TBT HERE: It seems time to answer a few questions. So here we go...
Summer mentioned (about the mirror kitty) that That looks like fun! Sparkle hated mirror kitty. I think she is pretty! We thought she meant Ayla's mirror kitty at first. Then realized she meant her own mirror-kitty. Yes, Summer, your mirror-kitty is beautiful! As you are.
Memories Of Eric And Flynn mentioned The boys had ping pong balls in the bath which they used to bat around. We soon learned to take them out at night!
We did ping-pong balls in the tub too. Same results. The sink made it much quieter though.
The J-Cats said “my brothers mostly go there when there are dishes with tasty food remnants there, waiting to be washed up.”
I just drown all the dishes at night and put them in the dishwasher the next morning when I’m lazy. The Mews don’t get to lick them much. I use a lot of spices and I’m never sure about what spices are safe for them.
Several readers were concerned about Laz falling 12’ from the deck. Well, he lands better than I did from the ladder and on 4 feet. He is fearless. He willing jumped off the deck to chase a squirrel a day before.
Neither event bothered him in the slightest.
“Easy Like Sunday” had many people happy. I was happy too. It was a rare event. The good news is that Ayla is asserting herself. And I am beginning to thing that Laz mostly just wants to play but hasn’t learned how with Ayla.
Things seem calm again. When Laz gets too close, she hisses. Lately, he backs away after that. They will never be friends, but maybe he is learning not to be so aggressive. Laz and Marley get along great!
And yes, food is soothing to all…
Many commenters asked about “mousies” vs “voles”. The Mews consider ALL of them “mousies” in the generic sense. The distinctions are minor (small, furry, grabbable, and pouncable). But I learned about some differences I had NOT understood before.
On Twofur Tuesday, several people mentioned the warm laundry or the bloo towel in the drawer. I do not mind cat fur on my clothes. After years, cat fur is part of my life. Though I do sometimes put a towel over the underwear drawer when I offer it for cat-naps. Cat fur on the outside of my clothes is just such a routine part of my life, LOL! I don’t even TRY to avoid it anymore.
