Cat dancing

One of my most favourite games is to play with a toy called a 'Cat dancer'. It is the best toy I have ever had and Joan laughs because I just squeal with delight when she gets it out for a game with me. She says she has never heard a cat squeal so excitedly before!

The boys sometims seem to be a little bit puzzled by it and Oscar prefers to like on his back and bat it around whilst Max takes the occasional swing at it. But neither of them get quite as excited as I do by it and they just kind of shrug and say it is only a bit of cardboard on a piano wire but I love it!

I think it is just great because I do somersaults, twists and turns and leap high into the air to catch it. It springs around like crazy but I can catch it if I concentrate and I will play with it for ages and ages if Joan lets me.

She says that for safety I am not allowed to play with it on my own but that doesn't matter because it makes it more fun when she does get it out of the cupboard because it means we play together rather than me making up my own games.

Joan said it was really hard to get these pictures because I move so fast but we hope you like them anyway.

Ready to pounce

We have definitely noticed that the days now are becoming much longer. Joan is going to work in daylight now and getting home again before it is dark. We get a really good view of all the activity in the garden as the birds are beginning their courtship and all the buds begin to form on the branches of the trees and shrubs.

All of this means that we can get back to our exploration and adventures and spend more time outside in the fresh air stalking, hiding, running and jumping.

It is great fun - plus with a new garden to explore as well - we are getting a lot more exercise!

Not that it always warm and dry enough to be outside so from time to time we have to turn our paws to other activities like helping Joan to put together the new dining table which we left to Oscar.

Oscar helps with a bit of DIY

Even though we now think that Spring can't be very far away we do still have some very cold days and for the past few days there has been some snow around.

Oscar doesn't really know what snow is so Joan let him go out into the garden this morning to look at the light sprinkling that had fallen overnight.

He pottered around and said a quick hello to a crocus that was peeping through the grass and then wandered off to see what Max was saying to a couple of daffodils who were looking a bit sorry for themselves in the frost.

We are looking forward to the warmer weather once Spring really arrives and will keep you posted with out adventures as the year progresses.
