Wanna know what I think of store-bought cat toys? I say “Pooey!”….yep, through my eleven years here with Mom and Dad, some of my favorite toys have been things I’ve “found” around the house. Christmas time is my favorite with all those ribbons, bows, tissue paper and empty boxes. But I like wads of paper, string, shoelaces, feathers, and two of my MOST favorite things are Daddy’s wooden backscratcher and a plastic straw Mom gave me to play with. Crazy huh? Daddy’s not too crazy about me
stealing borrowing his backscratcher – he keeps it by his chair in the family room and I can reach it when he’s not around and drag it off to the most interesting places!
When I was little, I used to love for Mom or Dad to throw something – usually a ball of paper – way far and I’d run and fetch it and bring it back so they could throw it again. We could do that for a long time before I’d get bored. I know lots of cats fetch just like dogs do……I still do that once in a while – just to let Mom and Dad know I still “get it” !!
Anyway, I have store-bought cat toys people have given me in several toy boxes around the house but I hardly ever play with them anymore. I much prefer a nice warm Mommy-lap-nap to running around getting all sweaty playing with toys. Well……with the exception of that backscratcher and the straw of course……….!
