Thimble insisted that Toby share his front row seat.
In case you were wondering, Toby's favorite method for getting another kitty out of his way is employing the sniff-the-tooshie-and-hope-they'll-skedaddle maneuver. That is, indeed, what he is doing to Thimble in that there picture up there. She is a pro at ignoring him.
We sure do love Fish TV around here!
And do you know what else Toby loves?
The Jackson Galaxy Space Station that we won from our furiends the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head! Toby's mom, this human's sister, came home the other day and found Toby chillaxing in the Space Station. She snapped these shots and shared them with me.
This toy is a huge hit at our house. Toby loves to snooze in it like this, as well as use the scratcher that is inside and that apparently makes for a great mattress. My girls Thimble and Eddy love love love to slap that sunny yellow ball around the track. All the time. Day and night. Eddy even figured out how to remove the ball from the track so that she could chase it around the house. I have since figured out how to keep the ball inside the track, and Eddy's okay with this, as she loves to sit beside the Space Station and get the ball going just like that.
This here human is a pretty pathetic photographer and has yet to succeed at getting shots of her own happy kitties enjoying their new toy. Between forgetting to charge the camera batteries and having no clue how to snap a decent action shot, this silly human really needs to get her act together. While I work on that, you can at least enjoy these shots that Toby's mom snapped of him.
It looks like maybe Toby would like some privacy. As you wish, Toby.
Happy Tuesday, everybuddy!

Our Tip of the Day:
We know we've given this tip before, but since it is something that we happily employ at our home, we thought we'd share it again. And that tip is, if possible, to ensure that your kitty has some interactive toys to keep them busy and happy. More importantly, try to ensure that plenty of these toys are ones that won't be lost beneath furniture, such as by choosing ones that are stationary or large. Such interactive toys can really help to combat boredom in our felines. There are a plethora of enticing interactive toy options, including track ball toys, motor toys (such as mice that run on a small motor), and wand toys, including those that can be suctioned to windows so as to remove the necessity of human hands. There are also plenty of cat trees, cubes, and tunnels that come with attached interactive toys, to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. So, especially if you have an active kitty who might tend to get bored, try to ensure that they have some interactive toys that they can rely on to keep their bodies and minds happy and healthy.
