Lisa Playing

Any time the sun is shining brightly through our windows Lisa get very excited and wants to play. I’m not sure how this game of hers got started but she sure does get vocal when chasing the sunlight!

I use a double sided mirror to reflect the sun’s light, the HUGE sunbeam is the magnification side of the mirror.

Please, if you are going to try playing with your cat in this way remember:

Keep the light off from the cat’s face and eyes. Just like we aren’t supposed to stare into the sun, the same precaution goes with this reflected sunlight.

Before you try this you may want to practice directing the reflection of light without your cat present at first. Just to make sure you have good control of this powerful fun beam!

Leaf piles are a great part of fall, as long as you make sure the leaves don’t contain doggy doo doo.Leaf Pile KittiesSorry for not posting a drawing yesterday, I just wasn’t feeling in a good way so I ¬†slept for a long time. I really did want to do one drawing each day for this inktober thing but oh well.

If my cats could fly this is what they would look like when they come jumping out of the bushes to greet me.Jump winged catIts quite a bit less detailed, i guess i just wasn’t in the mood to do more with this. I still like the idea though : )

He dashes across the screen, looks up with whiskers posed towards the prey. With one great leap into the air he finally captures the toy mouse!

Nice Guy makes an appearance in this video as he acts as the immovable object and Kyoko acts as the unstoppable force!

Our cat scratching post has taken a lot of abuse over the past 3 years. It was in pretty sad condition, with just shredded scraps of carpet hanging to the bones of the post.

Today I finally got inspired to repair the scratching post and give it renewed life!
Here is two of our main post frequenters, Lisa and Kyoko showing their approval of the new carpet adorning the post.

I used an old rug to replace the deceased carpeting, it took me at least 2 hours to complete the whole process of measuring, cutting out carpet and removing the old super dusty ripped carpeting, then stapling in the new carpet.

I’m so glad we didn’t have to just buy a new scratching post, we are really pretty much broke…
Plus throwing big things like this always feels like such a waste.
If I can fix old things like this it restores purpose and gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Now every time I see the scratch post I don’t have to think “Sigh, Its all torn.” Or “I WISH we could afford a new one”.

Our cats used to go flying off of this cat tree like squirrels! Ever since the GIANT rip they haven’t been frolicking off of it so carefree. I hope they will use it like they used to <3

Here are some before and after pictures:

Lisa stopped my work on the scratching post about half way through. She was all like “WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY BED?!”

Our old foster kittens.

They sure were adorable to watch play. You see the little tuxedo girl kitten here doing her “Dance of death” to that little beetle there in the carpet.
