My cats love the track ball! They really go nuts when I put a little cat nip on the insert.

Their fav of all favs though is an empty Pepsi bottle with a few small rocks in it. I made it when I was trying to teach my little one to stay off of my hutch. Someone told me if I would rattle the rocks in the bottle and toss it in the direction of the cat when she was getting ready to jump up on the hutch it would scare her away.

Wrong! The game is to play like you are going to jump up so Mom will throw the noise maker for us to play with. Both cats take turns batting the thing all over the house.

Patches is gone, too.
First I lost my father. 6 months later, Pippin died of cardiac arrest on a vet's table in S. Fla and 6 months after that, I had to put Patches down. She was on subcutaneous fluids for years and her kidneys were shutting down. I tried to make her last days happy ones. I still miss them both. They were so good to my father--avoided the oxygen leads, kept him company.

It took me three years to be willing to be adopted by Sadie and Celia and I found them at Rescue Village.
