Brian you look like you could stay there and snooze all day! Maybe that’s not such a bad idea! Love the footage of Gigi playing in the straw……it’s nice that they have some fun isn’t it – when you feel SAFE you can relax and have a good time.

Hugs, Teddy

Brian, just how much catnip did you put in that straw? That is one round up sweet looking girl outside your window. By the way Saturday morning is meant for sleeping in so you look quite handsome on the bed. Precious

Now … next? Who is volunteering to give little Gigi a good brush up to get all the straw out of her furs?

Gigi’s Kitten Play had me laughing. she is having a great time all by herself. I need a pile of straw for myself, needing something to jack up my energy levels, maybe I could try throwing hand fulls of straw in the air. Brian you are handsome and maybe you could send out emails to the TV networks and suggest their talking heads might do better if they broadcast from BED

It’s wonderful that Gigi feels safe at your house and can have some play time. Unlike you she has to be on alert all the time.

Awww, that is so nice to see, and we applaud all the work you do for the ferals and the blogosphere.
Getting out of bed is something I try to avoid, which Mrs H says is why I have so many beds, MOL
Happy Saturday to you all!

Caturday at the movies. I like it! Gigi is gorgeous. I think she needs a nip toy or two. When TW lived in the old house, she’d bought Autumn some toys from Cat Claws. The mailman left them outside. When TW came home from work, she found the stray family out front loving those toys. They’d ripped open the envelope. Those ferals enjoy toys too.

Cats don’t play unless they are comfortable and have full tummies and know they are relatively safe. That means you have an excellently managed feral colony!

My chickens don’t get too excited when I give them hay, so that was extra adorable to see the exuberant reaction.
