Car-E plays with a toy of his choice

I’ve said my growing kitten plays with anything. This video proves that statement.

Currently, Car-E is flicking a pencil around the room.

What will be next? Come back and watch. There are more Car-E videos to come.

The straw and the strawberry

I heard that a straw could be used to push out the stem of a strawberry.

I finally tried this.

I poked the straw up from the bottom end of the strawberry, through the fruit. The stem is pushed out.

This what happens to the strawberry. A hole in the strawberry is left after the center and stem is removed.

Quite satisfying to do.

Another Car-E video

I catch only a few of this kitten’s antics. Car-E is always into some mischief. For him it’s play first, or maybe food, and then sleep.

Car-E is soft and cuddly when he falls asleep in my arms.

But he can turn into a playful biting kitten in seconds after waking.

I think he has doubled in size since coming to leave with me.

Tea with the Dames

I have wanted to view this video for a few months. I saw it for a price on Amazon Prime.

Since I didn’t want to pay to watch this I finally remembered what I could do. I borrowed it from the library. It was actually in my local library and was on the shelf. I was able to pick it up curbside the same day.

The four dames are Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright, and Dame Eileen Atkins. All these women are fantastic actresses, starting in their youth and continuing through their lives.

These four have been friends since the 1950s. In this video, they visit and talk about their lives, loves, and friendships.

It is about 86 minutes, but I wish it was longer.

I recommend this video to anyone who has enjoyed the many acting endeavors of these women.

There are limits

Sunny is a very patient dog, but there are limits when it comes to Car-E the kitten.

In this video, Sunny seems to tolerate having Car-E close, but only for a few seconds.

When he had enough kitten closeness, Sunny just got up and left.

At least, this time Sunny didn’t bark. He’s not one to bark much, so when he does I notice (see me flinch), but Car-E never pays much attention to the dog’s comments.

The only one who isn’t accepting the kitten is our other cat, Cruella. When Car-E came close to her this morning, she hissed and ran upstairs–that friendship might take some time.

Just another day in my life…nothing earthshaking.
