My cats have loved the sparkle balls I got years ago from a fabric store.
My first introduction to the sparkle balls was in a cat toy Christmas stocking. They self-destructed in days. Hence, the hunting expedition for a suitable substitute. The 48 balls survived the ravages of energetic cat play for years. Now only 27 remained.
What happened to the other 21? Not sure. The vacuum cleaner may have gobbled up a few. A litter box casualty that got buried. Didn’t get scooped because it was washing day for the litter boxes.
There were 3 larger ones that Lily liked. They are missing. One escaped outside, must have got kicked out when we opened the backdoor. Are they under the washer, freezer, or dropped behind the bookshelf? For now, the 3 are MIA.
Is Your Indoor Cat Bored?
Is your cat sleeping more than usual and packing on the pounds?
Time to make note of the waking hour activities. Is he/she begging for food or listless most of the time?
Bored cats use food to fill the boredom.
Challenge your cat’s mind with interactive toys. Even just a new toy with unfamiliar smells will stimulate their curiosity.
Cats love to explore empty boxes. Continue reading
Cats help to heal
I adore cats. After Molly’s death in May 2020, the loneliness of not hearing those purrs and meows became overwhelming.
Life kept us busy during May, June, and July, so not having 4 legged little ones around made it easier. But as the summer dragged on, the missing laughter that the little creatures bring became intense.
December 5, 2020, rolled around, and we picked up our first bundle of joy. Lily a 9-month-old chocolate point Siamese. Winning her over took a while. A year later and she has become a blessing. She has her only little quirks, and we adjust to her whims. (link)
Hard to believe Lucy celebrated her first birthday on 9-17-2021. We brought her home exactly 8 months ago. Two-thirds of her short life, has been with us. Sad when they start to get bigger and not a cute little bundle of fur as when you bring them home. We all know baby animals are so adorably cute, hard to resist. She was such a tiny little kitten, just a handful. Home coming.
And if you’re familiar with Siamese, you know they never quite grow up. Now she is still a handful of mischief. Do love every minute of it… well maybe not sometimes as you can read below. But keeping them healthy and inspired with fun things to do, they can bring you hours of laughter and joy.
She has graced our home with laughter and love. A happy, comical cat, and also mischievous.
Saved many cat toys over the years. They received mild abuse, but most never used.
Then Lily joined us 8 months ago and Lucy 6 ½ months.
I dragged them out of boxes stored from our move 6 years ago. Our then 10-year-old Molly only played with a few. No point in having them scattered on the floor when she wasn’t interested. Continue reading
