Fev-ver Friday

Hey Mom! What in the world is that pink thing that I see around the corner? Are you planning on doing a hula dance or something? Please don't embarass me!

Hmmm. Let's see. It's pink and soft. It "tickles" my nose when I get up close to it. But, what in the world am I supposed to do with this thing?

Wait a minute. Something is coming back to me from a loooooonnnng time ago when I was just a little girl. I remember something about it being fun and that I had to do something with my paws and mouth.

My human nephew, Russell used to play with me (Baby Praline in 1995) with this blue thing that Mom says is a feather!

Wait a minute, I remember! It's a fev-ver and I am supposed to attack it with all four paws and my mouth! Weeeee, I forgot how much fun it was to play with a fev-ver. Mom, where have you been hiding this? Let's do this more often.

Weeeeeee! Fev-vers!

Note from Mom: This feather has been standing up in my bedroom for over 5 years and Praline hasn't given it a second glance. I decided to pull it out last night and she was so funny. She really just looked at it at first, then sniffed it, and then she grabbed it. She didn't play as much as she did when she was a kitten (jumping and running and hissing), but I think she did pretty good for a 12-year old kitty.

Oh Praline, you're so cute! I hope it gets cooler for you soon. Perhaps you should get a lion cut like my imaginary cat Bozo! My Dad and stepmum live in SC so I hope their air con is working well. Did you get yours fixed okay? :) xxx

That is a pretty pink fev-ver toy Praline! It is so nice that it brought back the special memories of you and Russell playing :)
I have a special toy with little fluffy balls hanging from a string, and Momma doesn't get that out for me much either! I guess I need to have a talk with her ... hee hee!
Purrs and headbutts,

You just can't beat a good feather-on-a-stick, can you? I think you did very good. Maybe you just need more practice to start getting it like a kitten. You can tell you're Mom it's foot therapy and she has to walk through the house as you chase the feathers.

Praline, my mom thinks yours takes great pictures of you! But since you asked, she's using a Canon 40D with several different lenses. That last picture was taken with an 85mm lens. She just got the 40D (before that she had a 10D) so she's still learning about the stuff it can do.
