Cats are odd aren't they? I remember the simple pleasure of enticing any of my three cats into a bag (paper or plastic) or carry-all. Once the cat was "loaded in", we both had fun in the transporting from one room to another. The only slight disadvantage (from my point of view) is that the cat would usually enter that wide-eyed state of fun and games which led to the grabbing of anything that moved with both claw-extended paws, such as fingers or thumbs. It added zest to the game to see how far around the house I could transport-a-cat while only suffering minor blood loss.


Maybe they like to be enveloped in kitty breath.

Maybe they like the oxygen deprivation. I've heard that cats like to nap in places with high CO2 levels like grow rooms.

The Celestial Monochord


Editor's Note: Speaking of oxygen deprivation, I should point out that Georgia and Henry are allowed to play astronaut only under adult human supervision. They are both inordinately fond of poisons and other hazardous materials (Georgia adores bleach, for example), so we do not quite trust their instincts. The other day, we went to The Simpson's movie and accidentally left the fishbowl within their reach ... we were on pins and needles until we got home to check on them.



Whee, thanks for the great idea - my kitties are in need for new toys and such. A fishbowl. Perfect.


Interesting that your female kitteh likes teh bleach...
I have a female qat who, until recently, was muy muy pregnant - in her last throes of bloated late stage impending kitten delivery, she went bananas for my hands after I'd used some bleach cleaning up around the place.
Even though the smell was much diluted (like, I'd really pour undiluted bleach on my skin?), she positively raped my fingers, biting and snuzzling away, all the while holding my wrists captive with extended claws and purring madly like a mad thing.
I can only surmise that the smell from the bleach reminds her of horny tomcat smell...
