Keeping the World Safe From Little Sticks

Hmmm, what would you do with two bored cats when you want to get some housework done?

I toss a little stick from a basket just in front of them. Both carefully study the stick for quite some time. Whole minutes quietly go by while their predator instincts determine the best course of action.

Oh, look, a stick.

Suddenly, Mr. Sunshine takes action, attempting to bite the stick.

Sunshine "gits" the stick.

Then, more lengthy consideration.

More contemplation.

Suddenly, Mewsette swats the stick.

Now they are ready for the next organized play activity.

    That’s so funny, Bernadette. I do that right before I turn on the vacuum cleaner. I know they’ll be under the bed as soon as I turn that ugly monster on so I humor them a bit before hand!

      Susan, what they don’t make us do, or we do to accommodate them!
