A little ball, a lot of fun


My cat loves a game of catch. She will play with these little balls for hours batting them too and fro across the carpet and miaowing very loudly at me to join in. I throw them for her to catch in her paws and chase around the room. We have several of these balls. They get lost very quickly so every so often we have to pull out the furniture and rescue half a dozen or so under sofas, beds and sideboards.

I wanted to paint this photograph I took for the Mixed Media Monday 'play things' challenge but ran out of time, so here's a little digital play instead.

I'm off to find cat and ball...

  1. I think cats must have invented playing because no creature seems to have more fun that cats do! Great photo and it makes me miss my cat Merlin terribly. He was a black and white just like yours.

  2. Love how this turned out! I think we have twin kitties. They look alike and mine does the same thing. We're always looking for a toy she can't toss under the 500 lb cabinet!

  7. Hello! Hey from your post below- I think you must have turned the pic into a 'solar negative' or something like that. You left a comment for me on my blog about using a gel transer medium which I can not find anywhere....do you mind sharing with me the brand name of the product you use????
