Hobbies

Abby: We are cats, and we have many hobbies. Like humans and other creatures, we enjoy the pursuit of happiness, but even more so, we enjoy the pursuit of each other! As you can see, Stygia is very tempted by my posture to make her next ninja-move as I dangle my ears and whiskers precariously over Mr. R's chair-seat:

When I clean, I spend a lot of time biting at this paw-pad:

Right after anyone takes a shower, I love to hop right into the tub and sit right down. Part of the fun is watching the water-droplets move like little living bugs down the side of the sliding doors and the sides of the tub. Also, the floor of the tub is always nice and warm! One of her friends told Ms. C that I am "a bathroom monster in training." What does that mean?

Stygia: No one is going to admit to doing this. We both love to play with mice, we both carry them all over the house, so I can't tell you who did this. And even if I could, I would not! Cat's honor.

Finally, we have a lot of sun here, and as it moves through the living room, I move with it, even squishing ears if necessary, to get the most out of it:

Some smart hobbies for some smart cats! Abby, we love the first shot, Siena does that position too and the attack follows ensuite. And Stygia, superb squishing!!!


PS.: We mailed you yesterday, hopefully the images weren't too big?!

That's weird. Cliff does the shower thing too, but the humans think it's because of the warmth.

Great pictures!

Putting mice in the water (even the 'less mobile' ones) ensures they won't be causing any trouble in the future!

Tubs are nice caves (so I've heard).

Re: the paw photo--for a second there, I thought you had a shaved, leopard skin tummy.

Those were great photos! Especially you in the shower! Our Sebastian used to do that too, when he was a kitten. He was fascinated with the water drops.

Those hobbies should keep you out of trouble...or maybe not!!

I love your water bowl, girls! I want one like that to drop my mice in, too! Stygia, I'd like to curl up next to you in that most excellent sunspot..I can feel the heat of your furs from here!

Very fascinating hobbies! My mom used to live in a place where the shower/tub had ceramic walls and shelf above the shower where she kept shampoo and showering stuff. I used to love to leap from the edge of the bathtub up onto to ceramic shelf while mom had her eyes closed washing her hair. It used to freak her out. Maybe that is what a "bathroom monster" is..a cat who likes being in the shower freaking the mom out?

I love the mouse in the water! Hahaha...one way to get fresh water.

EEEEEk! An orange mouse in the water bowl......thank goodness we know where our orange mousie went when Ty sent it, UNDER THE DOOR! Ty loves laying on his back like you Abby.=^Y^=the Cat Street Boyz
