Monty playing with his ‘ballie’

Posted by HelenEdith on December 8, 2009

Monty carrying his 'ballie'

Why is it that we descend into baby-talk with our cats…? I’m as guilty as the next person, as “ball” has descended into “ballie” when talking to Monty.

Monty just loves his “ballie”, and as you can see, he trots around carrying it in his mouth. He has various “ballies” to play with, including a bouncy multi-coloured one, a spangly one, and a whole set of yellow ones. He loves those yellow ones, but seems to have lost them all for them moment. My bet is that they will turn up under various articles of furniture. Maybe Monty even knows where some of them are!

The yellow balls which are such a hit are the ammunition from a child’s game that Stephen brought home from the charity shop. The launcher was broken, so they couldn’t sell the toy, and we have found a very good use for the balls. 🙂 In fact, those balls are so popular that it would almost be worth buying a working version of the toy just to obtain more of them.

Now there’s an interesting thought: if we had a working version of the toy, we could launch the balls; and Monty and his brother Rolo could chase after them!
