Two weeks ago, I posted photos and video of Björn pushing Jacoby on a swing
Well, turns out Jake isn’t the only swinging cat in our family. About a month after that first outing, Kalle and I took both Jake and Angel out for a walk. There is this one big, flat, basket-like swing in one play area in our apartment area, so we took Jake and Angel over to it to see what they thought of it.
Angel stayed in it! That was the first hurdle.
Then Kalle started pushing.
Of course, Jake was totes fine with that.
Angel was…less fine with it. But she tried.
She really tried.
But she could only take so much swinging.
So finally she bailed from the swing.
Jake was perfectly happy to keep on swinging, though.
Happy? He loved it!
I mean, look at him!
Here’s a short video (click on the image to see it…and apologies for the non-landscape orientation; I forgot) of Jake and Angel on the swing with Kalle.
The first summer we were here, we took Jacoby out on his leash to check out the area around our apartment.
Björn pushed Jake on a swing.
And…Jake loved it.
I know it seems silly, but photos don’t lie…
…Jake loved being pushed in the swing by Björn. Don’t believe me?
Here’s a video.
And here is another video. Tell me that’s a cat who doesn’t want pushes on the swing?
Alfred had three sisters and a brother in his litter. He was, quite literally, never alone as a kitten.
Even before he was born, they were their own gang of five (Click for video).
He always had at least one littermate around to play with, eat with, sleep with…everything with.
Logan had just one sister, but they were always together, too.
They were really sweet together with Naina (Click for video).
Freddy came home with us on 6 June, and then I picked Logan up on 11 June, five days later. Even though he rode the train back with us and Jacoby, I am sure Freddy was pretty lonely for those five days.
Freddy and Jake were right there to meet Logan the moment I unzipped the carrier.
Freddy was quick to introduce himself to the newcomer.
This was Freddy and Logan the first night Logan moved in.
This was the next morning.
Three days later, they were playing together as though they had known each other their entire lives!
Not only playing…
…but sleeping together, too!
Here are a couple of short videos of the two together. They really love each other! I can’t imagine having one without the other (Click for videos).
