Housebound domestic cats need to relieve energy, aggression and/or stress. (Drugs are not the answer – not unless there is a severe problem.)
Outdoors they can run or hunt. They can scale trees and catch leaves. They need to find alternatives indoors.
Every cat is different. Morgan prefers live things. She will pounce on Hazel or Mollie or kill insects. (Our home is officially an insect-free site.) She also likes to pester people.
Hazel runs (sort of) in circles. It’s what she does.
Mollie is different. She has this bunny friend. It was sitting on an end table when she made it her own. That was years ago.
She and Bunny have had great adventures. Down the steps. Up the steps. Out in the porch. Back in the bedroom. Except for dirty ears which are the grabbing spots, it’s in pristine condition. It has a nose and the eyes are intact.
It’s not even a catnip bunny!
I need a stuffed bunny to release my stress! Jose Cuervo will have to do!
