Ruby Tuesday

So the human lady and I were discussing my role here in my favorite room. I like to lie around. I like to nap. I like good, long sleeps. But from time to time, I like to play.

You might think I have strong opinions on what mode of play is appropriate for someone of my age and stature, and you’d be right. For example, play does not involve those other cat-like creatures. Play is all about me. Nor does it involve sharing. See previous sentence. In my limited exposure to the tower in that other room, the room I sometimes like, it seemed as though I never got the whole thing to myself, and since for whatever terrible reasoning I’m not the only one living in my favorite room, having a tower in here just Will.Not.Do. I just don’t think I should have to share.

And then, a miracle happened! That lady brought in this scratchy thing. Oh, how I LOVE this! It’s the best of both worlds. I can scratch, play and nap on it. Finally, someone is listening!

And the best part? That other cat who lives in here, Maxx, well, he has no claws. He can’t scratch on it so I guess I won’t be sharing it! I win!

  1. It’s about time you get something just for YOU, Ruby! Tucker doesn’t like to share either. 🙂

  2. Yay! We’re glad you have something awesome just for your own use, Ruby!

  3. Ruby, it sounds as if you have been very deprived. We are so glad you finally have something just for yourself. That looks like a great, long-lasting ess scratcher. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

    ruby…my stars girl, don’t just stop there, tell that food service lady to bring you in a lounge chair, several snack trays that she must keep fully replenished, a gold plated watering fountain and a 360 degree mirror so you can gaze upon your FABulousness like I do…I look at myself in my 360 degree mirror several hundred times a day; I know you will love one

    hugs from dai$y =^..*=

  5. Sounds purrty good to us Ruby. Our Buddy feels much the same, until our remodel that is. He is now chasing flying toys and Da-Bird. He does still retire to Dads bed for his noon constitutional.

  6. Ruby, you have it made!!! How great that your human got you your very own scratchy, sleepy, play thing! What’s your secret? We need a few things from our human but she doesn’t seem to be listening. Purrs……….

  7. Nice one Ruby it is all yours. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. Ruby, esse brinquedo é perfeito para você. Bem eu acho que depois de ouvir essa risada nenhum outro gato vai atrever a chegar perto do seu Ess heheheh.

  9. Ruby I have a scratchy Ess too and I love it. Mine also has a fevver hanging from underneath. I give it a swat every time I pass by

  16. I think we should never share our toys, except those of others!

    I wanted to thank you for your birthday wishes for my purrthday, on Texas’ blog. I know I am terribly terribly late, and I apologize and so I send you plenty of purrs and some silky fur of mine!

  17. OMC, you didn’t have an ess? We’re so glad you have one now. They’re the best!
