There is rarely a dull moment in a house with cats. Do anyone else’s cats have mad half hours?
I often wonder why they are called that as it doesn’t even take our Walter 5 minutes to wreck our living room, he goes so crazy sometimes that poor Jozef just runs for cover.
The covers and cushions on the furniture fly as he jumps from couch to armchair, the rug gets bundled up, the scratching boards get upended, the toy box tipped over and mice and balls scattered all over.
It’s even more fun for our cats since they discovered tissue paper is wonderful to hide toys under, then to spring on them and bite holes and make bits of paper fly.
The man in the shop where we buy it must wonder what we do with so much lol. It amuses me how cats suddenly lose interest in something (unless they are watching a mouse or a bird of course when they can sit for hours). Walter creates chaos then strolls off and leaves us to tidy up.
Jozef doesn’t often play alone like Walter does, he likes us to play with him, all of the games on here: Simple games with cats are fun.
But he has his funny little ways too, he can’t bear to see a used saucer uncovered, even if there is only one tiny bit of food left on it he will cover it with anything in reach. So now when we feed him we put down a square of kitchen roll and he works until this tarpaulin is placed neatly over the saucer. If he discovers Walter’s saucer he will use anything to cover that too.
So you can imagine if anyone is coming visiting how we have to zoom around and make the place look tidy again lol but anyone who doesn’t like cats isn’t welcome anyway.
It’s rare that our boyz play together and it usually ends in tears if they do, they are such a pair of ruffians, but how dull our lives would be without our feline friends, wouldn’t they!
