Laid Back Rocky

videoWhen it was Rocky's turn to chase the laser, he was tired. Usually he is crazy and meows at it, but not today. I think watching everyone else wore him out.

Lucky's Turn

Terry visited Lucky and Rocky's house. They live out of town so she takes lots of pictures when she is there. Here Lucky has her trained to wave the laser light around. Rocky and he taught the baby human to chase it (as seen a few days ago at http://bloggingcat.blogspot.com/2008/03/everyone-loves-laser-light.html.) I think they have a lot of fun over that place.

Punkin Has Gloweye, too

Terry is watching her friend's cats, Punkin and Emmie. Punkin also has gloweye. Maybe its a sign of intelligence.

Gloweye is Worse than Redeye

Terry says humans have nothing over cats when it comes to redeye problems. Cats get more glow than humans with a camera flash. We have highly reflective eyes. Here's Rocky who keeps some pet humans with his adopted brother, Lucky.

Terry and Richard's daughter, Jenny and her family, are their pets. We cats try hard to keep the human kids all taken care of and in good homes.

Everyone Loves the Laser Light

video
Some say that cats are crazy and wild, especially with toys like the laser light. Humans can be just as crazy. Here is Lucky being amused by his playful pet human.

Jenny (my human's daughter), says Rocky, Lucky and Ashton all chase the laser light. Ashton learned how to chase it and slap at it by watching Rocky and Lucky do it, we think. They have taught this little human lots about playing and having fun, I think, as you can see in this movie taken yesterday.

Spring Has Sprung

They days are having more light and lots of dessert is noisy outside. I think they are saying, "Come chase me and eat me!" I love this time of year.

Just Call Me Uncooperative

Here I am with a pet human. No, I do not like to be held (except when a moth is on the wall and you are showing me). No, I will not pose for any photos at all! Yes, if you point a clicking box at me, I will immediately stop whatever cute thing I am doing.

Happy Easter

video
These great rolling things have sprung up all over the house. I like them better than balls. They are all wobbly and move real well and Terry says that she is always finding them in odd places.

They make an interesting sound when touched. Terry says most of them contain people treats but I have smelled a couple that have good things for cats in them, too!

(P.S. Of course, as soon as a clicking box is pointed at me, I am sure to stop playing with things.)

Looking for the Flashlight

Terry lost her flashlight. She looked under the sofa, then under the bed. She looked on the countertop and in the bathroom and the computer room under her chair. She has not found it yet, but we cats are glad to help her look and I follow along.

I loved when she looked under the bed. When she lifted the bed cover, I crawed under to help her look. She muttered something about how she could not see anything with me there, but I know she was glad for my help.

Hypnotic

Here I am on the master bed. I could sell beds, I think, Mostly, I would want to hypnotize all humans into doing my bidding.

Look deeply into my eyes....

She Did It Again

It happened again. It has been a long time since the last occurance. Myst was sound asleep on the sofa. It was the middle of the night. Terry had gotten up and gone into another room. She thought there would be no problem. The house was quiet. Everyone was asleep, after all.

Alas, it did not take 5 minutes before Myst realized that a DOOR WAS SHUT and he was clawing and meowing like it was the end of the world. Terry should know better than to close access to herself. Tch! Tch!

Yummy!

When Terry found that old picture of Dandelion yesterday, she found this other one of Myst and Lucky when they had lived together, raiding the fun water in the toilet.

Happy Birthday Today! Dandelion is 19!


Today in 1989, Dandelion was born to a calico mother. His siblings were an amazing group. One was short-haired and solid gray, another was a fluffy calico, but nobody looked exactly as he does.

Here is an old picture of him caught in the ungraceful act of yawning. The gray cat in the back is Snappy, his brother. Dandelion grew up to be a wise and good cat, a perfect companion for Jenny who was only 7 at the time. He loves strangers and children. Dandelion is my hero.

Had a Vet Appointment

I went to the vet yesterday. It was time for my regular checkup on my triaditis condition. My vet was happy to see me. Tests showed that it is in remission and I am doing well. I do take a pill every day and probably will for the rest of my life, but I am used to it.

Lightning Storm

A big storm was moving in. Myst was looking out of the kitchen window as the sky turned from morning light to dark all in a few minutes. The rain and wind had not hit yet. A few bolts of lightning flashed out of the sky.

You should have seen Myst's eyes! They seemed bigger and wider than mine! He watched the lightning in fascination, perhaps because he loves to chase the laser light and flashlight beams and maybe he thought this would be fun.

Then, BOOM!!! Thunder came very loud. Rain poured down. Myst said, "Forget this!" and ran for his deep dark hiding spot under the sofa. I just sat there watching the whole thing and Dandelion slept. I expect we will not see Myst for most of today. Myst can be pretty amusing sometimes.

Play and Rest

Nothing like a good patch of sun after a moment of teasing my humans. I went into the kitchen, stretched on the wall and clawed a little at the wallpaper.

Terry said, "Hey you! Stop that!" and came over to me. I tossed my head playfully and ran down the hall until she caught me and petted me until I purred. Hmmmm, I will have to scratch the wall again soon.

P.S. My eyes are really this blue. No photo enhancements were used on them.

Waiting me out.

Here is Myst, just waiting for me to wake up. When I jump down, the chase will be on. I plan to fool him, though. I can outsleep him. Yep, I will just stay here and sleep a LOOOOONG time and get up after he gives up and moves along.

Myst and Me

Here's Myst and me, playing in the hall after I had run up and down, trying to get him to chase me. It worked but we have moved on to other distractions.

Pesky Myst

Myst is picking on me a LOT! He comes up and randomly bites me (not hard, but in a VERY annoying manner). I cry out and complain about it and my pet humans will come save me from him.

Terry says I am twice his weight. I should whap him back. She says I can jump higher than him and can easily sit out of reach. Instead I just fuss and fume. Well, why not? It brings my humans running and they pet me and brush me and give me all kinds of attention. Seems like a good working plan to me.

Sleep

This is the best thing to do on a rainy day. Or a sunny day. Even a foggy or snowy day. In fact, it is my favorite past time every day.

Myst Goes Into Hiding

Myst went a whole day without sleeping up here. In fact, he was nowhere to be found. We all missed him. The tiny human who stayed with us overnight probably did it. Myst gets real scarce at those times and goes into deep dark hiding.

What in the heck is this stuff?

Some kind of soft light stuff was outside today. We do not see this often in Alabama. I wonder if it tastes good or is fun to chase.

Any Second Now

Any second now, he is going to move. When he does, he is going to get it. He better run FAST, cause I am full of energy and ready for a good chase.

"Late" Whatever That Is

I do not understand what "late" means, but Terry was that this morning. I guess it means a human will be running up and down the hall, grabbing things, dropping things and running more. It was very amusing and we watched with wide eyes.

Playing Paws

Still having fun with doorways. Loving a good game of "paws" as Jenny calls it. This toy spider ring was fun to kick around.

Myst Watches for Terry

Nobody was happier to see Terry come home than Myst. She had been gone for 3 days. He never left her side for the next 24 hours.

Of course, at first we would not let her touch us until we had a very good and VERY long sniffover. Myst even clamped a paw down on her wrist so she would not move until he was done with inspecting. He is very strong. She did not move the whole time he was checking her out.
