It is spring time and charlie is going bonkers. He so wants to catch a bug. And that means making heroic leaps, climbing furniture, and leaving general chaos along the way. If your back happens to be a convenient point on the way to a bug; then he’ll use it as a launching post. So a common cry around the house is OW because of his sharp claws. When there are no bugs to catch; he makes do with other things for play. First photo shows him stealing a bracelet from my beading tray. This is followed by a series of not great photos where he is playing with the dogs squeaky ball. And then finally he took a break to sit next to his good friend Sophia. Charlie may be a pest; but he is also one of the friendliest cats we’ve ever had. And he makes us laugh; so I suppose we will keep him.
