Feline Friday: Come Play!

Feline Friday is hosted by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Steve's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!
Link, a/k/a LinkerStinker, is a 3-year-old, but you'd never know it by the way he plays.  He acts like a kitten, and he loved playing with the sheets on the bed.

He's loved this sheet until it has a tear in it -- it's the one i pull up over the bed to keep fur off of the blankets.  He dives under and comes up through the hole he has torn.

Here he is full in a game of hide-and-seek:



Mom!  Don't quit playing to take a pic!

  9. Our Cashew has a 6th sense for knowing when I am making the beds. he comes running and dives up under the sheets, and he will lay their hiding under all the blankets - just waiting for someone to come poke him. LOL
    I have thrown out one set that he tore before we trimmed his nails!
