A Busy-Box for Cats

I took out the busy-box for some intellectual stimulation a couple of times this morning.  First time on the bed; second time on the bench by the window.  Romeo particularly, likes this toy.  I have to mention that Romeo is my quiet boy, and he hardly ever gets excited about anything.  He usually just likes to make himself comfortable somewhere – anywhere – and looks beautiful.  But, he is very sweet.  When he wants my attention, he stretches out his paw to me when I’m sitting, taps me on my shoulder so gently and voices his request with his gentle “mow.”

 

Looking for one of the toys.

Next stop, the bench.

Hmm, what do I do now?

Oh yeah, there's that toy I liked before.

It's not that easy to get it out.

Something more interesting is going on outside.

Oh, it's only those white Ibises again.

I think I'll take some time out and relax.  Playing is tiring.

I like being next to you, Mom.

And so, ends another day being busy with the busy-box!

  1. I’ve seen the busy box before…….I love the idea of it – them sticking their paws in and grabbing goodies sometimes without even knowing what it is! Keeps their fabulous imaginations working and their paws busy. Romeo is beautiful.

    • Thanks, Pam. Yes, Romeo is. His blue eyes, framed by the white and then the blue/gray is striking. I don’t even remember when or where I got that busy box. A long time ago. I keep it in my closet, and take it out only rarely. So, when I do, it’s something new. I keep different balls, and the tiny little fish in it. Did you read the post about “Pet Zone?” That’s another one I keep in the closet and don’t take out that often. You’ll see how they enjoyed it, especially Rusty.

    Romeo, one of my cats, enjoys playing with the “busy-box” occasionally. Even though he is a quiet boy, there are times when he shows interest in a toy – not for long, but he does. I try to make it a habit to keep my camera close at hand, just in case “magic” happens. I hope you enjoy.

Meow! Purr!
