Yes, the cats ended up on the "nice" and not the "naughty" list this year (of course they always get gifts for Christmas and random other days during the year). In my goal to support everything local, organic, fair trade and/or small businesses as much as possible. I found this great website http://www.purrfectplay.com/ that makes cat and dog toys here in the USA from dye-free, chemical-free, fair trade, organic materials. Exactly the kind of company I want to support.
Here are the toys: one catnip mouse and a bunch of catnip baby carrots. Well I had to hid the box before Xmas and on Xmas Eve, we celebrated with presents.
Gomez loves paper and he had fun running, sliding and hiding under paper. All the cats enjoyed boxes to jump in and out of and hiding places to attack from.
Gomez says "this toy is mine mine mine!!!!"
Stella may have had a little too much catnip.
Edgar Poe is trying to look cool and aloof but doesn't realize he has paper on him.
Where is Morph? On my lap helping me take photos and staying away from the general craziness. He'll wait until later and play with all the toys when the others are sleeping. Endless fun here at Chez Crazy Cat Lady.
