The Ball in the Toy Goes Round and Round ♩♫

WAFFLES:  *looks both ways* I don't see the Boss, do you? 



WAFFLES:  I'm just going to give this ball a little whap. She'll never know.

KATIE:  Right behind you, Waffles.



WAFFLES:  I was just admiring your spinny-ball toy, Boss. 



KATIE:  Yeah, I think you were doing a little more than admiring, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  I didn't touch it, Boss. I swear.



KATIE:  Then why is there orange fur on the ball? 



WAFFLES:  I don't see any orange fur. 



KATIE:  Somedays all I see is orange.


About Today's Photos
Glogirly got on a cleaning and organization kick this past weekend. Long story short, she unearthed countless cat toys that have gone missing over the years, including a very special one. Katie's turbo ball scratcher, a.k.a the spinny-ball toy. You could say it's almost an antique, but don't tell Katie that. It was one of her very first toys from when she was a tiny kitten. 

She LOVED it. Even as a little kitten-tot she could get that ball speeding around the track in a blur.

When Glogirly discovered the long lost toy buried deep beneath the guest bed, she pulled it out and set it on the floor. Waffles of course was right on top of it, checking it out and teaching himself how to play. 

When Katie heard the sound of the ball something amazing happened. Something that literally has never happened before.

Katie came running and leaped into the action. She took command of the toy while Waffles just sat back all dazed and confused. What had just happened? Usually timid when it comes to toys, and certainly not a gamer who enjoys playing with her orange housemate, Katie engaged not only with the toy but with Waffles too. For a few minutes they were actually playing together. 

AND, we have photographic proof. 

Either we're nearing the apocalypse or we should all go out and buy lottery tickets.

  12. There must be something in the air. We have a turbo tracker like this and it just sat there for years unplayed with. Until recently. Now me and Ernie play with it all the time...though never together. We find it to be a one-cat toy. ~Wally

  17. Cover all your bases and buy some lottery tickets. ;D Glad to see Katie's still into the turbo ball scratcher. My black cat, Maya, *loved* the turbo ball scratcher as a kitten, too, but she lost interest as an adult. It was hilarious to watch her play with it, so I lost a great source of entertainment when she abandoned it.

  18. The peeps got me one of those when I first moved here. It wasn’t a big hit and got passed on to the shelter.
