Viola says: I have lots of toys. Technically, the toys belong to everyone but not everyone plays with them. It’s not like there’s dried spit on every single toy. Lots of the toys in this Trap-a-Cat box hardly have anyone else’s smell on them, other than mine!

Let’s see, there’s an IKEA rat here – he’s buddies with big brother Maxx’s Busy Bee, a couple of kick sticks, two crinkle balls, a swirly ring, a catnip pillow, a leather mouse, a braided felt pull, and a milk jug ring.

Of all my the toys, I think I might like this Neko Fly the best. It’s seen better days, my dad says, because the fur is almost gone. My mama Zuzu likes to chew on it a lot. I don’t mind my mama’s spit ‘cuz she’s my real mama.

She’s showing me her best left-handed whappy paw here and I’m trying to mirror her moves. She’s good!

But of all the toys here, and there are lots, sometimes the best toys are the simplest ones. I LOVE feathers the best! Luckily for me, there’s usually one or two of these things lying around outside. A quick wash and dry and I’m free to play to my heart’s content.

Or until I bat it under the refrigerator. Gee, there must be enough feathers under there by now to make up a whole bird! And when that toy comes out to play, I’ll be all over it!

  1. You’ve got a great box full of toys to play with Viola – tell us you haven’t put your spit on them all.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. Hey, if no one is playing with the toys, they must be “yours”!

  3. That’s a lot of toys to choose from! Derry will agree that feathers are the best, though. 🙂

  4. you like feathers? You need to stop over to our blog today…you could win one! (wink)

  5. We agree quite a selection you have there. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Angel and Chuck really like the Neko Fly too! Chuck chases it along the floor (and up in the air!), while Angel lays in her box and swats at it. Angel has had Chuck jump on her head too many times for her to get on the floor with him again!

  7. Viola, Annabelle’s favorite is her Neko fly too!

  8. Our favorite, and the cats at PAWS’ favorite is the Go Cat Teaser wand toy- it has a little bushy mouse on the end that everyone loves.
    Cute pictures!
    xxoo

  9. Viola, Mom says our favorite thing to do is to pull out lots of toys out of our basket and put them by her bedroom door. We sure think that’s fun!

  10. We love the Neko fly too…but, you’re right, Viola, a simple feather is so much fun! Whenever the mom sees one outside from when one of the birdie’s loses one, she brings it in for us and we have so much fun with it.

  12. You got bunches of fun toys but you really could use some more!

  13. One can never have too many toys. I want to get a Quint original someday.

  14. Your Christmas e Cards are both lovely. I have been hearing a lot of positive things about Neko toys lately. I don’t have one. Maybe Santa will bring me one.

    A little spit never hurt a kitty. See? Everyone else wants a Quint original TOO!

  16. what a treasure box of toys. we used to have lots of toys but we got tired of playing with them so after a long time of them not seeing action, our humans took them to the garage after washing them.

  20. We LOVE our Neko fly! The only problem is that both Binga and I chew on the string a lot, which pretty much kills it. The lure (in our case, the Kattipede) is still in good shape!

  21. That’s a lot of toys ! Hard to chose with which one you’re going to play each day ! Purrs

  22. Under the refrigerator is like the graveyard of lost toys. How do you get your humans to move the fridge so you can get yours back?

  23. You do have lots of toys. I like feathers too.

  24. Looks like ya got some pawsome toys!

  25. ooooh, we love feathers too! Mommy bought us a bunch of pheasant tail feather on eBay. They rock!

  26. Great collection of toys you’ve got there, Viola! I like feathers too. Happy holidays.

  27. Viola, feathers under the refrigerator? What if it flies away???

  28. So many toys! They all look like lots of fun. Sampson likes feathers best too. He goes nuts over them!

  29. Faraday: I dunno…..are there ever REALLY enough WAND Toys????
