During winter we spend much more time at home for the weekends, which in our case means having more play moments with Juno and being a nuisance to her sleep. That extra time has also brought an additional amount of cat (cute) pheromones affecting our minds, and making us think that a week dedicated to post things about cats, present in our daily life, would be the best of ideas. This is how “Catweek” has born!
For the first post – don’t worry, we are affected by cats’ cuteness but will restrain ourselves to “only” three posts – we have Juno, the little furry ball responsible for this series. Last December during a handmade market held in Barcelona called Festivalet, we (acting like Santa’s elfs) bought a gray felt ball as a Christmas present for Juno.
The ball has a hole on top that is big enough for almost any cat to jump inside, also you can cut the hole bigger (with simple craft scissors) if you think that those extra pounds gained during Christmas dinners are also affecting your kitty. Well, there’s not much more to say to describe the ball, but we can explain how Juno adores it. From the first moment she was curious about it, and jumped inside without hesitation. She usually sleeps inside, and demands our attention to pet her while purring non-stop. In case you are curious about them the shop is called rronrron (ronroneo means purr in Spanish).
For the pictures we moved the ball into the center of the living room’s carpet, which arose Juno’s distrust and at the same time decreased her collaborative mood. Well, with a spoonful of sugar we finally can share with you Juno’s new house inside her bigger home :)
We know that we are lucky to have some lovely cat ladies reading our blog, do you have any hideout for your cats?
Juno realized that something was happening when the ball moved from its usual spot (next to the window curtains) and ran quickly to hide under the sofa.
After all she is quite a Sherlock at heart, so had to search for any evidence that weird things were happening.
The nice guy from rronroon gave us two felt lefties from other balls that look like snakes and are a good encouragement to use the ball as a playroom.
In the middle of a bloddy battle against the snake.
If everything fails you can always show her the way.
…and this is what happens 5 seconds after making her do something.
Although it was not in her usual spot, she can’t resist her new humble house.
And lots of petting!
