Post 1577: “Tear strips are toys, aren’t they?”

Dougy is very excited now! RAWR! The tear strip off the dry kitty food bag instantly brings out the kitty in him!


Andy suspects it’s play time for him, too. (Check out his “horns”!)

But it’s Dougy’s time first! Who knew a Persian kitty could get his kitty on to this degree? Whew! Better watch my fingers!


Andy knows the medicine bottle is where I keep the tear strip because both kitty boys want to chew on it. In the meantime, he gets ready for his turn at play! Woo hoo!

Get it on, kitty! Who knew the tear strip would become the kitty boys’ favorite toy?


Game’s over and the kitty boys settle down. (Notice how they resolve the issue of Andy being too close to Dougy’s ottoman? That’s right: they are back to back! Out of sight, out of mind!)

  1. Oh tear strips are super fun, aren’t they?! They look like snakeys that got flattened. Tee hee hee! I like the plastic ones best, but Mom takes them away when she sees me starting to chew on them. Mew Mew!

    • Exactly the same here, Valentine. I’ve had to pull plastic out of Andy’s mouth when he was trying to swallow it. That was my first clue I needed to hide it in a kitty-proof place till I could sent it to the trash!

    • Same here, Jean! My big concern is they chew and potentially swallow plastic if unsupervised. The old pill bottle serves a childproof (and kitty boy proof!) solution to that problem so long as the kitty boys don’t grow opposable thumbs! I hide all attractive plastic (bags, packaging, small parts, etc.) in the bin of my paper shredder as soon as possible, too. They can’t pull it out from under the shredder or tip it over, so it remains the single best deterrent to emergency surgery and a big veterinarian’s bill. That said, the tear stip continues to be the single most es=xciting=
