Daily Photo: Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

The sun is shining and it’s a great day for an afternoon game of stairway ball! Mimi is ready to catch whatever flies overhead and Mewsette is at the top to catch my foul balls. I have created a bunch of little monsters, but it’s great fun to stop for a little game of play in the middle of the day, especially with the little surprise gift Dr. Michelle brought today and a good dose of catnip.

Guardians of the Stairway

Mewsette and Mimi ask if I’d like to pass through to the upstairs.

Do you think they’ll let me through?

It’s not too often there’s enough sunlight in the stairway to the second floor to photograph black cats, but the sun was bright today and the trees are still bare so the sunlight poured into the window, lighting and warming the narrow space. And, of course, wherever sun is plentiful, so are cats.

When I stepped on the bottom landing to go upstairs, I was confronted with the guardians of the stairway. They would not let me pass until I spent some time playing with them. I knew they were hoping I’d toss at least one bizzy ball up the steps for them, our favorite game, which I did, bringing forth the boys to participate. Soon I had all five cats running up and down the stairs after a series of bizzy balls, then ping pong balls, crackle balls, then a variety of any small toys that were handy. One of these days when I figure out where to set the tripod I’ll video this big game.

Supervisor in Waiting, 2013

“The sooner you get to work, the sooner I get a nap.”

“If you’re going to work today, could you get to it? I’d like to have a nap, but I’m scheduled to supervise today and I can’t nap until you’re done.”

    I’d love to have stairs in the condo so I could grab the peeps ankles when they’re coming down. MOL! Do Mimi and Mewsette do that?

      Steps present a cat with a lot of possibilities, CK! They do figure 8s around my ankles as I walk up and down and run in front of me, and they play the stepmonster and completely cover a step with themselves and move around so I can’t go anywhere.
