Bats Have Many Uses

Remember this thing? Oliver's plastic bat?

Well, the ball still hasn't been untethered from it's packaging.

And he still likes to push the ball-end around the house like a vacuum cleaner.

And he still hasn't figured out how to actually swing it as it should be swung (and for this I am grateful), but yesterday he did find a new use for it.

Aparently it functions well as a herding stick. That is, if you are a Cat Shepherd. Oliver was using the bat (his is red) to wrangle Junior (our cat) out of the living room and down the hall with the utmost care. And Junior was complying willingly. Do you think it would be cruel if I dressed him as Bo Peep and let him carry his "herding stick"? So cute!
