Our cat really is not that hard done by. Sure, we laugh at her when she hides from the kettle. Ok, we also laugh at her when she hides under the rug and waits for an unsuspecting dog or cat to walk past. None of them ever seem to notice the moving lump under the carpet.




But really, Cleo is a very contented kitten, with so much to do in her busy kitty days. Like sitting on the bird cage, and befriending Min. She's just discovered that she can climb up there, and has been sitting for hours watching the lovebirds. At first they ignored her, but now Min is scaling the cage to poke his beak out to nip at Cleo's toes. They are both having enormous fun.

It is better than her alternative recreation, unravelling the toilet paper roll. I blamed the kids for that, until I noticed telltale claw marks in the paper.

Our cat used to hide behind doors off the hallway, and when someone walked up the hall she'd leap out and rabbit kick their ankles.

She never thought of the rug trick though.

Aww, what a cute kitty, and very pretty bird. Nice they can be 'friends' and I can just picture a moving lump under the rug LOL

I think our cats' heads would explode if there was a bird in the house. They spend hours watching the birds and the squirrels from the windows.

The toilet paper I know about- our friend's cat used it for her favourite passtime, - if they forgot to shut the door!
What a cute cat!
