The Paw of Doom


Daddy bought some pipe cleaners.

Happy Monday!!

XX  Johnny, Slayer of Pipe Cleaners  XX

Pee Ess:  Our new bloggie friends at PURRY CUTE are planning a New Year's Eve Pawty, and we don't think a lot of kitties know about it...we bet they would be thrilled to have you stop by!


  1. That's one of the most favorite toys around here. Easy to carry in the mouth. Love the paw.

  2. TW was looking to buy pipe cleaners but she couldn't find any around here. Can you believe that? Guess I'll have to settle for bread ties.

  3. our pipes are clean, they rarely get dirty so we don't have any need to pipe cleaners. Maybe I'll go and dirty a few pipes and then the kitties can give them a try!

    Thanks for the paws up about the pawty, we are all in!!

  4. We've never played with one of those before. You guys always have the bestest toys ever! We're glad the instigator isn't afraid of those vishus claws!

  5. Pipe cleaners are one of my favorite toys!!! My human has been hiding them - she needs to bring them out!

  6. Ohh, that looks like fun! Better than the Mom's hand, but less tasty we're sure. We'll pop over to the pawty. Thanks for tellin us!

  7. Would you believe my Human has had the NERVE to invite INTROODURS over here tomorrow night? As if!!! *I* would rather go to the Pawty @ Purry Cute. Sigh.

    Where does a Human get a pipe cleaner these days?

  8. pipe cleaners are THE best toys :D Johny, our mom was all a-squee over your pawsies! we love playing games under the door too :D

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  9. Oh! Pipe Cleaners! me sure misses playing with them!
    Since the hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon came, we can't has any...
    Can mes come and play with yours?

  10. Johnny play gently now, New year's Eve in A&E wouldn't be welcome!

  11. That pipe cleaner intruder looks like it would be fun to play with. We have never seen one before but we're gonna ask mama if she can find one.

  12. Happy New Year to you all at the katnip lounge. Glad our list made you laugh.

    Wishing you a good year ahead for 2013.

  13. He, I thought it was a mouse tail...

  15. Oh my Johnny, Slayer of Pipe Cleaners, you really did a number there!

    Mommy is a big time worry wort and probably won't let me have a pipe cleaner because she thinks the wirey guts by hurt me. Mommi thinks that I survived chewing on the Xmas Tree so I should be fine, plus I've played with bread ties before.

    hmmm... maybe an intruder will come by when the Mommies are busy with arts and crafts one day....

    ~Brooch Czarina

  16. Oops silly paws... that should be...
    "wirey guts might hurt me." not "wirey guts by hurt me." Don't know what I was thinking there!

    ~Brooch Czarina

  17. Great toy! We'll get our human to get us some.

    Happy, Happy New Year!
    We Hope For Your Fulfillment, Contentment, Peace And More A Brighter, Better New Year Than You've Ever Had Before!

  18. Great style, Johnny!

  22. Pipe cleaners are the bestest! Johnny, you killed it!!

  23. That looks like so much fun! We have never had a pipe cleaner to play with. We are apparently underprivileged cats and will speak to the humans immediately about this oversight.

  24. Be careful. That song ends up with a hundred pipe cleaners wrapped around your paw while a whole busload of onlookers cheers on the attack.

  25. Loved the photo's of you at play. A simple pipe cleaner and such pleasure...Happy New Year and hope 2013 is good to you all.. Hugs GJ xx
