It just goes to show what unique personalities our little furballs have!

My Emily loves interactive games. She especially likes it when we play bat-the-ball. I roll one of those litte foil crackly balls to her and she swats it back. She especially likes it when I miss and have to go retrieve it. She will play this game for as long as 10 minutes at a time before she get bored and wanders off. She also thinks everyone who comes to the house has come to see her, so she's right there when the doorbell rings.

Eddie is the shy guy. He needs to check out new people from a safe distance before he dedides if he wants to introduce himself or not. He's also my chewer. He especially loves those little stuffed animal toys--he carries them around and makes strange little noises while he has one in his mouth. And, of course, he chews on them, so they don't last very long.

He also loves to chew on paper, which can be problematic since I work from home. He checks the in/out box on my desk regularly for stray edges that he can gnaw on. (Needless to say, checks go in a drawer.)

He also has very definite ideas about where his toys belong. In his food dish is one favorite place, and I never know what I'll find in or on the bed when I wake up in the morning...


Carol, Emily, & Eddie

>>Bentley--our thread eater...we have an embroidery machine which is all wrapped up tight when not in use...but somehow...he manages to get in there and every time we go to use it, he has cut at least 5 or 6 of the lines...he has also had to have emergency surgery to remove a wad he though was a tasty treat...because of him...all of our animals are now insured!!!

>>Alastair--thief--but steals only things in zip-loc bags. I have witnessed him drag a gallon bag full of crayons across the house.

>>Finster--thief--but steals only dish towels, wash cloths and socks...and he is not particular about where the socks are, on the floor, dirty laundry...or still on your feet!!! He drags them and deposits them by the food dish.
