The reason it's a Scratchy Christmas is because my kitties got their new scratcher opened on Christmas day. And let me tell you, it was an instant hit! And the moment they got it is when the batteries decided to die in the camera.. So these pictures are crappy cell phone pictures, but I think you get the idea that the kitties were kinda happy.
First up was Leo, which surprised me a little actually!
Leo: Double wide? Are you trying to say something, mom?
Me: No Leo, some manufacturers have a weird idea of what single and double are. You're a big boy, but you're also all floof.
Leo: Thank you, mommy. Ok, I claim this as mine then!
(Cashmere in the food dish, Glitter's back in the foreground)
Glitter: Yes yes, you're a long lean tube of a cat. But I object to your claim-age of the scratcher!
Cashmere: *munchmunch* Yeah, we didn't even get *munchmunch* a turn yet!
Leo: Too bad, so sad, I got here first!
Glitter: I just might have to tell a certain tuxie girl that SOMEcat is a selfish double wide mean ol' goober of a boycat..
Cashere: Now that's a good plan! *chompmunch*
(Considering how closely Glitter was watching things, I was equally surprised that Cashmere was second!)
Cashmere: Oh yeah! It has good nip on it!
Glitter: No wonder ol' nip-head wanted to claim it.
Cashmere: Who you callin' 'nip-head'!?
Glitter: Um, I was calling Leo a niphead.. but if the snort fits..
Cashmere: Oh, that's better then, everyone knows that Leo has a nip probl... hey!
Cashmere: Oh boy, oh yeah, this is so yummy.. I can't resist rubbing my head alllllll over it..
Glitter: Yeah, 'Leo' is the one with a nip problem..
Cashmere: Oh rolla rolla rolla roll around, nothin' better than that scratchy sound..
Glitter: I'm never gonna get a turn at this rate!
Cashmere: Oh hush.. I'm just putting my seal of approval on it.. purrrrrrrrrrrrr
(Finally, Glitter got a turn!)
Glitter: *snifffff* Oh yeah.. this is good nip! smells like mommy's secret 'for toys' stash!
Me: Yeah well, we were ripped off, there was no nip packet with that as advertised.
Glitter: Aww, what a shame, no cheap comes-with-the-scratcher nip for us! Hee hee, weeeeeee
Me: *whisper* Yeah, Leo and Cashmere have the nip problems..
Glitter: This should be mine, right? Because the other one, that I LOVE, got torn to bits. Right? And I was falsely accused of the deed, right? So.. Mine!
Me: I wouldn't say exactly 'falsely' accused.. More like ALL the blame wasn't yours.
Glitter: Close enough! Mine mine mine! Hee hee!
Leo: (from a distance) No fair! My claim stands! Besides, there's no proof!
Glitter: Roll that beautiful destructive footage!
Leo: (from a distance) Uh... footage? *gulp*
Me: Oh, sorry. Not today, out of space! Guess you'll have to settle for a three way claim!
I have been meaning to share THOSE pictures.. Perhaps this week!
