Cave Attempt 2

Continuing to try to get Leo INTO the cave on his cat tree.. He loves Da Bird, so we kept using it to tempt him inside. How hard does it have to be to convince a kitty to do something that's supposed to be fun for him??

We got him playing...

I see you Birdie, 'n I'm gonna get  ya!



Grab! I know I missed the birdie.. I'm grabbin' the hole!



Now I bite you birdie! Now that you's all unsuspectin'!



We tried this from another angle, getting him on top looking down into the cave..
Didn't I already show you that I could get ya from the top?


Oh yeah..
Birdie tryin' ta tickle me. I give him the ears of annoyance!



I'm gonna grab ya now! Go higher, I dare ya!


 Then a quick drop into the hole! Unexpected results..
Oh lookie! I CAN get in there!



Not exactly how I had imagined..
I will eat you birdie! You can't get out past me again now!


Ok, we'll try again Monday, we gotta get that boy inside the right way!

ha ha ha ha ha!!! We are DYING laughing!!!!!

Would Stringy lure Leo in there? We have a tree with a cave at the bottom and NO kitty will go in there. A MONSTER lives in it. Truth.

Dome kitties take to the cave right off and some don't. No rhyme or reason unless they were scared by a cave in the womb?

We have caves in the bottom of our cat trees and neither of us will go in them either, so mum keeps our toys in there instead.

HA! I'm not overly sure he's gonna fall for it!

I go in MY cave every once in a while. Mommy never thought to store fings in it. Hm...

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

Let me guess Leo. You are secretly laughing at your Mommie aren't you. You probably go into the cave all of the time when she is away from the house!

The Island Cats said...

Haha! We thought Leo was gonna get stuck like that!

The Lee County Clowder said...

We're with Callie. Leo probably sleeps in there when no one's around.

Love these pictures. At least it looks like Leo is having fun trying to get his birdie. Cleo or Casper never went to the cave on their tree. Only one that did was Gizmo. Right before we had to put him down that's where we would find him. Guess he thought he was hiding or something. At least no one bothered him there.

either he is very smart and found a way to increase his play time or he's just not a cave dweller :)

Sparkle said...

MOL, I can't believe you are trying so hard to get Leo to do your will! We kitties don't play that way, you know!

I am STILL laughing!

We've never had a tree with a cave at the bottom so we don't know if we'd like it - Mom says she's not going to get us one to find out!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Those pictures are fantastic. It looks like you had a fun time, even if it didn't work out quite how you planned.

We rarely hide in cavelike places that are down low. The pop-up cat cubes are the exception, and that's usually for playing hide-and-seek. We would probably like that better if it was on a low table, but we love our cat tree so much we might ignore the cave anyhow and just hang out on top, too, Leo!

Katie Isabella said...

Leo...you are just ...well...the cat's meow, that's what. Star, I know mommy wants me to tell you again how she loves that avi of you wif your wee eye all squinted. You are so CUTE!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Leo, Leo, Leo, Why not go in there like a Good Boy and let your Mommy take a nice picture. Then you can totally abandon it! MOL!

Well I never - a cat that doesn't want to go into a hole?! Better luck on Monday

Pawrents always try silly stuff to get us do something we don't want to do.

That was fun watching Leo!

Mom Julie loved his ears of annoyance. Aren't we good at expressing ourselves?

Good goin' Leo!

Bellen said...

Yet if you left out the box the cave came in, he'd probably be inside that all day...

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Oh Star! Thank you for your soothing and gentle words and kissies today. I have never had such a dreadful weekend!! All those hissy girls! You, my sweet, are a real Lady! XOXOXO

One thing we've learned...you can't make a cat do what it doesn't want to do! :p

TW stores my toys in there cos it's too small for me to fit in anyway.
