Get That Mouse!

Of course, I took more than I have posted, but it is kind of a series of photos, so that is why I have posted so many.  You can see how they are both looking at the mouse.  Then Emmy looks at me.  I have several of these.  As I mentioned, I couldn’t really see what I was getting, I was just pressing the button.  Smokey’s attention never waivers.  Then you see she gets low . . .then she gets a little lower, then . . .a little pounce.

When they were brought into the shelter they weighed in at 9.8 pounds and 8.8 pounds.  At the last vet check they came in at 7.44 pounds and 5.5 pounds.  Using the hold ’em and weight method, Smokey is back up to 9.8.  And Emmy is at 7 pounds. They are much happier and eating better.  Plus they have a lot more room to run around.  And boy, do they run around.  They tear through the house at top speeds.  I wish we had something to clock them.  They get going so fast!

They are very fun.  They want to play a lot.  So I am constantly being interrupted to play.  They are very good mousers.  Smokey is very good at knowing where the mouse will be and she can catch it without having to move a lot.  She has slowed down a little bit with having gone from 7.4 pounds to 9.8.  Esmeralda is a flier.  She is always in the air.  All four paws either in a long jump or in a really high pounce.  It is amazing.  They both would be great hunters.

Well, I know this type of post is far and away from health, wellness, and fitness, but our cats do bring a lot of laughter and joy into our lives.  I like to share.Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, PiYo, Nia Technique, Smokey and EsmeraldaDance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, PiYo, Nia Technique, Smokey and Esmeralda

After she got it, she had to roll around with it as cats do.  Her trophy.  Emmy looks unimpressed!

Show me pictures of your pet!  Either e-mail them to me so I can post them, or post a link so we can see them.  It is fun to share pictures of our furry family members!
