Happy Birthday Scooby. I can’t believe it is time to put the trolley photo up again! (I could make a new one but why mess with tradition?) Scooby was five years old when I got him from the shelter so I have no youngish photos of him. I got a copy of his medical records so I know how old he is. Eleven years old.
Several years back I posted these videos of Scooby and the vacuum. Since there are plenty of new people browsing around the Feline Cafe–no masks required, I have posted these today to once again illustrate that Scooby likes the vacuum. He is a real annoyance as you can see trying to vacuum as he won’t even get out of the way for it. He likes to play with the wand as well. So there you have it– video and audio proof! No, he is NOT deaf! No matter how quietly you try to open a tin of cat food, he can hear it and come running out of a dead sleep! As a bonus, today I add a video of my clockwork squirrel on the dining room table. He goes much faster if he is wound up tighter, but I am afraid to break the spring. If you do not have audio working, you can hear the squirrel chew his nuts. His eyes used to roll around but alas no more!
I add yet another photo below of Scooby from Jan 4 2020 where he predicts what the year will be like for us all.
Who is Scooby the Leash Tabby? Where did he come from? What is the story with Scooby? Christmas time he received a new Tartan harness. It was just what he wanted! He was tired of the pink one binding under his front legs, and this one has velcro. He also wanted to look like Spike the Scottish Black Cat .When I adopted him from the shelter, he was already leash trained. When I first got a leash out, he got all excited and purred and stood still while he was fitted up. That was the clue.
Escaping from the Catio is futile. Many have tried. None have succeeded! The wood panels are merely replaced with new ones. The Warden is ever watchful!
