Kitty Olympics

Lily staged her own Olympics this week, although I think her version is better suited to the Summer rather than Winter Games. Miss Lil has several toys she likes, but this little hard-foam ball has emerged as the clear favorite. She bats it around - and over and under and through - everything in the house, often carrying it in her mouth from room to room until she finds the perfect spot to play. At night, she brings me the ball, drops it in my lap and waits for me to throw it or drop it, so she can chase it and bring it back. In the mornings she brings it with her when she comes into the bedroom to wake me up. She guards it jealously from the other cats, even though they've never shown the slightest interest in her treasure. When she really gets going, she'll run into walls, fall off furniture - most often landing on her face - and crash through doors, skidding on the tile floors, unable to stop. She puts so much time and effort into her training schedule, it's exhausting - and hilarious - to watch. I hope all the Winter Olympics athletes have as much fun at their games as Miss Lil does.
