Tabby Tuesday with Simon – A New and Noisy Toy

      42 Comments on Tabby Tuesday with Simon – A New and Noisy Toy

Hooray, it’s Tabby Tuesday but maybe it should be called Tabby Toy Tuesday. I sure do love toys, but I think you probably figured that one out by now.  I do have fun and it doesn’t matter what toy it is, I’ll figure out a way to have fun with it.  Cat Toys are just the best!

Sometimes though I find a new toy that I don’t recognize and that’s pretty exciting too.  It’s even more exciting if it’s a noisy toy.  I found one just like that recently, while the Mom and Dad were sleeping.  It was upstairs and it was actually stuck under the upstairs bathroom door.  It sure looked like it needed help.  It was quite the challenge, but after a while .I finally managed to set it free.

That toy was heavier than it looked but I wanted to take it downstairs to play.  It was hard to get it to the steps, but I did it and I had to get it down the steps one at a time.  Bump, noisy bump, things that go bump in the night.  It sure made a loud bump noise when it hit the next step.  Finally, it was a a lot of work, but I got it down to the lower landing

Then the Dad woke up and came to see my new toy. The Dad said it is a doorstop, but that door still looked like a door to me so it sure didn’t stop it from being a door.  The Dad let me keep it and I did get it all the way downstairs.  It’s not nearly as noisy now but it’s still lots of fun.

Have a fun Tuesday everyone and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

That’s a great toy. We hate it when our toys get stuck under the door in the lounge. Especially the crinkly ones. Because you can bet, just when we start our nap that Mummy will open the door and the crinkle will scrape along the wood and make a right loud noise.

Well done on freeing the new toy from under the door. It must have been hard work, but you persevered.

Whoa! I watch we had those! Have your dad buy you those foam rockets if you really want to have fun. He can shoot them all over the house and you and Seal can chase them. Doesn’t make much noise but they are fun. Oh, if you bat the launcher around, that makes lots of noise.

Who knew you could have such fun with a door stop. I laughed out loud. It’s good that dad can tell you what things are.

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

That is a pawsome toy! Tonight Balthazar found one in our baffroom. It was behind the door but not under it. When he hits it it goes SPROINK. So he keeps hitting it and daddy comes and say ‘Balthazar! Stop hitting that!’ and he does…..for a little bit. But that Sproink is a lot of fun

I keep telling Ken that our dog, Falcor thinks everything is a toy. Looks like you think the same thing.

It just proves that anything can be a toy. Our cat Chris stole a visiting baby’s pacifier once. He then went into their diaper bag and stole another one. After they zipped the bag shut he managed to unzip it and stole a third one. Of course, we had to buy them three new ones but Chris had great toys for quite a while after that.

Toys that make noise in the middle of the night are just the best! We wish we had stairs to throw them down!

Looks like you found a new super toy there. Who needs balls, catnip bags, or mousies. You have your very own doorstop to play with now, and the best time to play is, of course, in the middle of the night. Happy Tabby Toy Tuesday Simon. Have fun.

We sometimes wonder why we spend all our money on toys, when you cats and dogs can make pretty much any household item into a toy! MOL

Simon, we think the best toys are those that were never intended to be toys…like that doorstop.

Oh, found toys are the best. Our parents can spend tons of money on our toys but the best are the ones we find lying around.

That would be a fun toy, and noisy in the middle of the night.

HAHAHA…..well Simon, I think some of the BEST toys – are things that we find and “adopt” as new toys like a doorstop. It’s called being CREATIVE right?

Charlee: “New toys sure are fun! Especially ones that you find lying around that your humans forgot to give you.”
Chaplin: “Or that aren’t really toys.”
Charlee: “Chaplin. You know the rule.”
