Joy to the world! Christmas is almost here and so far all of the gifts under my tree (or at least stuffed in the closet so they don’t get ripped open early) are for Dexter and Manna. I don’t mind. Their joy is a gift to me. It is so fun to watch them sniff at catnip-filled packages!
I will make sure to get tons of photos of the cat opening their gifts (and probably even some video) to share with everyone. It should be a fun thing to watch! Dexter loves to open things – he has opened all kinds of food packages and even a package of toilet paper. I keep telling myself that he’s an artist and this is his deconstructionist phase. One day, everyone will want a Dexter original!
Earlier this week, Manna and Dexter received an early Christmas gift. We won a valerian kicker cat toy from Stunning Keisha’s blog. I was going to add it to the gifts I have for the cats, but I made a little mistake. Silly me, I left the kicker (still in its plastic packaging) on my desk and walked away. It was too pawsome to resist! Before I knew it, Dexter had that package open and he fell in love.
Manna is a total catnip addict, but Dexter is proving to be more picky about it. He will react to certain catnip toys and not others. It has to be a really strong catnip. Valerian, another plant that cats are attracted to, seems to be a little different. This was the first time I had tried valerian with my cats. Both cats found it irresistible!
My spoiled kitten, Dexter, claimed the valerian toy for himself. Manna has to play with it while Dexter is asleep or he’ll pounce her. It is really funny to see him so in love with a toy. Just look at the joy on his face in this week’s funny cat picture! If you need a second laugh, check out Manna’s Christmas Carol parody.
