Toy Tuesday

Whew, just made it in on Tuesday!


Meet Ratty!

Ratty is one of my favorite toys. Unlike Angel Fin, I carry my Ratty around proudly. It makes my parents smile.

When Mom first brought Ratty home he was bigger than I was. So carrying him around wasn't easy, but I managed. I tried to drag him by the tail, but then I'd have to try to straddle him while I walked. By the neck was better. I'd walk a bit, put him down, get a better grip on his neck, and carry on. I would even scale the cat scratcher, or Mom's office chair with him in my jaws. He is much easier to carry now.
 

I sometimes carry him into bed now. Ratty and I enjoy a good round of wrestle-mania in bed during the wee hours of the morning. I like to pin him against Mom's back.

  3. Mom thinks it is so nice when a kitty gets so much fun out of a toy. You and Katie Isabella seem to come from a similar mold.

  4. We bet ratty will be your buddy for a long time. Truffle is still carrying around one of her toys and brings it to bed with Mom Paula at night.

  7. We like to drag and otherwise 'steriously move around anything we can wrap our claws or jaws around. We have a very liberal view of what constitutes our play-prey and our toys. Your Ratty does look quite delicious--er, interesting. Our only big toys are some Kickaroos we inherited from Saint Shadow (she is like your Angel Finny). Now our mom is thinking we should maybe have some big toys of our own, worthy of our mighty paws of doom and our fiercesomeness.
    Would Meg tell the cat moms more about Ratty, please?

    Dictated by Alphie and Binky to our loving mom, CatReader.

  11. Oh Quill, that is terrific that you have your very own buddy in Ratty. He does look pretty darn big to carry around everywhere. I bet that was a sight.Pretty soon you will be able to carry an elephant around since you are getting so big. Take care.

  13. I am so glad you wrote this post. Wart got a birthday coupon from PetSmart and I had a heck of a time finding the right toy. I kept looking at a giant rat in cat toy area and thought what cat would haul that around? Now I know! I will go back and get him his own big rat. Thanks - Jobi
