birthday toy blahs

The television advertisement showed happy cats slobbering all over the toy. Even old, fat cats spring up and play, the advertisement suggested.

You bought it! Now, weeks later, your cats mostly ignore it – and it runs on three C-cell batteries whether they play with it or it just sits there running, intending to seduce the little furballs!

I flipped the toy’s cover up on one side to expose the “mousie”. That, surely, will bring the boys in. Webcam ready, I turned the toy on: Dougy came at a full gallop! Here we go:

Hunh!? “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”?

Dougy has his priorities, and first priority apparently is paper!

The name of the second song, incidentally is Waunobe March, not Waunebe March, as it appears in the credits.
