Just a few minutes ago I heard Rhea pipe up and saw this … she brought her toy right up to me for some playtime.
She got what she wanted, and I got a nice picture!
A bit earlier it was Anna’s turn. She did make a few checks for interlopers at the door but once satisfied there were none she went all out into playing.
She alternated going high for the string toy, and going low when I pulled its end under a bit of carpet. She’d wait until it vanished to dive after it.
When she got too worked up in her cubby, she jumped up onto the sofa for more.
She especially liked the dangling string from below.
Then there was scratching at the door. Anna jumped to the back of the sofa above the doorway and I cracked the door a little and Rhea kept wedging herself in. Anna would hiss at her, but didn’t run off. Rhea would back off, then squeeze back in.
This might have gone on longer, but Davout took this chance to rush up and bite Rhea on the butt. This broke the mood for Rhea…and might be why she wanted her own personal playtime just afterward.
