I have previously mentioned that Isis liked to get into the laundry basket to play her game after I emptied it of laundry to fold.
Somewhere in the last couple of years, I’ve altered my habit; instead of putting the basket on its base on the bench after emptying the laundry to fold, I’ve started setting it on the floor on its side instead.
So now, to play, Isis jumps onto the bed amidst the laundry to fold and pretends like she wants to be petted. Or that she can be petted. But once the hand comes out, she rolls on her back and it’s on.
Well, I have a black belt in a martial art. I should have no problem with this game. I even established some ground rules.
The main point of the game is for me to try to touch her, and she tries to prevent it.
I am pretty good at this game, although I use the two-handed “Look at this hand–whilst the other pokes you!” method which does not earn me double points.
Not that I get too much of a high score going. That kitty is fast!
