Would you believe both him and his brother Lugosi are going to be 18 years old in July? Sadly, Lugosi is not even half as active as Spider, but every cat is different, just like us humans! 🙂
Not bad for a 17 year old! Spider is still very active and playful at his advanced age… ??? . #cats #oldcats #oldcatsrule #oldcatsrock #tabbies #tabbycats #gatos #katzen #katt #neko #ilovecats #kitties #cute #pets #animals #catstagram #catsofinstagram #catlover #catlady #catsoflanzarote #jump #jumpingcat #playful #playing #mycats #catlife #meow
A couple of funny pics of Lugosi and Spider jumping to catch a fly… 🙂
No brother… THIS is how it´s done!
Spider is a 15 year old “grandad”, but he´s still soooo playful! He loves playing with the leaves outside that the wind blows around…
Lugosi is getting old (14 1/2 now). His last all over checkup revealed he has arthrosis in his upper spine and he just can´t jump as high as he used to anymore. In particular, he has fallen off so many times in the last few months trying to get up to the sink area where the cats have their water bowl (they won´t drink their water anywhere else).
So I have now built him some “Senior Cat Steps”. It was very simple to make out of MDF board, some nails, some cheap IKEA carpeting/mats, glue, and a roll of stick-on covering for the side, plus some dampener pads underneath to cut down the noise when it´s slid across the floor. It´s not perfect, but it´s so much nicer than the cardboard box that I had put there before. And I am glad to report that he does use it all the time now, and it really helps him get up to his water bowl. 🙂
Lugosi approved! 🙂
I LOL´d. And so will you!
“I see dead
people cats….. awww no, itÂ´s just my bro Spider, moving at super speed!
Just a little animation I made from photos of Spider jumping after his favourite toy! 🙂
Spider´s favourite toys: crinkly mylar balls. 🙂
Of course, they are the mostest fun when a human is there to throw them so he can jump high in the air after them!
It´s fantastic that Lugosi and Spider are still so playful at almost 13 years of age, especially Spider. 🙂
