The Closet Player

Hi everybuddy. The lady with the yellow hair caught me playing with some catnip toys the other day. I was licking them and kicking them like crazy. Of course I stopped as soon as she saw me and started taking pictures.

Y’see…she doesn’t see me playing with toys very much though she knows I do because she finds my toys in different places from where they were.

I’m a Closet Player. No…that doesn’t mean I play in the closet. It means I play when I’m not being watched.

How ‘bout you? Do you like being watched when you play? Or are you a Closet Player like me?

  1. We’re kind of “all over the house” players!

  2. You are a most good looking kitty and very photogenic. You can play with your toys anyway you want and your mom doesn’t mind one bit.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

  3. How very cat of you! Yes, finding toys in odd places when no one has been seen playing with them is common around here too.

  4. Stealth catnip action! Good strategy, it helps keep the humans guessing, now how did that get here?

  5. Zoey, your expression in that shot is priceless, and incredibly cute!

  7. I want my human to join in when I play!

  8. Zoey…you are just too funny!!! I love that look on your face

  9. That’s the way to go, always look cute and playful until the camera/phone comes out then be a statue 🙂

    Stay safe.

  10. My Human knows I’ve been at play as she drags my toys out from under chairs, beds, dressers,
    tables … takes a broom-handle to swish under the fridge or other skinny-spots … and yes, even
    looks into real closets if their doors had been left slightly open at any time. A toy just might end
    up anywhere anytime!

  11. I still play some but not much these days, but I do like to watch the others at playtime! You are very cute sweet Zoey!

  13. Zoey, your expression looks like you are thinking, “Oh no, she caught me playing!”

  14. You’re so cute Zoey. Teddy does that too. I pull out the camera and he stops playing.

  15. As long as you’re playing, that’s all that matters! Mudpie enjoys being watched…she’s kind of a show off 🙂

  16. You do look a little nipped out. 🙂

  17. Some things you’ve got to keep to yourself, Zoey!

  18. He!! Hee!! You reminds me of Jo Jo! Sometimes Mom sees her playing, but then as soon as she sees Mom, she stops! We thought she was the only one!

  19. Hi Zoey…..I mostly play when nobody sees me and Mom knows that like your Mom does – my toys are in different spots than the last time they were seen! I also will play with Mom with a string toy or something like that but mostly I like making up my own games in private!

    Hugs, Teddy

  20. I’m glad Zoe. Admiral was like that too.

  21. Amarula is a closet player too!! I wake up and find all her stuffed mice on my bed! She plays with them and deposits them in the night!

  22. Samantha was the same way. I think she only played with toys at night when no one could see her!

  23. Gracie is 20 years old, so she’s sort of a “play when she feels like it: cat. Ava, who is 3, is a “play at will” cat. 🙂

  24. Just depends on our moods. Mostly closet player@, though. Mom is always surprised by the number of toys she finds spread through the house. Zoey you look adorable with your hugs, round eyes.

  25. My boys are not so much closet players. Especially Goro, he plays whenever he wants to and often wants me to join 🙂

  26. None of us have ever been shy about playing with toys. I think it’s interesting that you prefer to be stealthy with your toys.
