Tales of Tuxie the Cat

Last night Tuxie jumped up on the table where the water sprayer was sitting and somehow knocked it off the table onto the floor . The sprayer bottle broke open on the bottom and all the water spilled out onto the hardwood floor. I wonder if Tuxie had this in mind because he got tired of getting sprayed every time he started to go after the other cats. Now I have no sprayer and I think Tuxie accompished his purpose.
He is a very vocal cat , even tho I cannot hear him (I'm deaf) I can see his mouth meowing. He also follows me all over the house . He likes to play with the toy mouse and I have no idea where it went. He most likely flipped it under furniture somewhere. ....brief interupption while typing this... Tuxie just climbed into my arms for 5 seconds.
I can't get down on my knees to look under the furniture, due to bad arthritic knees and torn ligaments so the mouse is safe for now There are lost ping pong balls and tennis ball too all are hiding from the cat .
Tales of Tuxie will continue another day.....

I'm sure he knew exactly what he was doing from the time he knocked off the water bottle to the time he jumped in your arms .

These are my two favorite cat toys because they can't lose them. Oh, and the cats seem to enjoy them too! They are constantly trying to figure out how to get the balls out!

I got them at Petsmart. The red one is nice because it has replaceable cardboard inserts for them to sharpen their claws. When one side wears out, you flip it over.

I have 4 trackball games but need more inserts. Funny thing is Tuxie likes to sit in the empty one . Tuxie , Ginger , Blackie and Snowy play with Trackball but Gracie could care less for it. Snuggies sometimes play with it. Next time I go to Petsmart I am getting more games for them and more toy mice.

Hi there! I was going to post these in another thread, but I just uploaded the pictures. Your Tuxie reminds me of Cassie, a pet I had for 18 years. Here are some photos, though they aren't that clear.

Thank you for sharing your album with me! Cassie has been gone for almost 9 years. She decided to get preggers too when I went on vacation to the Bahamas..... long story. I found her at the local Humane Society in western NY state. She was my first and only cat. I haven't had a cat since.

You made me smile!
