1st Trip to the Park

Park01
Spring weather in January means Mika and Mochi get their first park experience.

Park02
Mochi was especially nervous about it.

Park03
Mika thought it all was great fun.

Park04
What's over there?

Park05
Pretty sure the benches had cat magnets in them. They were frequently drawn to them.

Park06
Mochi cat!

Park07

Park08
Mika contemplates going down the slide but then changes her mind.

Park09
What are you thinking about, Moch?

Park10
They both went down this slide. It must be superior to the yellow one.

Park13
Mika climbs her first tree.

Park11
And then came the Lhasa Apso (or three, actually). Mika handled it pretty well.
They even sniffed noses, despite her frizz.

Park12
She's so cute all frizzed.

Wild Bag Kitties

WildBagKitties-01
What's this? A wild bag kitty?!

WildBagKitties-02
I choose you, Mochicat!

WildBagKitties-03
KITTY CRUSH ATTACK!

WildBagKitties-04
The wild Mikachu escapes!

WildBagKitties-05
There go the ears. It's battle time.

WildBagKitties-06
Frizzies!

WildBagKitties-07
Followed by Mika's laser eyes. Is an electric attack to follow?

WildBagKitties-08
No. Somehow this devolves into lazy kitty pawing/kicking/cuddles.

Not exactly the most epic of battles.


(PS: Mika and Mochi say thanks for the 1000+ views. Purrrrr.)

Balancing Act

Just for fun last week I put Mochi up on the railing with my hands supporting her on either side and Matt grabbed Mika and did the same with her. We never let go of them til we put them back on the ground, since the railing is kind of slippy. Then the following day Mochi was meowing loudly upstairs, so I went up to see what was wrong.

Railing01

Nothing was wrong. She'd figured out how to jump up and balance on the railing all by herself, and was so pleased with herself, she wanted everyone in the house to know and come admire her mad skills.

Railing02

It wasn't long before Mika joined her. I didn't have my camera on me that first time this happened, but it's become a regular occurrence in the house now.

Railing03

Kitty collision!

Railing04

Sorry girls, not quite enough room to go around.
Mochi hopped down and let Mika have a go.

Railing05

Railing06

Railing07
Back to the tower!

Railing08
 Good times all around.

Hi Moch. That looks like fun.

Here I come!

underthebox05
No more kitties!

Crinkle Ball, Meet Box

CrinkleBox01
OMG I have a box!

CrinkleBox02
OMG I have a crinkle ball!

CrinkleBox03
Mochi: I have a brilliant idea...

CrinkleBox04
Crinkle ball, meet box.

CrinkleBox05
Bat, bat, bat.

CrinkleBox06
Pounce!

CrinkleBox07
All kinds of good times.
