    "Titan" is my nickname for the big cat currently roaming at Zeerover's in Savaneta, Aruba. He's a bit grumpy and likes to sleep atop the cars from time to time. Here's his photo: http://bentpage.wordpress.com/2010/03/09/titan-aruba/

    Bon dia.

    Dan - from your description Titan has it really good! Especially
    here on the island! We have seen a lot of 'orange' cats lately -
    before there were a lot of black and white ones. But now
    we are on the dutch color theme!

    Give him an 'air pat' for me when you see him.

    Thought this interesting if you, like us find toys in the water bowls , or in our case water fountain. We also have one who loves to splash and another who dips his paw and then gets the water off the paw.

    "TOY DUNKING
    Some cats drop their favourite toys in their water bowl or on top of their food. The most likely explanation seems to be the cat seeing the feeding area as the safest or most central place in its indoor territory and “storing” its toy there after playtime! Often the dunked toy is the one it has just finished playing with. Sometimes it is the cat’s favourite toy that it’s found lying around elsewhere. If tidying up sounds far-fetched, I know a cat that stored its toy in a small basket after playtime which at least kept the toy dry!

    Other explanations may apply to individual cats. Some like the texture of the toy when it is wet. Some enjoy playing with water and dipping a paw or dunking a toy makes ripples that are fun to watch. A floating toy may be fun to play with. Some breeds are more attracted to water than others; Turkish Vans and Bengals particularly seem to enjoy water play.

    Sugar, a domestic longhair is remarkable for being a able to hunt and retrieve despite having been born blind. She also dunks her toys in her water dish, perhaps enjoying the tactile stimulus. ...

    Okay, here is a new one for you ...

    Dd made a small flat disk out of paper, square in shape.

    It actually flies like a Frisbee, but unlike a Frisbee in the house, will not knock over or break anything.

    The dumb cats love to chase the thing!!!

    One of the cats was playing soccer in the kitchen last night.
    On first glance it appeared that he was playing with a slice off the end of an onion, flat side down.
    It was actually an end of Italian bread flat side down. He had a grand time and no crumbs!

    For serious toys we have been making good use of feathers and our fishing pole.
