Shreddy pushes into noogies until we do them hard enough.

That's what Monkey does - pushes her head into your hand. I thought it was just a her thing, but Shreddy does it too!

I put her laser dot on for her this afternoon while I was watching the hockey game. I did it twice for five minutes. After the second time, she walked around the base and then laid in front of it. She pawed the spot where the beam comes out trying to make it work. I have got to keep my camera in the living room - this cat is hilarious!

Speaking of her, she just came into my office, jumped up, said hi and is now curled up in the middle of Violet's big bed. It is so funny to see this little black fur ball in the middle of a four by four foot dog bed!
Thank you, LP. Yes, it's hard on us when our furbabies are hurt or sick. Blackee has been so funny lately too, he is 13 years old and has just found out that chasing his tail is lots of fun. Right now he is pouncing on imaginary prey in the living room. It's just a piece of fuzz. lol

Monkey sounds like a hoot!

I am not trying to make this thread all about Monkey, but I had to share this. I decided to sort out my card making supplies and get that part of the room in order. I opened the bottom drawer and got called away. This is what I saw when I came back.

Monkey is the first cat I have had that has been like this. So if I have all these "first time Mom" stories, that's how I feel!

Latté almost got herself shut in the office this morning, I didn;t notice her follow me in, she zoomed out the door as it was closing. We keep it closed for the correct humidity level because of all the guitars. She would have been in there until Shrek wandered in at some point today.

My dog does that constantly with the DH's computer room. We start looking all over for him when he disappears. He will not bark etc to let us know where he is. He just sits patiently by the door until someone comes and opens it.
