Remember that ridiculous Richard Marx song?

"Wherever you go, whatever you do, I will be right here waiting for you" etc.

Well, the sentiment is the same, but the song does not remain so. This is how Miss Dorothy greeted me Monday after her first full day alone while I was at work.

She is enamored of her foam green ball and chases it all over the bedroom: under the bed, under the armoire, across the floor, behind the screen. Almost without fail, it ends up behind her food and water bowl, which are raised off the floor in one of those slightly fancy, spoiled kitty feeding systems (the other cats eat and drink from gravity containers--no judgment!).


What to do now?

Get at it from the side?

Nope, get at it from behind.

One little push...

...and out it comes...

Well, how would YOU do it?


  1. I also fell in love with Dorothy and if I would have lived closer (NJ), I would have had to fight you for her! ;) But now I get to keep on her through another blog! Yay!

  2. Beautiful *and* smart, that Dorothy. :)

  3. Hi Dorothy! You are such a cutie girl - it is great that she is settling in so well. Trixie thinks she is very brave to go over by the mirror already - Trixie was very afraid of our mirrored closet doors when she first got here. And that video was great - she is so gorgeous and tiny, just so cute!

  4. You could put a rag under and behind the food bowl to keep the ball from geiting bhhind it.


  5. I actually did that after awhile because she was getting so carried away with chasing it to the bowls and then having to rescue it, and she is usually impatient because she MUST have it immediately, that she was knocking into the water bowl and spilling it all over the place. I remedied that whole situation by putting the other gravity water dispenser in the room. Now all I have to worry about is finding a soaked foam ball in there. :-\
