blanket fort fun!

For the first time in a long long time, we actually had a Fall season and it was delightful! It was like having an extended summer, with four or five extra sunny weekends that allowed me to get lots of outside projects done before the winter rains set in. This was rough on the kitties though as there was much less time available for them. All along I promised them that the first rainy weekend I would give myself fully to them, to play and hang out all weekend together. Well guess what? It rained most of the day today!

So I made good on my promise and we built a fort and played and played!


The kitties love playing fort! And I just happen to love it too!



Inside, Willow and I play.



Until Nahum tries to come inside





Rose watches the fun from a safe distance.


But she can't resist and has to play!


Don't remind her that she's suppose to be scared of the humans!


Theo and Willow enjoy some nip in the fort!


A little while later, Willow turned traitor and tried to storm the fort.








After her initial siege failed, Willow tried another approach... 


she tried to capture my heart with her powerful cutes...


and she succeeded!

  2. What a wonderful photo series!

    We want to live at your place, our human doesn't play like that with us!

  3. Woo-hoo! Now that's 'playing with your cats'. There should be a National Make Your Cat a Fort Day. I used to do this with our kids but there is a long winter ahead so thanks for the reminder.

  4. That is the best Fort EVER! And I am happy that Rose decided to sort of join in on the funs.

    And Willow's muscular and beautiful arm as she tries to storm the fort...oh, how irresistable! I would have to cede control to her.

    What a wonderful day of playing. I would love to have a Fort like that and I'll ask my mom if we can have one too.

    Purrs to all of you. Say hello to Oliver and his family for me too.

  10. We think that looks like a great way to spend a rainy day! The human says it is better than sleeping all day. Moi?

  11. Wow! What a great cave. I know it is a fort, but I think all stuff like that is a cave like my ancestors used to live in.

    I like the big cat eyes shots!

  13. Big smile from me too -- as always when I visit your blog. And I thought Willow looked too innocent to do such things!
