I loved to play and had games I made up to play with Mom. One was called Pennies! Mom would slide a penny on the terrazzo floor from one end of the room to me and I would pounce on the penny and catch it. It was like penny hockey! I was good at it. Mom would keep them coming one after another!
Another game I played was catch - Mom would throw a jingle ball high in the air to me and I would jump up on my hind legs and catch it - almost every time! I guess I was a bit of a jock then!
I also liked to play hide and seek with Mom. She would go hide behind a door or someplace like that and call me. I would slowly walk through the house looking for her, peeking behind things and under stuff until I found her. She would jump out with a whoop and I would run and hide for her to find me.
My favorite hiding place was the bathtub. I would lay on the tub floor and wait for Mom to find me. Sometimes she would be right there but stay quiet so I would lift my head up to peer over the tub ledge with just my ear tips and eyes visible! She laughed when I did that and thought I was so smart and cute! I am!
I only play for a few minutes at a time now but up until 2-3 years ago, I could still catch the balls Mom threw to me. Now I just like to push them around the floor.
|Me today - I would rather be quiet and nap!|
Help yourself to ham apps and grab some bitty balls to play with. We have plenty of food coming. Ya'll come back. Do you guys have any questions for an ancient kitty like me? I would be happy to answer your questions in the next post - fire away!
