Favorite ToysHi, it's Linda. Pumpkin is sleeping right now so I thought I'd tell you about some of the favorite toys that the cats play with. Bebe lost it quite awhile ago, but he used to have a toy that he carried around and talked to. It was once a fake sheepskin mouse but after being repeatedly drowned in the water dish, the eyes, ears and tail fell off, some of the "fur" fell off too and it got very lumpy but he just LOVED that toy. We never found out what happened to it but he used to tuck it away in hiding places and one of those hiding places MIGHT have been the trash can.
When Tiger was younger, he used to play with a sparkly tinsel ball. He also loved to play with mylar crinkle balls and mylar mice. When you'd roll it around in your hand so that it made a crackly sound, he would come running. He still gives them a swat when he walks past one but he no longer chases them around the floor like he used to.
Pumpkin LOVES paper balls. When you crumple one up for him, he'll appear from wherever in the house he was and sit there impatiently waiting for you to toss it to him. He'll bat it around a bit and then take it to another part of the house to play with. We find them all over the house.
Blackie doesn't play with the boys but she'll play with the cat toys when no one's watching. I'd be in the kitchen and see a mousie go flying throught the air in the patio with Blackie chasing after it. I couldn't get a picture of her doing it but they end up all over the place. Once I even found a mousie in one of my shoes!
