Kitties get bored! Views of the outside can entertain them.
How many times do we hear our friends say, I’m bored. Or better yet, when you were a kid, can you remember saying, ‘I’m bored’. This human sure can remember saying that endless times, and I sooooo wish, I had time to be bored, now.
With a full-time job, keeping up my blog ‘Paws for Reflection’, taking care of five cats and a big house, the word bored is not in my vocabulary any more.
Kitties get bored
The kitties, on the other hand, have lots of time of their paws. Just like people with lots of time on their hands, they get bored. And bored kitties, just like humans, can get into lots of mischief.
As responsible cat owners, it’s up to us to be sure they are entertained. While we may invest a cat-load of dollars into fancy cat trees and toys, sometimes their entertainment comes from a great view of the outside world. While we humans can occupy our minds with the latest happenings of years, days, or months ago, cats don’t hold on to memories. They live in the moment. And when it’s not meal or nap time, they are looking for mental stimulation so they don’t get bored.
At the Paws household, we have a huge picture window in our kitchen, and all the kitties enjoy time sharing that spot. While it does not provide the best sun, it does provide some great viewing opps.
This winter was no different. Today, as we join The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie, blog hop, we want to share some of our views from this past winter. While many of these selfies are not of the Paws’ kitties, we thought we’d share some of the mega photos we’ve taken over the course of this past winter.
It was a long one, and the kitties were very amused when they saw a flock of turkeys going through the back yard. They were not as thrilled about seeing the snow bury the TV dish. And the Snowy Owl, well, that’s just something they’ve never seen before (neither had their human).
Today, we share some of our many photos taken this past winter, capturing the kitties enjoying the outside, from the inside out.
Kitties get bored, too! Providing views of the outside world can help entertain them.
