Hi all kitties and friends! Thanks a lot for your comments on my last post. They helped to make me feel like a normal kitty again!
Remember how I told you last weekend my Mom was up all night doing all sorts of crazy things? Well one of the things she did was make me a toy. Two things brought the toy about. First, I kept telling her I wanted to try out a box like Timmy and lots of other kitties have. A box finally came in the mail, but it was very big and I didn't use it much. Then when she was in the pet store last Saturday, she saw all sorts of kitty condos and things that she wanted to buy for me, but that were way too expensive. She wanted to get me something I could play in, "put the bite on" (as Timmy says!), and something I could hide in. So when she got home, she put the two ideas together, and made me what you see in this picture here! She took my box, taped it closed, then cut a hole in it so I could have a hidey place. Then she cut some holes in the top and strung through one of my toys on a string (a nip sock). Then she took the stick that used to have a purple mousey on it (he finally broke free a few weeks ago), and tied a new teethy toy to it and stuck it in the top. I have been enjoying it very much. I mostly play with the toys on it and try to get them off (Mommy found the stick toy under the desk in the office today). I like to scratch the box, but I haven't chewed it very much. I like to sit on top of it and be up high and look around. But I haven't been in it very much. I get too distracted by the toy in the doorway and just play with that. Mom says she'll keep that in mind for future models because she wants me to have a warm hidey place. She wanted me to tell you about it, because maybe one of your Mom's will get inspired to make you a new toy or something. It sure gave me fresh interest in some of my older ones!
She also wanted me to post this picture because she says you can tell how well I take care of my fur, and you can see how big I'm getting! You can also see that I have a bit of a belly! But I'm a growing boy so I'm telling her that's ok. She says "We'll have to see what the vet says". I'm not afraid of him.
Hope you all stay well out there!
