Kelly and the Blue Ribbon Snake! 2011Posted: April 16, 2012 | |
That’s certainly a wild look on Kelly’s face as she tosses the ribbon in the air, catches it in her mouth and swats it with her paw! Look at those eyes! I surely wouldn’t want to be prey of any sort to look up and see that coming at me. She’s actually standing on her hind legs and I was lucky to catch her in mid swing as she leaped up from a crouch with this little piece of ribbon that totally set her off. She had been bouncing around on it as if her paws had springs and whirling like a dervish. Who needs toys if a bit of ribbon can do this?
Remember, this is shy, gentle Kelly torturing this piece of ribbon. But she was always my main mouser until the Big Four came along. She’s such a sweet kitty, I guess she saves all her tortitude for when it’s needed most. Still, at 17, I’m glad to see her playing as wildly as she did when she was younger. What an imagination to turn a scrap of blue satin ribbon into a snake!
Kelly is coming back around to these wild and playful ways!
Unless I have linked the photo to something else, which is rare with daily photos, you can click the photo to see a larger version. I save them at 1000 pixels maximum dimension, and at that size the photos are nearly twice the dimension and you can see more detail in many of the photos I post. Please remember if you download or share, my name and the link back to the original photo should always appear with it.
