Post 744: Caturday is for wand toys…!

Nothing piques the boys’ interest like a wand toy. Dougy, in fact, knows where I store them –the little end table Andy likes to sleep on…– and he’s been puzzling out how to open the door since the first day he saw me pull a BirBug wand toy out of it. No luck so far!

Yes, Andy! It's a wand toy!

Andy comes in closer and I move the wand toy into better light.

Dougy wants some of this wand toy action, too, though Doug (the human one) all ready played wand toy with him earlier. Dougy is all about a good time!

I guess Dougy had enough wand toy for the moment  because he decides to bird watch out the back window, leaving all the wand toy fun for his brother.  Andy doesn't know what to make of this development. Dougy usually hogs the toys!

“Hunh…?!”
Andy tries to process this wonderful moment. The wand toy is all his!

Dougy loves bird watching from this window, which overlooks the fir in the backyard!

Now that Dougy's not hogging the wand toy, Andy doesn't want to play anymore. What's the point?

      • AQndy would freak out, I fear. He associates being held with getting a dose of medicine. I try to mix in holding him for no reason but petting him and massaging his shoulders and bridge of his nose, but he is a clever little guy, not fooled by gestures! Dougy just isn’t a cat that likes to be held either. They are getting better, letting me hold them 10 seconds at a time instead of three, but it still is a short moment!

  1. We’ve given up on any toy that involved a stick, string, and toy. Kommando Kitty almost immediately chews through the string to get at the toy. Snoops then takes the toy and adds it to her collection.
