This week, Charlene Butterbean has been wearing a little video camera around her collar for Friskies cat food. She's part of a group of 25 cat "repurrtors" from across the country who are collecting data to be later analyzed by a cat psychology expert.
As I was sifting through yesterday's footage, I found this little gem. In this movie, Charlene is walking along and discovers one of her beloved sparkle balls on the floor. She pauses and plays with it, picks it up and walks over to the bed and batts it around again. You can hear her squeal in glee (it's a little distorted because the mic is right against her neck) as she plays with the ball. In the end, in all her excitement, she knocks the camera off her collar and all goes black.
I know it's not the greatest cinematography in the world, but I enjoyed watching it. We always find the sparkle balls all over the house. She'll leave them on our pillows, next to her food bowl, on the steps,, but never really see her play with them on her own. I'm glad she was able to catch herself on camera.
