My cats are fools

cat in box

Here are some silly photos of Spock and Zé just clowning about. Spock, like most cats, loves boxes. He even puts his toys away in one when he has finished killing them. Last week I found some balled up paper, an olive jar lid, a plastic ring from a juice bottle, his special green string (pictured above) and an empty toilet roll tube in his box.

Zé has just discovered that classic of crazy-cat comfort; the bathroom sink.

He is also a big fan of plastic bottles. He knocks them all over and then flops down for a snooze in the wreckage.

Spock has a new sleeping spot. He even sleeps on here when it is going. Sometimes he just sits looking down through the glass, watching the action. I now have to leave the machine unplugged as he likes to press the ‘on’ button when I’m not in the room.

And (best for last) both cats have been very confused about the new cat litter I put in their box this morning. Zé keeps scooping it out and trying to eat it…Spock has taken to sleeping in it. I just had to remove him again. He was happily curled up in it, completely oblivious to the world.

[Update: Zé is now asleep in the litter tray. As yet, neither cat has actually used the tray for its proper purpose today. They must both be getting desperate by now. One of them is going to have to try this new litter soon!]

[Update: Spock finally gave in. The new litter has been christened and so he’s lost his new ‘cat bed’ (at least, I hope he doesn’t continue to sleep in it!). Zé was observing as always and jumped in as soon as Spock finished. You could practically see the little cogs turning in his head as he watched “Oh, so that’s what it’s for. No wonder it tasted bad!”. He really is a beautiful animal but he’s as blonde as they come.]

    I’m imagining kitties crossing their legs! LOL!
    Too funny that you have to leave the washer unplugged. My May Ling loves the washer too. Strange kitties!

    All of these pictures are so funny! I love the one of Spock on the washing machine. I can see how that would be a very desirable place for a cat!

    Thanks everyone. They really are a pair of fools. But, of course, that’s why I love them. They definitely earn their keep with their amusement factor.
