Exercise on Sunday and an Award!

It's Gypsy here, chilling out after Australia's national day. Like our friend Pablo wrote on his blog yesterday, Australia Day commemorates the coming of cats to Australia 220 years ago. Nowadays, there's a lot of BBQing of meat that happens on this day, which is great for us cats, since we love eating meat. However, all that eating means that a little exercise on the day after the BBQ is a good idea. As senior cat, I felt it was part of my duty to offer a little instruction to Tasha.

Here I am showing my little sister the correct technique for playing with a feather wand.

Here is Tasha demonstrating her own skills (after instruction by me) with the feather wand:Diamond, a Russian Blue kitty in Adelaide, South Australia very kindly gave us the Bloggers of the World Award:
This award was originally created by Colin at Life. He said when he created it that all people had to do was link back to him as the original point of reference.
Thank you to Diamond for passing this Award onto us. We'd like to pass this onto the following international bloggers:
  • Sleeping Mommy who juggles kids, dog, cats (Mo & Jasmine) and husband along with updating her blog.

  • Kitikata-san who is a ginger girl kitty like Tasha.

  • Boots, DeeDee and Dexter (Cats) and Freckles the dog at Boots and the Interlopers. They're fairly new bloggers like us.

Arthur shortly woke up, ate and collapsed again on a bed ! You have summer now, so you are not in hibernation like our European cats !

Hi, Gypsy & Tasha! Thank you for stopping by my place and checking in. Come by for a headbutt and an ear-scritch anytime!

Neat feather-thingy...wonder if I can persuade Treater to get one for me?

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Ah I love FEATHERS! Who cares about techniques!

Howdy from Texas orange brother. Thanks stopping by my place. We lizard wrangling types have a lot in common. Lizards must be monitored at all times.

Glad you are having a good life down under.

Happy belated Australia Day!

Congratulations on your award! You're a good teacher!

Why is it that we don't have BBQs like everyone else? The BBQ at my place is mostly covered by a slab. The only good thing about it is that I get to lie on top to catch some sun. *sigh*

Congratulations on your award. You have taught your sister well, Gypsy. That feather wand doesn't stand a chance now.
