Watching a cat play with an object or with each other is always a surprise because you never know what might happen.  The most common objects to us could be a treasure for them.  For example, my older cat, Kirby, has now decided that playing with the straps on my swimming suit hanging on the handicapped handle of the bathtub is the greatest thing since peanut butter!  Have hung my suits there for the last two years when I rinse them out after water aerobics.  But, he's just now discovered this "thing" to play with and is having a ball.

Another common object I've found that all of my cats have liked to play with has been just an ordinary box regardless of whether it's empty or has something in it.  Much like this cat:

Or maybe a box designed by their owner like this one:

However, the poor cat doesn't really look too happy since it probably wasn't his idea.  Just plain old boxes will do.  My younger cat, Sammy, likes to tip over the recycling box that we have for papers anytime it's empty.  Once papers are in it, he leaves it alone.  But, if it's empty, he can't resist!

They can keep themselves entertained very well just as Kirby did with my swimming suit strap.  Or like these cats:

From catching butterflies, to exploring:

to being hyperactive:

Get two kitty cats together, and they can come up with most anything!

Sometimes their play will get them into very awkward places.

But, however they play, you can be assured that you will be laughing and thoroughly entertained!


  1. Cats are soooo fun! Treat post.

  2. I have to share this. My cat is getting old so when I am in my recliner and she wants to come up in my lap, I let the foot rest out so she can jump up with ease. I can usually tell when she wants to come up in my lap, but last night I guess I missed her cue. When I looked down at her she was actually giving me dirty looks! I just had to laugh, but not before I opened the foot rest for her. She jumped up immediately and all was forgiven.
