THANKFUL THURSDAY



Toys aren't a big deal for me, but Mom does turn some into "interesting" things.  She makes all the wall-art for our little apartment, and one day she trimmed the edge off some photo paper, it fell to the floor and "cat's meow", it became one of my absolute favorite play things.  Why that little strip of photo paper is something I can play with for hours!

The other day it was a whole new game when she wound one up inside one of my spring toys, like putting it behind bars in jail!  At first I wasn't quite sure what this was all about ~ it looked really strange laying there on my polka-dot chair, and I was a wee bit cautious about approaching it.

But then ~ of course I did, my paw reached out ~ yes, it was my paper-toy, do you know it took me almost an hour to get it out of that danged spring toy!  But I'm thankful I got it freed from behind bars! Sadly it is lost again. Mom says there's lots of paper-toys under the refrigerator.  I'll be thankful if and when we move sometime and I get them all back.

Now I have to go see what my friends are thankful for today, so I'll hop over to Brian's Home . . .

  2. There is no need to spend a lot of money on cat toys because you kitties love to play with simple things most humans would just be throwing away like paper bags and boxes, scraps of paper, paper balls, etc. Have fun.

  4. Very creative of your mom! It's true that kitties (and human babies) will play with the simplest things, often ignoring any expensive toys. :-)

  8. My kitty, Burton, loved a ball of crumpled foil. He'd bat it around for hours till it ended up under the fridge.

  11. Some of the bestest toys are the ones that don't cost anything and they can entertain you for a long time.

  12. Our favorites are pipe cleaners! Some cat found the package where Mom had it stored with craft stuff and a whole package is scattered throughout the house, we think we will have them all under the refrigerator by Ground Hog Day! BTW, we LOVE your picture of Mark and the cats! Have a marvellously Happy Cat!

  19. We're thankful for our toy box. The Human will pick up the toys we scatter through the house and put them in the bottom of the box. Then she gets them out one day and it's pawty time! It's as good as getting new toys.

  22. My angel kitty cat cousin, Maddie, aka Medusa, aka the Kitten Overlord, loved to play with little everyday things. She especially loved the netting bqgs that onions come in, and bottle caps, and plastic twist ties, and plastic bags. (I wish my kids had been that easy to redirect!)

  23. Mommy says she should get a cat because dogs require toys and cats like discarded things.
