Wow, that thing is big! I was picturing a little toy.


Yeah, it doesn't look at ALL like the one I bought, only to
have the cats ignore. (Maybe I should try again, with a
different one.)

It's great that she likes it! I've stopped buying things for mine.
The scratching post is still ignored, AFAIK it has never been used.
Why would they, since they can scratch all they like on trees
outside? I didn't think about that.
Toys are a waste of time as well. There is one little mousie which
looks very much like a real one that BF will occasionally bat around
and pounce on (I love it when he does this) but on the whole toys
are not us. (For anyone not in UK there is a shop called "Toys R
Us")

KFC never wastes her time on toys. She is now, in her old age, only
interested in her comfort. She likes to sleep by the fire on her
beanbag for as long as possible and then have Boyfie bring her
collared doves to eat ;-)
Which he does and ignores his bop around the ear for doing so.

I have a hard time avoiding cat toys because before 2001 I'd never
been around a cat. I had a small mutt dog who lived 18 years and
just *try* to keep him away from a tennis ball or a squeaky toy!
Sampson was all about toys.

With my lovebird Peaches it's a whole different story. Oooh! Toys!
Oooh! beads! Oooh! a slice of apple! Oooh! a bit of broccoli!
Oooh, some cabbage! Oooh, kale! Doesn't take much to get her
excited.

I loved the Persia pictures. Must be a while since I've looked at
pictures cause I'd forgotten what a pretty round face she has.

Jo


How could someone forget that lovely face? :-)

Better question: how could someone have thrown out that lovely face?

The evil Crack Sac arrived here today. Cali headed for places unknown
as soon as she heard it being unwrapped. Smokey kept her distance
from the evil visitor. But Cleo subdued it right away. Oooh what fun
it is to bop this evil thing, it makes noise. Cleo is a very stoic
kitty. Smokey did show a little interest when we showed her how the
Sac opened up. Smokey has a thing for enclosed spaces. But Cleo
bopped her for showing an interest in her evil Sac.

I also picked up a Treat Ball for Cali, but it was a dud too. I
showed her the ball with the treats, but she said that was a "STOOPID
idea, I can't eat the treats in there. Be a good fellow and get them
out for me!" Cleo did attack the Treat Ball and got a treat for her
trouble, but she didn't associate the treat with her actions. Smokey
detests treats, "they're Kat food after all and I'm not a Kat."


Took Persia a couple of days but she's with Cleo on this one. It must be
subdued! Now try rubbing catnip on it... OMG!

They've all had a turn on sleeping on the evil Sac now. Jealousy is a major
factor here, especially with Smokey. Besides, it didn't eat Cleo, so it must
be safe.

Horrors! I don't think we have any Nip! We feed them the fresh stuff during
the summer, but I don't think there's any dry.

You can freeze it, you know All herbs can be frozen. And you can dry
your own then store it in ziplock bags the freezer, assuming you can keep
the cats away from it long enough to let it dry out.

Rita likes her mousies, but a certain type of mousie gets the royal
treatment. I don't know what is in them, but it looks like some kind
of sticky sawdust, probably with catnip too. She will play with other
mice, but whenever I get out one of these, she goes absolutely crazy.
She'll carry it everywhere with her, and chew on it like chewing gum.
I find bits and pieces of shredded mouse all over the house, including
in my bed. She likes to bring these mousies into the bed to play at
nighttime. The only time it bothers me is when I roll over onto the
mousie bits and she gently claws me to make me roll back over.
If I dole them out fast enough, she can go through 4-5 of these mice
a week.

Someday I should take a series of pictures of 'The Disintegration of
a Mouse'. lol
