Hobby

Dragonheart and his ball track
Dragonheart and his ball track(Click either photo to view a larger image)

As a cat, one of my favourite hobbies is playing with my various toys. (Blogging in another favourite hobby!) One of my favourite toys is my ball track. I like this ball track because it is three toys in one! It has the ball that I enjoy batting around the track, it has the fluffy pom-pom that I enjoy tackling, and it has a wonderful cardboard scratching surface in the middle for scratching!

Wow, I'm first! Dragonheart, I wish you could teach my kitties about the joy of balls and feathers. They do like things like socks and wadded-up pieces of paper, and they are especially fond of -- perhaps I should say addicted to -- the catnip mouse. But they totally ignore balls.

bbsgirl said...

that looks like alot of fun..I'll have to try it.

yao-lin said...

I keep seeing those toys all over the various blogs. I must order my slaves to get me one. I must I must. You obviously love yours! xx

GEWELS said...

Cat Hobbies- Hmmmm, I didn't think they had any. I guess I was wrong. Too cute!

yao-lin said...

Dragonheart - in response to your comment on my blog- if your mum likes strategy games, I reckon she would probably love the sims 2. Whilst it isn't strictly a strategic game, it comes under role playing/God games and might be right up your human's alley.

Daisy said...

Trackball is a fun toy. I think playing is a very very very good hobby.

Tess Termulo said...

Cute kitty :-)

PEA said...

I haven't had a cat in so many years, I'm way behind what toys are available to them these days! That trackball does look like a lot of fun...for cats! hehe

Gattina said...

I see you still have a lot of fun with your toy !
Did your mum gave up blogging ? Is she now your secretary full time ?
What a lucky boy you are !

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

That's a fantastic toy, Dragonheart!

You look like you're concentrating really hard.

Jenny said...

Dictated by 6 year old Ellie:

I like your thing. Our cats have toys too but they don't usually play with their toys, they play with us.

Caesar and Princess said...

Dragonheart, this is a great hobby and you obviously work hard at perfecting it. I think being athletic is a great hobby, as you are very agile and energetic. This will keep you physically fit and able to help your humans!!

we hope you have a happy sunny day

Connie said...

Who could resist a ball dangling in front of you...I don't blame you for making that one of your specail hobbies.

Take care my friend,
Connie

Wow cute toy and I love your red nails.

The Meezer Gang said...

We love that toy! We have it, too...And that toy is a multi-tasking toy as well, Drake! Happy Saturday!

letha said...

Why am I not surprised at your hobby, although I would've thought sleeping would've been there.

Patti said...

At least you don't kill small mamals and birds!

Munchkin, Missy and Monte said...

angelo said...

Nermal: Hey Dragonheart that looks like a fun hobby! I've already asked for one of those, but haven't gotten it yet. I must go bug the human :) Happy Hunting!

Morgen said...

That's an awesome ball-track. Jazper's is a "hidden ball" with carpet in the middle, and no deeble-bobby thing to play with.
He uses the scratcher in the middle more than the ball track - I wonder if he'd play with the ball more if it was exposed like yours....
I posted "cat blogging" as one of my hobbies!
cheers,
Not The Mama

Kim and Oscar the Puppy Cat said...

I may have to buy Oscar that toy. He so rarely plays with toys but I bet he'd like that. Every kitty I see seems to really love that one. Dragonheart looks so cute!

I also wanted to say that your husband is doing a valuable to his Country, too. Our husband's are wonderful!

Kitikata-san said...

It looks like you are having a lot of fun with that toy!

srp said...

Mr. Rhett has a trackball that he likes to bat around and around... makes me dizzy. Other than that it seems that he and his sister like to carry balls of various sizes from the front of the house to the back rooms and back. Willow has her pipe cleaners and hair bands. The old lady Siamese have a lazy hobby... they sleep.

Thanks for stopping by.

Big Piney Woods Cats said...

Momma bought me a stand with a wire thingy and a ball on the end, but the kittens wrecked it in less than two minutes....sigh.......

That does sound like a fun hobby, Dragonheart, and you look like you're very good at it!

Hi Dragonheart. Sorry for my late visit. I've been a little busy lately.

It looks like a fun hobby. Love that nice toy you got there.

Thanks for sharing.
