I am always thankful when I find new and interesting toys to play with.
On this day I found three.  And they are inter-active!

June would never, and is never allowed to play with these
under normal circumstances.  When blinds are opened, the pulls are
always tucked way up high, out of reach.  It was allowed this one morning,
under supervision while I watched and took photographs, just as they were being opened, and allowed because she was having fun!

We'll share our new toy for
Thankful Thursday at



  1. oooh you found something super interesting...

  2. Ha! That's a great toy from a kitty's perspective, June. We're not sure about the human perspective. :-D

  3. We think those springs make better toys!!!

  4. this looks adorable but here is the thing. I read and article about cats and blind strings and it said they are dangersous, at first i thought hanging themselves, but they said they can swallow one of the things on the end and it gets hung and can't be pulled out... google how to cat proof blinds. i see danger everywhere and store these things in my mind until someone jogs it lose

    1. Thanks Sandra ... I've added a "PS" above, these photos were somewhat of a set-up, allowing her to play only
      for a few moments, under supervision while I took the pictures. Usually when I open the blinds, early morning (or even other times) the cords are tucked in way up high, out of reach.
      Safety first for our pets, and little bipeds too!

  5. Wow, a whole new world of fun has opened up for you June! Have fun cutie pie!

  6. Junie, our Celestial Chuck chewed through so many of the blind cords, that we had to make special places to tie them up so he couldn't chew any more of them!
    He also chewed through my camisole strap, and the tie for several pj bottoms.

  7. No doubt you were right there supervising her. We always have to be careful what they play with. I so remember.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to June. ♥

  8. Hee! Hee! We had those in the blinds in the bay window. We pull out the strings and make them into a tangled mess! Mom has been thinking about taking the blinds down.

  9. That shows who really pulls the strings at your house.

  10. We're glad your mom was watching you playing with those cords. The blinds might have come crashing down on you.

    Oh, and the new cherry blossom header looks real pretty!

  11. Those do look like fun toys but in the end, moms do know best about the toys that are acceptable and the ones that are not.

  12. Those are super fun! Ours get hidden away usually too. You're real lucky your mom let you play for a while. Enjoy!

  13. That looks like fun sweet June. Our strings are tucked away up high too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  14. Yes we found out about this kitty toy the hard way. All of a sudden the cords were on the floor chewed through. Yes, June Mom can Snoopervise too

  15. Your Mama is taking care to let you have some fun but stay safe too !

  16. That looks like fun, June. I am glad the cords are normally hidden away.

  17. Juney you are hilarious: they are inter-active. That tickled my funny bone
    Hugs cecilia

  18. June, we know you had some good supervise fun. All those cords here are so tempting, but like the ZH, Mom has them all tucked away where we can't get at them. Always fun finding new toys:)

  19. It's hard to deny them something when they're having fun!

  20. You are a lucky girl. XO

  21. Such a fun toy at least once!
