Imaginary Foe?

The saying goes 'Curiosity killed the cat'. This does not apply in our home.

Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK, though timid, is one very curious cat and a busybody. He never fails to check out new things or stuff that fancies him.

Somehow there is this EJ's favourite old, very comfortable apple-green drawstring pants that seems to irk Captain Jack. Each time EJ wears it, Captain Jack would stand up fully stretched to claw the pants down or fight with its drawstring. So far the pants held up and has never gone down, luckily.

Captain Jack eyeballing the imaginary foe...
...and whack...
...whack, whack...
...sniff, sniff. Still alive?
Whack, whack, whack!

Maybe you need to put elastic in the waist of the pants, but then that would take away all the cat fun.

hahaha....that's so cute!! Blackie's imaginary foe is the wrist strap on the camera, while Yin's is the strap on the handphone. Maybe there should be a whacking contest to see who amongst the three manages to kill the imaginary foe and emerges the hero! :)

You can never be sure of drawstrings so you should always greet them with a WHAP!
