Tabby Tuesday:  I Needed a New Toy with Simon

tabby tuesday simon 04122022

Howdy gang, I know it’s hard to believe, but I needed a new toy to play with.  It seems I’m completely out of toys.  What?  You don’t believe that?!?!  I wonder why you wouldn’t believe it.  Oh, don’t pay any attention to the two piles of toys behind me, they’re not new.  Notice I said I needed a NEW toy, there is a difference.

Anyways,  I’m always on the hunt for something new to play with and the other night I scored a fun one.  The Dad was lying on the couch and was about to doze off.  Well, as is his habit, if he feels a snooze coming on he takes out his hearing aids and puts them on the coffee table.  By the way, I’ve never seen any coffee on that table.  Well, he did doze off and I took the opportunity to have a bit of fun with one of those hearing things.  When the Dad woke up he only had one hearing aid.  The hunt was on.  Where did he find it?  Under the couch!  Hey, it was fun while it lasted.

Okay, I’ve gotta scoot.  Have a fun Tabby Tuesday and a I’ll be seeing you soon! Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Yep – we get a NEW toy and the next day it’s OLD. We need a constant supply of NEW! That’s why I have three baskets full of toys. Is that a tough concept to grasp???? I think not!!!!

we can’t leave things lying about because Beau doens’t play with them, he swallows stuff. YUCK, would not want that in the ear after the processing. MOL… glad he found it… maybe you could have a yard sale, or garage sale and sell off some of your toys and buy more.. people do that all the time here.. why not cats?

New toys are always necessary but be extra careful with the hearing aid, Simon.

Oh boy, oh boy! I bet you had some trouble from that incident! In the future you better leave those alone. Good thing your dad loves you.

So, did you hear any better with it? Did you hear Dad say, “no not a toy” … did Dad hear you reply, “meow”.

Smon…you outdid yourself this time! And Dad could consider a nice looking ceramic box for the coffee table, maybe a Wilow branded one, suh as my mom has to see tiny things in.

MOL! Simon, I think the best toys are those things that aren’t supposed to be toys. ~Ernie

We suspect that your Dad wasn’t overly pleased with the missing hearing aid? Sounds like something Benny would do!

We agree, you absolutely do need a new toy. We think you were creative to find one of your own but bet your Dad wasn’t thrilled at your choice.

Well now, Simon!
Cats are reknown for using average household items as toys, so you’ve done the cat world proud.
Your Dad, methinks, may find a different place for his aids next time.

Bwahahahahahahaha. You played with dads hearing aid? I’m guessing that will be the only time ever. Those babies are expensive.

Have a purrfect day. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

We’re glad your dad found his hearing aid. Those things can be expensive to replace. We bet you had lots of fun batting it around until it landed under the couch. BOL!

We find that a little catnip sprinkled on the OLD toy pile makes them more appealing…LOL

HAHA…its always fun to pull little jokes on folks. I tend to do it prob more then I should. But with Dad’s hearing things just don’t put them somewhere that he can’t find it, he needs that when you furs talk to him. As for a toy…I pretty much don’t buy anymore cause my furs only play with certain things. I did make one with yarn tied to a stick and they loved that. Or a nice box, laundry basket….cats are funny. Have fun sweet cakes.

Hint to your pawrents (Simon, turn your head and don’t read!).

Half of the toys need to go in a box and go out in the garage or in the attic. Every few months, those come out and the ones that are out go away. Voila, “new” toys!

I think it moved under the couch on it’s own.

Now you brought me some ideas too, Simon…😹Pawkisses🐾😽💞

I understand your problem, Simon. But you should never play with your dad’s hearing aids! He needs them to hear you and the other cats. How will he know you have something to say if he can’t hear you?
