T.G.I.F. Tell Gracie


Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Some weeks just seem to drag on forever, not this one though, it just seemed to zip right by!  Hey, I am not complaining, I think we should have more than one weekend each week, don’t you?  Here is the T.G.I.F. for today, it’s Tell Gracie It’s Flying.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Believe me, if you tell her it’s flying she will try her best to catch it.  This is Sister Gracie with one of our favorite playtime toys.  You see, every night we have playtime and one of our most favorite things to play is fishy pole.  We have a small fishy pole like the kind that some humans might buy for their mini-humans.  Then Dad got some mini clothes pins at the craft store and he drilled a tiny hole in one of the ends opposite the clippy.  He then attached that to the fishing line and presto, instant fun!  He can attach all kind of things to that clothes pin, but our absolute favorite is small strips of tissue paper.  We love it, and we chase it all over the house.  You should see it when we all go after it at the same time.  And when I catch it I sing and do a happy dance.  Anyways, fun it is, and we never get tired of this one.

So what do you have planned this weekend?  The weather is supposed to turn cooler here in the South again, so it looks like snuggle season will be starting soon.  Have a great weekend everyone, and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

That is such a great toy. Your Dad is just the bestest to figure that out. He should market it. Hope all of you have a good week and try to stay dry and warm.

The mom votes for more than one weekend each week. At the same rate of pay, of course. 🙂

That’s a terrific action shot of Sister Gracie! Your dad is very creative with his toy-making, Brian.

We wish you all a great weekend — we’re already cool here, any cooler and the mom says she’ll have to start wearing her long johns. It was -1C (just below freezing F) this AM!

Hurray for snuggle season. Spontaneous is much more of a lap cat when it is cold. The toy is a good idea, that way you and your Dad get to play.
Have a great weekend,

I love to play with human things as toys. I’m still loving my rockets. Watch for my video soon. Gracie is so lucky her name starts with G so she Gets a lot of TGIF attention.

Wow, your human is very creative! My human thinks taking a used twist tie and tossing it around is special.

Not that I’m complaining (much) – I love twist ties!

That looks so fun, Gracie. Your Dad sure knows how to make fun things. It’s cold here in our neck of the woods, in the South. Mom says she hopes I snuggle with her tonight.

A nice homemade toy, or even an empty box or bag is all that is needed.
