As we prepare to start a new year, the weather is terrible. It is -20 with the wind! (-5 F). But to make matters worse, all the beautiful snow we had has mostly melted. So all that is left is patches of ice and frozen muddy ruts. Mom and Lobo aren't too happy about that. But us kitties are warm and comfortable in the house.
Where are our birdies? We have only had a few chickadees show up ever since Mom made our new bird feeder videos. Maybe they saw themselves on Youtube and got camera shy.
We got nothing for Christmas so we complained to Mom. She took one of her old sweat socks, put some catnip in it and said there you go. We were a bit miffed and left it where it landed. Later in the day, I got hold of it and found out it was a really fun toy. Once I had enough kitty spit on it to wet the sock through to the catnip, it was pawesome!!! But, it was about then that Squirrel snuck up on me and took it away from me. She can be a bully at times. We played with it back and forth for over an hour. I guess it was a pretty good Christmas idea. Mom promises to buy us some new fur mice soon.
Happy New Year to all of my friends.
Brrrrr! That sounds cold - I sure am happy you've got a fur coat to keep you warm!
Happy New Year to you my sweet little sis. Wishing much love and joy in the new year to you and your family.
Hugs & Love,
OMC that is cold!!! I like playing with socks too.
We have some of those 'nip-in-the-sock' toys, too. There used to be a lot more of them when our unfurbros had tiny feet! MOL!
That is a good way to recycle! And we can carry the stuff anywhere we want it!
That is furry cold weather you are having!
We are having rain and thunderstorms today!
What a mucky, muddy mess!
Happy New Year to you all!

Dad makes us sock toys out of socks from the Dollar Store! We could send you some if you like!
We have so many toys that Mom gets tired of picking them up when it comes time to sweep the floor. That is cool that your Dad does that. Do you still miss your squirrel toy Tigger?
Good to know that other kitties play with sock toys too. Right now, I am watching myself on TV as Mom copies over some of my videos.
