New Year’s Day

Rhea loves the feather wand toy.   I can just leave it sitting on the bed in front of her and watch her eyes get wider and wider and wider…

She’s so enamored that now that I am downstairs working she dragged the toy from the bedroom all the way down the stairs…then two thirds of the way upstairs and played there for a bit…then dragged it a third of the way down and left it.  Now she is running sprints from the garage to the bedroom and back like a maniac while Davout follows at a walk wondering what is going on.

It’s blurry because the bedroom is dark, but I like the whiskers and the yawn.

Anna is getting more playful with me, but when she’s done she’s done and jumps up to these shelves.  I closed the door to her room after another incident where Rhea and her ended up close and making noise.   I know Rhea will chase Anna if she runs away which is probably at least the trigger.  When I break things up Rhea doesn’t seem too angry at Anna.  I can even bring them close with Rhea facing the other way without either side reacting much.  While I had the chance I did the same with Davout and he was so funny…he was very limp and boneless, but he did his whispering hiss at me a few times.

It is a little disappointing that the mixing seems to have regressed, but there’s no rush if Anna doesn’t want to go out of her room for a little while longer.

Anna plays with the red rope.  After a few tries she decided she needed a better spot for defense than this couch.

She would pounce on the string, flip up the rug a bit, toss it up in the air.

She did this for a while then jumped up to the shelf.  I gave her some wet food that she seems to be eating more of.  A few weeks back she pretty much stopped eating that at all.  She did eat plenty of dry food so it isn’t like she was starving, but I wondered why the change.

Rhea, on the other hand, almost never gets tired of playing.


I got her to roll over a few times by moving the toy over her back.  Silly girl.

  2. Anna looks like a smaller cat in the pictures playing with the stringy. I thought she was a big kitty until you answered me several posts back. Such a sweet house full of tiny kitties you have! Happy new year to all of you!!
