Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Where To Take A Dedded Toy?


I like to make sure my schmousie toys are dedded…but I most certainly do NOT drag them around trying to decide where to nom on them…sheeeessshhh!

Gotcha my pretty schmousie! *rip, tear,kick*

Gotcha my pretty schmousie! *rip, tear,kick*

When I had that schmousie dedded, I walked away like any other cat. But not so The Kid Sage. She has one favorite toy, a wand toy with an itty bitty schmousie on it which she insists on carting off as though it is her ‘kill’ to take back and nom on.

Llittle schmousie...let's you and I have some quality time together

Llittle schmousie…let’s you and I have some quality time together

TKS seems to ignore the fact that usually is tripping over the wire that attaches to the wand. And just listen to her talking away to that poor little schmousie she is covering in her slobber…

TKS: “Where shall I take you? Maybe by the human foot wipe where I always take any food from my food dish I can’t quite get my mouth around.”

Are you edible or are you wipeable?

Are you edible or are you wipeable?

TKS: ” Nope, this doesn’t seem just right. Perhaps over to my feeding station as an MRE.”

Will you fit in my food dish?

Will you fit in my food dish?

TKS: “Still not just the place for us to be alone together. Maybe I can save you for later?”

*paw, paw...dig, scrape*

*paw, paw…dig, scrape*

TKS: ” MICES!! Oh, sorry little schmousie, no pun, no, no…truly. I would never make fun of you. Let’s go back to the beginning.”

We started here...*chomp*

We started here…*chomp*

TKS: “And then I gently cradle you in my mouth to carry you away to spend ‘quality’ time with me…sorry I had to have that little taste test before our journey to my kitchen…”

Maybe just a little taste before I take you away

Maybe just a little taste before I take you away

TKS: “This is getting to be a tough decision little schmousie…what to do with you…now that I have you all to myself…”

Who knew life held such difficult decisions?

Who knew life held such difficult decisions?

TKS: “What Mom L?? No, no…I most certainly DID NOT harm my schmousie. What? Well, yeah…its a teeny bit damp”

Is there a problem?

Is there a problem?

TKS: “No one understands our relationship little schmousie. It is so special. How can we have quality time together when everyone follows us around?”

We may never get to be alone together...sigh

We may never get to be alone together…sigh

TKS: “Let’s just sit here, together, and ponder our future.”

I will protect you from all others little schmousie

I will protect you from all others little schmousie

There you have it. TKS has a weird relationship with that little schmousie. Thankfully, I have never had nor ever will have such a weird relationship with some schmousie…right?

    I do the same thing as TKS with our wand toy ! Claire knows it, and she often stops holding the wand, so I can run in the house or even outdoor with the toy (and she has to come with me and take it back) ! Purrs, Pixie

  7. Truffle carries around her dedded toys, too. She usually brings them to bed with her at night and Mom Paula wakes up surrounded by toys.

  9. That’s Savvy’s “teddy bear” which is what the peeps call a toy like that. We still have Chizzy’s “teddy bear” toy. He loved that thing. And, no, I don’t walk around with my toys either.

  10. Thjat was a savage bitey if we ever see one (photo #1).

    Emma and Buster

  11. Well, Savvy, just think. If TKS is spending time dragging her dedded mousie all over the house, she won’t have time to bother you!

  12. TKS does have a lot of fun carrying her little mousie around.

  13. MOL! Newton always want to take the wand toy with him, too, Sage, but so far, no luck…

  14. Our young one, Einstein, takes our little mousie on a string all over with him too. He grabs on and will not let go fur anything. I think it must be a young kitty thing Savannah

    That is so cute that you have favorite toys.

  16. Glitter carries toys, especially mousies, around too! Leo has once or twice and so has Cashmere, but Glitter does it a lot! Funny how they all have their own habits!
    Love seeing your girls with yours!

  17. Two Frwnch Bulldogs on said:

    Hide the evidence!
    Lily & Edward

  18. MOL! I totally get your relationship with schmousie! Those dang humans and their flippin cameras, though! When will they ever learn?

  19. I sure had lots of fun watching the fun!

  20. Haha! Very funny!

  21. hmmmm… seems that schmousie is in a relationship with a rope and a stick…hope that ends well TKS :o)

  22. I think it’s cute TKS carries the wand toy around like a trophy. TOO CUTE! And dear Savvy, that little schmousie you dedded back when you first came to live with your Mom and Dad – well – it’s certainly showing signs of being WELL LOVED too!

    Hugs, Sammy

  23. Sometimes the deaded toys have the best flavors.

    Love and licks,

  24. MOL! I have to confess, I do the same thing as Sage with my favorite Neko Fly toy, and even if my human keeps holding onto the wand, I will run downstairs with it and she has no choice but to follow me!

  25. We have already mislaid two of the three new nip mousies Mummy bought Us last week. Even Mummy’s cleaning lady couldn’t find them, We have hidden our spoils so well. We think maybe they got vacuumed up by mistake. Or maybe they weren’t properly dedded and have gone into hiding (mol).

  26. Well TKS that was sure a work our..for you and poor( as the girls here call them..) la mouchie..haahaha and I bet he is soppy too ..tell mum L that shot with the difficult decisions quote is awesome! you look for all the world like a real dinky di as we say panther!! loves Fozziemum xxx

  27. MOL, I drag my deaded toys round too.

  28. I could actually hear TKS having this convo with her schmousie!!! A really funny story and very well written. I know kitties can talk now 😉

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
