

At first it worked out well….

And Davout had his turn too…

High Efficiency

Davout is so busy these days he needs to increase efficiency.  Here he scratches with three paws, bites the nails close on the fourth….

When the claws are done, there’s still cleaning his coat while still scratching…

Let the Game Begin!

I made up a new game, using the upturned Costco Box as a place to move the lure of the wand toy.  It makes an interesting rustling sound as it moved a little bit.

The other interesting part is the box is a little too high for easy watching.

Rhea has to stand on tiptoe to peer over…

Davout is a little taller, but still has to stretch some.

Sometimes a look over the sides is in order.

Back to Basics

So I dispensed with yesterday’s bad plan.  So it was back to the toys!

Davout was interested!

Rhea was even alarmed!

Bad Plan

Instead of the tried and true cat toy session I tried to get pictures in other ways.  Rhea was sleeping here and looked cute, but got up when I got close.

Davout is giving me a wide berth because he thinks I might cut his hair again.

And there isn’t much light over there.

Kits and Toys Again

They just love the wand toy!  And it gives me a way to get them into the light for pictures.  I actually left the toy out last night but Rhea didn’t look for it.

With Davout these days it is almost the only way to catch him for a brushing or to wipe his crusty eyes down.  He does have fun with it.

Going for the catch!!!

And she has it!

Sensitive Fellow

Today was jarring to Davout because instead of doing stuff that I usually do, I did something entirely different.  I hung out in a different room upstairs rather than going downstairs most of the day.

He came up a few times and peeked in the door but soon gave it up and went downstairs.

Rhea was fine, napping nearby in this room or poking around while I worked.

When I pulled out the toy for playtime, he was really reluctant to play.  He hung back far away, then inched closer….

Weekender

A thoughtful moment from Rhea….

The other day, I put this shoebox by the garage door to be thrown out because nobody was using it.  Yesterday late I heard some noises from that direction and Rhea was using it for a box fort.  She broke down the side so she could poke a paw out at Davout.
