Demolition, Death and Destruction

Greetings, Effurrybody!

Queen Trixie here! Gosh, it's been Simply Ages since We last posted!
I wanted to tell you about a New Toy that Mummy bought for Us last week.

It was a black toy mousie on a kind of springy thingy that She thought would be great for practicing Smacky-Paws Boxing, when no Spurr-ing Purrtner was available:

The boys loved it, of course (mol)!

However, it didn't take Shimshi more than five minutes to tear the mousie off the top of the spring and pull one of its ears off. Mummy stuck it back, of course - several times, in fact - but, as you know, Shimshi displays great Purr-severance whenever there are oppurrtunities for Demolition and Destruction, so it wasn't long before Our New Toy looked like this:

From then on, it was a downhill spiral for that poor mousie. Caspurr got his teeth and claws into it, ripped off its tail and then purroceeded to eat its fur!
Pretty soon, this was all that was left of the mousie:

I would say that mousie was well and truly dedded, wouldn't you?
Of course, Mummy has purr-omised to sew its ears and tail back on again, but We aren't exactly Holding Our Breath, because She also said She thinks these cheap, Chinese toys are dangerous for Kitties and maybe also for Humans, too. She says She won't buy them anymore.

Looks like We are going to have to make our own toys from now on, because the Good Stuff is Expensive!

Maybe Shimshi had the Right Idea about the Phone Cord (mol).....

My goodness, you took care of that mousie promptly! Kitty toys are easy to make. We're sure you mummy will come up with some great ones :)

Kate said...

Wow! That didn't take long!

That mousie didn't stand a chance!

MOL Yeah da cheap toys be cheap fur a reason. Altho' mommy sez they ain't so cheap really. It's hard to fiind a good toy to keep us kitties busy dat we can't destroy. But we don't think da fone cord is a good idea. Mommy gets all bent outta shape when we try to play wiff her lectronic gadgets. Have fun and have a pawsum week.

Luv ya'

Dezi and Lexi

Wow, you certainly deaded that mouse!
Maybe your mom can sew a rugged canvas toy and figure out a way to attach it to the springy pole.

Pooh and her Pooch said...

We agree that mouseie is totally dedded. Wow, we are guessing you didn't want that mouseie hanging around your place. Good job dedding it. Hugs and nose kisses

Hehe--that mousie never stood a chance!

Wow you did a great job on mousie, though I suspect your mum was right about being not so good quality. You cant beat good old fashioned games, try my stick game, it may be a bit hard on your peeps fingers but its almost free. purrs erin
