Gnawed Nip 'Nana

The cats received sturdy, catnip-filled toys last week.  Chili Bruce got the 'nana, Manny the green fishy, and Angel's was the cigar.  Great fun was had by all...

Claws and teefs!
 ...except the 'nana!  Chili Bruce broke it apart at the seam, and there was catnip all over the place.  I found some carpet thread, and made like Dr. Frankenstein.
Battered but resewn 'nana!
Manny didn't chew and bunny-kick like Chili Bruce; he kept flipping his toy in the air like a majorette, then chasing it into every nook and cranny in the house.
Manny kept throwing his nip fishy around
Angel enjoyed her nip toy, then washed up neatly afterward.

"Gotta look good!"
It was a joy to spend so much time with the kitties over the last week.  The Hubby and I are still using the parlor as Da Boyz room, when neither of us can devote 100% attention to them.  One look away, and someone is up near Angel making her upset.  But only hissing and air whappy paws; no real fighting or touching, and we feel that Angel is geting used to the two rambuctious and rude youngsters.  They appear to be curious about her, and since they wrestle and run, they figure she should do it too.  A mature ladycat like herself doesn't see it that way, of course!  We do site-swapping, and give brushies to all three with the same brush, to distribute a community cat smell.  It's been just over a month now.

Diclaimer: the toys were purchased by me, and I'm not endorsing anything!  Heck, a toy that breaks within hours is not terrific, but the other two toys are just fine so I'm giving the benefit of the doubt.


  1. Everyone is so cute. We're glad most of the toys held up well.

  2. Sounds like the toys were a hit.
    Chili is living up yo his name ;)
    Good to hear that all 3 sort of get along with you there. Maybe in time...
    They are all sweet kitties.

  5. I never heard of anyone ripping open a nip nanner before. I'm glad you could fix it.

  6. You must be one strong kitty to break open a nip nanner! Those things are tough! I've been known to sew up a toy or two myself :)

  7. Sounds like you are taking it slow with getting them to all get along, sounds like it is working.

  8. We love nip bananas but have never ripped one open! Nice work. PS, we also like the nip tomato/apple.

  10. Chili Bruce must really have some vishus toofs and claws to open up on of those nanners! We never heard of that happening. Thankfully it could be fixed.

  14. Just love your two new boyz. My son had a black cat who was so loving and very vocal. I loved having her around. How are your outdoor cats, Patty O'Malley and Sweetie. Haven't heard you mention them lately. Hope they are safe and keeping out of the cold and snow. Bess from Massachusetts
