The Kitties...

have discovered a FUN new game!

::TMI ALERT::TMI ALERT::TMI ALERT::TMI ALERT::TMI ALERT::

I use OB tampons. Hey, I grew up in Germany. They don't have tampons with applicators (or at least they didn't back in the 80's, who knows now?). Applicators scare me. They scare me so much so, in fact, that if I'm forced by emergency measures to use a tampon with applicator, I'll tear the applicator open and proceed as per usual with the tampon I find inside.

That being said, I have a small container that holds a multitude of said OB tampons in my bathroom. The bathroom that is the quarantine area for Bruiser, one of my kittens, who was neutered on Thursday and must remain sequestered until Monday in order for his stitches to heal. Imagine what a bored kitten can get up to in a bathroom. *shudder*

Now Pipsqueak, Bruiser's brother, is not pleased with this situation, neither is Bruiser, of course. They are used to being together and playing all day and all night, and have been spending hours at a time mewing piteously under the bathroom door at each other.

BUT WAIT...what are these intriguing cylindrical objects, wrapped in shiny plastic?!

TOYS!!! SHINY, BITE-SIZED TOYS FOR KITTENS!!!! MOM LOVES US!!!!!

Imagine my chagrin as I watched a tampon slowly roll underneath the bedroom door, across a couple feet of carpet, to fetch up against my foot. Yes, the incarcerated Bruiser was batting the tampons underneath the bathroom door into the hallway, where lonely, neglected Pipsqueak passed them on to me, whether I wanted them or not...

Demented kitties! At least they are using pristine, brand-new, never-been-used, still-in-their-original-wrapping tampons! Unlike my dogs...

*sigh*

Bwahahaha!

Cats are awesome. We once had a big ol' ball of fur named Smokey who'd nest in the 12-roll packs of toilet paper...by burrowing out all the rolls in the middle, leaving confetti/TP everywhere.

Mom got pissed because I laughed, so I had to try to USE a roll of that shredded confetti once. Very funny, Mom. Ha. Ha.

Your pets have a strange fixation on what constitutes "pet toys." Might I suggest a trip to the pet store for something less, er, shreddable?

Pet toys are a waste of time and money, in my experience. Unfortunately!

Hahaha!!! Well, that's much better than the dogs digging used tampons out of the trash...

I think cat toys are a waste of time and money. Dog toys: can't ever have enough of them. Mitzi's gotten her money's worth out of everything we've gotten for her. My sister keeps sending toys for the cat, which the cat scoffs at. We pass them on to Mitzi instead. :)

Just wait until your two trouble kittens grow up and become trouble cats who will learn to fish the tampons out of their box, regardless where you put it, and then bat them all around the house, usually leaving them where you will either step on them in the morning (which is surprisingly uncomfortable considering they're made from "soft, absorbent" materials) or where company will notice them on entering your home.

I use the same brand for the same reason, btw. Why in the hell does one even NEED applicatiors? I mean, it's not like they're hard to ... er ... apply.

Geez - and cats think dogs are gross...if the dogs only knew what was going on behind closed doors!

Our latests kitten is a sock thief - so much better than tampons. It is the dog who throw's little doggie fits when he does not get his way - digging in the trash and shredding kotex all over the house. Bad dog!
