CK in Toyland


da Vine is divine.


Last summer we experienced The Attack of the Killer Moths in the condo. It was awful. The peeps killed them before I could eat them. This year I've only seen one and I've eaten the tasty little sucker. Last year, they feasted on the feathers and long furs on my toys. The peeps countered that attack by throwing out most of my toys. Of course, they didn't throw out anything of theirs! I could say something about that but I'm too polite. My furrends Pumpkinpuddy, A Tonk's Tail gang and Baby Patches, Chief Kit at NipandBones.com sent me very much appreciated care packages and I've won some other toys at Nipclub and on blogs. I thought I'd show you how my toy basket looks a year later. TW keeps toys in here that don't have feathers and ones I use most often. There's only one kicker with a feather in here and nothing better attack it except me!








TW holds my toys hostage keeps the toys I'm not currently using in this carrier thing sealed in a plastic bag to keep vermin out and the nip and vine smells in. She sez it's at capacity but, as you can plainly see, there's plenty of room. Her claim is that she likes to rotate my toys so I don't get tired of anything but she's just a toy gestapo who has to be in charge of everything.









Pop's bed is where I put my special toys. I have my heart from Buzzy, my iridescent smousy from Parker, Allie's snowman, 2 smousey toys from the Island Cats and the Packer's toy from Mario along with my peppermint stick which was the first toy Pop bought for me. It cost 1¢ and it's the best. You can see how flat it is cos I beat all the nip out of it. HAH!










Now that I've showed you my toys, I want to tell you about a special offer to add to your toy basket while helping one of our furrends aid a bunch of kitties. Andrea and the Celestial Kitties are holding a Winnie’s Wish Summer FUNdraiser. For a minimum donation of $15 ($18 for International furrends), you can get four kitty toys including a fish, smousy, bird and butterfly! You can request the toys be filled with nip, Silvervine or neither. I've requested the evil vine. The proceeds go to the Winnie’s Wish Rescue at Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats With Your Coffee). For complete details of the FUNdraiser, please visit the Celestial Kitties.

Check out these pretty toys (photo left). Bet you can't wait to kick, throw and maul them within an inch of their lives! I'm glad they come as a set cos I wouldn't be able to pick just one!



Can we play rockets, TW. I'm bored. I have nothing to play with.

I think you can never have enough toys, CK - or rockets!

Molly The Wally said...

We remember the scandal of the moths and your toys being chucked out. Glad your toy stash has been replenished Keisha. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Sparkle has it right. You can never have enough toys! We lost some toys recently when an anonymous mancat barfed on one of the toy baskets. Talk about inconsiderate.

This is a great fundraiser CK...Momz had to look up silvervine...you kitties have a lot of "mood enhancers" don't you? how come there's no nip for dogs I wonder...Momz recently did the same thing with my toys...she left ourt 4 (only 4!) of them and put the others away where I can't get them...not fair!

Katie Isabella said...

I think you and I have similar toy baskets! Heeee.

Quinn and Angel brandi said...

We wish we could contribute to Winnie's Wishes. The toys are really sweet. I kinda hope someone gives them to a shelter, but then there would be a riot in the shelter, wouldn't there, so maybe somekitty else should get them!

The Island Cats said...

You've amassed quite a collection of toys again, CK! But as the mom says to us...you can only play with them one at a time. Ehhhh...what does she know???

The Musings Of A Crazy Cat Lady said...

We didn't know that moths eat toys! That's horrible. You've got some pretty toys! Mama hides some of our toys in another room until we forget about them (so she thinks), and then tries to fool us by saying their new when she brings them out again.

Patty Woodland said...

They are very cool CK. Perhaps I will treat the Farm cats

NO, NO, No, nononononono! Now our mom is thinking of tossing all our toys and starting fresh!

Hmm, fresh toys without dried drool....that might not be so bad...

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We hope moths don't ever find OUR toys! We can't believe how *clean* your silvervine pillow is.

Katie and Glogirly said...

Waffles and I have discovered where the feather toys live. I planning a covert operation to send him in and rescue all the feathers. After which I'll promptly lure him into the closet and ...

wait, I don't know how to shut the door.

Pawsome toys, CK!!! And a wonderful cause. We love Winnie's Wish. xoox

meowmeowmans said...

That was so nightmarish when your old toys got thrown out, CK! ::shudders::

We're glad to see that your collection has been replenished, and with such nice toys.

Awesome toys for the FUNdraiser for Winnie's Wishes. We hope it's a huge success!

That looks like our toy basket. The more the merrier. We still have a moth eaten squirrel toy of Merlin's that 19 years old! He won't let me throw it out but we do rotate toys :-)

Brian said...

Thanks for the reminder about the Winnie's Wish toys...we hardly have anything to play with CK!

Mariodacatsmom said...

I'll have to get over there and get another set of toys for Mario. I think we took advantage of buying her toys several months ago, and he finally wore them out. So happy you are getting a full toy basket again CK.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Oh boy CK! I didn't realize how desperate you were for toys! Why, you have hardly anything! It's shocking how some humans keep their kitties so bored with nothing at all to play with...
Thank you so much for advertising the Summer FUNdraiser!!

Swami Zoe said...

Toys are fun, but chasing moths is more fun! Me-Ommmmm

ABBY said...

CK I think it's a rule or something, a cat can never have too many toys.

Kitties Blue said...

Hey C.K, it looks as if you and Brian were of like minds today with your posts. We would be very unhappy if any of our toys were held hostage. We suspect we would have to revolt. Have a great weekend. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Lisbeth, Astrid and Calista Jo

Austin Towers said...

I thought the moths WERE the toys!! But they don't smell of nip, though :( mol

Tamago said...

You got fabulous collection of toys! You are so cute on Pop's bed with your toys. Looks like you are having very good dream :-)

Ann Staub said...

Wow you sure are one lucky cat! I wonder if Honey D. would like to play with some cat toys. You know, I do the same thing as TW with the toys only for my human baby. She has all this stuff so I gotta put some up otherwise it would be covering the floor!

Kjelle Bus said...
