fort fun for Oliver

You might remember, last March, I built a blanket fort for the inside kitties. They loved it. The only problem was this:


Oliver wasn't able to play with us. So, with it being a beautiful day and me not needing to work, it was time for Oliver to have some fun...


the fort begins to take shape...


Every fort's gotta be stocked with yummy provisions...


and it's only polite to share...


and then came time for some nip...


Whoa!


this bud's got some kick!


and then time to play...


meanwhile, an intruder arrives...


and begins gathering tactical information...


the siege begins...


the fort is stormed...


the staring contest ensues...


notice the intensity...


in the eyes...


Pierre collapses under the pressure...


Uncle!


time to unwind...


nipfest...


wheeee...



 meanwhile, Oliver slips out the back and collapses the fort from above... 


Oliver has retaken the fort....


a collapsed fort is still a fun fort...


fort time is fun!!

and in the end we're still pals!


And this time, Theo got to watch all the fun with desire in his eyes.

The only thing missing from this time that would have made it better, was beautiful MK. He would have loved to play with us too. So sad he's no longer with us. My heart still cries for him.

Cats are so fun! Purrfect way to spend a day off!

  1. Oliver and Pierre have a better life outside with you than many indoor kitties have. :-) You have an amazing heart, you truly do.

  3. When I die, I want to come back as a cat in your yard! You do such cool things with ALL of your kitties! I know your heart still hurts for MK, which is a testament to your big heart full of love.

  10. You make me smile.

    That picture of Oliver before broke my heart. Now..HE got to play too. I know, he has you every day but that had just looked so wistful. (I am a total slave to cats)

  11. what a great Daddy you are!!! My heart breaks too that MK wasn't there to play :( Your fort reminded me of what I used to do as a child. I used to put a blanket over our picnic table outside and I would sit under it and pretend I was in a fort in a magical forest. Thanks for bringing back such fun memories!
