i has a egg
darkwolfie came up with this really fun game for Max last night, and tonight I got to play it with him.

He took one of those plastic Easter eggs that breaks into two pieces and put a plastic bottle cap in it so it rattles. Then he stood at the bottom of the stairs while Max was on them and threw it up to him, and Max batted it back.

CUTEST. THING. EVAR. It takes him a minute to get into it, and he gets tired after about ten minutes, but playing catch with him is freaking hilarious. He does catch it, too -- I tried to throw the egg onto the step above the one he was sitting on, and he snatched it out of midair! At one point he knocked it off the steps through the banister, onto the floor below, and he looked so confused and sad... "Whare iz egg?"

Three months ago, he would have just watched the egg bounce. He's such a funny, happy kitty now, and I'm so, so lucky.

i feel: happy happy

Reminds me of a cat I used to know. He loved to watch things fall. He would get his paws on one of those tiny clear caps like you used to find on the top of a Poland Spring sport bottle, and drop it down the stairs. Tink-a-tink, tink, tink, tink, as it bounced all the way down the wooden stairs. When it reached the bottom he'd run down and bring it back to the top of the stairs, then start all over. He could keep this up for hours.

Max was funny... if you threw it up too high, he wouldn't go get it. I'm not sure I'd play this game if the stairs weren't carpeted; I'd be afraid that he'd slip and either gouge the crap out of the stairs trying to save himself or wrench something falling.

I baby that cat, but he deserves it.
