Play Time!

  Uh, oh! With all the rain we've been having, it looks like another critter has made its way into my house... It's a good thing I have kitties to take care of the problem! Jump Steady to the rescue!

...Jump? Wanna get a mouse for me?

Um, Jump Steady? We need your help here!

I'm tired, leave me alone...

You do know that you're a cat, and that cats are supposed to chase mice, right? You should wake up and do your job!

Yes, but I'm also a cat, and cats never do what you want them to. You should know better.

But, I think you'd have a lot of fun if you would wake up for a little while...

Fun? I thought that was only for waking you up at 3 a.m.!

*Yawn* Fine... If you say so... This better be worth it...

Oh, a mouse!  

Yes, Jump Steady, but we need you to play with the mouse so it's visible in the photo. Can you try a little harder, please?

Let me get this over with faster... I'll just bite its head off so I can go back to sleep.

Well, you can't actually kill it, Jump. It's just a toy I crocheted so you will stop waking me up at 3 a.m. playing with your favorite jingle ball.

What? A toy? For me? It's PLAY TIME!

Yes, but, um... Jump, we still need a decent picture of you playing with the toy so I can use it in the pattern post!

Oh, you mean this whole thing was a setup? Fine. I'll take my new toy over where it blends into the carpet. Then I'll go back to sleep... I need to prepare for more 3 a.m. jingle-ball-playing, after all...

  Well, I tried. He really does love the new mouse toy when the camera isn't on him. But he is a cat after all... They only pose for pictures when you don't want them to. 

Happy Crocheting!
