CHEAP THRILLS

 BLOOPER - EXPLORING WHERE THE OTHER CATS HAD BEEN
 THEY CAN'T SEE ME NOW
 OOPS....THERE'S THAT CAMERA AGAIN
 TIMMY SEEMS MORE CONTENT NOW THAN I'VE EVER KNOWN HIM TO BE
 SWEET BAILEY TRYING TO CATCH A NAP
 BLOOPER SEES SOME BIRDS OUTSIDE
CASEY AND RUSTY - BIRD WATCHING - RUSTY DECIDED TO LEAVE AS I SNAPPED THE PHOTO
The cats have many toys they love to play with, but the most fun seems to be derived from everyday things like dangling carpet strings or the opening strips torn from a brand new bag of cat food. One thing they all love is a cardboard box. Yesterday I gave them a big box to play in and they reacted as if I'd given them something made of catnip. They took turns jumping in and out of the box, sometimes landing on the cats who hadn't yet exited. There was no squabbling, just pure fun for them and entertainment for me. I took a few photos but wasn't able to catch all of them at play. They don't like the little sound my camera makes when I open the lens and they often run in the other direction when they hear it, but it's enough to know they had a good time with their big box. It warms my heart to know the cats are adjusting so well to their new environment and I'm actually making some progress with the feral kitties, especially Timmy. He now jumps onto one of the tables, lies in a kitty bed, and allows me to pet him for extended periods of time. That's new to him and to me, and I love it. He lets me know when he's had enough and I always honor his decision to jump down and move onto other things. All is good in Cat Land.

I love all of them...they are sooo cute! I am an animal lover too and have rescued several pets from living on their own. You are such an inspiration...I wish more folks would open their hearts and homes! Thanks for the share...Have a great weekend! Luv

So nice to hear your cats are all settling in so well, Timmy does look content, I guess he sees the others just 'cruising', so figures it's a safe place for him too!!
I don't know what is is about boxes, Miss Mini loves getting inside the smallest of them and curls up and goes to sleep - weird!!!!
