Balloon animals

You might recall I was given a pretty darn nifty remote controlled helicopter last weekend for my birthday this week.

Our littlest kitten was so inspired, she’s found another way to get herself into the air:

No helicopter required.

Yes, she was pretty darn delighted when we brought the balloon home to her:

O hai balloon!

Her attempt to transform into a kangaroo to catch it was quite impressive, also:

You’d better not be photoshopping out the balloon string and making “invisible dancing partner” lolcats to make me look silly.

The look of contempt she gave the helicopter box as she came down was priceless.

    I think Richmond could do with a kitty on their team that can jump that high right now…

  2. What’s in the box? πŸ˜€

  3. The helicopter.

  4. Don’t get me started on Richmond.

    Is she attempting to hunt down the elusive CeilingCat?

  5. That first photo – LOLOLOLOL…

    What do you do about their noses in the summer Jeremy? I used to colour my cats noses with a non toxic marker..

    I think you are on to something lykurgus – perhaps she thinks the balloon is the perfect mechanism to seek out Ceiling Cat.

  7. Their noses? Oh, you mean the sun – they’re inside cats. They come out with us in the back courtyard occasionally, but not for very long, and we keep an eye on them to make sure they’re not baking their noses.

    Have you considered taking them for walks to the park on a leash? Sure, you’ll get some odd looks but the cats love it. πŸ™‚

  9. I reckon house cats are happy enough as they are. I will give a bit of advice though, have some grass handy for them to chew on, helps with digestion….apparently.

    And grass is easy to get too – just be careful to not give them certain types of weeds as it can have a laxative effect.

    Cat safe grass can be found at any plant nursery, most hardware stores and most pet stores.
