Post 431: lots of fun here today!

The cat brothers Andy and Dougy haven’t had so much fun since the day the box of toys and treats came from a friend in Europe. Based on this recommendation from cody-cat chat, I ordered the NEKO toys for boys, and they’ve bugged any and all humans to bring this toy out for close to non-stop play since it and several attachments arrived a couple of days ago! (It seems like non-stop, anyway. Man, they love this toy!)

Dougy is up to play any time, but Andy can be a bit stubborn. He has his favorites, but I've never seen him attack a toy as enthusiastically and with the same intensity of his brother. Cody knows toys!

This is the current favorite attachment:

The boys are into bugs, believe it! There are several videos of them on YouTube, Facebook, and here showing what the real deal does to entertain them. In time, I hope to make one of them playing with this NEKO toy, too. The intensity of play is beyond my belief.

I am gratified to see Andy, in particular, so entertained. He sometimes seems a bit dour for a playful kitty-type animal. I worry about that. I mean, he’s a cat. Cats should have fun! That’s why I’m here for the boys, that and to feed them treats and yummy cat food and to make them forts out of cardboard boxes and…! You get the idea. Maybe I shouldn’t have named him after a saint: He’s just a little cat, for bugs sake! A kittycat!

Today is an anniversary for GP Cox, fellow blogger of the always informative pacificparatrooper blog, and me. A year ago today, I subbed pacificparatrooper, and I promised GP Cox I’d drink a toast today to that friendship. Since my brother is here, he joined me. So did the cats because, well, cats spent a lot of time today trying to get anyone to play NEKO toy with them. (No scotch, though, for the cats!)

I decided a single malt scotch was in order...

Dougy was obsessing over birds at the feeder across the lane, chirping, pacing, and deciding to leave the scotch to the humans!

    • I started to really put effort into this blog a bit over a year ago, after I decided the thing actually was perfect for telling about my cats and me in retirement. Write what you know about, eh, Maggie! Woof! Thanks for stopping by! Good girl! πŸ™‚ <3

  1. How wonderful for you to drink a toast to your friends anniversary.
    Ali has been hanging from anything she can today chasing a fly.
    She finally got it.
    I breathed a sign of relief and then hubbys care giver cam win and let another one in.
    Here we go again.

    • Your Ali and my boys seem to be on similar career paths…! Andy was bird watching out the dining room window when he took a little time to hunt a spider. (Unsucessfully since the spider was tiny, his paw soft and hairy, and when he tried to mush it, it just said “tee hee!” and scampered off! πŸ™‚ )

      The main thing is the cats are entertained, if at the cost of curtains and screens.
