FEATHERS! GET YOUR FEATHERS!


Item 1. After you saw me rock the peacock feathers in my video last week, many of you wanted your very own and I don't blame you. Nip and Bones used to carry them until their supply dried up. I've been getting mine at CatClaws.com. They're totally pawsome but if you rough-house like I do, they won't last long. They're sold in sets of 12 and are natural, steam cleaned and contain no dyes for the low price of $15.95 plus postage. Depending on how much TW rations them, a package lasts from 6 months to a year. TW did all her shopping for the cats before me at Cat Claws. My pink mauve hand-me-down perch is from there. Toys that come high recommended by Faith and Autumn are Claude the Mouse and Rowdy Rat. Both are refillable nip toys. They're the original home of the corrugated cardboard scratchers. You can also get peacock feathers at Amazon.com for $8.90 for a 12 pack or $15 for a 20 pack. They have a 20 pack of super long ones for $18. (Thanks to PumpkinPuddy for telling about these.) They sell the feather mostly for arts and crafts projects so you have to make certain the ones you order are natural and not dyed and are at least 30 inches long for use like wand toys. Now you have the info, so grab your humans plastic cards and start placing those orders! Operators are standing by!

Funny story about the Claude the Mouse toy. They used to make a large Claude the Mouse and TW ordered one for Chizzy. No one was home and the package didn't fit through the mail slot so the postman left it on the doorstep. When TW came home, she found Gertrude on the porch having a grand time bunnykicking large Claude. Gertie had ripped open the package herself because the nip was so intoxicating! TW didn't have the heart to take it away from her. Gertrude was a friendly stray who was soon to find a furever home with the upstair's neighbor.

Jaya and Shiva
Item 2. My good furrends and Purrime Ministerettes Shiva and Jaya totally ROCKED the Thinking of You Award I passed on to them! You need to go over and meet them and have yourself a few laughs. Their post is fun and done in their own unique style. They're two female rescue cats from across the pond with tons of catitude. I recommend their YouTube channel too. [They're waiting to hear from you, Spitty.] Shiva has a condition called feline cerebellar hypoplasia, which she taught me all about. Oh, did I mention that I was in their wedding pawty when they both tied the knot with @IndyKitty? He's a lucky mancat to have TWO lovely kitteh wives.

I remember when they got married. <3

I would love to have another peacock feather. I and admiral have a lot from Cat Claws but they sure hit you for shipping and handing. But no better toys and nip and you and I both have the Candy Bars. Great place for quality toys and nip.

xxoo

I have never tried these peacock feathers you speak of! Clearly I need to do some online shopping. I have actually memorized the girl's plastic info...so all I need is a solid internet connection and I'm golden. ha!

I can see from the video why your feathers have a limited life span! ; )

xo, Katie

We also have never had a peacock feather. When Mommie first gotted Sassy, she bought her a pink feather toy. One when Mommie was out of the room, Sassy climbed up the dresser and got the pink feather toy. And ate part of it. Lets just say Mommie was seeing pink in the litter box for days!

The mom got us some peacock feathers at Michael's. But they were kinda flimsy and didn't last long...or maybe we're just hard on them.

Question: These are To Be Used Under Supervision playthings, correct? *sigh* Another thing for Mommy to HIDE IN THE DRAWER....

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Uh-oh, C.K. Remember how efurryone was hissing at me about The List? Well now, it seems I have started an international incident with Finland. Can I come over there and hide? XOXOXO
