Mika and Mochi Turn THREE!

Mika and Mochi turned three years old this month (August 8th)! We always try to spoil them a little extra on their birthday, so I picked up a couple new mice for them from Petco. One of the mice was remote controlled and they went wild for it, watching with anticipation as it sped across the floor and then pouncing it and flinging it about.

They were pretty keen on the normal mice as well.

After some mouse playing we took the girls to the park. Honestly, I think Mika enjoys the car ride as much if not more than the park. She looooves the car.

At one point a very large (and very well behaved) dog passed by. That always adds some excitement to an outing. It usually involves some frizzing, body flattening, and wide staring eyes.

The sky was gorgeous that evening, so I couldn't help but snag some shots of it.

 Of course no park outing is complete without some stick playing. Even Mochi got into it.

While usually I walk Mika and Matt walks Mochi, sometimes we switch cats part way through an outing. Today was one such outing.

In the end, a good time was had by all. Happy birthday, spotty kitty girls! <3

Chilling at the Park

Haven't posted any park outing pictures in awhile, so figured it was time.

Mika loves to chase sticks when they are dragged along the ground. It's her favorite park game and our usual method for wearing her out before we go home. She always sits with her captured stick like this while she catches her breath after a run.

I have don't remember why Mochi has that look on her face, but I think it's adorable. I love when she flattens her ears back like that.

They don't usually sit together so prettily for so long, so I had to take advantage of the opportunity while I could. Thanks for posing, ladies!
