Mine rank from a lump on a log to never sits still. :D

Mitzi, just lays around mostly but that's understandable for a 15 year old cat. On occasion I will see her chasing one of her toys around and I try to encourage her to be active with the kitty be good stick.

Fallon isn't too active but if there's a flying bug in sight, she's leaping through the air to catch it.

Sampson likes to sprawl out on the floor and contort himself into all kinds of strange positions but if he's in a frisky mood, it sounds like a herd of buffalo running through the house.

Peaches can only do so much because of her leg but she gets moving with the best of them. She has this little leopard spotted mouse she likes to stalk and attack and used to stalk the dogs.

Xavier hardly ever sits still. I swear sometimes you'd think he has a fire cracker under his rear because he'll jump up from laying down all of a sudden and race through the house, back and forth till he gets tired. If he's not playing with a toy he's terrorizing on of the other cats.

Chester is 18 and Lizzy is 15 so they pretty much just lay around all day. Every once in a while, though, something will get into them and they'll tear through the house.

Jupiter used to be really hyper but has settled down quite a bit.

Emily is constantly getting into something (she's currently trying to squeeze into the bottom drawer of my desk - it's only open about 3 inches :rolleyes: ) or picking fights with Jupiter. Sometimes Jupiter will start it, but even then when she decides to stop, Emily keeps at it (Emily had Jupiter in a pretty good headlock the other day - I though poor Jupiter was going to pass out so I had to break it up).

Misty usually tears through the house all day terrorizing the dogs! But at 10PM she's ready for bed and gets all sleepy so it's off to bed I go too!!!!

Sadie , well I don't know what she does outside, but inside all she does is eat, sleep, beg to go out, and growl and the other animals....

Amos and Sam are 3 and 2 respectively.
They do lay around a lot, especially on me!! However, they like to "play fight" with each other on a daily basis and whenever that starts up... watch out! They race each other up and down the stairs, around the house, pounce on each other.... it can be quite amusing....
But at the end, they bathe each other which is sweet but weird since they are both males!

My cats are both 5 years old, a male and female, and they play chase quite a bit. They also bathe each other and sleep on me. Precious, the female loves to play fetch. I say "Go get the mousie!" and throw it. She always knows where it's going to land, even if it ricochets! The mousie is a piece of rolled up cardboard. She plays independently with the catniip "mousies," and will run to get them if I throw them, but won't bring them to me to throw--the cardboard mousies are for fetching. The soft ones are for throwing up in the air and rolling around and kicking! The male just watches. His favorite activity is finding the shortest way to my lap. What a needy little boy!

All of my cats are lazy!! I wish that they would play more, but all they want to do is sleep. They usually get a little wound up in the evening, and start chasing each other--then they swat at each other. I usually yell at them because I don't want them to hurt each other. Maybe I should leave them go at it--at least they are up and moving! :lol:

I think I'd just let them play, kitty, unless there's growling and hissing or fur flying! Of course I'd break it up if it got too rough. They're like children. Sometimes they can go too far, but most of the time it's just play, and they remain friends. Isn't it typical that they like to start playing just when we want peace and quiet? They have to keep us in our places!

I know--I'm too overprotective. There is never fur flying--they usually don't even come close to hitting each other, but I hate to see them fight. I bet they are actually just playing and I am being a mean mom. :D Also, they don't have front claws, so how much damage could they do? (I didn't declaw them--they came that way.) I know that my boy cat can smack pretty hard, though, so the girls might see some stars!! :lol:

My kitten goes through spurts throughout the day. In the morning when we get up he's CRAZY, then he has a late morning nap. Early afternoon he's CRAZY again. He goes back to sleep around 7 at night and he is at his craziest at 11pm and on as long as I am up. If I go to bed then he's velcro kitten and right beside me purring. He's a great little guy. VERY velcroey though........my boyfriend gets jealous because if he tries to get him to cuddle with him he just gets up and comes to me. Hahaha.

I read on the internet that Himalayans don't take to just one person--but I don't believe it. Both my girls love me most and know who really takes care of them! :D Kitty doesn't like anyone..even himself.

I've never heard them called that. I adopted them both. I have always loved the eyes and coloring of the Himalayans, but I didn't set out to intentionally adopt Himalayans. Sophie has a very smashed face--she looks sort of Persian--so she must be flat faced. :D Kittygirl has a sweet little face--she is very tiny--so I am guessing that she must be doll faced. :D That is very interesting--I guess I need to read up on that! Thanks for the info, though.

From what I have been told, the doll faced Persian was the original Persian cat, with a "normal" looking cat's face. Then the breeders bred for a flatter and flatter face until the face became "smooshed," as it is now. The people who show their Persians discourage the breeding of the doll faced Persian or Himalayan. There are others who breed only the doll faces. If your cat looks like the show Persians she is not a doll faced Himalayan.
