Cats a-plenty!

Last Friday night I had a neighborhood's worth of cats in my backyard. Princess, Coco, and Boots were all here, Princess on the patio and Boots and Coco sitting by the gate. I went out to greet the troops, but they all took off into the night. The next night, however, Coco came back, so I let him in. He stayed for an hour, then I let him back out to go home for the night. He came back at 2:30 in the morning as we were heading to bed, so I let him in for the night. When I got up in the morning, he was curled up in a chair, fast asleep. I let him out later on in the afternoon and he headed back in the direction of his own yard. I haven't seen Coco yet this weekend, but I'm hoping he'll come back for another sleepover soon.

While he was here, he discovered Lola's favorite catnip toy. He spent at least 10 minutes rolling around drooling on the toy and making a complete fool of himself:

Not to be outdone, Jacob had to maul his own toy, his Spidey that we've had since he and Jasper were kittens:

And then he came back for a second round:

Never a dull moment.

How freaking cute. I really want a cat---bad! I grew up with them, but am allergic...still I want one. A toyger to be exact. My hubs thinks I am nuts...but these videos just confirm it all (not that I am nuts, but that I want a kitty)

Anyhoo--I am your newest follower. I hope you will come by and follow back as well. Juliana from A Blonde Walks Into A Blog
