I have OCCTBD

It is official! I have OCCTBD (Obsessive Compulsive Cat Toy Buying Disorder). I believe I have mentioned several times before (here, here and here) that I love to buy toys for Bubbles and Mrs. B. The problem is that they don't like to play with the toys I buy. And yet I don't stop buying them! So the only solution is for me to play with them myself.


Last night Bubbles got into the cube for about 2 minutes. I think he just wanted to make me feel better, since he could see that I was disappointed that they don't like it. I like it! One day I'm going to find a toy they like! It has to be something they can play with by themselves. It is my mission. Any suggetions?

Manny told me to tell you that they probably would purrfer a milk or soda cap; a cardboard box; fake toy mice; a fruit loop and a christmas tree.

You can send me the cubes. I likes them and have lots of funs with them. I use them to hidey in and then jump out at mum.

Cecilia said...

A catnip mouse on a string tied to the ceiling or the frame of a doorway. But you have to hang it low enough.

Its my cat cube!!!!!!!! Not fair that you have more than one. They won't let me have more than one because I chew on them 'cause they're tasty.

Do your kitties like nip? If they do then Chase has the bestest toy ever they will love. Its a banana FILLED with nip, no other stuff, just pure nip. He loves it and no one else is allowed to touch it.

Thanks for visiting me!

I love all toys except one. That was the Cat Racket, which was like a fabric tunnel that crinkled when you walked or played in it. I didn't like the noise. (Don't tell anyone, but it kinda scared me.)

But you know what? Sometimes my mom buys cat toys and then keeps them for herself. I should write about that because I don't think that's right.

Fevvers. We has those cubes an I luve runnin through them chasin somefing. Bonnie gets in an swats anything that passes. When I'm inside, sumtimes a toy rubs the outside an I HAVE to attack it. If yur mom thros a milk ring on top of the cube, that might be interestink.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Sometimes the Quiet Girl takes one of our toys and keeps it. She thinks some of them are too cute to get torn up and dunked in the water bowl. Well, then what are they for?
So...you heard about that little "incident" this morning? The purring? The ear and face and neck rubbing? The lap? The hand licking? You heard it all? ::sigh:: I even rolled over and let her pet my tummy and I didn't even bite her. I don't know what came over me. Hunger maybe. She's the feeder person.
