A pen, a window, a bedsheet, and a cat.


Fey likes to hang out on the windowsill, behind a bedsheet, and cuddled up to the air conditioner duct. She was there today when I took out a pen and started swiping it along my side of the bedsheet. This is the result:

A pen, a window, a bedsheet, and a cat.

[Video shows Fey’s silhouette batting, grasping, and biting the pen through the sheet. All sounds are just the various scraping and other noises made by the activity, there’s no words.]


About Mel Baggs

Hufflepuff. Came from the redwoods. Crochet or otherwise create constantly and compulsively. Write poetry and paint when I can. Developmentally disabled, physically and cognitively disabled. I'm not really part of any online faction or another, even ones that claim me as a member. The thing in the world most important to me is having love and compassion for other people, although I don't always measure up to my own standards there by a longshot. And individual specific actions and situations and contexts matter a lot more to me than broadly-spoken abstract words and ideas about a topic. My father died in 2014 and that has changed my life a lot in ways that are still evolving, but I wear a lot of his clothes and hats every day since he died and have shown no sign of stopping soon.

  1. Fey is a cat full of playfulness and curiosity!! She is certainly trying to discern what that “thing” is moving on the other side of the sheet. :) Looks like a great interactive game that is at once stimulating to her and exercises her “observe then capture” cat instincts.

  2. In particular she has always enjoyed any game where we’re on the opposite sides of something cloth. She also likes it if I wave things around underneath the door-curtain to my room with me on one side and her on the other. I think it enhances the sense of surprise for her.
