A few months ago, we bought a toy for the cats called the Fling-ama-String. It’s basically an electronic toy that flips a piece of string at the cat, reels it back in and then starts the whole process over again.

We thought Olive would love it and Hazel would be terrified of it. Surprisingly, the exact opposite turned out to be true.

We turned the bad boy on and Hazel ran up to it, started to “meow” with all her might and proceeded to beat the living crap out of the thing. Meanwhile, Olive stayed crouched in a corner, terrified. Strange, huh?

We haven’t bought any fancy electronic toys since then. Recently, Olive found a stick that was left over from a 4th of July bottle rocket and has been carrying it around in her mouth. I guess it’s the simple things she’s after.
