Fev-vers on Friday!

Kitties!
Sweet Pea here.
We got a package in the mail...it was Fezzant Fevvers! Mommy ordered some offa eBay to make us one of our most favoritest toys in the world...Fevvers-Onna-Stick.
Me and The Baby are checking out the fevvers and the work area.
There's Daddy in the background!
Mommy uses an old radio antenna (the collapsible kind) for the "stick". Daddy dipped both ends in liquid plastic to make a handle on one end and make the other end safe for us to bite.
This is the fevver/bitey end.


Mommy puts three fevvers on some tape and wraps then onto the stick.


Here I am inspecting the initial tape job.
After lots of tape wrapping (We LURVE to bite the tape) our new toy is ready to go!


I'm inspecting the final product.
Quality control is important.
So is speed. Mommy has to make these fast cuz we are impatient!
Looks good...properly taped, fevvers in good working order...



And here I am with the finished toy!
You can see the red plasticized handle.
OhMyCat!
I gotta go!
Mommy is swishing the fevver toy on the floor!

  7. What an excellent idea. You must have such fun with that.

    Tell your Mom that her tidy uncluttered kitchen counters put my Mom to shame. I guess she doesn't have to keep the decks cleared because I don't go up there and whap stuff off. Do you guys do that?

  8. What a great toy! Your humans are so creative - we wish we could say the same.

    P.S. our mom says she agrees with Simba about your kitchen counters!

  10. Our assistant is going right over to Ebay to check out the fevvers. That looks like such a super toy and we just have to have one, or two, or lots of those fevver toys. Your Mom is just so smart. Have a fantastic week end.

  19. WOW~!!! That is such a grand idea! Our beans get LOTS of fevver sup in the mountain. We'll have to ask our mom to make us some! When we get a good amount, we can send ya some TURKEY fevvers!

  20. Excellent snoopervision Sweet Pea!
    Your people have such great ideas for toys & such for you cats. Making your own fevver wand has to be way cheaper than buying the overpriced ones at pet stores.
    Our Dad golfs at a place called Pheasant Acres and he sees lots of pheasants there. Do you think he's ever thought to bring some fevvers home? No. Probably figgers his golfing buddies will laff at him.

  21. Hi to our delightful dozen...

    Happy Friday,
    Madi and Mom

  22. Annie here, for Felix:

    I just want you to know that you have an admirer in Me, Felix. I am a skinny, grumpy middle-aged Ornj Cat and I think you are just beautiful. We could make lots of crabby music together...I have a lot to complain about, too. Like 11 siblings, for a start.

    Felix, you sound like you could be my kind of cat. I don't know how you can stand to live with 11 siblings. The two of mine are bad enough. I mind my own business and Nicki is attacks me without provocation. I'm sick of him.

    Prove your sincerity and worthiness and we'll meow further.

    Just don't expect me to be sweetness and light, 'cause hey, that's not the kind of girl I am. Unless you're a human bearing turkey Temptations. Then...maybe.

  23. You are very, very lucky to have such fun and creative 'rents!
    Enjoy your feathers!

  24. Sweet Pea, you are so lucky you have such creative parents. Mine are duds when it comes to anything like this. Your fevvers look so fun to chase and chew. I hope you have lots of fun!

    And let me guess Sweetpea - your Mom HAS to keep the counters clean or you guys...do it for her????

  30. You kitties have pawsome folks! The toys our mom makes for us are along the lines of crumpled paper and paper footballs. Got room for three more kitties? We're small and you'd never know we were there. Seriously on that last bit.

  31. That is one cool fevver toy! Your mom and dad are furry smart to make those for you!

    PeeEss: Is that what kitchen counters are supposed to look like? We must have faulty counters here cause ours have stuff all over them.

  37. That's one cool feather toy you've got there, I'm so impressed you've got such a devoted mum and dad to make it so carefully for you. Archie crunches up feathers in our room under the bed while we're trying to sleep, loudly. xx
