|Here I’m showing hoomins some proper yoga poses....upward cat!|
So here we are again and another week has just passed and hoomins as always are staying at home as per usual these strange times....although I must admit that they do seem to be going outside a bit more often then they’ve used to! Hmmm...not sure that I like it though....kinda prefer it when they are at home all the time...you know when they go outside there is always the possibility that you might need something urgently....you know like topping up your food or biscuit bowl (that Tolkien does eat a lot these days especially when it comes to biscuits....even hoomins are saying it rather frequently now by the way you can still read about our life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon) or having someone around when you need a hoomin to entertain you for example as Tolkien can be rather boring at times especially during the day as he tends to sleep a lot....even for a cat talking about another cat!
So yes I don’t think that it is really good and beneficial for the hoomins to be going out regularly more than once a week for a couple of hours only....that is of course permitted by meowself! After all they do need a little bit of fresh air now and then I guess....well, maybe!
Anymeows meowself and Tolkien think that is for the good of everybody if hoomins do stay at home all the time, you know it is safer after all for the hoomins and more beneficial to us! Besides there are many things that they can do to entertain themselves and of course they can now work from home everyday....yeap better for the hoomins to be indoors especially now that the weather would be changing soon and it would get a lot colder...
So and to make the hoomins life more interesting and stimulating so they don’t get bored and feel the urge to go outside I have come up with some stimulating and entertaining activities for them to try on a daily basis (OK, Tolkien might have also given a little paw too).
|Sometimes Tolkien can be rather silly...wearing feathers on the head, really!|
You know you need to give them daily tasks to do such as to keep them stimulated and also entertained...such as helping them to do their daily exercising routine by adding some more extra exercises for them to do like avoiding the cat for example…But along with the physical exercises I’m also trying to provide them with some interesting and mentally stimulating games too so they don’t get bored.
One of my best ones is the poolet exercise....you know after you’ve have been to the litter box you are then leaving around in the house in different locations small poolets, little presents for the hoomins to find before someone steps on them and makes a mess in the house....or in the worst case scenario if they do not succeed themselves in finding them in time then either Tolkien or the electric vacuum would discover them instead and then the mess in the carpet would get a lot worse....you see how good my little game is? The hoomins need to use some good skills to find the little ‘presents’ such as good observation skills and memory so to figure out where those little scattered presents might be and when to expect them. As off course so to make things a lot more interesting I don’t always leave my presents around for my hoomins to find....not every time I visit one of the litter trays....no, no we don’t want to make things too easy for the hoomins of course....It is such a fun game to play and we all have so much fun especially when the hoomins don’t succeed in finding those little presents on time or when they don’t pay any attention and then they either accidentally step on them (with or without shoes) or and when they think that they are just cat biscuits they then instead use their hands to pick them up.....hoomins are so funny then! The sounds they are making.....precious! Oh those hoomins they can be so funny at times. But of course they also entertain themselves as well as this is such a fun and educational game to play!
It is also a better game of course from the just scattering of cat litter around the house game that we’ve used to play before as the hoomins now have managed to change the rules of that game by getting cat litter that it’s not so easy to scatter around the house anymore....This is why of course I had to come up with a different game instead....it is my duty after all to keep my hoomins entertained now that they are at home a lot....Although meowing at the early morning hours when they are asleep might also prove to be rather entertaining activity too especially now that my voice sounds a lot better and I can meow properly....hmmm, yes this is also something that I might need to consider as well...something new to use for the hoomins!
Anymeows time to go now as it’s getting rather late and I’m starting feeling a bit peckish too....
Purrs and meows till next time!
