Tammy is spending more time in the house which means she gets bored. She just sits and has that bored stare to her.
To help alleviate her boredom
We buy her expensive toys but she prefers these simple toys like the strip of cloth or even a twist tie which is one of her favorites. On occasion she will look to see if we are around.
If she doesn't see us then she will be bad by stretching her claws on the furniture.
We get after her for it and she doesn't seem to do it as much as she use to. I see her using the trees in the yard more often now for the claw scratching. Unfortunately the couch has taken a bit of a beating as can be seen in the picture and May has ordered some furniture slip covers from Sears. This behavior seems to be universal among cats. Notice how long her tail is in the above picture.
Tonight we had a light supper because of the large meal on board the riverboat.
