Toy Rub Out

We've been working hard at our Summer FUNdraiser, sewing, stuffing and nipping to toys. The nip may have caused some issues around here.. It's a good, strong, potent nip! (just ask anyone who's kitties ripped open the package when their previous fundraiser toys arrived!) And when I open the tub to stuff, Star and Leo coming running from all corners of the house! Even if there are *gasp* people here!

Of course they get some nip. Even if I could be so hard hearted as to deny them, their demands, meows, claws, and general making a nuisance of themselves would quickly change my mind! But I'm not hard hearted, and they get pinches of nip every time the tub opens.

But sometimes that's just not good enough.. AFTER Star had her fill of sprinkled nip, replenished at least twice I might add, she got up close and personal with the work table. I had a bunch of the finished toys tied in a bag close to the edge and.. Well, see for yourselves.

Ohhhh this is chin-rubbing wonderful..... purrrrrrrrrr
 
 

I'm not on the table.. see, no feet! Oh this smells so good...
 
 

Oh how can you be so cruel.. to make these yummy smelling things and then send them away? Shouldn't they ALL be mine?



I had to put them in a different bag, this one was all wet for some reason...


When Star is in her right (read non-nip enhanced..) mind, she knows that these toys are for a good cause and that it's good to share with all of her friends! So with her paw stamp of approval, these wonderful smelling toys are ready to go to YOUR house when you donate to the Winnie's Wish rescue!

A wonderful set of kitty approved toys can be yours for just a minimum donation of $15! Details on the Summer FUNdraiser page!
Please read it and consider helping us help the kitties of Winnie's Wish!

Oh, and we're expecting a package of silvervine soon, so you have your choice of this yummy nip or silvervine in your toys! Or plain for kitties who like neither!

Allie: oooh Star! Of course we wouldn't EVER hold ANYthing against you when a girlcat's under the Influence. (Nip can make me drool too!)

Does Star have a problem that she can't hold her nip?? Oh dear. Time for a Silvervine intervention.

SOME kitty here (named, uh, Binga) found my human's nip knot stash! Luckily, they are sealed up VERY well and she didn't ruin them - they are meant for rescue kitties.

We don't blame you for not being able to resist. Was there drool on that plastic bag?

That nip is hard to resist!

I think Star rubbing on them makes them that much better!!!!
Cody threw up this morning, I was fairly certain last night I gave him too much coconut oil (I knew it when I did it, bad Mama), throwing up is one side effect for cats if they are given too much...he threw up liquid :( But....ate ALL of his breakfast!

Last time our mom was making nip toys, Lisbeth crawled right in the bin and went to sleep. There are photos in the post about it. We have good nip too 'cause mom grows it on our upper deck. When she sews the filled pouches closed, she just leaves them all attached to each other until she's finished. That's our favorite time 'cause if we can get our teeth into one of those and break the thread we can get our paws on several toys at one time. Nip heaven! Good luck with the fundraiser. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May Giulietta, Fiona, Lisbeth, Astrid and Calista Jo
