From left to right, Lucky, the Bandit (right after we got her and more of kitten than we thought) and the grey lady, Misty the Magnificent.
We're discovering that the Bandit has unexpected talents. It's no secret that cats love things that roll. But this one goes looking for them. And is smart enough to look at something in a bowl or basket and try it out to see if it works. Current favorites? Cherry tomatoes and the unplanted bulbs in a basket that is inside a large empty terra cotta pot in the garage. I haven't
seen any teeth marks on the bulbs or the tomatoes but she must have to get them in her mouth to get them in the house. Especially the bulbs. She has to get them up three steps from the garage to the house. They don't roll all that well so we find them abandoned later. I think the "hunt" is what matters. The getting it out of the pot and into the house.
Lucky "hunts" garden gloves. We find them all over the place. You can usually hear her while she's bringing them in because she meows while she's carrying it. I don't know if she's calling her kittens to dinner or if it's "see what little ol me can haul around." Last winter she even had a spell of hauling my terry cloth bathrobe off the bed. She actually got it into the living room once.
Misty hunts laps, sunny spots, toilet paper rolls (they roll, reeeeal good) and she likes to hold hands
