Play Ball!

No, this isn't a baseball-themed post.  I don't give two hoots about that.  Mom, dad and I have our games we like to play, one of which I also enjoy playing solo.

     I have my three little fuzzy balls that jingle when you toss them, and even though I'm a senior cat I love my play time. 
Mom and dad fling the a ball back and forth right near me, and even though I try to play like I'm not interested, before long they got me swiping away at the ball as they pass it back and forth.

     Now and then I don't let them have it back, and I'll continue to play with the darned thing by myself, grabbing it, biting it, kicking at it and tossing it up in the air or against the wall. 

     Good gosh, sometimes I get all crazy and feisty and lose control, batting and swiping at anything that gets too close. Hands, especially (sorry mom and dad). 
And then I stop.  Not interested in this silly child's play.  Nope.  Too mature for that.  Sorry this last one's so blurry.  Dad has too much coffee sometimes.  Okay, dad has too much coffee every day.  Sometimes he can't seem to hold his phone still.

We're impressed, Cleo! The only ones here who will play with those kinds of toys are the two I boys. That is, if Mom lets the "noisy toys" out of their secret hiding place!

I'm a big fan of ping pong balls.....they are my favorite. I have six of them and every day Dad has to dig around UNDER the furniture to find them after I've played "soccer" all night long. I like to keep the old guy in shape! Thanks for visiting my blog today to see my regular Saturday feature about BACON......YUM.

Hugs, Teddy

Sometimes, it takes a bit of coaxing to get a kitty to play, but it's fun for awhile, isn't it Cleo?

Amarula is the same with her toys--for weeks she will love it and obsess about it and then one day will completely lose interest!

Katie Isabella said...

I love mine too Cleo. You are..and I know I said this before, SUCH a beauty. I love looking at you. You are like a beautiful warm furry Snickers Bar in color.

Such a fun, pretty kitty! We don't see a lot of play out of our two seniors, but Jezebel will sometimes go bananas in the afternoons. Good times. Be well!

Lexy loves playing ball! She brings them to Mommy in the middle of the night, too.
