Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! I want to tell you about my new favorite game! It’s called “Chasing Lights.” There are a couple of different ways I play it, but my favorite way is when Mom makes rainbow colored lights dance all over the living room. It’s so fun to try to catch them!
Mom says they happen when she makes a little crystal prism that hangs in our window swing. The lights move super super fast, and then they slow down, and then they speed up again. It’s so cool!
Another way I can play the game is when Mom sits in the sunny living room and looks at her phone, and magically, a small clear light dot appears on the ceiling, or on the floor. Sometimes that happens when Mom tries to take a photo of me lounging in the sun, and she always gets mad at me because instead of looking at the camera, I look at the moving dot. Of course, she doesn’t really get mad. It’s actually kind of amusing and a whole different part of the game, because it makes me laugh when she keeps saying “Allegra! Look at Mommy! Look here, Allie!” Doesn’t she know the little dot is so much more fascinating than Mom, who I can look at all the time?
My Aunt Rita plays the light game with me when Mom is away. She takes her glasses off and wiggles them, and all of a sudden, the light dot appears! How cool is that!
The only part about Chasing the Lights that I don’t like is that so far, I haven’t been able to catch those darn lights. But I’m ever hopeful – the day will come when I will catch one, and it will be epic!
Mom says the video below of me chasing those lights was taken in April of 2010, when I had just come to live with Mom. I guess I’ve gotten a little more dignified since then!
Kitties, do you like to chase lights?
