I was looking bored today so Mom brought out a toy I had not seen in months. My bungee birdie! So, I am having fun with that right now. Mom is watching to make sure I don't get tangled up in it. And she put a carpet underneath so I can have a softer landing for my airborne tricks. She is noticing that I don't jump as high as when I was younger. She says it is because I am a bit too chubby. Well she isn't as fleet of foot as she used to be and for the same reason, plus she is getting old. But anyhow, this toy was exactly what I needed to relieve my boredom. Squirrel naps all morning while I want attention. Then, I nap in the afternoon and Squirrel wants attention. Mom wishes we would play at the same time. Squirrel & I do play together in the evening.
Glad you got to have some FUN!! I LOVE toys like this too!! Luv, Snow
I have a bungee-ball hanging from the walnut tree in our backyard, and I just LOVE to play with it! But I don't play by myself... I make Dad come out and launch it for me to catch. Over and over and over again. BOL!!! I'm sure you could train your Mom to do that too!
sounds like LOTS of fun!!
Hi everyone! Yes, it was lots of fun.
I got tired so it is now put away, but Mom will take it out the next time I am bored.
Toys are great and we love to play. It's great to see an old favourite - your mum was clever to think what you would enjoy most! Bunjee Birdie sounds great. I wish we had one. If I get bored I don't care if Josie is asleep I just wake her up. Mum hopes I'll grow out of that one!! Purrs Toby
I had the same exact problem! So meowmy put me on a diet food that's the same as my food, just low cal. I'm not a picky eater so I love it but now I can do tricks again!
We used to have a mouse on a bungee cord, but meowmy decided not to get those anymore, cause our Angel sisfur Suki always tried to eat the cord...she thought that was way more fun than catching the mouse...
That's funny!! Kinda like me, I stalk mommy's hand when we play with the laser toy, instead of chasing the light!! MOL! Snow LOVES it, though!!
Glad you had some fun!
After a year of being a housecat,I too am accused of being "plump". I have a bungee ball,but I prefer chasing loose balls across the floor. It's a bit rainy this morning,so the kittens & I have "the wind up our tails" & we're playing chase up & down the hallway. The Dad Guy thinks it's funny to see a cat of my "size" trying to slow down from full speed on linoleum like a hockey player on ice......
Squirrel told me that they used to have carpet and it was way more fun to run on that than linoleum. Lots of grip. I see what she means when I play on Lobo's mat. You can make tight turns by hooking in a claw.
Mom never lets me play with my bungee birdie unless she is there to watch. Just in case I get tangled up in the cord.
And I'm not THAT chubby!
