Rolly Goofball

Sometimes, even when I think Leo's being a wild man playing, I look at the pictures later and realize, dang, he was a lazy player again! To be fair, when he IS leaping around, it's very hard to get pictures while I'm wielding Da Bird, so most of the pictures of him playing are when he's chilling out or before the crazies. But those crazies don't last as long as you'd assume they would in such a young kitty.

Here's an example, he was playing rather wildly, but the pictures don't show it.

No! It got away from me!
 
 

Still not close enough.. come on!
 
 

I got it! But hey, there's all kinds of toys behind me...
 
 

If I roll over here, you have to flip the bird farther. Come on, quit being lazy mommy..
 
 

Ha! I got it again!


That's my boy, wild for a few minutes, lazy and rolly for another few, then shortly after, nap time!

We are all pretty wild when it comes to Da Bird...well, perhaps Meow-Me's an exception. She's very lady like in the way she plays. :D

Binga likes to play lazy, but not me! I sprint and leap around like crazy!

Um, we think that "lazy" can be a real talent...

Being "lazy" and making you do all the work is a special cat talent!

Katie Isabella said...

Yep...lazy means mom does the work. I do a lot of hard playing though. Last night when mom was playing with me and used our Kitty tease, I charged the denim bow and tumbled head over heels. I did a somersault!

Mum was laughing at this - she said we are sometimes lazy players but then we catch her by surprise and she gets an ouchie!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Sometimes you just have to rest between grabs!

Essence of cats!

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

Having a great time with your bean! Very treasure moment.

TW knows all about that first graph. If I'm jumping, she can't take pictures. But I do play using only my paws a lot.

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

Maxwell: Yup, that's me too. Hey, why run after it more than once or twice when you know your humans'll bring it to YOU?

The Cat From Hell said...

Now that is my kind of playing!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Me: Um, Hi, everyone! My name is Spitty and I'm a Lazy Player.

Crowd: Hi Spitty! (Weak applause)

Me: Yes, I am a master of the lazy-roll-and-grab play session, the king of the pleading glance that says "Please come closer, birdie!" or "Human, you can't seriously expect me to jump, can you?"

In fact, I don't know what I'm doing here. I don't even *want* to change! Bye now!

Crowd: ::grumbles and follows::
