Presents!

So Leo had this birthday a few days ago.. earlier this week.. If you missed it, go back to Monday's post. If you were there and still don't remember, you had too much nip brandy, Valerian root beer or silvervine tea... And dude/dudette... those that do remember, might be laughing at what you sang on the karaoke stage! MOL!
 
Anyway.... The reason I mention it is because he actually got some presents! We waited until we went to bed so he would feel free to play without looking over his shoulder for Star and a sneak attack.
 
He got a feathery ball that's supposed to stand up straight when it's on a hard floor.. not so much on a bed.. and a compressed catnip ball. I'll show you his reaction to the ball another day. Today, the feather ball.
 
Leo, as you know, is fevver boy! In fact, he grabbed the feathers in his giant paw and flipped it up into the air and off the bed twice before I was able to remove it from it's package!
 
Fevvers!!! Muh favorite!!
 
 
 
Then he tossed it around on the bed after it was out of the package. Note the intense look on his face!
Mine! I'll get it I'll get it!!!!!
 
 

*chomp bite tug pull* Hey! The fevvers won't pull out!
 
 

After he'd played with it for a while, I noticed a little plastic bit on it, so I took it away to remove it. And discovered that it said, "remove before play" Uh... duh, would have if I'd seen it. Guess I should have read the package! Because this thing SINGS! Every time it gets batted, it makes some bird song!
Say what? Where's that birdie noise coming from? Must kill!!


It is seriously adorable, and I will get some video of it to share soon!

One drawback to the singing toy... It's still in the bed. Every time one of us rolls over, it sings! Ever wake up to birdsong right in your own bed??? That'll make ya jump straight up, lemme tell ya! And even when you get used to it, it still wakes you up! Yeesh.. the things we put up with for our kitties...


Speaking of presents!!

You can still get your very own, extra special Winnie's Wish Cat Toy Set!
All you have to do is make a minimum donation of $15 dollars (in the USA) to Winnie's Wish using the button on my sidebar, send me an email at anniclan AT aol DOT com with your address and they will be on their way to you lickity split! Trust me, you're kitties will love them AND you'll be helping the kitties of Winnie's Wish who really really need the help.
And don't forget, they need homes, so if you need a kitty... or know someone who does... please please look them over! Distance is no object! Please go to the Daily Dose page and look at them on the side bar (or scroll down and see their pet finder page after my posts!)

I love "fevvers" but Mom doesn't always let me play with them because I try to EAT them, but then again, I try to eat EVERYTHING!
Love, Cody

Those toys that sing when batted are fun. It's also fun to watch #1 jump out of her skin when she is walking around her bedroom in a blur first thing in the morning and accidentally bats one...

Purrs,

Whoa, Leo! A fevver ball that SINGS? Seriously??? That is a really great present! And that compressed catnip ball ... we bet you're going to love that. It used to be our Angel Maggie's most favorite thing.

We'll try to place our our FUNdraiser order this weekend.

Hugs!

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

That sounds like an awesone toy - a ball that sings...hmm - Mommie, you need to go to the pet store!

Leo looks so adorable in his "intense" play-picture! He's a sweet boy!

Alas, no Star today. Sigh.

Looks like Leo ad great gifts! This singing toy must be a bit unnerving though (where's the bird? Where's the bird??). Oh well, could be fun ;-)
