Guess they made the "nice" list

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 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.

That is so much fun!!! My tabby baby, Thomas Jefferson loves cat nip as well. I have to keep it hidden sealed in two plastic bags.

I am glad you all had a wonderful Christmas.

Henry is sitting on my lap looking at pictures of Stella, Gomez and Edgar Poe. He says I am in big trouble because he did not get a new toy this year. i will go out tomorrow and find him some catnip to tide him over. He has a new "cousin". Laurie adopted a dog today. Her name is Lilly and she is about 1 1/2 years old. She is low to the grond and all white-Spiff will probably think he has a new sister! TAlk to you soon

Your cats look like they are really enjoying their new toys! Our 17-year-old cat that usually runs and hides has decided that she wants to become a pet recently. She begs for treats just like Maggie, our Cocker Spaniel.
Your quilts are beautiful! See you soon.

Your cats are so cute. I need a brown tabby in my life. I have 2 orange ones and they are great cats but I really love the browns.
