Maniac Monday!

Kitties!

Maui here.
Daddy went to WalMart and he bought something for us!
Hmmm, what's this?

A new ESS? 
Excellent!

Time for a test drive.
Yep, the stalking and leaping potential is superb.  Check.

The sisal is woven in a nice big berber pattern and has better-than-average gription. 
Double Check!

The height is right... 
I can balance with only one foot on the floor.  Check.

The dangly fevver toy in the upside-downy part is INTACT.
Super Duper Extra Check!

Sanitary carpet.
No barf stains or dried dribble.  Check.

In fact, the carpet smells like...like...like VALERIAN ROOT! 
Oh wow, man...checkaroonie ding dong!

Kitties, this is certainly a six-checker ESS. 
And as we felines know, six checks are the Epitome of Excellence in Cat Parlance.

Whew, I'm thirsty! 
All that work, those big words...and the cottonmouth from the Root.

Back to the new, approved, six-checker ESS. 
Ooooh!  It's good for wiping my lips, too...could this ESS be worthy of SEVEN checks? 
 You decide!


Happy Monday!

  21. You guys are lucky. Our people haven't bought us an ESS yet.

    ReplyDelete
  22. They have Ess's at WalMart????
    The people went there yesterday and only came back with jeans and undies!!! For themselves!!!
    This is an outrage!

    ReplyDelete
  23. All this Ess talk is driving us mad! What is LP's problem? We've told her over and over again that we want an Ess and we've been using no uncertain or polite terms! AND...still no Ess!! Where did you buy your hooman again? Obviously we got ours in the bargain bin....after a warehouse fire...

  25. That is a very smart Ess - we have a pompom on a spring as our toy on ours but if we wang it hard it flies across the room - it can catch you unawares if it hits you on the butt!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  38. We are so glad you luf your new ess. Our human thought Sissy would like one because she lufs her cardboard ess. She wouldn't have anything to do with it. Our human gave it to the no kill shelter she volunteers at. The kitties there really gave it a workout.

  39. I might be the only cat in the universe without an Ess!

    ReplyDelete
  40. We have one but we haven't played or napped on it in awhile. Maybe we will go play with it now.
    It looks like there's lots of cool toys on the floor. Lucky you!!

    ReplyDelete

  46. Wow Maui! You should get paid for all that hard work you do testing the new ESS. I must say you did a very thorough job. Since it has your apPURRoval, I think I'll look for one like that for my kitties, too. It looks larger than most. I know it smells good, but how does it taste?

    ReplyDelete
  47. WOW! That is the coolest lookin' ess we have ever seen! Love the colors!

    ReplyDelete
  48. that appears to DEFINITELY be "7 check" worthy!! For sure!

    "cottonmouth from the root" I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  49. We've never heard of any toy receiving 7 checks before...wow!

    ReplyDelete
  50. How long will it take you to break that one in, Maui??

Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
