4 Cheapskate Ways to Play With Your Cat

Standard

Our topics of conversation the past weeks have been about playing with your cat. There are four different kinds of play dates that describe how your cat likes to play. Your cat is friendly, lazy, bossy, or shy when it comes to the way they play. And, of course, they play with weird things rather than the wonderful new toy you found at the store. They’d rather play with the box! Would like to share some ideas from my friend, Colin Noel-Johnson, about cheap ways to play with your cat. Here’s Colin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tonight I’m going to reveal four lost or no cost ways to play with your cat… perfect for any cheapskate or a laugh, your choice.

1. Get an extra long shoelace, put it in your shoe skewed to one side. Next walk or run past your cat and continue through your home.
Note: While a low cost option, this may result in bodily harm to you depending on how strong your cat is.

2. With the same long shoelaces, tie your shoes in front of your cat.
Note: This option will not result in major bodily harm, however you may experience bleeding on your fingers.

3. Grow your hair long, your cat will just love it!
Note: This option is also portable. Safety glasses are recommended. If your cat has extra sharp claws you can also portray Vincent Van Gogh.

4. Last but not least, an empty box with a cheap cat toy tossed inside can never go wrong.

12 Reasons Your Cat Thinks That YOU’RE WEIRD!

Standard

I just finished going through the latest edition of a magazine that I received. I was laughing so hard at one of the features they had for the month and wanted to share this with you along with pictures. In order not to violate any copyright laws, the wording will be changed to protect the innocent. (Me!) Enjoy.

1. You don’t hang from anything!

Hang in There

Don’t you humans know that curtains are fun to hang from? Or anything else for that matter!

2. You don’t race around the house at odd hours.

The fun is finding out where you finally end up before you lie down to rest! It’s always a surprise.

3. You don’t sleep all day long.

Mission Get Out of Bed

Ruins the Day

There’s no sense in getting up if you don’t feel like it! We need our 15-16 hours of sleep. Humans spend too much  time and energy in worrying about everyday things. Just relax and be cool.

4. You don’t hack up hairballs or anything else.

I Don't Always Eat Spiders

Was That Your Shoe

Come on, what’s wrong with that. No big deal. If you have to get rid of something, you just do it. Which brings me to my next point. When you barf, you always have to do it in that big white bowl. Geez! You don’t barf on anything like chenille, silk, cashmere, or a sweater left on the floor. In fact, you don’t barf on ANYTHING good!

5. Some of you don’t raise chickens.

A Wild McNugget

Most of you don’t even pluck your own chickens or traffic in chickens in any way. Hummm, chicken sounds pretty good right now!

6. You don’t have cardboard box furniture.

7. You don’t stare at anything.

Fascinated by Nothing

What Are We Looking At

 Don’t you know that you have to keep staring because you might miss something!

8. You don’t play with packages that come in the mail.

Wrong Color

You don’t stand or sit on them. You don’t even squat in them. You don’t do anything except open them. What kind of weirdness is that?

9. You don’t use the couch as a play toy.

Spoil Sport

Don’t you know that’s what couches are for? As a side note, they’re great for clawing and sharpening your nails!

10. You don’t leave food on pillows or inside of shoes.

I Has a Car

11. You don’t understand the complexities of inside/outside.

I Was Looking Outside

12.  You don’t bite ankles.

Zombie Cats

But, zombie cats do bite ankles to get to the brains. You don’t bite your friend’s ankles or even your enemy’s ankles. Is that any way to play?

The magazine gave 48 reasons in all; I combined some of them. Didn’t have pictures for everything, so I chose the cutest ones I could find. Hope you enjoyed it!
