Best Toy Ever
Cricket's Favorite Toy
Hello, Cricket here. I wanted to show you something that I have been playing with since last Fall. I actually went into the closet where Momma had it stored and dragged it out by it's string. I keep it behind the sofa and pull it out whenever I feel like having some fun. What is it?
A paper lantern for Halloween! Momma had it hanging from the front porch last year along with a garland of (fake) leaves. It looked really pretty. After Halloween she took it in and put it away. She, however, underestimated my "See, Want, Take," attitude. I just had to have that lantern! I love toys on strings that I can drag around the house and up onto the top of furniture. I'm like a jungle panther with my prey!
Of course I always get my way and Momma thought I was adorable playing with it. She always says, "Oh, oh, Cricket's getting the party decorations out!" when ever I start dragging my lantern around. It's all mine too! The other kitties do not like it. They like the nip toys when they play. I don't have anything against a good nip mouse on occasion, but the lantern is much more fun and kinda noisy when I drag it around.
Do any of you have an unconventional toy?
Momma spent most of the weekend resting. She gets very hurty if she stands or walks for a length of time. She said grocery shopping was awful!
She mostly just hangs out at home with a heat pack and pain reliever. Oh and good old Benadryl because her allergies are bad this year. Billie's too. And Cody has been hacking up a hairball like, every other day!
The other kitties got their Frontline treatment for fleas, but I did not. I seem to be allergic to flea medicine. My fur comes out where it is applied and I get all spacy and barf. That's okay though. I don't think any flea would dare to hop on me!
We hope you are all having a good September so far. Momma has been negligent in her visiting and will try to catch up this week.
Be Naughty Kitties!
