I'm Afraid It's Frayed

You might have noticed.. We've gone Orange for April!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


You all know Leo's stringy? He sleeps with it, he loves it, he has chewed it almost to bits. It came off of someone's hoodie, niece 1's I think. Star loves it too, and stole it once. But it's Leo's. As it's been chewed to bits, I've tied knots in it to hold it together. But it's gotten pretty bad. It gets full of fur too so it's quite disgusting.

I've been looking to replace it for a while, but no one wants to sacrifice their hoodie for poor Leo. What's the next best thing? Corded hoodie type string at the fabric store! Lucky, (I think) for us, our Joann Fabrics is moving and everything is on sale. Of course, there's not much good left now that it's down to 75% off... But they did have red and blue hoodie string!

Leo's old stringy is blue, so we got him red! And since it was on a good sale, we got four yards, meaning we have four new stringies! He can chew to his hearts content, there's another one waiting in the wings! And another and another!

What do you mean 'stringy is ratty'?? It's perfect!



OH! What is this!



Ok, NOT ratty, I get it now! Wow!



Hey! What you doin' with my old stringy??



I gotta chew on this one for a while.... nom nom nom



Argh! It's gettin' away!



I got you now, new stringy!


 Daddy played with him with the stringy for a while, and he loved it! Went wild! I said, great, he wont miss the old one! But Greg said why would he miss it? Because we're getting rid of that ratty old thing!
Oh no, Greg said, he can have both.. After all, he loves his old stringy! Argh!

zzzz ...I sleeps wif both of them.. Star no get... zzzz


Whisper: oh yes she can. I'll show those pictures another day!

Have fun with your new stringy! Remember, you can chew it, just don't swallow it! :)

Sparkle said...

I'm glad you got to keep BOTH of them!

That made me smile and mommy too. We love that you got Leo some more string and some spare too. I wonder if I would like some string like that? xoxox

Cat said...

YAY, new stringys forever!!! We've gone orange too :-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

That looks a great new string but we know how you feel about the old one cos you've spent ages giving it the distressed look!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Leo , you should take the new string and give Star the old ratty one!

Cathy Keisha said...

I would have guessed a shoe lace would make a good replacement. I play with a shoe lace but TW will only let me play supervised. She's afraid I'll hang myself or something.

Lucky Leo! And poor, frustrated Mom!

Brian said...

YAY! Teo strings are better than one!

William said...

Hmmm, never tried one of those. My preference is shoelaces--especially the little plastic bits on the ends. I have to sneak play with those, though (if my mom leaves her sneakers unattended), so maybe I could try this...

LP said...

Wow Leo! You get a cupboard full of strings! How cool is that?! And you even get to keep the old one...your Mama is too good to you :)

We are so glad you were able to find him more hoodie string!

Oui Oui is like that too! She has her first toy still. Its her Lovey and its so battered you can hardly tell what once was, but she loves it. And all the hard work to get it to look like that!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

It's SUCH a relief to know you have an adequate stash of strings. It's always SO worrisome to ponder a shortage of one's preferred toys. And even though you have a lot? I don't think you should share any with that Sisfur of yours. Uh-uh. Strings is Boyz Toyz.

String is important! If your mom doesn't have enough string, there's always shoelaces. Humans are so literal that they forget to be creative when you need a toy.

That is a lovely new string. Of course the ratty old one must be favourite because it took a long time to get it just right.
