Our friends were visiting Yuriy while I was on vacation for a photoshoot for their baby daughter. Of course this couldn't go without cats in the picture. Photos are being processed still, but once I saw this one I knew I have to share it with you...

And the "Favorite Stalone's Toy Reward" goes [...insert intriguing drum sound here...] to a "Ethical Hi Flying Skinneeez Squirrel 14-Inch Stuffingless Dog Toy".
Yes, it is a dog toy. He actually has 4 of toys like this(others being: a raccoon, a squirrel w/o rope ring and a beaver), but the squirrel in a rope ring seems to be the favorite toy of the moment. At leasts it looks like it from the photo reportages from home.
Stalone carries it around, plays with it, feeds it, hides it everywhere and even sleeps with it, as you can see illustrated on photos below.

While I am on vacation, my better half seems decided to not waste time for nothing and clean his home office table. Other 2 quarters decided this can't be done without them...
Shiva: "I think you should remove this mouse pad":
Stalone: "Is this a cup holder, or a cat holder?":
Stalone: "This spot is a bit too small for me, don't you think?":
Stalone: "This way is a way better!":
UPDATED Jan 24: One more photo I just received, which is related to the topic:

I was somewhat nervous about how cats will manage to survive 3 weeks of me being away from home. Well... According to photo reports I am receiving almost every day, they are doing great.
Being busy occupying my side of the bed:
Making sure Yuriy gets his food cooked to order:
Checking if fridge is closed properly:
Verifying incoming mail:
Attending litter box:
All seems to be in order...

I am currently visiting my parents in Ukraine for Christmas and New Year holidays. And my brother's cat was doing the same. So I had my fair share of cat socializing until she went back home.
I must say, after maine coons she looked and felt so small, tiny cat, I called her micro cat: not more than a half of small chair:
Micro cat is very active (energizer), very focused on her goals (to catch a parrot and to get in to a bathroom) and can play with pretty much everything (walnuts, or two, piece of paper, curtains, house plants, and such).
And after her busy cat day, she was catching her sleeps like pretty much any cat would do, like so:
Or even so:
Yesterday she went back home, and I must say I miss her already: tiny energized ball of fur.
