Tuxie Tuesday

"Tuxie Tuesday?" you may be saying to yourself, "But you don't have any Tuxies!" And you would be right.

But recall, if you will, that we just got my mom a pretty grey Tuxie named Piper! So this is a Piper update!

First I have to ask you, do you know the sweet, darling, most lovely Lady Tuxie of the half 'stach, Katie Isabella? Leo is infatuated with her, of course, and is one of her biggest suitors (he hopes he tops the list anyway). Well sweet Katie has a rather endearing habit. You'll see in a minute why I bring it up.

Katie bring her toys, one by one, to her mom's bedroom every night. How she's feeling depends on how many toys show up, and it's always fun to know just which toys get the honor of being escorted to the room each day.

I have always thought that was an adorable thing. My kitties do not do this. They may bat their toys around, but they are left in random places, probably where they got tired of playing. But they do not bring us gifts.

So when my mother shared new pictures of Piper with me, I was floored! Because, look!

This is my mom's bedroom! And see what's there? Toys! Piper brings her toys in at night! There's a pink crocheted mousie that guess who made ;) And a grey mousie and a black mousie that I got Piper for a welcome that she HATED! Until now, apparently she now likes them enough to bring them to the bedroom at night, yay! And then there's the fuzzy thing... Um, I have no idea what that thing is. Maybe some kind of mouse because I think I see a face on it? But anyway, look, four toys!

So is this a tuxie thing? Do any other kitties do it, and if so, are they tuxies too?? Isn't it sweet?!

Here's Piper with another favorite toy of hers. Like the pink mouse and whatever that fuzzy thing was, this was also one of Sir Moose-a-lot's toys. Piper was very happy to inherit them. There is a toy on each end of this string. My mom holds one end and tosses the other as far as she can and then drags it back to herself, Piper following and attacking all the way!

Piper: It's time to play toss the toy, get on the ball, lady! I needs ta chase somethin'!

And here she is waiting patiently for her snack. Ok, maybe not so patiently. She's ready for her num nums!
I'm not looking at your camera until you gives me my noms! You're a whole minute and a half late already!

Still waiting for my noms, but now you can't pet the kitty until you FEED the kitty! See how smart I is? Crack open a can of stinky goodness already, please!

We hope you enjoyed our very first Tuxie Tuesday! We think it's awesome that we finally get to do one! Smooch a tuxie today if you can!

(Leo said he'd like to smooch Katie today, then he blushed and looked hopefully for a teleport tunnel!)

I'm ready for transport Leo. I'll whisper when in a little while. Thank you for telling about Piper and including me as well with my babies. Piper and I are proud of our babies.

My Donkey always comes in without fail! There have just been Donkey by himself or I will bring both mousies, Fat Pink and Floppy, and Duckie. I am so glad Piper loves her babies and her mom enough to bring her something to play with. My mom always weakly murmurs "OK" when I make my announcement. Does Piper too?

Interesting if it is a Tuxie thing. Hope other Tuxies tell us.

I am so happy that Piper is having such a great time!

It might be a tuxie thing - our tuxie, Maurice, liked to bring his toys too.

That is very sweet that Piper brings toys like Katie. My new tuxie, Emmy plays with a lot of toys, but has yet bring me any.

That is so sweet about Piper carrying toys. Iza fetches toys back when tossed, and I (Ayla) sometimes bring several of my milk rings onto the bed at night while TBT is sleeping.

Piper sure is cute! My babies don't bring me presents, either. I think it would be adorable if they did!

Mom Paula's floor is littered with toys Truffle and Brulee bring into the bedroom. There are times a toy makes it on top of the bed. Mom Paula also loves it.

We'd love you to consider contributing some photos for the 2018 Cat Blogging Calendar.
