Paper bag

Our grocery store did not have plastic bags this weekend so were using paper. I have ask many times for paper and they did not have them! We told the checker that our cats would love the toy she was sending home.

These pictures were taken at close range and do not have the best shots of the cats, but the action was taking place under the dining chair next to me. I had to hold the camera at odd angles because I was afraid that if I moved I would disrupt the fun. The first one was taken blind. I held the camera in front of the bag and clicked.

Kirby is in the bag and Angel is outside and then they swap.


Angel attacks!

Angel taking a different approach!


A little paw action.


Kirby out of the bag and Angel entering.


Angel peeking out at Kirby.


The next move was a chase through the house and now they have disappeared!


I need to learn how to get the camera into video mode quicker! This would have made a great video!

That adorable! Especially that first picture where all you can see is "eyes"!

I guess both Angel and Kirby can fight their way out of a paper bag. Awesome!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Those are great pictures but that first one is so cool - just little paws, eyes and an ear. Sometimes those blind pictures turn out awesome!

And boy that is cool that they had paper - those are great for playing it. It looks like they both had so much fun!

Oh, what fun! We hardly ever get a bag, but we are enjoying many boxes while our Nana and Grampy get ready for a Yard Sale!

Ahhh yes, nothing like a good game of "bag" to get yourself revved up.
