Kitten Playtime

Don’t you wish you could move like this! And if we could summon up this kind of joie de vivre on our own–well, hum baby!

The bed reminds me, though, of when Robbie and Peep were kittens. One day they seemed to disappear, and we couldn’t find them anywhere. Although I’d looked under the bed before, I gave it another try, this time with a flashlight–and was startled to be looking at a pair of little round heads with pointy ears… upside-down. For they had managed to burrow into the box spring and were now peering out of the hole they’d made to get in.

You never know what cats will do next.

    One thing I love about cats is how they can make almost anything into a toy. Paper bag = cat toy. Broken off piece of a tortilla chip = cat toy. Deceased insect = cat toy. Shadow on the floor = cat toy. Shoelace of person walking by = cat toy. 🙂

    One of my cats did the same thing! I went looking and there he was – peeking upside down from the hole he’d made in the bottom of the box spring! I had to get creative and use garden fencing around the bottom of the bed for fear he would really get stuck in the springs! 🙂

    My mother used to say that cats have the ability to disappear into the fifth dimension until they get tired of watching you frantically searching for them, at which point they materialize in the middle of the room — or in the place where you first started looking for them.
