Toy Story

Generally speaking, I disapprove of playing with toys. I feel it diminishes my dignity, and it sends the Human scurrying for the flashy box.

But a few weeks ago, she brought home a beige rattly ball of nippy, yarny goodness (see it right beneath my Mancatly Roman nose? And no, my nose does NOT resemble a button, nor does it have just a hint of sweet upturn). My friends, this ball even has irresistible tentacles, like some kind of land-octopus!


Though it shames me to confess, I lubz my rattly ball. And the Human let slip that it came TWO to a package. I have yet to see its twin.

So, Kitties, "What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in the area!"

The Human and I will send a prize to the first kitteh to correctly identify the source of the quotation  ;-)

  6. That ratty ball looks irresistible, Spitty! I would never have gotten that quote. The only movies I ever watch are Cat Sitter videos and The Three Lives of Thomasina (which we have on DVD).

  9. I'm sorry, Spitty - we looked around, but it looks like your rattly ball's twin is officially a fugitive!

  11. Dear Spitty,

    Think of it as exercise equipment, not a toy!

    The Admiral's twin, the Queen Miss Catt, is an ally of the Realm. She has an Agent Blackjack to assist her with missions of espionage, counter-terrorism and security. I also need an agent. How does Sir Spitty sound? Or Sir Spitster?

  14. Spitty-the-Kitty, I have found no toy better than a ball made of yarn/twine/whatever that stuff is with a bell inside. Mine always meet an untimely death, though. One strand will start to peel loose, and then my mom 'accidentally' snags it in the vacuum, destroying the entire thing and making her say dirty words while she cuts the string off of the bar. Her laziness costs me my favorite things. *sigh*

    your friend, Fuzzy

  15. Dear Candidate Sir Spitty,

    Your duties should not prove too much for you; it mostly consists of gathering information when requested, participating in summits and conferences and representing your region at ceremonies. Would you like to be knighted? The Admiral and Queen are both hopeful you will join with me!

  16. The only place we can find the quote is on your blog! Lots of other places come up, but we can never find it. So, unless you show us an older source than your own, we claim the prize.

    Hee-hee

  17. On the subject of enticing toys, we wanna advise ya of that what will convert ya to toys forever. Its the Play-N-Squeak "Mousehunter" $5.99 at Petco, but we are sure it is available other places. It sounds alive! TBT has to put it inna box most of the time ta keep us from battin it all day (and let him sleep at night).

    An he keeps it inna small box of NIP so it smells great too. He calls it "mousie-marinatin".

  18. Thanks for letting us know the quote was from "The Fugitive". TBT read the whole quote. Good stats ("Average foot speed over uneven ground barring injuries is 4 miles-per-h

    our. That gives us a radius of six miles."). But he wonders why the detectives didn't increase the search area to account for the time it would take them to GET to the 6 mile radius to do the search.

    ;)
