The cats vs the iPad

A couple weeks ago I was catching up on one of my fur-friend bloggers, Mr. Bowie, who had recently posted about his first selfie using an app. So this past weekend I downloaded Cat Selfie on the iPad and set the cats loose.

Chubbs usually doesn’t care for activities like this. She usually sits off the side with a surly look on her face. This time was really no different but she did paw at it a few times.


She bored quickly and wandered off, yelling as she did so.


It took Roma a while to show any interest in it. She goes crazy for lasers and shiny things so it surprised me she didn’t immediately pounce. She wandered over but sat a good distance away and just stared at it. As we waited, watching Roma, Zu got in on the action.


I let her play until she switched from shoving her nose against the screen to pawing at it. Roma had lost interest and scampered off. Being a people-cat though she soon returned to the room and this time sat right next to the screen.





*The videos are a little blurry. I wasn’t paying attention to the screen.

Right before I started this post I decided to look through the pictures to delete blurry ones and pick the ones that get the honor of being posted here. I began scrolling through them one by one (to see them close up) but each one was just of the ceiling and an ear so to save time I backed out to view them as a group and noticed my camera roll said I had over 600 pictures. I usually do have a lot of pictures on my phone because I forget to delete them but just the other day I spent time deleting & transferring pictures and had proudly brought that number down to 108 pictures. So I scrolled and scrolled and then scrolled some more. While Roma had been sitting on the screen the app had take 500+ pictures of her ear!

UntitledI guess now I know better than to let her sit on it for an extended amount of time!

Happy Friday to all!

    Mr. Bowie isn’t interested in CatSelfie anymore. But it’s too hot to play I guess…
