Post 918: “Go to bed, kitties! Go to bed…!!!”

I’ve written before about the wand toy game Andy and Dougy invented. The most noticeable part of the game is how the cat inviting the brother to play meows piteously from some distant place till his brother comes running.

From that point, when both are at the wand toy, the boys begin to chase each other. The wand toy doesn’t seem to serve any specific purpose other than to announce the game has begun.

Andy prepares for the game. The wand toy is stretched out in front of him.

Though it seems to be a “keep-away” game, the wand toy never  gets taken. All I know is it will be in a different place each time I see it. One or the other cat moves it at some point during the game, though I’ve rarely seen this happen.

A pitiful yowling alerts Dougy to the starty of the game....! This time it's during the day, but last night it was after I went to bed.

Yes, last night the game took place while I tried to sleep! I guess I didn’t wear the boys down enough before I went to bed.

Andsy needs a drink. Dougy must be sleeping because he isn't running to join the game...!

Of course, he and Andy were up last night playing, so, of course, he is a bit worn out this morning!

Dang cats!

  1. What a couple of characters!! The wand game here has me actively taking part and Kali watching. I’ve tried including Kali but she doesn’t want to play, just watch. I don’t know what Kali gets out of the game but she’s happy.

    • Sounds a bit like Andy. Dougy tends to be a play hog, so Andy has to wait till Dougy’s tired of the game before he gets involved. The alternative to that is for me to ignore Dougy and concentrate on getting Andy involved. I get back to Dougy, of course, but Andy gets to have some fun this way, too!
