Spike in a Box

Spike has been a happy cat for several days this week. We picked up an HP printer at Costco for a great price last week and as soon as hubby had unpacked the printer, Spike quickly laid claim to the box. First, he jumped into the box from the coffee table and then flipped it over on the side. He sat for awhile, looking out, and then started to roll around in the box. We had to pull him out so we could move the box out of our way and then decided to put it in the dining room for a couple of days until he lost interest.

After four days, he was still going in there on a regular basis but unfortunately we had decided to return the printer and needed the box back. Again...tip the box...dump cat out on floor...and see aggrieved look on cat face!

The best places to stretch out in

It turns out that the great little wicker cat beds that Lady Gray and Fergie were sleeping in last week are actually wicker laundry baskets from Michaels. Take one wicker laundry basket, add soft blanket and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove look of surprise from face when furry inhabitant peeks out of basket!

I was mentioning this great idea to a friend at work ..who happened to have cats with a wide variety of taste in resting spots. Winston loves the plastic laundry baskets..and scorns the specially purchased cat tent right beside the laundry basket. Fynn has a soft spot for the great outdoors ..and enjoys the coolness of fresh, green grass. When they decide to kip down together - a cosy box is the abode of choice!

We are always watching

Curious cats...when they are not sleeping, they are watching what is going on.

Spike swivels around so that he can see any of the woofies ...but he is rarely close enough to them to worry. As you can see from the angle of the photo he is on one of his many "high" spots where he can look down upon us all.

Angel is more direct - he looks right at us when he sees the camera come out. He has such an "in your face" look that has been perfected over many years!

A lazy afternoon

Fall has started with beautiful, warm days ... just right for a quick cat nap here and there. My friend in Ontario is also lucky enough to have a great start to Fall and her kitties seem to have the same natural instincts as ours...find a warm nest or friendly human to curl up with.
