hehehe i told u the box was huge...i just used all the bubble wrap and the filling to make sure it didnt bop around. I figured ure kitties would like the box best too :D:laughing:


The toys I sent are basically the same as my boys' favourite toys. Springs are big here...and the rainbow mouse too, they chew on it alot - I think its good for teethies :thumbs up lol Bunduks favourite are the kitty hoots products...the one with all the writing on theback of the card.

No worries with the toys under fridges and stuff. We have a ritual here a couple of times a day. I have a long steel dowel I use for retrieving stuff from under things. As soon as I pick it up I have 5 very interested kitties waiting anxiously by the machines/fridge/stove/etc to see what shows up from underneath! :crazy:
I took the bed out to the catuary. The inside guys have so much now. I figured it was the outside guys who could use the bed and a little "extra" spoiling. :cloud9: Thanks again. I really am flabbergasted!! :grouphug:

Oh yeah, Tinka is the one in the first pic of the bed. She is only six months old so she has lots of time to fill it if I decide to bring it back in. Mittens was the next one in. He is still only 9 months and is now 11 pounds!

I kept the box, peanuts and bubblewrap so they can play with it again some time. Not spoiled at all!! Any time you want to "borrow" some you can. :D

Awwww, that's so nice Onster! I love that little bed, where'd you get it?

And who's the kitty with the gorgeous markings in the second last pic?

That's Dayle Stacer. She is also in the 6th pic. You can see her markings better in it. She is a very pretty girl. Hubby says her fur is like velvet. He keeps saying she would make a great pair of gloves. :frustrated: :rolleyes:

awwwwwwwwww onster that is soooooooooo mce of you :)

It was very sweet of Onster to send the bed, toys and treats!! She is the best! :cloud9: I keep saying that we have the best people on this site!! :lovestruck:

Yep, love it!! Except it went to my guys outside. Hopefully Onster will come back in and tell us. I have looked before too. I guess they are only available in her area. :shrug: They sure are a hit here! I have to go hunt them down from under the appliances.

:laughing::laughing: Onnie and Bunduk were in my room when I was packing it - let me tell you I have injuries from trying to keep my boys away from the peanuts!! LOL

I forgot to comment last time about gorgeous kitty too. What unique markings!!!

Stacer, the bed is from Egypt. I bought it in Alexandria but you can get them all over. They are made by the bedouins (like the natives) of the Siwa Oasis in the Western desert of Egypt. Lotsa palm trees and the date-palm fronds are used to weave baskets, plates, mats and other items. Also famous for jewelry.


Can see some crafts here http://images.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3101/2629265112_02b6fe088d.jpg&imgrefurl=http://flickr.com/photos/12288823%40N07/2629265112&usg=__JtrVAZiuFobTg9l1edN6uhkKP6c=&h=768&w=1024&sz=195&hl=en&start=1&um=1&tbnid=pb8sPGweKWjN5M:&tbnh=113&tbnw=150&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dsiwa%2Bcrafts%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26cl ient%3Dfirefox-a%26channel%3Ds%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DN

The toys in the first picture are from Winston, Sylvie, krdahmer, my daughter and me. Nope, my guys aren't spoiled at all!! Now they have toys from Onster to join them. :thumbs up

Bubble wrap and peanut Nirvana! Treats!! : Toys!! And can't forget the box! Happy kitties!! Onster, you're such a good kitty buddy!

She sure is! :grouphug: I told hubby he couldn't have the box today when he went on his garbage run to the dump. It's going to provide hours of playtime for the kitties yet!

As soon as I pick it up I have 5 very interested kitties waiting anxiously by the machines/fridge/stove/etc to see what shows up from underneath! :crazy:

I used to use the metal handle of the flyswatter, & mine were always more interested in playing with that first then whatever came out from under the fridge/stove :laughing:

So funny all of them in the peanuts & bubble wrap :laughing:

14+ your furbabies are soooo cute! I love the markings on the butt of the cat hanging into the bottom left corner of the box! Just beautiful! Was that one a stray?

I didn't know it was ok to let cats play with bubble wrap or peanuts. Gee I'm such a bad Mommy, I always take that stuff away from them cause I'm afraid they'll eat it.




The toys I sent are basically the same as my boys' favourite toys. Springs are big here...and the rainbow mouse too, they chew on it alot - I think its good for teethies :thumbs up lol Bunduks favourite are the kitty hoots products...the one with all the writing on theback of the card.



springs? are they plastic springs or spring springs?

Gee i lead such a sheltered life. Spring time I'm going to get my son to take me to Timmins! Only another 5 months to go. :laughing:

14+ your furbabies are soooo cute! I love the markings on the butt of the cat hanging into the bottom left corner of the box! Just beautiful! Was that one a stray?

Tundra - Most of my kitties have been born around this area from four moms. All of the moms have now been trapped and fixed except for one. I have not seen her in months. :sad: I think the kitty you are asking about it Tiny Tim. His momma had him and his brother and sister in my greenhouse. I got to know the kitties and brought them in the house. The day after I managed to get mom too. Mom is now a friendly feral to me. I pick her up and cuddle with her every day. She still runs away from everyone else.

I didn't know it was ok to let cats play with bubble wrap or peanuts. Gee I'm such a bad Mommy, I always take that stuff away from them cause I'm afraid they'll eat it.

I watch closely when they are playing with this stuff. They only get it when I am able to watch them play. First sign of them trying to eat it it is taken away. So far I haven't had to do that. :thumbs up



springs? are they plastic springs or spring springs?

The springs are plastic coated. Very neat. Mittens absolutely LOVES them!!! He manages to lose them every day. I have to hunt them out from under the stove and washing machine and every other spot he can hide them. The other kitties never get a chance to play with them cause he's always got them!

Gee i lead such a sheltered life. Spring time I'm going to get my son to take me to Timmins! Only another 5 months to go. :laughing:

Yep, you need to go buy toys!! :D

Be careful with those springs eh... Fagan got one lodged between his teeth once, really freaked him out! I can only let them play with those supervised now. (he was yeowling and pooping himself under my bed when it got stuck... pretty scary for us both!)

onster
January 12th, 2009, 11:40 AM
OMG really Kr??

I remember that story but for some reason I didnt htink it was those springs!

I just leave them all over the place, but luckily my cats dont chew them, they just whack them around.

ancientgirl
January 12th, 2009, 11:45 AM
Something similar happened to Oksana when she was a kitten. Not with a spring like that, but with one of those coil toys that have the small coil and then something poofy at the end. She got her little nails stuck in them on two separate occasions and was so scared, I decided to just throw the thing away. Now I never buy anything with a coil like that.

I've had these kind before too but never thought about them getting their teeth caught in them. Thanks for the warning Kr!

Thanks for the warning, I will have to watch them when I bring home new toys.

14+ yeah I need to go buy new toys, but I don't travel up here anymore in winter...it can be very scary. So I'll have to wait until April when most of the winter storms are over. I'll have lots of time to make a list! LOL

Your kitties sure are bautiful! You are such a wonderful person for taking in all those kittens and looking after all those strays! :grouphug:

Thanks for the warning about the springs kr. So far so good. I usually keep an eye on them when they are playing. Mittens doesn't chew them. Mylee hasn't paid any attention to them since the first time (when I snapped the pic) and the other kitties don't get a chance to play with them. They seem to like the little mices.

Tundra - I am entirely selfish. I don't want to share the kitties with anyone. That's why I still have most of them. :rolleyes::D

I am the same as 14+,my house is not big,so wherever they are playing,I am there.
Thank's for the warning though Dahmer,glad Fagan was ok:cat:
