Car-E goes fishing

Blue Fish, my beta, has caught the eye of Car-E.

Good thing that the fish knows to go to the bottom of the bowl whenever the kitten comes to play.

It’s also a good thing that when Car-E puts his paw in the water he reacts, quickly pulling back.

I’m pretty sure Blue Fish is safe, but I will keep an eye on Car-E when he gets close.

Car-E at play

Sometimes I have to be Car-E-free. If I’m going in and out the door, I don’t want him slipping past me.

He’s so fast! He would be out in the yard before I could stop him. To keep him safe I have to think ahead of my growing kitten.

Sometimes I lock Car-E in a room he can not escape while I’m busy. That’s usually the bathroom.

For a short time without Car-E under my feet I give him a treat in his toy.

Food is very important to this kitten. He’ll do anything for a kitty treat.

When I put a few pieces in his toy, he works hard to get at the kibble.

Car-E is an adventerous cat.

He’s is often underfoot. This is one way to distract him from getting in the way. Too bad my groceries didn’t get put away because I was too busy watching Car-E.

The clown of the house makes me laugh.

Going fishing

Car-E the kitten is interested in the fish in the fish tank.

He came close when I had the hood back to feed them today so I let him have a good look.

I thought he might take a dive in. You know the old phrase. Curiosity killed the cat.

Well, Car-E was curious, but he only touched the water. It still was interesting watching him investigate the tank.

A snapshot

A cell phone with a camera is a handy thing to have. That’s the only way I’m able to capture photos of moving critters.

Still, getting the phone out of my pocket hinders me some. If it has gone cock-eyed in my pocket, I’ll fumble with it and miss out on something cute or interesting.

I haven’t gotten many good photos of butterflies this year. Though many butterflies flutter by, I usually miss them. Only getting a blur in the air.

Yesterday, a yellow tail landed at my feet multiple times. It was almost like it wanted its photo taken. Too bad I had left the phone on the kitchen table. I didn’t even have a chance for a blurry photo.

Most photos these days are of Car-E. That kitten is cute and often seems to pose for me. He also comes out as a blur, too, because he’s very fast when scooting after a toy.

Here Car-E and Othello are. The old cat batted the kitten away and Car-E fell over like he was forcefully struck.

As soon as Othello turned his back, Car-E leaped to his feet and went playfully after Othello again, only to end up on the floor again. He may give in, but Car-E doesn’t give up.

If only I could capture all that I witness with my camera. I guess I have to be happy with the ones that I get…..

A butterfly just fluttered by my window. I think I go hunting it with my camera.

Bye for now.

Watch out fish!

If Car-E had his way he’d be my the fish tank, swimming with my three fish. I can imagine that happening. A lot of splashing would have ensued with a very wet cat emerging.

(The fish are twenty-nine cent feeder fish. I don’t buy expensive fish anymore because they usually die.)

Five months ago, I started out with six feeder fish. I’m down to 3. Hopefully, they will live to see another day. Anyway, these can easily be replaced for a few pennies.

Car-E squeezed behind the tank. too, but I wasn’t fast enough to capture that image. I’ll try again when he returns to watch the fish again.

The kitten even tapped on the hood to see if there was a way inside the tank. Luckily, for all involved the top was secure.

Some house pets entertain others. Right now these fish are entertaining my kitten, Car-E and they all are entertaining me.
