Cats - Cute Cat Tails - The Wandering Bunny

The Babies When They Won Their Kitten Of The Month Award

I'm not saying they're the culprits, though.

The children have their favorite toys, of course, and one of the top contenders is the white terrycloth bunny. We keep all their toys in a milk crate (sturdy, plastic, washable) under the dinner-wagon, and they periodically rummage around and retrieve one or another and cart it about for nefarious play purposes.

Lately, the white terrycloth bunny has become the object of someone's obsessive affections. We're still trying to figure out who's responsible, but at least once a day we discover the hapless bun either in the bed or somewhere close by, on the floor. Whenever we find it, we toss it down the stairs, hoping they'll take the hint and leave the bedroom uncluttered by their silly toys. No such luck. Moments later, it seems, the bunny is back.

Sometimes the bunnynapper drops the bunny at some midpoint - on the stairs to the bedroom, or in the bathroom because they're trying to sneak it in unseen.

Last week, apparently, someone had decided the bunny needed a wash. They dropped it quite neatly in the laundry basket, and it was duly laundered, hung by an ear from the clothesline, and returned all dry and pristine. Hopefully they won't reject it for smelling too clothesline-fresh.

Update: I am reliably informed that it smells just fine to them - someone dropped it on the steps between bedroom and foyer. Whoever could it be?

Such a sweet picture. Which two did these grow up to be? (I have almost as much trouble keeping your kidz straight as Lizzy's 922).

This is Madu and Gojira as babies. They loved each other so much, back then. These days they mainly quarrel noisily, with much slamming into walls and furniture. Hellions.

Every now and then my two Siamese would burst into evasive action, roaring through the apartment. I think I saw one of them literally bounce of a wall at one point. They'd fight and spit and wrassle around, then in the next hour they'd be cleaning each other's ears and would sleep curled around each other. I loved them so much. Such good boys, they were.

I laughed out loud at the bunny in the laundry basket! And such kittens!! Just plain born to seduce the hapless humans...
