Cat Toy Update: Holy Shit, Thank You!!!

So, I got a box today with two slow feeder bowls, then checked the Amazon list.

Every. Single. Thing.

Every single thing on the list is in this office currently as I’m typing this.

Holy shit. Fuck me running. My heart’s beating really fast. I expected to get one, maybe two, probably none, but ALL?  ALL?

…my second favorite ME character using my second favorite phrase

First off, THANK YOU to everyone who retweet, reposted, passed around, sent by carrier pigeon that post. You all rock so hard for this.

Secondly, double stuffed THANK YOU to everyone who was going to send something, but couldn’t because the list was already sold out. Also to everyone who wanted to send something, but couldn’t for whatever reason.  Grab a guitar, because you also rock.

And Lastly, super sized with a side of fries THANK YOU to the awesome, hella awesome, ridiculously awesome folks who sent me all of these lovely things.  All of you get Niki awesome points that will never expire:

  • Iris
  • Monica
  • Olivia


(not listing last names because it’s the internet duh)

I can’t thank you enough.  Weasel can’t thank you enough. Even Sammy can’t thank you, and he’s a grump.

But enough thank yous. I know what you’re all here for: Action Shots! Lots of sideways Action shots!

…and so did Weasel (the crinkle bag; he doesn’t seem too fond of the mousey)

It took Weasel some days to get the hang of the new feeder, poor thing.

And then the little fucker started cheating.

The only one who got worn out after this was HIM.

And of course, the best cat toy ever – the box

The toys that were sent by not photo’d are because Sammy love the mouse on a stick, but wouldn’t stay still enough for me to take a shot, and we got the metal slow feeders today.

Wow, I’m still overwhelmed, but I couldn’t get a day go by without thanking everyone, from me and the kitties.

Cat Toy Update!!

I’ve started getting boxes like it’s freakin’ Christmas and OMG you guys are the best.

I know that I have a few more coming (folks told me) and once they come in, I’ll combine them all for a huge thank you post with names and of course, a bunch of action shots.

From the bottom of the cold dead space where my heart should be, thank you all!

Help Me Play With My Cat

So, as I’ve mentioned before, I have multiple disabilities.

I also have a cat. His name is Weasel. And I am definitely his human.

Exhibit A
Exhibit A

He’s a Good Kitty, when he’s not walking over what feels like each and every sore spot on my body to wake me up (then he’s a Little Fucker). He’s a munchkin, but runs and jumps like no one told him his legs are shorter than the average cat’s. He’s got Siamese in him, so he’s talky.  He loves to ‘lead’ me to the office and bedroom, waits for me by the bathroom door, and when I’m tired, he naps right beside me. And like most cats, he needs playtime, stimulation and all that.

Which I would love to provide, but as the years go on, I’m less able to play with him without getting exhausted or sore (one of his favorite things is for one of us dragging a bit of string around for him to chase and catch, you see).  And when he’s bored, he sleeps a great deal more and finds things to gnaw on that I’d rather him not gnaw on: plastic bags, my compression bags, the vacuum bags we use to store the big blanket away, plastic cereal bags, plastic this, plastic that, you get the picture.

And when he wants to play and I can’t, the meows are so pitiful that it breaks my heart.

So, after observing the sorts of things he likes to do, I put together a wishlist of toys that I think he’ll enjoy, and two food bowls so he and the resident Old and Grumpy Cat Sammy don’t get into too many fights during meal time. But I’m broke.

I’m reaching out to y’all to help my short fuzzy boy out.  Here’s the link. I’m not asking for everything on the list at once, so you can do whatever you can, that would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Niki M and Weasel

....and Weasel thanks you too!
