Cricket in Her Crying Place

I wrote about how our older cat Cricket has taken to random crying fits at night, although really this is not entirely true as we can be in the living room and she is right alongside us and she'll start crying.

But in particular she has this peculiar habit of getting under a table, against the wall, facing our bedroom and crying. I can only imagine that she thinks the table is affording her some sort of protection I don't know. We have nicknamed the place, well her "Crying Place".

Chris wakes up very early and she feeds Cricket. Well I think her kitty clock is just a little out of synch and she thinks whenever she awakes it's feeding time.

She has been good for the past couple of nights, but just when I least expect it.

I have two.. cleverly named Whitey and Blacky. Whitey- the dim one- likes to go to the balcony and cry. But I thought it was only singing. Because he doesn't seem sad or anything. And when I look at him (it gets loud!) he looks so innocent about it, embarrassed even. Cats can be so weird.

She looks so incredibly soft & fluffy! Is she a snuggler-lap cat?

Cricket snuggly, LOL! Sometimes she will jump on my lap, but short of back scratches she just wants to sleep.
We finally figured out why she was crying. We gave the cats some little furry balls (Like pom poms) to play with. Cricket has been crying at the balls for some reason. She even carries one in her mouth and howls. I don't get it.
