Am I allowed to ask more questions in response to the answers to some of these questions?


Yes...  The vote was 3 to 1 about that.

TBT's slippers: okay, so are you saying that between you, you just rip and tear at anything you want around the house? That sounds a bit naughty and in the case of the big watery bed, positively disastrous!

Egg cartons with nip or treats - I agree that it was a fabulous suggestion. I guess the treats would make a rattling sound until you figured out how to get them out, so that's even more fun.

Expensive new cat tree: it's a Rule. It's written down somewhere. The more $$ paid for a cat toy, the less the cat will use it. That's why cats like cardboard boxes and paper bags - they cost nuffink.

Dead things pics: whadayamean that you didn't think the agreement applied to mousies. Why wouldn't it? I think you secretly enjoyed shocking us all with those very confronting pics, posted without any warning and now you're just trying to squirm out of accepting responsibility.

Ayla's basket: well, it seems that TBT can be a bit slow sometimes, doesn't it - that he hadn't thought to bring the basket down to a workable/comfortable height before now. I guess better late than never. Perhaps TBT can store his slippers up on top of the kitchen cabinets now that there's space for them. They might keep them safe from bunny kicking.


Yeah thats a lot, whew...  But, we can answer.

TBTs slippers are especially good.  He has 2 pair.  He wears 1 largish with thick socks and 1 small without.  They are both softish leather and wunnerfully attackable.  We probably get more fun from them than he does.  Although it is confoosing when he is wearing them.  Fer some reason, we can't attack them much when he is wearing them.  Apparently, his feet bleed easily.  ~ Iza

The cardboard egg cartons are a favrite of ours.  Well MOSTLY Izas.  But Ive been caught doing some kicking myself.  Iffen TBT put treats in the egg cartons, I'd be after them a lot more.  ~ Marley

The cat trees are an exception to the "expensive" rool!  We all LOVE the trees.  We are expecting TBT to fix the tall platform, but not iffen it means there is a stoopid rippy 2" bolt sticking down in the hut below it!

The dead things pics are tricky.  We unnerstand that bunnies are iffy prey ta some of our Bein friends, but they are REAL eciting ta US.  And colorful birdies.  We dont find those often at all  (we get more birdies who die on the big glass doors then anny other way and they are already dead).

But vole-mousies are generally just too common fer us ta apologize for, so get used ta it.  We like catching them, TBT praises us for catchin them, an it is the most natural thing fer us ta catch.  An we post our posts about catchin them fer our fellow cats to enjoy...  We dont do it ta shock anny Beins, just to show off our happy-skills-and-thrills among our fellow kittehs.

We don't show ya a tenth of them cuz TBT doesn't see most of them.  We just eat them.  The ones HE sees are our gifts we bring ta the door.  I was just ecited by finding where they all went ta hide, and that I could catch every one, and that more would move in.  TBT depends on me (an sometimes Iza and Ayla) to keep them down to a dull yardy-squeek.  ~ Marley

The basket was up on the cabinets fer a few years before TBT took one down last week ta put toys in.  He has a collection of odd baskets, and most he wants ta save.  But that one was good fer collectin garden foods in daytime and toys at night.  I really liked it.  ~ Ayla

We hope that esplains some stuff...

It was a secret ballot.

But (*koff, koff*) Iza resents anything that takes TBTs attention away from her. Not that we are "saying"... ~ Ayla and Marley

Heeeee. I have to say that I am used to seeing hunting triumphs. Robin =was an indoor and outdoor kinda girl and she brought most things in the house!! because at night, since se was a very dark tortie we couldn't tell she had her mouth full when she knocked on the deck window to be let in. So a mouthful of bunny, chippy, SNAKIE, mouse, rat, birdie etc were ALL brought in (until we got wise and shined a flashlight on her from inside) to the house to be let loose. Ot was hardest to catch the mice and usually we could;t and we had a great lot of trouble. When we saw her gifts, we went outside to praise her and pet her and tell her what a mighty huntress h=she was...and bribed her inside so we could send the prey on it's way or toss it waaaaay out in the yard. (the little things). We used to bury everything but the cemetery got too much to handle there were so many residents.

Robin sure would have fit in here!

What a busy household you have! And we are proud of your hunting triumphs, as felines who don't get to go outside.

This post left us giggling - no, that's wrong - laughing is more like it. How funny you guys are.

Brian said...

I never get to do any hunting unless a critter makes its way into the house.

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

I'm glad to know you kitties include TBT in your hunting spoils.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Hunting skills are impawtant!!!
That's why we haz dem!

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

Of course you have to bring your TBT those gift offerings...cause you know he can't do it himself...
We only get to hunt if some mousie or bug decides to enter our lair. And we have to compete with dog-guy, being as he is a terrier, all varmints are his...he thinks, MOL!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

So now that the basket CLEARLY belongs to the kitties.. We think TBT needs to bring down another one for the toys. Am I right?

Jans Funny Farm said...

Ah, the truth behind the posts, eh? Interesting.

I am pleased to hear you bring some of your prey to TBT. It is very important to let the humans know that if they fall on hard times, we won't let them starve.

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

It's nice that you bring your prey to TBT. The cats who came way, way before us had a cat door and would bring the prey to the head peep in bed. We think that's why we aren't allowed out, so that never happens again!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

WOW These are the best posts EVER. I like that Megan! I wish she hadded a bloggy cause she visits us and we can't visit her. But we loved reading the backandforth Q&A. I love gory stuff but the Human is all squeamish. I guess she thinks that the meat she buys at the grocery story grew in little pieces on plastic trays.

Iza-Lambie, I love how you finished my song XOXOXO

Note for Spitty: I would have a blog if a I had a cat. But, since I don't, it would be a very boring old blog indeed.
