  1. Sounds like you’ll have to get him a friend… or at least convince him you did, if getting him an actual furry or feathered companion is out of the question. Is it? Because the Baby Cat settled nicely after he got his first pets (guinea pigs, if you must knowβ€”he was wonderful with them, and so protective!) and really mellowed/matured when we got him a kitten to rear as his own. But if a warm companion isn’t an option, what about one of those battery operated toys meant to make them think you’re playing with them? Like the laser pointers or teasers that whip around on their ownβ€”would something like that help? You could still sit quietly nearby, participating in the illusion, but you’d be doing other things (like blogging!)

    • He actually has a friend — sometimes she’s willing to play with him, but she’s a few years older (we adopted them together, he was 11 months, she was 3) and not always as willing to roughhouse with him. I’d love to get a small dog, or another young cat, but we’re limited to 2 for now.
      I do want to try a battery operated toy, though! He’s been doing a bit better now that he has a cat tree, but he still needs a lot of engagement to keep him out of my plants, lol.

  2. LOL! My Nutmeg used to do many of the same things your Pyewacket does, but as he got older, he settled in just a tad LOL! I giggled through most of of this. Just like a cat to do those things! LOL!

    • I’m really hoping Pye settles down a bit… Don’t get me wrong, I love the goofy things he gets up to, but man are some of my plants starting to look worse for wear, lol. He’s still young, though — only about a year and a half — so I think we’ve got a lot of time yet!

  3. What an awesome read! haha! And I get you, I have a tiger (my sweet name for him) running around in the house. And when I work, in my Studio, bullying me :-) When I am photographing flat lays on the ground (I know I’m asking for it), he loves to play with the props I carefully lay out, aaaarh.
    So he got his own instagram now :-) (@kuskatslittlehelper) Luckily it’s getting cold and he is demanding human heat on the lap, like now. Wish you all the best and lots of cuddles!

    • I think there’s just something about orange tabbies, lol. Every one I’ve ever known has been such a goofball! I’ll have to check out his instagram — my guys don’t have their own (yet), but they show up on mine a lot. :)

  4. My cat’s favorite thing to do is to balance all legs at the corner of her litter box when she takes a dump, then leap with such force out of there that the whole box tips onto her back and she comes screeching out into the living room with a back full of cat litter. Good times!

    • Oh no! I don’t think Pye could perch on a box — he’d never get all fifteen or so pounds of himself up there. He’s dusty enough as it is just from digging, I can imagine what a whole cat full of litter must be like, lol!
