Dry Food for Humans?

Look what someone left on the bed! People Food!!!

You stand watch. I’ll get us some!

What are these things?

I think they’re dry people food. They taste pretty good!

I’ll get us some more.

That was a great snack, now wash off the evidence so no one knows that we were in the bag.

Quick, act innocent! They’ll never know.

The Lingerie Shoot

In spite of a basket full of toys and humans to play with, tonight the kittens entertained themselves with something Lil’ Red pulled out of the trash. Who knew this would have made such an interesting toy?

Hey, what you got? It looks interesting. Can I play too?

This thing is weird. At least let me look at it.

No, you can’t. You’re not even a girl!

Well, at least I know how to wear it!

Red has started closing her eyes when I aim the camera. She seems to be anticipating the flash. Interesting…

Kitten Logic

Kittens as problem solvers

Look! Someone gathered up all of our toys and put them in this green thing!

 

Well, this is a fine mess. How are we supposed to play when all of our toys are in this basket?

I can get my stuffed mousie out like this.

But it doesn’t work for a ping pong ball. How am I supposed to get my ping pong balls?

Perhaps I can push it over and dump the toys out.

Moe, we can do this if you push too.

There’s the prize!

Problem solved. Time for a nap.

Still Purrrfecting the Nap

If there is one thing this kitty knows how to do, it’s relax!

Putting a Myth to Rest

During daylight hours, she lurks beneath rotted logs, and in darkened caverns, but at night, unseen to human eyes, she comes out to hunt. Sometimes seen in aged wood piles and collapsing houses, the giant, forest spider is a rare site. She feeds upon anything smaller than itself, including small mice. This story doesn’t appear unbelievable if  you live in the tropics, but giant spiders in the North Eastern United States? If you tell someone that there are spiders with a four to six inch leg span living in our area, they will raise an eyebrow chuckle and say something like: “Aaa Hum… Sure… Right, and how big was this spider actually? Three quarters of an inch, I bet… Afraid of spiders, are we?”

But those of us who live in or near the forest just smile, because we know something they don’t know. Spiders grow larger where man does not intervene. This little darling is not as big as she looks, she’s actually bigger. With a four inch leg span and a body as thick as my thumb, this sweet girl is not yet fully grown. (We’ve seen them far bigger!) Found sauntering across my dining room in the middle of the night, she is solid proof that her kind actually exist.

She was safely released deep in the forest, where she will find a mate, eat him if he’s not very, very careful, and raise plenty of giant, baby spiders.

This big girl is not a myth.

For those of you who refused to believe: See, I told you so! Now, who did what with that can of spider spray?
