a simple tip

Keep your current favorite toy safe by sleeping with it.


Ugh!  There goes that flashy thing again! 

Oliver's current favorite "toy" is a piece of cotton jersey fabric dyed orange.  I made this for a sample of the color, and it was on a counter in the kitchen--up high--safe from all cats, right?  Being the kind loving person I am, I decided to let him have it.  He loves it so! 
Tip post inspired by Isabella the beautiful at Beaded Tail.  HERE is one of her must valuable tips. 

This is for Cats on Tuesdays where you can see even more wonderful kitties. 


  1. Oliver is quite handsome, I love his little 'smudgies' on his nose and chin.

  2. It is so funny how the simplest things can make for the best toys!

  3. Oliver, that is a furry good tip to keep your favorite toys close! Your orange toy looks pawsome with your furs! You are such a handsome Mancat! I appreciate you mentioning me in your post too - thank you!
