Ever since it rains and storms outside, my cats "storm" through the house too, except Kim of course who watches her siblings incomprehensible behavior stoically.

Rosie hunts invisible mousies in my room and like an arrow from one side to the other on my bed up and down and makes loud growling noises, difficult to describe. I have never heard a cat doing this.

When she is not busy with her crazy hunting, she collects her mousies and apparently tries to feed them.

Or she gives them a bath. Pookie doesn't bother as long as she has to eat. Now that she has become an old lady, and has difficulties to climb on the sofa she only has three things in her mind. Food, talking and hissing at Rosie.

But she tolerates Kim laying besides her.

Yesterday evening preparing my bed for sleeping, I throw all the cushions on the floor as usual. But one cushion resisted and suddenly had a paw with claws and scratched my hand. Absentminded I had taken Arthur for a cushion and wanted to throw him on the floor too. He was not offended, turned around and continued to sleep.

He still rumbles through the house playing with his bird, which apparently is very solid.

He also has discovered another noisy toy little ducks which he throws around in the bathtube ! From time to time he interrupts himself to use the bathtube for what it is ... to wash.

while Pookie sits outside the bathroom, and watches Mr. G when he shaves.

Rosie , it´s good that you both feed and wash your mousies !
Me haven´t done that in a while , maybe could be that they all are under the sofa ?!

Happy Tuesday to you all !

All four cats leading busy lives as usual. You will have to buy some pet steps so Pookie can climb on the sofa. Or does the sofa has legs you can saw off? The motto for ageing cats is "whatever it takes".

We call bathtub games tub hockey! That's lots of fun. I'm glad the kitties are keeping themselves busy while the weather is so bad.

Playtime is playtime, but even so, one must never forget to stay clean! ;)
We don't have a bathtub to play in so we try to play in the kitchen sink but that always result in Daddy shouting at us!

Great idea to put the mousie in the bath tub Arthur so you always know where to find him. How kind of you to give your mousies a bath Rosie - do they smell lovely afterwards?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Looks like the cats have all found fun ways to pass the time when it rains!

Sorry you have had so much rain, Gattina! Sounds as though the cats are quite restless for some sunshine, too.

LOL! Poor Arthur - mistaken for a cushion. Then again, mine have been sat on by accident before because they've merged into the furniture so well.

MOL, sounds like Situation Normal, All Catted Up! We do racing and growling too but that's because we're rough and tough man-cats.
