Pepper Possessor

Nobody takes the pepper toy from Sherman.

Some might be plotting, but they will not succeed.

Grant Getting About

First Grant hung out on the other side of the bookshelf with Rhea watching the action in the living room…

Then he wormed his way into Davout’s bed during washup time and got a free bath from the big fellow…

Smug Kitty

Exciting Emptiness

I moved an old monitor I stashed under the desk in the dining room into the garage.  For some reason this released an orgy of four cat chasing games around the house.  They calmed down a bit later.

More play with the ribbon toy.  Davout is way too possessive still, holding and dragging it and growling at all and sundry.  He used to do this with the feathers some too, and has calmed down a lot since.

He was a little better on the chair…but still holds and grabs rather than holds and lets go.

New Toy

Recently I picked up a new wand toy.  This one was from Jackson Galaxy, the cat guru himself.  It had a plastic ‘snake’ end on it. Other ends are available for it.

The wand itself is nice – it is a telescoping metal pole with a thin wire connection to the toy. This should keep it from being tangled, and I’ve had wire cat toys before – the original Cat Dancer was a favorite for a long time to a lot of cats.

The plastic toy was less of a favorite – it was big and think and heavy, and the cats seemed part cautious about it.  Its heavy weight made it seem risky to move quickly, lest it hit things. I think the idea is for cats who like things pulled flat across the floor to use this, but mine seem to like the vertical game.

Luckily, the ends are switchable and I have some around for the other wand toys – they all seem to use compatible ends.

Marshal D looks poised for now…

Tables Turned

Brotherly Love

I apologize for the limited posting, but as the boys got better I got sicker and even came home early from work on Friday and more or less spent all the time since time under all the covers I could find.

I did see this cute sight today.  I’m pretty sure it is the first time they’ve been this cozy.  Grant has been rubbing up against Davout when he walks by a lot, too.

Crazy Combat

Either the fiber capsules helped or Sherman’s own body is gaining the upper hand, since I saw no sign of accidents.  He was very eager to play…he is into chasing the feather all around, skidding on the floor when trying to turn.  This tends to make the others a bit wary of getting too close.

Cleanup

Rhea avoided any potty mishaps.  Sherman had a bit of a mess but it was restricted to just his bottom.  I added some fiber to his food and we will see if hat helps.

He doesn’t seem to be feeling any other effects of the issue – he’s active and alert

With some other things coming up, I’m using some old pictures not published yet.

Messy Day

Today Rhea needed to get a bottom bath.  She’s got some runny poo stuck in her fur and she needed to get it cleaned off.  She wasn’t happy, and Sherman was in the room with her looking very concerned as she carried on.

Late yesterday Sherman had his own incident and needed some poo cut out of his tail fur too.  I wondered if he was off because of a different flavor of cat food, so I swapped back to turkey.  With Rhea sick too, there might be a bug about. Continue reading

Kitten Time

There was a lot of kitten playtime today, but all the good shots where when they were still.  Grant poised to pounce…

Sherman looks like one of those velvet painting cats with the big eyes.

Proof that there was a toy involved.
