Prairie Dog Glitter

Back on Friday I posted this:
Just WHAT could sweet Glitter be after? Whatever it is, it's just out of sight in that picture, and just out of the poor girls reach!

Before I get to that *big evil grin* please note that something is missing on Glitter herself. Know what it is?
Her big, long, beautiful ruff! That's because the day these were taken, she and Leo had been to the groomer. Among other things, they shortened her ruff because it was so long that she couldn't groom it without getting it stuck in her mouth, no matter how far she leaned her head back, there were bits still caught. So while its easier for her to groom now, that lovely fluffy ruff is gone, for now. I have no doubt it will grow back in quickly, it always does!

So back to the mystery!

You see, groomer day was also the daddy's birthday and he got a balloon! All of the kitties were interested, but Glitter was OBSESSED! We had to tie up the long ribbon on it because she would NOT leave it alone! So what she was doing in that picture was willing it to come back into her reach.

And here, her daddy, even after tying it up so she couldn't reach it, brought it down to her level for her to play with..

Glitter: Oh Thank you daddy! I knew staring at it and being adorable would do the trick! Um, just a little closer please..
Leo: (In the background) Hey! I thought they took that away from us! Still.. not sure it's worth getting out of my nappy spot for it..

Glitter: Much better.. *chompity chomp chomp*
Leo: So not fair...

Glitter: *chompity bitey bite bite* Hey.. iths twyin' ta det 'way, sthop puwwing!
Leo: I think she said "it's tryig to get away, stop pulling" but I could be wrong. Um, sis, it's not pulling, it's flying!

Glitter: It flew alright.. now it's hugging the ceiling again, sigh.

Glitter: Hello, Mr. B'loon? Can you come back down here? Pretty please with nip on it!

Glitter: Are you listening to me, Mr. B'loon? I'm trying to speak with you!
Leo: (now down in the other chair) Maybe he's hard of hearing?

Glitter: MR. B'LOON! PLEASE COME BACK DOWN HERE! Still not listening..

Glitter: I'm gonna figure this out if it's the last thing I do...
You can believe her, folks, she's not done. Not by a long shot! But you'll have to come back next time to see more of her tricks!

Oh Glitter, you do prairie dog better than TKS. But she does a good imitation of your pose. Hope you get another chomp and swipe on that b'loon.

Mr. B'loon was being a bit standoffish, huh Glitter? You are a cutie!

The first time Binga saw one of those Mylar balloons, she was scared to death of it! Then she was fascinated.

Glitter, you sure were fascinated by that balloon, weren't you! We would love playing with the ribbon!

What the heck is a prairie dog?? very year TW gets balloons for her birthday. I'm only innerested in those strings. TW cuts them off when they're half dead and then hits them around the room so I can chase the strings.
