Catweek: Juno in a ball

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.

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!

    How cute! I love the “action shot” of Juno leaping from her ball. Gatsby and Kala have a little cat tree with a house that they take turns sleeping in and defending against each other. I know they’d prefer to have one each, but until we move into a bigger space, they’re going to have to learn to share ;)

      Ooh! thanks! Yay for catweeks!

  5. Ahaha, these are the cutest pictures ever! I’ve always loved those felt balls and was very close to getting my kitty one when she was alive. What type of cat is Juno? She’s darling!

      We were hesitant as it is so difficult to buy for a cat as he/she will prefer a simple cardbox instead of the more expensive thing that is inside. We were relived when we saw that she liked it so much. Juno is an exotic shorthair cat, thanks for the sweet words :)

      Thank you Katie, glad that you stopped at our home as well :) Juno is meowing a welcome to you!

    Oh how adorable!! Luna, the cat over at my parents is way too stubborn to crawl into a little ball like this. I wish she would though, Juno looks really awesome and adorable in it…or jumping out of it. And I definitely approve of catweek!! :D

      Juno is also very stubborn as Luna, that’s why if we make her enter she jumps immediately outside. However, if we leave the ball (nowhere near us) she enters eagerly to sleep and purr :) Thanks Louise for giving us the thumbs up for the catweek!!!

  9. Fiona ADDS...

    eeep! so perfect, I think my future cat will definitely need one of these :)

      Thanks!! Very excited for your future cat! He/she will be the king/queen of your awesome blog. I see very good things coming from the cat pheromones once you have her/him :)

    This little kitty is so amazingly cute. I’ve always wanted a grumpy Persian cat. Something about them makes me feel like I need to try and make them happy all the time. I love your blog! Amazing stuff. I will be creeping on it a lot now. :p

      Thanks Sally! The sofa is really her safe place, almost every post should feature her there because it always starts like that :)

  12. Sara ADDS...

    so much cuteness,my heart is so happy <3

    Juno is so pretty and seems so smart :D
    my two cats enjoy sleeping everywhere,the male one Simão has his own couch in the terrace to scratch and sleep and Matilde owns the rest of the terrace!
    Inside the house their favorite spot is always on top of my chest/face/head,making it hard sometimes to write something on my computer when in bed ahahah

      Thanks Luis! The rronroon has been the best gift for Juno we ever gave her, she even insists on laying on her beloved felt home during summer ;)

  14. Hola, soy Luis de rronrron, quería preguntaros si cabe la posibilidad de que utilizase alguna de vuestras fotos en nuestra página de facebook o en alguna de nuestras e-shops (etsy o bigcartel) mencionando siempre, de la forma que vosotros queráis, por supuesto, al autor de la imagen.
