Squeaky squeaky mouse mouse....

Post by Helen Mile » Tue, 02 Oct 2001 01:22:23



This afternoon, because it was raining heavily and the fur kids were very
bored, I drove out to Petsmart and bought them some new toys. (Am I well
trained or what!!).

One of the things I bought them (besides the obligatory catnip felt mice)
was a *** mouse with a microchip inside that makes it emit a high pitched
*squeak* every time it is prodded with a paw, or is thrown in the air. What
a COOL toy! Robbie (who *never* plays) has turned into quite the
killer-hunter. He and Tiger are tearing around the house with this thing,
with it squeaking away, and they are driving me NUTS! All I can hear is this
blasted squeaking!

Talk about making a rod for my own back!

It's been in the water dish 4 times in 10 minutes, so far. What is it with
cats, toys and water?

one of these. Thanks for the laugh.

I was at Petsmart yesterday and almost bought that!  It looked cool but
Dusty just doesn't play anymore.  He will play with his sparkly stick
only if you bat him on the head with it.  Then he just moves his paws,
the rest of the bloated form stays laying in the same position.  Instead
I bought a six pack of colorish mousies and a hot pink kitty collar with
rhinestones ......... for my daughter, not for the Flabulous One.  She
is going to be a cat for Halloween.  She wants me to pin the mousies all
over her black kitty outfit!  LOL.  There was an older couple in the
aisle looking at collars and here I am trying them on around my
daughters neck.  They never said anything but the looks they gave
me....... ;-)

There were the cutest kittens at the adoption center.  Five 10 week
old's all sleeping in this little tiny bed.  Two of them were curled up
in balls on top of and two were partially on top of one poor little guy
that was laid stretched out on the bottom.  That poor kitty was
supporting the weight of everyone and could care less.  Snoozing away
with his little arms sticking straight up in the air.  They were so
squished together at first I only counted 4.  They were adorable and
never even flinched when my daughter pet them all.  Kitten fever, kitten
fever, kitten fever........

LMAO.
Mine ALWAYS put their little fur mice in their food dishes.

On a similar topic, when I was showing my apartment to prospective new
tenants in May, they brought their two boys along. They were 6&8. They
were awfully quiet, and when they had gone, I turned around to see
that each of the cats' food bowls had 4 fur mice in it, head/body in
the bowl and tail*** out over the edge. Looked like 4 bowls of
kitty shrimp***tail. I laughed so hard I had to call the parents and
tell them what the boys had been up to. heehee.

I wanted a leather collar, and the ones in the retail clothing stores
are horribly expensive. So I went to petco and got a dog collar. 1/2"
wide, black plain leather. Looks super cute on, and I buckle it in
back under my hair. Anyway, I got some hilarious looks while trying it
on too. My boyfriend was with me, and helping me choose the color and
buckle the collars. lol.

Ever been to a Science-Fiction Fan Convention?  Last year,
at LASCON, there were a couple of girls (in the kind of
scanty costumes you used to see on Sci-Fi magazine covers of
the "BEM, Beef & ***" era)  "walking", on leashes, several
big guys wearing "normal" clothes, plus rhinestone dog
collars!  Of course, you see plenty of 'Star Trek" and
"Babylon Five" characters, too, but some people really
employ imagination (and as in this case, a minimum of money
- the basis for the girls' outfits were just bikinis plus a
few yards of chiffon) to accomplish something much more
original!

Never been to one BUT I had my wedding reception at a posh hotel in
Oakbrook, IL. We had Ballroom 1 and Ballroom 2 and 3 were hosting the
Annual Chicagoland Sci-Fi Convention.  I got to ride in the elevator
with the Devil.  Saw lots of really strange folks, some with snakes and
rats and was asked by a group of woman (much like the ones you
mentioned) while in the bathroom in my wedding dress, just who the heck
I was suppose to be! :)

Sounds like a great toy, Helen.

I always feel like I've truly accomplished something if I find a toy that
one of the cats really likes.

Want another? Clemmie's has been sitting in the toy box since the day I
brought it home. She never has developed the hunting instinct; if it isn't
in a package marked "cat food" she doesn't recognize it as A Good Thing.


and I'll respond with a gray *** squeaky mouse. I hate waste!
