Tiggs’ Housemates: Cory and Co

For those who don’t know my resident cats, I thought you might like a look; for those who do, I thought you might like new pics of them. Angel, the only female, foster-mom extraordinaire to orphaned babycats Trick-or-Treat, the resident clown and massage-therapist Cory, aka Cory-Bear, who understands nothing but love and friendship and playing Original post blogged on b2evolution.

Tiggs’ Nest

Last night, we set up a radio, with the volume on low, in Tiggs’ room. I made her a sleepy-spot on the bed underneath a reading lamp with a 60-watt bulb in it, something one of my cats with similar short fine fur (now across the Rainbow Bridge) used to love, and she took to her artificial sunbeam immediately! I found her snuggled into it this morning. She gets up to eat, play, soak up sun on the windowsill, but goes right back to that nest, even when I turned the lamp off through the day when the sun was…

At the Ceiling Gates

Now that he’s figured out how to get from the top of the fridge to the top of the cupboards, it’s one of his new favourite places in all the world….   Original post blogged on b2evolution.

Making a Fun Toy Better

I tossed a couple of sheets of tissue paper over Cory’s toy track, currently in the “heart” configuration, while working on kitty toy design yesterday. Apparently, that made it irresistable: he hunted that ball around the track until he was exhausted, got up and did it again, and as soon as I replaced the utterly shredded paper today, he went right back at it, as you can see from this… although with me right there, he just *had* to come over and say hi and get a quick cuddle before resuming!

Cory the R&D Assistant

Cory helping me with Research and Development by testing the durability of a prototype toy mouse — filled with a mixture of rice and catnip, and warmed in the microwave. (Want one? steph (at) felineharmony (dot) info. ) Not long before this video, he was carrying it around the living room looking for the best spot to settle down and kill it. 20 Feb 2010 Original post blogged on b2evolution.

Cory’s New Toy

Cory has been playing with this since he was very small: I’ve been seeing this thing repeatedly at Petsmart when getting gushifuds or volunteering at adopt-a-thons: I couldn’t resist. It cost less than the two of us splurging on burgers and fries for supper. Clearly, it’s a big hit. This was taken about five minutes after we set it on the floor — he went after it in a matter of seconds, but it took him a moment to adjust to the differences. Original post blogged on b2evolution.

Morning With Cats

Twenty minutes before the alarm is due to go off, I wake up to find my face being exfoliated vigorously — er, washed with much love and dedication by Angel, who typically sleeps on my pillow. As long as she stays off the sensitive skin right around my eyes and mouth, I can handle that, especially when she’s purring like an earthquake. A moment later, she extends her attentions to my hair, by grabbing amouthful and yanking — ever seen a cat try to pull a knot loose in their fur? She’s a big, powerful girl, who can put a…
