Tabby Tuesday: The Joy of the Toy

      40 Comments on Tabby Tuesday: The Joy of the Toy

tabby tuesday simon 03132018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello gang, it’s Tabby Tuesday with me, Simon!  I know I’ve told you this before, but I totally love toys, they are all so much fun.  You can see a couple of my favorites, a multi-color mousie and of course, the famous Nip Nanner.

I’m not quite sure how it happens, but every time the Mom or the Dad puts the toys in the toy basket they end up scattered out n’ about again.  It’s a mystery!  Actually our toys have outgrown the toy basket and we have the toy basket, a toy bucket and a toy box as well.  That means we have plenty of room for more toys, right?

My absolute favorite toy is a blue and white semi-big mouse.  I toss and chase that thing everywhere.  The Mom and Dad make it go rest at bedtime because I would be chasing that sucker all through the night.  Now I don’t see a thing wrong with that, but the peeps seem to think I’m not the quietest mouser in the world.  Hey, you don’t have to be quiet to be a good mouser, just aggressive and purrsistent!  Oh well, I suppose we both need a little rest from time to time.

What about you, what’s your favorite toy?  Tell me please, I may need to put one on my wish list!  Have a fun Tabby Tuesday everyone, see you soon!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

It’s wonderful that you have so many toys to choose from, Simon! Tama loves the laser pointer more than anything else. Da Genj loves the Cat Dancer. Beebs is not very toy-cetnric, however.

I love my sparkle balls – they are fun to play fetch with! My human keeps them in her desk drawer, and I’m always finding them and taking them out.

haha that is just rude that they take it at night. Cassie enjoys furry balls while Orlin just likes to eat and destroy anything and everything. TP is the best according to him.

We all love the Nanners and the mousie thing on the end of that long string. The string is fun to chew on too. But the Mom really doesn’t let us chew the string. Sounds like you have such a good time Simon. You all have a great day.

You have so many toys !!! Simon
I only have my favorites. I love rubber ball, mousies and tails ( which a stick ) Many of mine was donated to other kitties when I moved to Thailand. Anyhow, it’s very nice to meet you

Our nip nanner is our favorite toy. It’s the one toy that we all will play with and lick until it’s soaking wet.

Well Simon my favorite toy right now isn’t really even a CAT TOY. It’s a plastic straw. I have the BEST time with it. Mom says Angel Sammy liked straws too!

Hugs, Teddy

I never actually see Sam playing with her nip nanner (maybe she does it quietly in the middle of the night!), but it is covered with her fur so I do think she is secretly playing with it!

Some day we will get a kitten again so we can once again enjoy watching kitties playing with toys! You have fun, Simon!!

Lately we’ve been playing lots with the metallic crunchy balls. Most of them had ended up under the refrigerator. After Dad got them out, we’ve been having a great time, especially Misty May. Your nanner looks totally unused. It only takes a couple of days for us to get one slimed up and icky!

Our Little Bit knew every toy she had. I think she counted them. You could see her inspecting her toy box often. So cute.

So you’re not a quiet mouser. Yes, you do need to let the peeps sleep or they won’t be happy.

Have a purrfect Tabby Tuesday. My best to your peeps. ♥

The most fun of a toy box is emptying it, right, Brother Simon? We don’t understand why the humans insist on putting them all back in the boxes every night when we are just going to pull them out again. Sort of like, what’s the point of making the bed:)

I have a toy basket and I get into it every day. My favorite is still Donkey though even though I am allowing him some time off. My Floppy Mousie and Fat mousies are next and then my Duckies, Fat and Floppy. My Christmas Tree too. Kong made that. I kinda let my Nip Nanner go for quite a time.

Right now I have a wonderful stuffed apple toy that I love to play with…especially when Mama throws it and I can bring it back to her. Of course, you are a kitty…so you don’t have to bring it back to your Mama!

Simon, it sounds like you know how to have a good time! My landlady came over once – I’d picked up all the toys and put them in the basket – and she asked me how I trained Bear to put the toys back in the basket. Hahahahahaha.

My cats can’t have toys because cat bro Bert will eat them. He ate a nip nanner in about 4 minutes!

Toys are fun. My dogs loves to shred his toys. I had to buy some hard rubber Kong toys that he couldn’t destroy and he even killed one of those.

It is always a great thing to have choices!
Our Newman has a toy box with about 10 different toys in it. He almost empties the box out every single day. He takes one out of the box and carries it around with him for a while. Drops it anywhere in the house. I can’t seem (or doesn’t want) to pick a “used” one up again. So back to the box for another. And so on, and so on…..
By the end of the day we find them all over the house.

Simon, the same thing happens to our toys, too! Aside from the red dot, we like to mix it up (and scatter toys all over).

I mostly love human things like the plastic that comes around the lids of vitamin bottles. I do love my Skineeezz mice. I’m not sure if they sell them anymore but they’re pawsome to throw around.

Most excellent toys Simon. I too love my toys. My favorite is Ratty. He is getting pretty threadbare. Mom ordered a new one and I now have a new Rat (on a stick like Ratty was) I LOVE to chase it, and I have been chewing on the rope to “liberate” the new rat, so Mom takes him off at night. But I still bring my old rat to bed and I sing to him in bed!
