Toy Tuesday

I thought I'd give a little shout out to a special toy.
Do you see it there in the background? 
I know it's hard to focus with the darling grannycat in the foreground.

This is an exact replica of the toy Mom and I first played with at the shelter when she first found me. She had been searching for such a long time to find me, and when she walked into the shelter she saw me (darling little fluff ball with sass) and was immediately in love. Dad had told her no long hairs and so she tried to resist me, but let's face it who can resist me?

Mom noticed the swing toy and was trying to lure out all the kittens with it. I knew Mom was meant to be mine (she smelled like home to me - and she too is a long hair) and I was not gonna let her go. I jumped and leaped with such grace and enthusiasm that Mom could no longer resist me. 

When I was settled into my home Mom found the same swing toy and bought it for me. It's still my favorite toy (Mousey is not a toy of course). One swing and I turn from mature grannycat to small kitten. It makes my parents so happy and it makes me happy too.

So friends, what brings out your inner kitten?

Well, truthfully, Fin, I just take wild runs friskin through the house at certain times. No toys involved.

HI Fin,
My favorite toy is an old leather shoelace - my mom tied a piece of ribbon to the end and it 'flies'
when she moves it. It's the best!

I thought for one moment you said "darling little fluff ball with ass"! But my human is adjusting to new glasses!!!

You are gorgeous, as you know, Fin x

For me it is the laser thingy every time. It's like an addiction >^,,^<

Have you ever tried 'Da Bird'?? It's all 3 of our favorites and my humom has recommended it to several other humoms for their owners. Try it!! (No, we don't get a commission for them or anything, we just love them!) Fuzzy hugs, Lilly, Patsy and Smudge

Marg said...

We love Da Bird but all toys are our favorites. We have a tiny little mouse connected to a wand that we love too. But we also like to rip through the house. We are so glad that you picked out your Mom to take you home. Good job Fin. Take care Fin. Did you get all the ornaments off the tree or is it not up yet??

Tissue paper and boxes does it for me sweet one!

In our house, string reigns supreme as the summoner of inner kittens! :)

Kitcaboodles said...

With Sookie it's her cat tunnel, she loves to hide in it, dart through it and roll it about! For Mr Darcy, anything that looks like string is guaranteed to turn him back to kitten immediately :)

mousie brings out my "inner kitten" I know he isn't a "toy" but to me he represents young love, my first love, well my first love of course not counting mama.

The Island Cats said...

Amazing, isn't it -- no matter how short a time they stay with us, they win our hearts. We can't help it. We're hardwired for love, to give and receive, no matter if it breaks our hearts a little every time. I enjoyed the post, you have a nice blog.

My favorite toy is my tube. I picked my Mom too, at the shelter. I just got up and greeted her. And she wanted me right away.
