Midnight in the kitchen

When the kitten tots are in their beds; and Miss Jack & Ollie have turned in with me; Miss Scraps is locked in her room (for her own protection)

as I lie awake thinking of everything I apparently couldn't bother to think about while awake the last 14 hours drift off to sleep I hear it

a gloinggg, gloinng, gloinggloinggloing....

feetfeetfeetfeet, sllliiiiide, gloingggg, gloinnggloinggloing.....

And then as I peer over the edge of the bed (moving Ollie's head out of the way) I see it!

It's so fast I only get a swish  view as it flies from the doorframe from right to left!

Then left to right!   Then back again!

gloingg, gloinggg,  feetfeetfeetfeet, sliiiiiiiide


The Ol' Bat's at it again.  She's found the ping pong ball the kitten tots left under the table and now it's racing across the lino kitchen floor, the diningroom floor around the table legs (all 24 of them) and back to the kitchen where it becomes trapped and then released.

Ollie is no dummy; when Ms Stella is playing like that it's best to stay out of her way.

Cod luff her


  1. best play time IZ nite time stella...rock on ......were it that ya had 7 mor ping pong balls for maximum eeefect on yur mom purrson ♥♥♥ oh, at 3:19 AM !! ♥

  2. Stella is quite an amazing old girl!

  3. Pawsome! Exercise is soooo impawtant for us all.

  4. After bedtime is the best time to play!

  5. Ms. Stella still gots spunk!

  6. Oooo, you are so cute peeking out from your hiding spot. Yup - best to stay out of the way of the Ping Pong ball for sure.

  7. So obviously the best time to play ball!

  8. Of course exercise is necessary for kitties and the timing of the exercise along with achieving maximum volume levels is best done between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. :)

  9. Well done Ms. Stella! We kitties have to do our part to keep the beans awake at night. They just need to learn to take naps in the daytime like us, MOL

  10. it is hard when that happens isn't it. You are happy they are playing but frustrated you aren't sleeping and that isn't helping

  11. OMC...the most adorable photo ever. Our angel Thelma used to love to play in the middle of the night and we would hear her downstairs in the foyer playing and talking. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
