Never Too Old To Play



Zima turns 15 this spring. She has been more playful than usual lately. She used to play only when the younger two cats weren't around. Now she'll chase stuff even if they are around to compete with her. Not sure what that's all about, but I like it.

We should never get too old to play.

I'd like to get a cat, but my dog really wouldn't allow it.

Zima used to share her home with my 180-pound rottweiler. Who says cats and dogs can't get along?

Very cute. Kittens are so fun to watch play and be stupid. But there is something about watching an older cat lose all inhibition and just go nuts for awhile that always warms my heart. I agree, we should never be too old to play.

Freddie is a divo. He has to be the star, or he's unhappy. (When we take him to visit a friend who has a couple of dogs, he gets upset if anyone pets the other dogs--in their own home!)

Natalie took the words out of my mouth!

"We should never get too old to play" - that goes for you, too.

Natalie - I don't know if it is the spring weather change or what, but she has definitely lost some of her inhibitions. It probably helps that the drug we are giving Silvio for his bladder also chills him out.

Jim - sounds like Freddie must be solo, and it doesn't matter what species the competition is. I had a cat like that. She loved other humans but didn't care a thing for any of my other pets.

Red - I had to do something extra, to make up for Kat not posting on Saturday. We got that carpet at Lowes, I think. Looked a long time to find something to go with the new sage green couch and finally saw that one when we were shopping for something else.

dr s - I try not to forget that!

BC - Cami has good taste.

Zima is quite a pretty cat. And I love it when older cats shed their dignity and go nuts. Not such a fan of them just shedding however. ;)

Fantabulous job at cat blogging! Thanks for picking up my slack. I'm sure LL loved it.
