My intrepid mancats, Dylan and Dante have been hard at work, each in their own way. They're used to pulling their weight around here, anyway, and today is no different.
So, here's what my mancats have been up to on this LaPURR Day.
Dylan has been entertaining Grampa before we have dinner. Playing with cats always brings a smile to Grampa's face, and Dylan's doing a very good job at that.
Grampa's using the new furry dangle toy that Dylan got for his birthday.
C'mon Grampa! You have to make it dance!
Even though Grampa's dangling isn't up to scratch, Dylan is!!!
That's better Grampa! Now you've got the idea.
What a mancat won't do, just to entertain the elderly!
Meanwhile, Dante is outside, hot on the trail of a wild and wily beast.
His 'Spock ears' detect movement close by.
PURRhaps if he lies low, the beastie will show itself.
Aha! There it be!!!
What beady little eyes it has! And it's cunning knows no equal. It's also very fleet of feet and ...
... before Dante can react, it's up the tree!
PURRhaps some bigger prey might be easier to catch, especially when they're not so smart, like this evil squirrel!
Drats! Foiled again!
Sometimes you can work hard, every day -- and even on LaPURR Day -- but you don't get much reward. Dante had the thrill of the hunt, but nothing to show for it in the end.
Dylan didn't work nearly as hard, but he made someone smile, and that is worth much more an escapist fantasy (Dante's fantasy is to catch a beast, but it always escapes!). I guess the quality of your reward depends on what you're really after.
Happy LaPURR Day, efurryone!
