Cat on the rampage

I was so frazzled that I called Barn-E the wrong name in this video. It wasn’t Car-E trying to tear apart my computer wires, it was Barn-E. It’s easy to mix up their names. They are all troublemakers.

Today all my house pets are trying to drive me crazy with Barn-E as their leader.

I can’t turn around without one or the other getting into trouble.

It’s for sure they are working together. It’s like they want me to tear my hair out.

Don’t they know I’m the one who brings them food, water, and toys?

I think not, because Stella just ran off with my kitchen towel. She expects me to chase her. I don’t think I have the strength right now.

I think I’ll take a nap, but I’ll have to keep one eye open, just in case. Who knows? They might mount an offensive.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Big fish in the tank

Barn-E is checking out my fish. He would take a dive inside if there wasn’t a lid on the tank.

The tank looks so much cleaner since I brought home two snails. They came the same day Stella moved into this house.

World Wrestling

I can’t believe Barn-E the cat puts up with this rough play from Stella. No cat claws ever come out.

I do worry that someday Stella will hurt the cat, but so far, she knows how far she can go.

I’ve seen them sleeping in the same vicinity, not together, but close enough. I wonder if they will ever cuddle together.

Barn-E is a tough cat. I have scratches to prove that. I wonder why he’ll use his claws on me, but not the dog.

Right now, everyone is calm. That’s good because I have to catch up on my picture book writing class. The dog/cat wrestling is really distracting.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.

Short cat & dog video

Sometimes Barn-E and Stella’s playtime sounds like they are bringing down the house. This video is pretty mild compared to those wild times.

Right now the house is quiet. I sent the cats upstairs and Stella is alone. She’s tearing up brown packaging paper for fun. Better that than anything important.

Cat in the bag

Barn-E can hardly wait for me to empty the grocery bag. He often tries to jump inside the bag before I’m done.

This time he didn’t tear it to bits.

If I left it out long enough, after Barn-E’s playtime it wouldn’t look much like a bag at the end of the day.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
