Sam’s Little Crinkly Toy

Standard

 

There I was…minding my own business…enjoying my fresh tissue paper……

Yes – it was nice and sunny on Saturday – which was a REAL TREAT considering Friday night the sky opened up and we had rain, hail, lightning – the whole works!

Anyway – where was I – oh yes…..Saturday sun streaming into the living room with me sitting atop my fresh pile of tissue courtesy of Mom when DING DONG the doorbell rings.  It’s some guy wanting to know if we want any of our trees trimmed (we get that a lot out here in the “country”).   I go dashing into the basement (my safe spot) and I hear Dad telling the guy “thanks but not today” and I creep back up the basement stairs, peer around the door, and see the coast is clear.   

I head back to the tissue and settle back down……

Then I hear something crinkling……I know it’s not tissue because I’m VERY familiar with the sound of tissue and paper bags, and plastic bags and all those things we kitties know so well….it’s a DIFFERENT crinkle and it’s coming from my Dad’s direction as he’s lounging in his recliner.

I’m so fascinated with the sound I go over to him and put my paws up on his knees to see what it is……….he’s opening a crinkly bag of something and taking a smaller crinkly thing out of the bigger crinkly bag!  He sees I’m VERY interested and want to know what he has!  He lets me sniff one of the small crinklies – it doesn’t have a smell BUT when I press my nose to it – it crinkles!  I give it a poke with my paw and it crinkles again! 

OH JOY – IT’S A BIG CRINKLY BAG FULL OF LITTLE CRINKLY TOYS FOR ME ME ME!

Mom came into the living room right about then and saw me all excited about the crinklies and laughed.  Dad GAVE me a little crinkly and I quick took it in my mouth and went to my tissue pile and burrowed under a piece of tissue with my PRIZE!

 

Me and my little crinklie thing….Mom said it was NOT a kitty toy but what does SHE know?!?!

OK, so I heard her say something I didn’t understand like “Sam’s not supposed to have candy David!” and Dad said “he’s just playing with it” (which I was) and so whatever all that means doesn’t matter because they let me keep my little crinkly!!!!!

I also know where Dad stashed the BIG bag which is full of little crinkly kitty toys….so when I wear this one out (and I will) I can get MORE MORE MORE!

We kitties are so smart………we know a good crinkly when we see (or hear) one!

Happy Sunday!

  1. Sammy! What a cool new toy!! And you have a whole supply of them….???!
    Our humans just don’t understand, do they? Motor Man was astonished the other day when I chased a paper clip all around on the hardwood floor.
    Happy Sunday from your girlkittyfriend!

    • Oohhhhhhhh! Paperclips, ballpoint pens, pencils, all of those things slide around on the floor so nice and smoothly – good for you Sundae. Who needs expensive toys when we can have this much fun with stuff we find around the house?!?! 😀 Yes, the bag of crinklies is in a very “accessible” spot by Dad’s chair so until he eats all of the candy, I will have a chance to BORROW the crinklies any time I want to. YAY.

      Happy Sunny Sunday

  2. That’s very cute, Sammy! A crinkly bag, with crinkly toys, in crinkly tissue paper — what could be better than that? Nothing, that’s what! I hope you have a fun weekend, Sammy.

    • Good Morning Sparta! Happy Sunday…..and it’s a SUNNY one here – hope it is where you are too!! I actually now have TWO little crinklies – I stole another one from by my Dad’s chair during the night when my parents were asleep. Tee Hee That will teach him to leave something around that’s easy for me to get my paws into!

    • Hi Uncle Jerry….yeah, I will have to be mighty careful that Dad doesn’t notice I’ve “found” his candy stash though…I’ll keep that extra crinkly UNDER the tissue so he thinks I just have the one he gave me….sneaky huh?

  3. What a great treat! I once had a kitty that loved the cellophane cigarette packs…back when someone still smoked them in my house! She would dig them out of the trashcans and play with them for hours…and she also loved foam rubber ear plugs – until she batted them in her water dish and they swelled up!
    Enjoy your new toys!
    Hugs, Linda

    • Oh Miss Linda that’s so funny about the ear plugs…..that might be a little bit scary if you watched one of your toys balloon up into something HUGE! However, that reminds me – I do like to hang out in the garage and Dad has some of those ear plugs out there….I may have to see if I can find them!!! We kitties do like stuff that crinkles – no matter WHAT it is that’s for sure……..

  5. Oh Sammy you are just the cutest thing! Was that “crinkly” toy butterscotch flavor? My Mom said that is her favorite flavor of crinkly toy but she said not to tell you that cause she doesn’t want you to eat it!! you are a really good boy cause if something is wrapped in plastic I’m all over it!! You didn’t try to eat it! Good boy!

    • Hi Cody! I’m not sure WHAT flavor the crinkly is – it says “Werther’s” on it whatever THAT means. I’m not really interested in sweet stuff anyway – which is good cuz you’re right – we’re NOT supposed to eat sugar. I do have a confession though – promise you won’t tell??? Mom sometimes has a pomegranate popsicle after dinner while she and Dad are watching TV….I happen to LOVE them….I sit on her legs and while she holds it for me I lick, lick, lick until my tongue gets too cold – I know I shouldn’t but I just can’t HELP MYSELF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Yay for crinkly thingies!

    And you should have a talk with my human mom. Every time someone knocks on the door, I run to my safe spot and then she laughs at me. She says I’m supposed to protect her. So glad to know I’m not the only cat with a safe spot.

    Hrrmmmp, those humans… but she gives me treats and kitty milk and cuddles so I guess I’ll keep her

    • Hi Jay! Concatulations on having TWO poems written about you – now THAT’s way way cool. I don’t think anyone’s ever written one for me….sniff….which is especially sad since my very own Mom is a writer! What’s with that???!!!

      I think we should BOTH keep our humans….they really do treat us well – we’re lucky guys.

    • Hi Guys!!! I’ve been waiting to see your blog with the pictures your Mummy took of you celebrating the Jubilee! It sounded like you were having quite a fun time. I’ve been known to grab the newspaper out of my Dad’s hands when he’s reading it….I always get in trouble for it but it’s FUN and that crinkly noise is great. I haven’t tried eating cardboard – does it taste yummy???????

So glad I was helpful in your learning about FUN ways to spend our time as cats. It’s a great big FUN world out here and you’re able to discover lots of new stuff in your furrrrrrever home!

    • Oh Isobel, our PetSmart HAS that toy! I’ll have to look next time I’m in there – not that Sam needs any more toys (!!) but he does love things that make a noise so perhaps I should spoil my spoiled cat and get it for him. 😀 Kong makes some wonderful toys – he has a “Kong Kicker” that Santa Claus brought him last year.
