Cat Talk

February 10, 2010 no comments

Its funny when cats talk to each other. a couple nights ago leroo was visited by a neighborhood cat. he came to our kitchen window and called to leroo to come talk to him.  she got up on the fridge as she does…to reach the kitchen window…and answered. they both spoke in that funny, throaty way cats do when they are working out whether to fight or not..the pre-fight-standoff thing. here is an interesting link to a site about cat talk: click here.

Leroo’s New Toy

February 8, 2010 no comments

lori gave leroo a new toy. a great one too…leroo LOVED it.  its a fishing pole with a string and a bird thing on the end…Da Bird.  the great thing about leroo’s particular one is it had two big stiff feathers…and a couple small teasers….when you swished it around it spun and made a realistic sound and leroo loved it.  the big feathers i think really make the difference over other feather toys. she would catch it and actually carry it off to some where where she could relish her kill, and then stash it.  she had a look of complete satisfaction from the experience too.  like she really caught something.  soon, of course, she killed the feathers…so it was just the part the feathers stuck into that attached to the string.  she loved the toy in this state too. we played a lot with it and she’d catch it and stash it just like when it still had feathers.  a few days later i woke up to find that leroo had killed that part too.  she bit the string the thing was attached to..leaving about 10 inches of string still attached to the stick. the part with the feather connector was no where to be seen. i found that a few days later stashed under some furniture. she still loves playing with the part of the toy that remains…the stick with 10 inches of string.she really got the most out of this toy…enjoyed every bit.
