I suppose this is a classic example of how anything – usually rubbish – which comes to hand, can be a great cat toy. Gabriel can play for up to an hour constantly and without my involvement (other than supplying the homemade cat toy).
He follows the usual domestic cat schedule: morning and evening activity (manic in his case) inline with the dawn and dust hunting behavior (crepuscular) of the North African wildcat with a snooze in the afternoon and with me at night. I think sleeps with me at night because he has to as I am sleeping. It is an adaptation to being domesticated and living with a human because the wild cat would hunt at night as well probably.
He’s snoozing right now on his condo. He also likes to be very close to me when I have a pee 😉 . In fact I think he wants to get into the toilet bowl when I am doing it! I have to prevent him. I thought about videoing it but changed my mind 🙂 .
He also likes to help out when I am doing his litter tray. He wants to jump in which somewhat interferes with the work at hand.
