    I feel like “expensive cat ski lodge” should be a much smaller slice of that pie.

    Cats are just children wearing fur. That’s why they like the box more than the toys.

    Dangerous wire twisty ties is the best option. Such potential for doom.

    This week of game show prizes is especially, wonderfully bizarre for me, because last Sunday my mother emailed me with a YouTube link to her appearances on a game show with Monty Hall from 1987, which I hadn’t seen before!♥ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtHApT4qKMQ&list=PLJvreagKI95pMRoSBbc3jVsa6ulLpr4Pt&index=52

    The Wheel of Stuff is a cat toy in itself! My Sophie was the only one of my cats who played with the ball-in-the-circular-track thinking, and she carefully batted it and let it roll until it stopped, so I called it “Sophie Roulette”.♥

    One time Blossom was having herself a blast in the laundry room. When I went to investigate, it turned out she’d found a small screw and was just having the time of her life!

    What goes up must come down

    Spinning wheel got to go ’round

    If you don’t land on trouble

    It’s a cryin’ sin

    Ride a robot vacuum

    Let the spinning wheel spin

    You got no yarn, no styrofoam

    Buzzy Mouse – out on loan

    Playin’ with danger and you

    You never learn

    Ride a robot vacuum

    Let the spinning wheel turn

    Did you win some twisty ties

    On Pucky’s wheel of fun cat stuff

    Would you mind a catnip find?

    Just let it shine within your mind

    And show you the colors that are real

    Ski lodge is waiting just for you

    Spinning wheel spinning true

    Drop all your safe toys and push them aside

    Win a piece of garbage on the spinning wheel ride

    Ha!

    Meimei (my avatar) was the queen of the twist ties. We had those long ones for trash bags and her favorite game was to bring them to me to throw, over and over. I used to put a loop in one end for aerodynamics. Long after she died, I was finding looped twist ties in hiding places. Treasure of the Pirate Queen. I still have them.

    This is so true to real cat life! Burton on the TinyKittens YouTube stream is surrounded by all sorts of toys but spent ages yesterday playing with what looked like a small square of paper. He was so engrossed and at one point stood up on his hind legs and gave three little leaps of grrr before pouncing again on the helpless piece of rubbish. It was very sweet and funny.

    Today I love (1) toe beans! In first panel, (2) how happy Elvis is, (3) Burt’s show biz style. But is anyone else real concerned about “glass dome with a bell in it”??? And who puts a glass dome over a bell? And why?

    For Loaner Cat, it’s the plastic ring off the milk jugs. She’ll play with those for hours on end. Push them around, pick them up, which surprises me because they’re just flat enough that I can’t ever get them off the floor, and carry them everywhere. She loves those things. And stink bugs. We have to be ever watchful of stink bugs and take them away as quickly as possible. If she irritates them too much, the house reeks for hours…

    Dot once came walking across the bed dragging a pair of pliers by the handle. Took them to the window sill and sat on them purring her little head off.

    I needed something else on the window sill and when I tried to get it, she swiped at me.

    Me: “Stop that. Stop that. I don’t want the pliers, I just want the pen. Will you just – you can have the pliers!”

    Wife: “She probably the only cat in the whole country who owns her own pair of pliers.”

    Cats will adopt the durndest things as toys.

    Slightly off topic: I ordered a Christmas stocking for the cats to share. I left it on the table and a few minutes later, Smudge was carrying it off. I gave each of the cats a toy and the stocking is, I hope, now out of reach. This morning, I caught Smudge trotting around with a potato. (Sigh…)

    And that is why ALL my garbage cans have lids: My compost can, my recycle can, my kitchen can and both bathroom cans. All with lids that must be lifted; tried the spinning kind, it just trapped the animal inside.

    Actually – I highly recommend pipe cleaners (longer ones). They have all the appeal of the dangerous twisty ties with 90% less danger (they do have sharp little ends that I make sure to fold over so they don’t cut themselves, but they are far less likely to eat them).

    Ah yes, twist ties. Haven’t met a cat yet that hasn’t tried to play with those at least once, regardless of whether its advised or not.

    Does anything come with a wire twisty-tie anymore?

    Bread has that rectanglular plastic with the diagonal cut to the middle hole. When I buy fruits in the market, I usually get the bag and just tie off the end. I do tend to buy pre-cut and washed veggies in bags – easier than doing it at home.

    Still, can’t fault Monte-Puck – the host with the most .

    We keep the twist-ties out of reach in our junk drawer, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found chewed up Q-tips in odd places around the house. They fish them out of the bathroom trash… Also I think we probably have close to 50 “jingle balls” in the house though I could only tell you where 3-4 of them are right now!

    Message from Georgia: ““Et tu, Burt?”I have some bad news and good news on my fifth book “Behind the Scenes with Burt.” The bad news: Supply chains are delayed everywhere (as we all know), and it will affect the release date of “Behind the Scenes with Burt.” The good news: Only by one month! I consider that very fortunate, considering how delayed some items are right now.The great news: “Behind the Scenes with Burt” will now be released on March 15th, 2022—that’s right, on the IDES OF MARCH! Huzzah, what is up my fellow Latin and history nerds! So,… toga themed release fun right? Of course! You can pre-order your copy here: https://smile.amazon.com/…/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_navT_a… or anywhere books are sold! It goes out into the world on the Ides of March and that feels kinda exciting, just saying that!“Behind the Scenes with Burt”, available everywhere on the Ides of March! Heck yissss, watch your back Julius Elvis! (…oh no, I took the joke too far”

    You know, I’m pretty sure I’ve actually seen stores sell a cat toy that was nothing more than twist ties. And they were charging like ten bucks for a bag of five of the things! Forget the fact that their a potential chocking hazard for a moment (just a moment). All I can recall more first thought on that was why would anyone buy something like that for their cats when they could get it off a loaf of bread if they don’t really care about the cats. My second thought was that we’d never let the cats play with twist ties anyway.

    Our Sally will occasionally play with the carefully and lovingly acquired “kitty kick stix”…but her favorite toy when she’s all feisty is a plain yellow pencil. She prefers a #2.
