Post 893: happy kitty, new box…and a fly, too!

A new development: a fly got in the house. Boy oh boy! The kitties are in hunt mode now, swatting at the fly when it flies by, performing amazing acrobatic leaps into the air, and generally getting lots of healthy exercise, something inside pampered kitties can always use more of!


The boys’ favorite people are delivery people, especially those who leave boxes. Such a person visited yesterday, and Dougy quickly claimed his new box!

Woohoo! A new box for Dougy!

Woohoo! A new box for Dougy!

Andy is unhappy because he didn't claim the box first...

Andy is unhappy because he didn’t claim the box first…but there always is the fly!

“Tough stuff, brother! I was here first!”

Dougy doses in the luxury of his new box:

Dougy dozes in the luxury of his new box: “Life is good!” he thinks, “And it doesn’t have to get better than this!”

  1. Oh, yes boxes. Why does anyone invent cat toys when the world is full of boxes and paper bags? And flies.

    And having said that, I can’t resist buying a cat toy now and then. It’s so I can play.

    • Exactly! I am the same way. Of course, the toys I order come through the mail or UPS… in boxes! There you go! The boys get very excited when they see the delivery people at the door because they think they are going to get a new box to polay ion. They also like to play on top of magazines or pieces of paper. I was reading a magazine this afternoon when Andy came over and bugged me till I threw the magazine on the floor. He then climbed on top of it and played king of the mountain! (Such as the mountain was – a fraction of an inch taller than the surrounding area. Ha!)

  2. The “Fly” in the house thing was funny but I want to mention that a house fly got into my bird cage the other day and my pet finches — who have never been outside except to go to the car to go to the veternarian to have their toes trimmed — That fly got into the bird cage and the finches put up a really fuss …. chirping loudly, fluttering their feathers and flying around their cages …. It sounded to me like they were about to suffer strokes so I spent some time getting that fly out of the house and the birdies calmed down.

    • LOL! Buddhist kitty! They have a Zen-like quality about them cats do, so I can imagine a caty that lets other life forms go. My boys like the sport, so put lots of energy into stalking spiders, crickets, moths, ants, flies, random critters that stray inside.

  3. hahaha…Dougy looks absolutely ticked!! His face says…you think this is so much fun….you sit in a box that barely fits and have someone take your picture! P – a- lease! Gimme a break! I laughed so hard when I saw his expression. Reminds me of Shoko’s evil eye.
