Tape-toy Trashing Thursday

Yesterday, we felines were the most active and energetic creatures in the house. Äiti spent the day sofa-surfing. To be fair she has been active most days but yesterday she simply stopped and read books, and watched very dull television. It was all we could do to persuade her to shake her arm to amuse us with our favourite packing-tape toy. Stran pleaded, looking to the heavens for help. 
He pleaded with great eagerness in his eye.
And finally the string waved around and the mighty hunter caught his prey.
 And of course he obliges with bunny kicks and a fluffy tummy photo.
We have received great feedback about these packing tape toys, as we sent some out with our Christmas parcels.  They are remarkably simple to make, and great fun. We shall try to persuade Äiti to do a post on how to make them.

We love ours and Mommy makes us work hard for it!

Stran looks very much like a kitten in these adorable pics.

Oh my dear furiends! It is still New Years where we are, so we wish you the VERY HAPPIEST YEAR ever! You look like you had a lovely party ;-)


(You need not worry AT ALL, not AT ALL, about Ruska's attachment to the cube. There are no secret orders for him emanating from the silky walls. None at all. Just move along now.)

Oooo we gotta hear about how to make these! If Stran loves them, I bet we will...

Anything Stran loves, we will love!
But mostly, we LOVE our Stran!

We know of course that your Äiti is quite incapable of resisting Stran!

Purrs,

The toy looks like great fun; we hope Aiti will do a post with instructions. :-)

Although if it involves packing tape, it might be too much for our human, who ends up with a balled mess of tape when she uses it.

Ihana leikkihetki!
