Watching Arthur and Bella at play is one of the best ever entertainments – the ninja moves that they employ to catch their sibling unawares in particular. Vertical take-off’s; they somehow manage to shoot out, feet splayed and land some distance away where you least expect. They chase around the room at high speed and never knock over anything breakable.
The best entertainment not on TV.
Last night, Arthur expressed determined interest in the back door, left ajar to allow air through as I ate my dinner. He voiced his complaints at not being allowed out with little miaows. Today I went and bought collars and leads and rope to allow them out, and allow me to have the door very open, and what do you know. They like playing with the rope, and tieing each other in knots, but do they want to go out? Well what what do you think…?!!
Cat-Assisted-Typing: the posting of last night’s episode was delayed a bit, as Arthur insisted on coming and helping. Strolling nonchanantly across the sofa he would get up on the keyboard and try and save my work. Oh, and Bella didn’t help by going for the mouse and knocking it on the floor whenever I left it scoop Arthur off the keyboard.
The Cycle of Breakfast. Sitting at the table eating my cereal, Bella would climb up the far side to get onto the table, walk across to join me, and I would scoop her up and put her down. Arthur would climb up the far side and walk across the table, to be scooped back down by me. And Bella would be coming up the far side of the table already … and so it would continue. Great fun, for cats… 😉
