Thursday Commentary/Answery Day
Another day of answering comments and questions from our friends... We enjoy this.
Katie Isabella said "Ground is hard clay and chert." Get a "garden fork", the tines get around the rocks and through the clay. TBT got a solid steel one that is indestructible.
About cardboard egg cartons: Summer said "I never thought of those as cat toys!" Everything is a cat toy. You just have to be creative.
About cardboard egg cartons: Megan said "But, I wonder, how do you know that it's okay to bunny-kick that egg carton and rip it to shreds but not do something similar to, say, TBT's slippers?" You should see me bunny-kicking TBT's slippers! They are all suede leather with fuzzy insides! ~ Iza
About cardboard egg cartons: The Meezer Mews asked "Was that cardboard nip flavored??
Maybe TBT can put some kibbles in there fur you to hunt!" No the egg cartons aren't nip-flavored. And no TBT didn't put treats in the egg carton. But he thinks that is a GREAT idea and will do it next time!
About the replacement post fer the cat tree: The Whiskeratti asked "We're glad you are getting a fully functional tree again but DARN! he shoulda bought a new tree. They got some fancy options out there now...." Yeah, we have seen good ones. We especially like that one in the center of the Katnip Lounge. But it is over $400 and TBT says he has never seen a cat on it there. He is annoyingly practical.
About the Nip plant: Pilch 15 and Meowing said "OH my, that last photo looks like you may have overdone just a bit :)" In the immortal words of Phineus and Ferb, "Yes, Yes I am". Did. That Nip plant stored up its greatness while the rains fell while I was away. ~ IZA
About the Mousie What Was Caught: Megan said "I thought we'd agreed that posts with close-ups of dead things needed to come with a warning for those of us who are a tad squeamish." Sorry, we dint (and dont) think that applied ta mousies. ~ Marley
About the basket I was sittin in: Megan asked "Where has TBT been hiding that basket all this time?" The basket was previously up on top of the kitchen cabinets where even *I* cant get to. ~ Ayla
About the replacement cat tree post: Many hoped it was fixed by now. It isn't. It is badly made. Instead of flush strong plastic holders, there are just wood blocks screwed in. And they arent flush to the surface, so it rocks if attached. With skinny bolts that stick out and could hurt us! It is being returned with complaints and HISSES. TBT says he can do better than THAT hisself! And will. ~ IZA
And lastly, about that bag of thistle seeds ta power our Birdie TV: Its a 50# bag of really fresh seeds, and to keep the seeds fresh, they have all been put in plastic containers in the freezer. It worked last Fall/Winter, I hope it will work again this time. And we are being visited by goldfinches again, so we guess they like it. ~ TBT
