Just In Time For Summer! (IF It Ever Arrives..)

First off, I want to apologize for the quality of the pictures.. I know mine aren't anything to write home about on a normal day, but today's have their own special issues. It was dark-ish in the house but the door was open and a bright shaft of sunlight streaming in. Half the time the flash went off, half the time it didn't. I had to brighten the ones that didn't have flash so you can see what's going on.

On to the story!

We have seen something that many of you kitties have that you seem to all love. We have longed for one of our own.

And finally, we got one! Ok, that's not quite right.. We got Two!

What are they??

Ham-micks from 40 Paws!

Star braved a room full of people to test out the first one we put together! My sister, Twin 1 (the loud one), and her fiance where all here and Star didn't care, she had to see what this new thing was!
(It might have helped that they are packed with catnip in the box!)

What is this!? Nip!

Oooo and it's sooo comfy!

The scent of nip even brought Leo out in the midst of everyone. First he just sniffed from under the bench tunnel.

Forget it, Barbarian! You may sleep on my butterfly blanket, stomp in my laundry baskets, rub on my daddy's legs, take over the beds, but this, THIS is Mine!

Leo took the hissy hint. For the moment..

Oh this is marvelous..

I have to rub on every inch of it! And nibble off all the nip!

I think I have found... cat-vana!

Think Leo is going to get a chance? Check in tomorrow!

Those hammicks are great! We love ours.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Star seems to want to keep the hammick just for herself - we don't blame her!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

So cute!

LP said...

We are still bugging LP to get us one of those! She is so lax about satisfying our every need!! How long does it take to get one from order to delivery?

Can't wait to see Leo's!

I've wanted to get a hamick for a long time for my babies. It's wonderful that Star loves hers! And it's really cool that it comes packed in catnip!! :) Hopefully Leo will get to check out this one or at least get a turn in the other one.

Crafting Queen said...

Oh wow, that's looks like fun. I must get my human to get me one.

We love our ham-micks. We started with one and now have three. They are all near radiators, and we like them so much on cold days. We are anxious to see what tomorrow brings at your house. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Star we got ours last year and had a great time getting our scent all over just like you

Cathy Keisha said...

You are the butterfly girl, Star.

Forty Paws said...

Nothing like packing them in premium catnip to get the cats to love the Ham-Micks!
