the thing under the rug

My Hu-Mom loves to play this game with us called "the thing under the rug". It is really her arm, but it is fun, we get to attack the carpet, with all of our claws and teeth...and she doesnt mind!

Anyways, last night, Mom was playing "the thing under the rug", when the little boy human woke up and asked her to bring him something called a tissue. So, while Mom was away, I decided to to try to be the "thing under the rug". It was fun!

When Mom came back...she couldnt see me, but I think she guessed that I was under the rug, because she got the stringy thing out and started wiggling it by the edge of the rug. So I did my best to get it!

As you can see, Socks and Abby came to see what was going on. Abby played with my tail for a few, while Socks played with the stringy thing and even jumped om me....It was fun!

For a few minutes, I layed perfectly still...Mom pretended that she couldnt see me...I just waited to find something to pounce on...which ended up being Socks. I dont think he liked it though. After all that fun, I took a break and let Socks play...

I just love playing "thing under the rug", I hope that whoever adopts me likes to play "thing under the rug" too.

Great game. We play thing under the covers. And I learned I can play rough with hands IF they have gloves on. We have a small rug in the bafroom and sometimes somefing makes small wrinkles in it, but when I pounce, they just move away! My woman's way at the other end of the rug, so it can't be her... can it?
