Phoebe is a very busy cat, and she demands a lot of attention. We have interactive toys she can play with on her own, but sometimes she simply must have human attention. I work from home, so I can play with her during the day, but I also have work deadlines; this does not please her. After she's gotten my attention by walking across my desk and we've played awhile, she sits inside her little blue house. It's like she's plotting her next move.

I love it when cats curl up so tidily and cover their face with a paw. And that paw is clutching so tightly that it looks like an extension of the face. Phoebe was recently in this position and I tried to lift her paw. She was having none of it and clutched her fuzzy face even more tightly.
I think she wanted me to go away. So I did.

If you read any of my posts here or on Catster, you know how much I love the "peeky tongue." You know what I mean -- when a cat has finished grooming himself and forgets to retract the little pink tongue. I almost DIED a few days ago when Cosmo exhibited "extended peeky tongue," lasting a full 2-3 minutes!

Cats love to play, and my cats' favorite kinds of toys are the ones that mimic real prey they would naturally hunt in the wild. When Tiger Teasers told me about their cat toys, I knew we had to try them. We liked them so much that they agreed to offer a giveaway to Catladyland readers! Isn't that nice?
The winner will receive a Cat Pack, which includes one Lion Lure and two Bunnies. Let me tell you a little bit about these toys and how my cats enjoyed them.
The Lion Lure is a 24" colorful wand-toy made of durable acrylic, wire, a small bell and either real or synthetic fur.
Cosmo went nuts for this toy when I dragged it along the ground. I really does move like a small rodent!
|Cosmo is mesmerized by the Lion Lure.|
The Bunnies are corks that are covered with either real or synthetic fur.
Phoebe was especially fond of this toy because she loves batting and chasing smaller-sized toys. Because they're so lightweight, they bounce and are easy for a cat to toss.

Phoebe has gorgeous facial features, but I'm especially enamored with her little "lips." They're mostly pink with some brown spots in places. I love it when I get a close-up gander. I could just stare at those "lips" for hours. Things are pretty exciting around my place, huh?

This kind of extended foot/stretched-toe combination is a hyper-powerful magnet to me. I can't stay away from its charms. First I admire it from afar, then I move in for a closer examination, and then -- only if I can't help myself (HA) -- I dare to touch it. Nirvana.
