Tracker Leo

When we got the new track ball toy thingie, we wondered if the kitties would play with it. They did. Not excessively, but enough. Star loves the scratchy part in the middle. But it's a big thing in a small room and it tends to wind up under a chair where they can't get to it.. So I make sure to drag it out once in a while so they can play with it.

Leo found it had been pulled out from under the chair the other day and took possession of it. He always looks so confused when the ball gets stuck under his fur and stops rolling, which is where it is in the following pictures.

Hey rolly ball, where did you go?
 
 

Dang, I hate when that happens..
 
 

Oh hey, a camera. Guess I had to stop playing anyway. I wonder where that ball ran off to though..
 


That's my big goofball!

Does that darn ball keep hiding from you Leo - give it a big whap when you find it.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The ball track is a fun sometimes-toy for us, too. We like it because the ball can't get out and go under other furniture where we can't reach it. You aren't supposed to lose it in your armpit, Leo!

Well, you were on track until the ball took off!

I wish my cats showed more interest in that toy. I bought one, and they lie with the front part of their bodies on it. That's the extent of their interaction, except that Tungsten uses the round cardboard in the middle to scratch. Sigh.

we have one of those, but it didn't come with it's own ball. so mom has tried putting different balls in it that we have around the house....and Jake has successfully removed and made off with every one of them :)

Leo, você é tão doce! Vou dar uma dica para você, olhe debaixo de sua pata!

We used to keep ours under the bed until Harley kept playing with it in the middle of the night.

I never liked those things. Wonder where the ball ran off to, Leo. Maybe you should get up and look for it unless Star is waiting to play, of course.

Cardboard scratchers are the best, but I've never seen a track ball. I prefer to bat and chase my spongy balls down the long hallway.

Star, darling, that Barbarian isn't 'zackly a brain trust, is he? Poor dear boy.

I am so sorries the Human has been so neglectful of me and my blogging needs my sweet girl! I am hoping by the weekend, I will be back in action and at the top of my game. She has gotten AWFULLY lazy. XOXOXO

That's is a definitely a look of surprise on Leo's face. We kitties do exactly the same thing, especially if two of us are playing at the same time. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
