Dear Mom & Dad

Dear Mom and Dad,

I think it's time we had a talk about a disturbing trend here at Casa De Housecat. I've let it go for a while, but I feel it's gone too far now.

I have noticed that sometimes, in the middle of the night, I hear... certain noises. At first I wasn't even sure what I was hearing, as you two tried to be stealth-like, but then I realized I could no longer ignore the facts.

I know you play with my toys at night.

I know you think I'm asleep, and I won't hear you, but I can hear the tinkle bell of The Ball from anywhere in the house. I was afraid it was attacking you, and I gave it a hardy whap back into it's living room lair to protect you (the irony!). Now, I think it might have been your doing all along. Still I was willing to let it all go. Live and let play, I said.

Till I heard the soft tinkle of my Beloved, My Mousey.

Oh and your yelling out things like "Mother Fuff! Fin! Stop your leaving your Hoover Dam toys in the middle of the doorway!" does nothing to hide the truth of the matter. I think we can all agree that this is unacceptable.

  2. What? What? You are suspicious? Join the club. While we all know that archaeologists are spies until proven otherwise but I am only an archaeologist's CAT. Why should I be under suspicion???

  4. Mummy has to confiscate our toys in the middle of the night if Cosmo gets too frisky. I suspect she whaps them round herself.

  5. Mom sometimes sleeps with our toys. I'm sure the fact that my momma Ellie drops them on mom in the middle of the night has nothing whatsoever to do with it.

    What's up with Google...how could they suspect you of being anything but floofy?

  10. We agree Finny - absolutely unacceptable! You know, sometimes we hear the same thing here... the turbo scratcher mysteriously goes off in the middle of the night... As if, right??

  16. My Mom throws my mousies in a pile ... I just wait til she somewhere else ... by the end of the day I have most of them back where they belong.

    She usually steps on one or two. Esp the ones I put on the stairs ... she can't see those til it's too late.

  21. Fin, when you mentioned sounds from the parents room I blushed at first. Then I understood what it was really about. Pheeeew. Scary.

  22. We understand your reluctance to air your human's dirty little secrets in public, Fin, but you had no choice. You had to protect your toys!

  23. We agree with daisy! Make them get their own toys.

    We got that suspicious thing awhile back. It went away as mysteriously as it came.

  26. Hi Fin, yes your tock shot from earlier this month will be counted as part of the charity total.

  27. Fin we have that same suspicious problem sometimes - it is not you, Google is just tempermental. And Annoying.

    Oh, and I admit it - there are cat toys that are fun. I have been known to juggle the jingly balls sometimes. Some toys are just too tempting.
