Tuckered Out

You know how I have been working on my closet?? Still in work, but almost under control.

In the meantime, BoyCat and GirlCat have been quite manic. I think they are interested and excited to see the environment change. They love novelty--But--what if Mama throws out the cats with the stuff? This could be bad!!

So I have distracted them from standing in the way of progress, calmed them down, and increased their fun through BRIBERY. They have been playing with a filmy spangled scarf I planned to throw away. My mom sent it to me for Halloween one year--for what character, I don't know. If you drape it over a cat, they can see through it and yet they are deliciously hidden at the same time! Oh, my gosh! They have been pouncing on each other and running around, all because of this scarf.

The other layer of junk on top of this flat file is a long, crackly piece of packing paper and an Ace Hardware bag. Same thing--hide and seek, tearing, wrinkling, crackling, and finally, after a hard day's play:


The bag and crackly paper will wear out by the end of this weekend. I think the scarf is now a permanent cat toy.
My superstars. LOL.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Too cute! Cats are ever fascinating...and one suspects they are ever plotting some path via which to achieve world domination. Good thing you have the scarf :-D

I'm not a cat person, but boy are they hilarious to watch play. My cousin had a cat who would chase a ball of tin foil forever. They had hardwood floors & the cat would do skidding & bang into the wall. Repeatedly. I was great entertainment.

Nothing like a great CAT STORY to send the week away with a smile.
Love the scarf (as do they, obviously)...cute!

Our cats like grocery bags (paper, not plastic, thank God)

And they're more spoiled than a democrat with a blank check...LOL!

They have their own "tunnel", playtime cubes,AND Kitty condo/beach house!
(rolls eyes)...I know.

But at least they don't have their PAWS out to the government for "assistance", eh?

Have a fantastic weekend!

Too cute, two tired kitties--what a good looking pair!

Note they are lying on the scarf, to make sure that it doesn't get away.

Thanks for sharing the cuteness.
