Mommy made us a new lure for the All Time Favorite Toy (ATFT)!
(ATFT = dowel rod with a rawhide strip tied to one end. We have some extremely high-tech toys...)
We loved the red ribbon lure that was attached to the ATFT, but it was getting raggedy from our saber-toof attacks and razor-edged claws, and Mommy was worried about us swallowing ribbon pieces and tying up our innards in knots. And red yak.
She gave it some thought, and got a paper grocery bag, the paper cutter, and tape. She cut the bag into thin strips, folded them in half, and taped them by the fold. Rocket engineering, it was not!
Anyway, she threw the old red ribbon lure in the trash and tied the new one on to the ATFT.
Kitties, the paper ribbon lure is even better than the red ribbon one!
The rustly noise brings us running from every corner and bed in the house to play.
We can bite and chew it to our heart's content--and Mommy doesn't worry. Because paper goes Right Through.
(But not quite as rough as cardboard, heh heh.)
Mommy made a second lure for us that isn't tied to the rawhide, it lives on the floor so we can kill it whenever the mood strikes.
Which is often!
Very funny, Mommy.
