Frolicking Friday!


Sweet Pea here!
*pant pant*
I'm playing The Game with the All Time Favorite Toy (ATFT).

The Game requires Mommy on the other end of the ATFT.  She's pretty good about playing with us every evening, all we have to do is let her know we're ready to go!  Which we do by carousing around, causing "trouble" and by being "naughty".  These terms are grossly inaccurate, but whatever. 
Now that the carpet is gone The Game has gotten even better--I can run and slide, and make the Cube slide, too!
(Check out Mommy's outfit--another winner...*sigh*)

The ATFT is rather elaborate, consisting of some fezzant fevvers taped (LOTS of tape cuz it's fun to gnaw) onto the end of a dowel rod...
...with a rawhide shoelace tied onto the end.  VERY complicated.

There's a knot on the end of the lace so we can get good gription.
(Sylvester loves this game too and he really likes the knot because his front claws are gone...) 
I like to lurk on the cube and stalk the rawhide.

Got it!

Of course as soon as we get a grip Mommy tugs on the ATFT.   
This is what makes The Game so FUN!
You never know what that wily lace will do next.

The fevvers are unpredictable too. 
Look at 'em here, molesting my pantaloons!

Excuse me a second... 
*bappity bap grab CHOMP*

That was rather undignified. 
But that's what happens when the ATFT appears!

It turns us into kittens all over again. 
Now if you'll excuse me, I have a rawhide shoelace that needs killing!

Happy Fiday!

  1. Delightful fun!! You're lucky to have such a great mommy who plays every night!

  2. This day has started so well - what a post. We are all appreciating the white fur fest of your photos. And the ATFT looks wonderful. I wonder if Äiti could make us one.....

  3. Kill it. It should not tease you that way!

  4. Undignified, unshmignified! Go fur it and haf a blast!

  5. O hai! That looks like so much fun!! :)

  6. That's what most cats miss out on...someone to play at the other end. You have a good mommy.

  7. What a blast you had, Sweet Pea....errr....except for the pantaloon butt...ooopss...bit. phew! purrr....meow!

  8. That toy looks like loads of fun! Your human should market them - I say this only because my human is too lazy and inept to do it herself. (Techie she is, handy she is not.)

  9. You look like you are having a grand time!

  10. That looks like a great toy!! Also, I like your mom's outfit.

  11. you look so happy Sweet Pea

  12. I love how it looks like you're talking to the toy as you stalk it in the second picture! What a great toy, string and feathers, what more do you need??

  13. Someone is having fun. Love the photos. :)

  14. We love how you are always ready to bite! Sweet fangs.

  15. What a lovely game you are having there. Lots of different attachments to your toy are such a great idea :)xx

  16. Beautiful Sweet Pea!!! Me and Charlie are in AWE at your ATFT playing skills!! You are a true Champion!!! Yay!!! Take care

  17. You do fine work, Sweet Pea. And I very much like your Mommy's wardrobe!

  18. Ooooh, that ATFT looks really FUN. I have toys with fev-vers, but that leather string-thing really adds a dimension of playworthiness that I need in my life. I 'greez with Sparkle--your Mommeh should market these. Maybe she should quit that Water Job and devote herself to the design of AFCT* (*All-Time Favorite Cat Toys). She already has built in focus groups and beta testers. Just think: She could stay home and play with you all day long!!

  19. Sweet Pea, we can see you are having the time of your life :)
    You have your Mom well trained too!!! heehee

  20. Wooohoooo... glad to say you get to play by being naughty. The boys do that and HH always feels as if she's reinforcing "bad" behavior.... Not so. Right?

    Have a great day.

    pawhugs, Max

  21. wow - that is a lot of fun!!! You look very accomplished at that game!

  22. Thanks for the awesome demonstration, Sweet Pea!

    Your Mommy and Daddy sure know what kitties like (well, they have enough experience, that's fur sure)!

    Rawhide and fevvers -- simply irresistible!

  23. Sweet Pea we that looks like so much fun. That sounds like a great string to play with and a good sturdy one too. We love all the pictures you are one fun kitty to watch play. Hugs and nose kisses

  24. We have got to get one of those ATFTs over here!

  25. What I had no idea cubes could roll. I must try that soon,
    Hugs Madi

  26. That looks like a lot of fun, Sweet Pea! You know what happens when my mom and I play with toys like that? She lets me grab it and then lets me walk off with it--that's my favorite way to play! Just last night I took the wand into my tunnel!

  27. You mean you couldn't slide on the carpet????

  28. At last!!! I wondered where you were hiding Sweet Pea. What fun you are having with the ATFT and you could never be undignified. How dare those fevvers molest your beautiful pantaloons.

  29. You are so engaging and so dear. And what a beauty you are. xoxoxo I love seeing you playing.

  30. What great fun! And superb action pictures of you playing with the ATFT, Sweet Pea.

  31. What stands out, Sweet Pea, is that you have a most excellent Mom!

  32. Go Sweet Pea Go!!! It never stood a chance!

  33. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh! Sweet Pea, please will you share with me? Pretty please! That looks like another the best toy ever in the world!

    My human says to ask your mommy somebody if she getted the weeeeow that the human sent in something called an e-mail?

    Love and smooshies

  34. That looks like lots of fun!!!!

    Sweet Pea, Meowm just wants to scoop you up and squeeze you. She says you look very soft and floofy!

  35. Oh Sweet Pea that looks like so much fun!!!

    We used to love the cat dancer, but a certain someone (ARCHIE) started taking it too seriously and growling at the rest of us so now mum doesn't let us play with it hardly at all :-(

  36. That looks like heaps of fun. String game is my favorite game too. M says it's all I ever want to play.

  37. Looks like a lot fun is going on! Love the pictures especially the ones with their mouths open.

    Happy Weekend!

  38. Wow, that does look like awesome fun. Is there just ONE of those things at your house? Maybe Daddy could make another and you could have two humans working two at ONCE!

  39. Sweet Pea
    YOU look adorable chasing that rawhide!


  40. Maybe it's those outfits that makes your mommy so fun but your house is always way more entertaining than ours is!

  41. when you're done playing with your mommy send her to our house. our mama is lazy :(

    emma and buster

  42. Smart idea...lots of fun for the kitty and mum doesn't even have to move off the couch. (I have to get me one of those!!!)


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
