A Complete and Utter Failure :-(

As I sit here typing away I am watching the death throes of a dumb purchase made by stupid people-  LOL- unfortunately at least one of those stupid people would be me.... of course I am smart - but as with all doting pet owners - and spoilers, not so smart as to not fall for the latest and greatest toy your cat may have ever wanted (or couldn't care less about)

About two weeks ago Phil sent me a link to something called the "Cat's Meow"- and I watched the video and agreed that maybe our little darlings would enjoy this "act NOW and get two for the price of one" late night TV style gadget.

The new toy(s) arrived today- and took some assembly (I must have been having a TIA when I ordered the damned things- LOL) and I called Phil who was out and told him to bring home C sized batteries (each "machine" needed three!)

We assembled and powered, and put it on the floor to watch the hours of fun our cats would have chasing this "fake mouse/gecko" around under a little blanket... 

This sounds so pathetic as I am typing this I can barely see from laughing at how dumb it was! tears are streaming down my face as I watch my cat - right this minute- actual photo just taken-


you can see how much she loves playing with this new item (located on the floor behind her)


so roughly one hour after setting this device loose on the world, the three C sized batteries are getting slower and slower and the only animals that have spent a minute "playing" with this toy are the two humans that inhabit this household- LOL...

but I did notice when I came in the afternoon that the flowers were looking very nice in the yard so there is reason to celebrate regardless of a momentary lapse in intelligence...



I can't believe I fell for it- LOL- but we all have our areas of strength and our areas of weakness- LOL and pretty much everyone who knows me will tell you I am a sucker for furry animals- LOL

  1. Hahaha! That's always the way it goes! My cat's favorite toys are crumpled pieces of paper. So much for all of the "mouse" toys I bought him :)
