Recently I was admiring pawty dog Copper and stated that cats are not as fun as dogs. Well, Jerry did remind me that some cats do wear cute costumes (not my cats). Then I remembered a stray can named Ty who had been hanging around my neighbourhood for months. After he got over his fear of me we grew quite attached and I was able to find his home. He’d been lost for 18 months!

When I took him to his home the woman was afraid it wasn’t him because he’s now so lean. I think when he rang a bell for a treat he had her convinced he was hers and she was his. Here’s Ty with his sister Bella doing their pawty trick.

p.s. Mona really liked Ty. She would stalk him. icon_lol

Oh Kerren you have NO idea how much I needed this today! icon_lol PAWESOME! Ty and Bella are quite a team, and yes, they prove that cats CAN do fun tricks too! 

We have a bell like this for Wyatt Ray . I will have to video him trying to ring it with his monster paw. He is nowhere near as gentle with it as these sweet kitties!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
