On the Prowl

Stalking the wild crackle ball.

Mewsette is just waiting for that sparkly crackle ball to make one false move and it’s curtains! You can tell by the curl in her tail that it’s a tense moment.

Nearly everyone took some time to play a little tub hockey with the crackle ball which suddenly showed up out of nowhere after being AWOL for a few months. They like just about any ball, especially in the tub, but the crackle ball makes a really satisfying noise whenever it moves and even when they pick it up.

It also fits perfectly in the tub drain with just enough protruding to pull it back out and start all over again. Mewsette’s game of tub hockey turned into miniature golf as she scored several holes in one, and holes in several.


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.

    • If only I could have gotten rid of that pattern in the tub bottom…

  • The boys like to play hockey in the tub using the little aluminum tea light candles I occasionally forget to move off the ledge after a nice long soak in the tub. If I don’t extinguish them ahead of time, they’re a bit too hot to move when I get out of the tub…. Angus and Donal are THRILLED when they can get hold of one.

    • Lately it’s been a real golf ball because it makes a neat growling noise as it rolls across the floor–really weirds me out, though! I don’t recognize it when I hear it and it sounds like something in the house is coming apart.
