Cabin fever????

These are just a few photos I snapped around here of the kitties. The old cats seem to be learning new tricks, or cabin fever is starting--because I've never seen them do this stuff before.

Ruby, perched on top of a 4 foot high decorative birdhouse that I have by the front door:

I can only guess that she hopped up there to absorb some sunshine...???? Or just to look cool!

And this one is kind of a Lucy series.
1. Jump onto bathroom sink to see what mommy is doing, find Qtip:

2. Decide QTip is a great toy and tastes good:

3. Relax for a nap because now I'm too sleepy to make it back to my usual napping places:

I bet Ruby is smarter than that and is standing real real still incase a bird comes for an open house to view the apartments.

Oh, she's very smart alright---if she's waiting for anything, she's waiting for the chipmunks that use it! I put some mothballs in there, but I don't know if that has totally deterred them. Chipmunks are so cute, but they are everywhere around here and they ruin my plants in warmer weather :mad:

Another cabin fever first--Rommel let me put something on him, and I was bored enough to try!

Nice pictures. I also think she's just waiting for the birds/chipmunks to come home.

Hmmm, well our little QTip kitty was a little naughty in the night...this is what we found on the floor in the middle of the night...

Of course it was the dogs,little kitties don't do stuff like that:D
It seems most cats have a"thing"for q-tips,especially dirty ones:yuck: we keep ours well away from the cats:D

This thread is so funny Shannon! I love Rommel's face- he's so jolly!:) And the evidence all over the floor? Priceless.

Gosh, our doggies love the QTips too--they are just great fun. And of course, I've caught Rommel with 2 of them now today. Unlike a kitty, he actually eats them though.

Funny Prin--'jolly' wasn't the word that Mark had for it! He said, "aw man, why do you have to torture him like that? He looks miserable."

I think it's funny that one day, Lucy finds a single QTip, then the next thing we know, she's on a rampage, opening cabinet doors to rip the package open to find more. Honestly, I didn't give her credit for that level of intelligence, but I guess I will have to start to think a little differently about her.

LOL It's like she's saying "Here I am eating a Qtip and I get no attention. Maybe 500 Qtips is the answer..."
