Christmas Poster?

I’m not much into decorating the house, since the cats don’t mind either way.  I do have this little ornament that fits right in.  Rhea was just woken up, so she sat still for pose for quite a while.

They discovered this tabletop the other day and since there isn’t anything to mess up I let them stay there.  There’s hiding spots under it, and the big cats tend to leave it alone.  The kittens have taken over the margins while the big boys hang out in the center.  There are a few cubbies that a kitten can hide in when they get tired..or they can retreat upstairs.

There’s almost no trouble now, even with Julie.  He has been checking the kittens out closely a time or two.   The kittens are pretty wary, as he has spat at them before and even made a half-hearted swat.  But they aren’t afraid.

But this is what had be going over to the table in the first place yesterday.  Kitten puddles!

I saw them resting nearby at times in their safe room, but not this close.  They have followed this up with many more since then.  It has been a while since any of my cats have been quite so close – probably the two girls before Angelina died in 1997.

I didn’t take any pictures, but on Saturday I tried using “Da Bird” with the kittens.  Rhea was a bit cautious, but Davout went crazy for it, running and jumping.  When he caught it, he tried to carry the feather lure into a corner, growling/grunting around the thing in his mouth.

Usually he defers to Rhea, but not this time.  He would bowl her over and land on her if she didn’t clear the way.  She is used to being the bold one, but not this time.

I got a Christmas card and a stocking full of cat toys from my Vets.  That was nice!

    I’ve kept my eye out for Da Bird with no luck so far 😦 I did, however, get a toy that seams similar… A plastic wand with feathers and corn husks tied to the end. Addycat likes it a lot but I wish the string between the two was longer. It’s maybe 3 inches long which makes playing difficult (for me not Addy)
