Tweet Week - FatBerd

::Music Implied::

Fatberd singing in the dead of night
Take these felted wings and learn to fly
All my life, been waiting for my Fatberd to arrive

Here was some of my inspiration for Tweet Week. My Fatberd from my friends at Casbah Kitten. I had my eye on one of these little fellas for awhile, so imagine my surprise when he flew into my life the other day...

Dad went to the mailbox and returned while Mom was... indisposed. He yelled out that a package had arrived for ME. I was so surprised, first a paw it forward and now this!

"It's a surprise for Toontzy. It's gonna be for Tweet Week." Mom yelled from her perch.

"Meow! Open it Dad! Do It!"

"I'm gonna open it!" Dad yelled to Mom.

"No! Not yet, I wanna take photos!" Mom yelled which only I heard, and naturally choose to ignore.

"Do it Dad!" I mewed loudly as Dad got busy cutting into the package. I held my breath as I waited to see if my birdy dreams had come true. I made sure that I continued my loud meows, to cover Mom's continued yells to leave it alone.

"Oh this is really cute! It's this blue bird." Dad yelled out to her.

"No! I said don't open it! Don't give it to her yet!"


"Oh she loves it! She's rubbin it all over her face.... Now she's kickin it's a-"

"No!" Mom said as she came into the kitchen, just in time to see me finish some darling bunny-kicking business. "Shoot! Did you not hear me when I said not to open or give it to her?"

"What? No. I thought you said TO open it."


  1. Lucky you! That birdie looks pawsome.

  2. Haha! Fin, your dad is like ours...he never "hears" mom right!!

    We love your fatberd!!

    We'll be doing a tweet post this week...

  3. That is the coolest bird ever. Perfect for Tweet Week!

  4. That's a dadda for you, they never listen to the mommas! We are thinking that your bird is one of the coolest birds we've seen in a long and long time.

  5. What a spectacular berd!! The PM makes things out of wool felt but I never got a FatBerd. Not even a SkinnyBerd. I am going to have to speak with her on what she has been doing with her free time. This is ludicrous. Enjoy your bird. Is it drug filled?

  6. I like to trick my dad like that too :)

  7. Whoa. Great berd!!!! Bunny kick it for all of us.

  8. Finny, you so deserve a Fatberd. We hope to see more pictures!

  9. That looks like fun! You should have waited for the camera, though.

  10. Well, we would have liked to see the Opening Ceremony photos, but we understand that you have to do what you have to do. :grin:

    Looks like fun! (What's that, Mommy? WE HAVE A FATBERD THAT YOU HAVEN'T GIVEN TO US YET??!! Oh my cat, have you got some 'splainin' to do!!)

    Purrs and hugs,
    The Kitty Krew

    (PS from The Mommy -- hey, they got the jelly beans, and some other toys the same weekend, I'm just trying not to overwhelm them all at one time...)

  11. Our fat penguin from the Casbah Kittens is divine...the nip is so potent. We're glad you got your berd!

  12. Priceless! I will never hear "Black Bird" the same way again! ~Co9T

  13. Hahaha! That looks like such a fun bird!

  14. That looks like a Cool Blue Bird ..

  15. Oooh! That fatberd looks cool Fin! What is Tweet Week about? Could you ask your Mummy to message out Mummy please? Xanthe and Nishiko xxx

  16. That fatberd looks wonderful, so um fat and definitely kickable.

  17. We have got a tweet for you in our post today (Tuesday)

  18. Awww! Fatberd is adorable! No wonder Fin couldn't resist her. I love the way you adapted the song to fit Fatberd, too! Pure genius!

  19. That is a great fatbird. I can see why you like it so much!
