Why do my humans give me catnip mice?
They smell good and all, don't get me wrong. But they don't look anything like mice. Mice aren't purple. Or blue. Or green. You get the picture. If you want to get me a present, buy me a -real- mouse sometime. Nothing says "I love you, kitty!" like my very own warm, furry, live mouse to play with.
Perhaps if I am a "good kitty", they will bring me a mouse. A real one.
Usually, when they bring me little toy mice, I just humor them by playing with the pseudomice for a little bit, and then conveniently "lose" it. Oops! Either that, or I chew the little felt tails off of them. Then they just have to wonder when they'll step in a pile of wet felt. It's almost as much fun as leaving a hairball right in front of the bedroom door at 2am!
Now -that's- entertainment.
