It’s Saturday morning, I’m watching My Cat From Hell and I don’t have to drive to a trivia tournament today! Once my spouse wakes up and comes downstairs, I’m sure I’ll have to change the channel! But that’s OK! I can probably watch old episodes whenever I like, so no big…
Cats are fascinating creatures. Compact, soft, seemingly boneless, dexterous as a ninja, obscenely cute and…deadly. Not so much to humans as much as they are to local bird populations and rodents (when they are given free rein to do what they do best and are not cooped up in your house all day).
Stampy the cat (more about him in a bit).
Did you know Disneyland keeps a herd of feral cats around to keep rodent populations in check? There are lots of web sites out there which can enlighten you with fascinating facts about Disneyland and Disney World! Want to be a Disney princess? Well, you can’t be too tall! 🙂 Maybe Disney will do a movie about an Amazon princess! Wait…DC. already did that!
Let’s rewind a bit here…couldn’t we all learn a lesson from our cats? Don’t we all need a chance to get out and do whatever it is we do best? You may think kitty is content sleeping 22 hours a day, but watch how excited they get when they see a bird or squirrel outside! They scrunch down low, their tails twitch and they make those chattery noises. Give your indoor kitty some outside time (even if on a leash so they don’t run off) and I assure you they will be more over stimulated than a kid at a waterpark. I used to take my parents’ cat Stampy outside to do this and he LOVED it!
Maybe it really is all about the thrill of “the hunt!”
