The Color Purple

Does purple make me look fat?

Today’s post is brought to you by the color purple.

My toys held captive.
Every once in a blue moon TW rotates my toys. “Out" with the old and in with the “new." “New” isn’t exactly accurate since they’re old. She thinks that if she hides my toys that when she brings them out, I’ll think they’re new. Kitty ain’t that dumb, ya heard. She hadn’t done it in forever but yesterday she decided it was time for a change.

Of course, she didn’t consult The Cat, who has been playing nicely with the toys that were out. Now I have a bunch of toys that I don’t look at. TW wants to know why I’ll play with one Bavarian [Valerian] cow but completely ignore the other one. They were bought at the same time and are exactly the same—or so she mistakenly thinks. I’m a cat and it’s my provocative prerogative.

And, yes, my toy box is a Pet Gear Traveler Roller Backpack that Pop wasted money on. Instead of carrying ME, it holds my toys hostage carries my toys.

You think it’s a coincidence that my silvervine fish and boink match my tissue paper? Yep, the woman who at the age of ten dressed in paisley pants and striped top now thinks she’s a color expert. Be very afraid. Maybe next year when she rotates again, my tissue and toys will complement each other cos I’m certainly not complimenting TW.

I really don’t want anything to do with this photo shoot, Woman.

How about your peeps: Do they rotate your toys? Do they color coordinate your toys with your tissue paper? What am I gonna do with TW?

Mom used to rotate our toys. Every morning she would gather up all the toys and put them in one bucket then get out another set from another bucket. Now that there are 8 of us, we dump all the buckets every time Mom picks up our toys. Nothing is color coordinated with tissue paper because she won't let us have tissue paper because Horus tries to eat it.

We don't rotate toys, now! The kittens are pretty hard on them and we get lots of new ones. MOL!

By the way, is it just coincidence that you look stunning on purple?

That toy-rotation tomfoolery makes me MOL too - do humans REALLY think we're that dumb? Ha!

Purple is my favorite color and I think you look great on top of it ;) I rotate my baby's toys. Mostly because there are a bajillion of them and I just can't handle having them all out at once lol. But, when we switch them out she does act like they are new and has lots of fun playing with them.

No toy rotation here CK. The staff is far too lazy. All mine are dumped, dumped I say in a crate and left to rot. Scandalous. By the way the colour purple sure suits you. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

You DO look stunning in purple, CK. It compliments you just beautifully.

I think every girl should have things stuffed under her bed, so I store Truffles toys under her lounger for the most part. She digs around under there until she finds what she wants :)

Hehehe! The last photo is like my Nelson does when I think to shoot photos of him!

You look purrfect sitting on royal purple! It really compliments your furs.

Mom doesn't rotate our toys. From time to time she picks them all up and puts them back in the basket. We dig a few the same everytime, but we also dig out some different ones everytime.

BOL!!! My pets are the same way. They prefer to play with certain things, and aren't too fond of change!

Oh, that purple! It looks good on you (and is Pia's favorite color!) but rotating toys?? We don't get it and in fact, we're going to forget we ever heard of this in case our mom gets any ideas! Purrs...

Tamago said...

We rotate some of our toys, too.
I don't think purple make you look fat. You look great on purple :-)

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Purple is the color of Royalty, CK! ;)

Mommy leaves all our toys in the toy rack for us to pick and choose on our own. HER job is to pick up AFTER we are done playing. MOL.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

My Human does Cod only knows WHAT wif my toys. She scatters a bunch and then it takes her FOREVER to notice that I have managed to bat all of them under things and can no longer reach them to play. So it can be WEEKS and I have no toys. Sometimes she will add some more or sometimes she'll move a chair or something and say, "Oh look, Spitty. Here are your toys" and expect me to come bat them out from under. Honestly, she's useless.

Brian said...

Dang, I do like the matching tissue paper idea CK! Will will need every color of tissue paper though!

The Swiss Cats said...

We don't rotate toys. Mum is able to wait until some of them are damaged or out of order before buying new ones : amazing, isn't it ? Purrs

I'd like to suggest a color test. Lay out 5 or 6 sheets of different color paper and see which ones are left at the end of the day...
No toy rotation here. Everything goes into the toy basket and occasionally my guys fish one or two out. Always the same one or two. Sweetie Pie, our foster kitten had a party everyday with all the unused neglected toys.

Kitties Blue said...

No rotation here. They all just go in a big basket, and we dig around until we find what we want. Mom picks them all up when Chris comes to clean, and is always surprised to see that we seem to pull different ones out each week. We think a stunning cat should have matching toys and tissue paper. We do not have any of the latter 'cause Astrid shreds it into itty bitty pieces. Mom will do the writing process challenge on Monday.

I'm terrible as I don't hardly ever play with toys even tho I have a basket full. M says I'm so hard to please. She does put some away and dig them out in a year or so, but I don't show any interest. Therefore, she's thinking that is a waste of her time. She keeps buying me new toys and hasn't hit a home run since the first Neiko Fly came into the house.

Mom just dumps all of our toys in the toy box and lets us pick anything we want to play with. Every once in awhile she finds we have toys scattered all over the house.

Flynn said...

Most of my toys are in the toy box but my favourites are by the cat tree. Mum puts 4 or 5 marinating in nip or silvervine for a week then gives them to me and puts 4 or 5 different ones marinating for the next week.
I think you look purrfect in purple. It's a very royal colour fit for a princess.

MOL Well at least yous lookin' good. And yous look weally purretty on dat purrple. Mommy keeps ow toys in ow toybox (basket) and leaves ow favowits and da ones weez been given by furiends wecently out so weez can play wiff them and hers can get fotos fur postys. So meez guesses she dusn't weally change out ow toys. Altho hers duz take out da old toys weez not play wiff at all, and donates them to a less furtunate kitty fwum time to time.

Luv ya'

We don't know if Jan coordinates our toys. They seem to come in all colors. Just before one of the dogs - currently Marcus - slobbers on it so we don't want it.

Life is SO unfair...

aw www....come on CK...give TW a break...no, no...I do NOT mean as in tripping her at night and causing her to actually 'break' a bone. She tries, she really does. And quite often, she does you ever so proud and that is why we all know you as "STUNNING KEISHA"
