I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    When I first read “visiting” with the kitties, I imagined great disaster – I didn’t remember the ball.

      Sara said Chickie got into Dasha’s room while Dasha was in the cage. She said Dasha was squished up against the cage as close to Chickie as she could get, with her little arm stretched out and her paws grasping at the cat. Chickie was terrified. Sara said Chickie finally eased up to the cage, reached through, and tapped Dasha on the head with her soft-paw, then ran away. Sara’s theory is that a prey animal that isn’t afraid of a predator freaks the predator out. Sara says when they take Dasha to the park in her ball, she chases the dogs. But we didn’t take any chances.

    Hi Dasha. I think you and your ball scared the cats away! Do you ever just, you know, walk?

      Dasha NEVER just walks! She runs, she scurries, she scampers, she “popcorns” (what #4 Daughter calls it when Dasha hops up and down), she Parkours on the walls, furnitures, and fixtures…. But she never just walks! lol

        Good grief. She sounds like a force of nature. No wonder the cats are terrified. :/

        Wishing you all a Safe and Happy New Year!

          She’s a prey animal from the high Andes, so her superpowers are speed and evasion. PLUS, in Dasha’s particular case, she’s never been in the wild, so she doesn’t KNOW she’s a prey animal. She thinks she’s the Queen of the World. It’s an awesome combination. lol

            Ah, I see the light. My dog Mogi is part chihuahua and has no idea she isn’t a real dog. Clearly neither she nor Dasha have low self esteem problems. πŸ˜‰

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE a chinchilla. Can’t imagine how my kitty would react to a live ball flying around the house!! πŸ˜‰

      If the little rodent didn’t drop poops everywhere she went, I’d love to see a longer-term interaction. She gets overheated in the ball, too, though. It’s vented (which is how the little poops get out), but scampering throws off a lot of heat, and chinchillas can’t get above about 74F.
