Sly Pie At the Ticket Booth

"If you'd like to pass, tunnel
toll is five bags of catnip"

Wordless Wednesday – Battle of the Tunnels

We’re finally joining the Wordless Wednesday BlogPaws hop for some hump day fun. Today features Sly Pie at his ‘pretend’ ticket booth at the entrance to the ground tunnel and he takes his job quite seriously. Anyone who tries to pass without paying the fee gets a powder puff.

“If you’d like to pass, tunnel toll is five bags of catnip please.”

“Okay, let’s see who is trying to sneak in from the south entrance. All looks clear”

But the tables are turned on the bridge tunnel. Will Sly be allowed to pass?

George is on the other side, I wonder if he will let me in.”


Two cats meet at the tunnel

Sly: “Please Sir George, can I pass through?” George: “Condo”s taken kiddo, move along now son”

Two cats meet in tunnel

“Um, what do you think folks, should I let the little guy pass?


All cats have their favorite spots that they take ownership of at certain times of the day. What’s your favorite kitty spots and where do they like to hang out for some ‘me’ time?

Chirpy Cats

We are ten chirpy felines sharing our space with two humans who adore us. We love to share tips on connecting cats and their people, as well as ideas on cat environment enrichment and other fun stuff.


    • Heh heh the neighbour’s dog sometimes comes into our yard and watches kitties in their tunnels. I wonder what he’s thinking MOL

  • What a great outdoor space you have Sly and George! we’re sure you will finally agree about that tunnel, but taking time to admire your lovely garden is good too..


  • We just hopped over here from BlogPaws. What a terrific and cute blog you have. We are very happy to meet you. That tunnel is terrific, especially as that appears to be catnip growing right next to that tunnel! It appears as if you have outdone us eight with nine kitties. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Thank you so much! Yes it’s the catnip tunnel πŸ™‚
      Likewise very happy to meet you. Love your poetry and your content. Oh and by the way, little Sly here is actually our tenth addition (oops, not supposed to have happened) but it’s all the husband’s doing MOL! πŸ˜€
      A pawshake from Earl Grey, Sarabi, Mr Jack, George, Scout, Jimmy Fancy Feet, Charlie, two bros Ollie and Baggy and lastly, Sly Pie

  • Such cuties, maybe you could switch places. My Joanie charges me a toll to go past her on the stairs πŸ™‚

        • Heh heh you made me MOL with this one. Scout, our tortie, tries the same thing with Mr Jack, but then he wrestles her down, she screams blue murder, then they groom and kiss and make up and all is good πŸ˜€

  • Awesome blog! i check out your website every other day, it is my source for all my kitty needs.

  • Hehe, Shadow is new to the brofur thing, but already he is finding a way to keep his favorite sniffing spots.

    Sarah, Shadow, and Stealth

    • I hopped over to your blog, glad to hear he is taking those baby steps, or rather baby paws, towards bonding with his new brofur πŸ™‚
      He is one lucky adventure kitty

    • Thank you! The tunnels were not part of our first build. Each year we keep adding something to it and this summer, we decided on the tunnels. It”s really great fun for them and your kitty Popoki, is going to love it. I loved reading her story.

  • This is quite the decision! Maybe the two of you should just sit right there and play a game together. That would be fun, wouldn’t it? Then again, if he does have catnip, it would be a good trade.
