Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

Even more reasons to love Etsy

Having become rather tired of standing on mass-produced catnip mice in bare feet (those little bells on the end of their tails really hurt), I turned to Etsy in an idle moment for hand-made alternatives.

Which is how Bertie came to be playing with this rather wonderful catnip-stuffed great white shark.

For more equally silly, but equally endearing, cat toys, visit this Etsy seller's shop.

That Spanakopita would last my meezer about 1 hour before it was totally consumed - I kid you not!

Ah, yes. But we all know Oscar as a very ... special ... relationship with his toys, don't we? ;-)

Buster seems quite happy playing with frogs and spiders.

Hollie turns her nose up at cat toys.
Instead she plays with the plastic rings that hold the lids onto plastic milk cartons.

Treacle and Pudding each have a hand-knitted multi-coloured catnip-stuffed sausage with tassles on. Nice and soft underfoot and they love them to bits. If you've never seen a cat rolling around the floor attempting to disembowel a sausage with its hind claws, you've missed a real treat!

I don't believe they can be bought on t'internet - although I'm willing to be proven wrong - but shouldn't be beyond the wit of yer average knit to make one.

Yup - still in love. Unfortunately my venerable beasty can't manage cat nip anymore. Even a spate of purring will have her conked out for the next few hours. But she used to go so insane for it that it was rather dangerous to be in the vicinity.
