Friday Fun with Sheba!


We love seeing the transformational effects of patience and love on kitties having a hard time adjusting to life at the shelter. We recently posted about sweet Sheba, who has become a totally different kitty than the one who used to shun attention by facing the back corner of her cage.  Sheba now seeks out pets and affection whenever her favorite humans visit.  And we just discovered she LOVES interactive video games.  Check out this clip of her playing "Crazy Cat," on our Kindle Fire!

  

Sheba's high score is 851,300.  She's hoping to beat it this weekend.


Wishing you a weekend that's as fun as Sheba's! :)

How fun! I hope whoever adopts Sheba has a tablet full of kitty games!

I think we would have to worry about Humphrey having a Kindle. It would never be the same.

This is such a great way to stave of boredom! Maybe Kindle or iPad could donate a bunch to shelters?

Old Kitty said...

Sheba is the LAZIEST PLAYER EVER!!! She only goes for the target when it comes close enough to her nice soft pink beddie that she doesn't have to move a muscle (well, except in her paw!) to catch it! Ha ha ha ha ha! And my Human says *I'm* a Lazy Player.

I.Think.Not.

Aw she's so cute! I think it's cool that they have scores for the kitty players too.

Cats Herd You said...

That's so cute! And a great tip to her future forever family as a toy she'll really enjoy in their home, too!

Marg said...

Hi there Sheba, we are so glad to see you playing that fun game. Good for you. Hope you find that special home really soon. Take care.

That does look like a super fun game to play. We hope everyone there had a fab weekend.

Sheba smacks hard! Love the first picture of her with both paws on the screen. :)

Katie Isabella said...

Oh Sheba, you sure are a day brightener here to me and mommy. XXXOOO <3

Katie Isabella said...

I love the sound we could hear too of that mighty paw smacking that mousie. Mom has a mousie on her iPad. I need to ask her to bring him out for me again.

The Island Cats said...

Sheba! Look how much fun you're having. We gotta get our paws on the mom's ipad.

The Whiskeratti said...

You go girl! Keep us posted on your new scores.

It is so great to see Sheba is doing so well! What a fun she is having with the game :-) My boys are not very interested in video games. I hope they are, then they can compete with Sheba!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend xoxo

That's so cute! My cats are always trying to get underneath my ipad to see where the critters went.

Nice to see that you continue to add to your bag of tricks, Kevin and Tracey!

Gigi said...

Aw, now we feel bad! (No, okay, truthfully *I* do not feel bad at all because you know, it's against my feline NATURE to feel bad.)But the Human says she was just teasin' Sheba about being a Lazy Player--she says there are kitties (she even says *I* am one, but I beg to differ) who like to play but wait for the toy to come to *them* instead of expending the energy to chase it--you know how we kitties like to conserve our energies.

But for now, we'll give Miss Sheba the benefit of the doubt and tell her "Good Girl" for starting to play. XOXO

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oh, what fun. And more interesting than staring at the wall. :)

Katnip Lounge said...

We gotta get Mommy (OUR Sheebie) to download that game!

How wonderful to see Sheba blossoming.

Sheba's starting to look more happier.

Sheba.

Kitties Blue said...

Sheba is really good at that, especially as she uses both paws. Calista will play those games a little bit, but most of us just watch the mouse or whatever other image it is, scurrying across the screen. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Mickey's Musings said...

What a sweet kitty!!!
She is fast too, so she will most likely beat her high score ;) heehee

Julia Williams said...

So glad she is starting to enjoy life and having fun! That looks like a cool game for cats.

That was fun! And Sheba is such a cutie. Hugs to all of you.

Unknown said...

Hahaha! So adorable! Sheba is one true technological kitty!

I can't wait to hear the results of The Petties ceremony in September. My fingers are crossed for you all! hugs

Deb Barnes said...

Oh my!! What a darling girl she is - hope she beats her score this weekend! Purrs from the Zee and Zoey gang

Sandee said...

Well, that video is adorable and then some. Too cute and a great big Awww too.

Hey, I need to get my paws on daddy's iPad

Josie Two Shoes said...

Love it, love it! I'm so happy to read that Sheba is warming up to love and interaction. I suspect she might be more adept at working her tablet than I am at mine! :-)

Andrea @ From The Sol said...

I admire your work at the shelter and know that Sheba does too. She is beautiful and will make some techy a wonderful pet. I have a "Cat Movie" that I put on the TV ... it has bugs walking and flying across the screen ... my cats are all mesmorized by it. Might be a fun thing to try for Sheba and other kitties who need help coming out of their shell ...

As I suspected, even a cat is better on a tablet than I am. Never mind. Hope she finds a lovely home anyway.

Unknown said...

Kisses

Clooney said...

It warms our hearts to hear that she is allowing some love in. What a cutie she is playing that game. Sheba we will purr for a very special forever home to come forward for you.

Cat said...

What a lovely girl!!!

LOL. Sheba, you'd make a great gaming adviser for the makers of Fruit Ninja.
