Rocky's got mail

The postman brought a package for Rocky this week...
...from the beautiful feline ladies over at the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee.

What could be inside Rocky?
"I don't know, but you're going to have to open it for me.
I don't have opposable thumbs and you yell at me when I shred things."
Back before Christmas, I placed an order for some new sparkle balls for him. They must have got caught up in customs because they usually arrive much quicker. I'd actually forgotten I'd ordered them
"Sparkly!!!"
They are Rocky's favourite toy. He'll chase them endlessly around the house.
"Sparkle!Sparkle!Sparkle!Sparkle!Sparkle!"
He also has a tendency to pick them up and take off with them. Which means they get lost easy - he's only got a few left in his toy box, so it was time to get some more.

Maybe now he'll be tired enough to sleep through the night and stop yodeling at 4 a.m....

Aw! Rocky seems very, very pleased! My Nala also has a favourite toy she loves to pick up and carry everywhere (and it's actually a toy I crocheted myself)! Isn't it fun to see your furry baby have fun?

Wha???????????? You mean you don't enjoy 4 AM yodels??????

I knew I loved Rocky. We both have a "thing" for the sparkle!

Haven't tried sparkles for my girls, both of them do love the pretend mice though.

I love Rocky's expressions in these photos. Is he as soft and squishable as he looks? Yodeling at 4am? Really? Okay you get all my sympathy allotments today :)

Isn't he the cutest!
I love those sparkle toys too but my indoor kitties ignore them. They only like cheapo plastic balls. The outdoor kitties like the pretend mice but they disappear too fast to keep replacing them. Somewhere out in the woods there must be a pile of them.

Maybe I should get some of those for Pumba so he'll stop his howling in the middle of the night, lol.

Rocky has mail? Now that's pretty cool. And it's sparkling balls... wowza! He looks pretty happy about it all! Hey Rocky,have fun batting and throwing them around!

Aw! Somewhere there's a stash of cat toys in the house! I know there is in mine...I keep retrieving toys from the basement. And Biscuit likes to stash his in the bathroom off the master bath. Cookie has never had a lair...he kills the toy, picks it up to drag it back to his lair....and then looks confused. No lair.

He's so cute! I'm assuming like our yodeling cat - Rocky doesn't dip his sparkle balls in the water dish too?!?!
