Ok, so we are hoping that this will post - I am saving frequently in case of overheating. First, I have to say Barney is firmly in the terrible twos of kittenhood. I have more bites and scratches then I can tell you. Trying to type this is nearly impossible because he is so hyper right now. I know he will grow out of it - all the rest did - but right now he is driving me nuts! When is is sweet he is very sweet but he is the most hyperactive cat I have ever seen. He is currently in time out in an attempt to calm him down (once he is overstimulated the only thing to stop him is to put him in your lap under a blanket- he will meow and Brad will let him out but I know he just needs to calm down and usually keep him there.)
Anyway, the post is supposed to be about the new toys we got! We have ordered a bunch of kitty toys because we are going to be doing Paw it Forward (we are doing it with Mr. Grumpster Wilfred III right now) and I wanted to get stuff from some of the kitty bloggers. Today our order from The Casbah Kitten came. We got the fat goldfish for our kitties, and there was also one of the jelly beans in there (not sure if it was supposed to be or not but it has to stay now because it is covered in cat spit.) I have to say that although the fish was popular, the jellybean is Kirzons very favorite toy - not since his fishy about 10 years ago has he had a toy he seemed to love so much. He would get really mad when anyone went near it (he is older, so he is resting now because playing takes a lot out of him, again, he is old) and growl a bit. And he would walk away, but it would call him back to play. I wish I had a picture of that but the look on his face was as if it had him in a trance when he would walk away. So my next purchase from them is going to be a double order of the jelly beans - they are small, so I thought Barney would like it, but he didn't even really get a chance with it - you will see the pictures that it looks like he is going for it but Krizon put that to a stop really quick.
So I have to say, The Casbah Kitten makes great cat toys. I have also ordered from two of our other favorites, Mouchois (Melvin's mom makes those) and SuppliesJust4Pets.com, which is run by Baby Patches and her mom. When those get here we will let you know what we think - we got some different stuff this time but we are sure it will all be great.
Of course, now Mr. Crazypants (which is Barney's new nickname) is sleeping - thank goodness! Maybe I can post this with minimal problems (other than the blue screen of death - I can feel how hot this is getting so I better go - plus I need to heat up the risotto I made last night for dinner - leftovers).
Enjoy the pictures (I hope)!
ETA: I forgot to mention that there are a couple pictures of Barney with the tissue from the package - he went for that before the goldfish. I had to take it away because I didn't want him to eat it.
