Typical Kids…

No matter how many toys you buy them…

… they always want to play with the same one at the same time.

Ain’t it da troot, Marissa Bracke.

    I think my fur kids feel their toys taste better when they are pre-spittled. Chopper (frenchie) will bark to make Boo (boston terrier) run for the door then sneaks over and steals her bone!

  2. but WAIT I thought the rule was, that they’ll only play with the BOX or the BAG in / with WHICH the gift was wrapped ??

  3. That’s true for cats anyway. There are 10 cat toys on the floor of my house that my cats don’t even look at anymore. But if I leave a box or a paper bag unattended for more than 30 second there will be a cat in it an another trying to get in on top of the first one and two looking to see if they can in on the fun. 😆

  4. Both is true ….both my kitties will want to play in the box it came in at the same time.

  5. The one on the ottoman looks like the RCA dog.

  6. The bow on the package I got from my SSOO (‘significant-something-or-other’ – he gives _excellent_ presents, BTW!) fell off as I came through my door.

    The next thing I knew, it was across the living room, having instantly become Dusty’s favorite kitty-soccer-ball…

    Bonus points for spotting the Dismbodied Leg in both pics!

  8. Alice Shortcake says:

    Disembodied. DISEMBODIED.

  9. existentialism 101, Alice 🙂

    also zombies 101

  10. You can see that the room (and probably the entire house) is set up for the comfort and pleasure of the critters. As it should be. 🙂

  11. *sounds like *SOMEBODY* ought to begin planning which colors will be prominent at a wedding ceremony…….*

    btw, serenpoly? I basically just did that to ring your bell.
    However there just *MIGHT* be more to the whole “he gives excellent gifts” bit, than you’re assuming…. on HIS end, ennyhow???

    *crossing fingaires that occ. there really is still lovely genuine lurve these days…*

    Also? Dusty sounds like quite a savvy kittaye 🙂

  12. I agree–EXACTLY like Nipper!

  13. I have to move the empty box from the couch before I can lay down now… 🙂

    But don’t you see? Tug-of-war is no fun played alone!

  16. The prezzie wasn’t very expensive, nor ‘just what i wanted’, but proved that he pays attention and knows me pretty well. I’ll take it – and him, for sure.

    Dusty comes from a long line of sports-kitties (her two uncles were Kitty Olympics champions in Speedbumbs, also known as ‘Trip the Human’) and soccer has always been her game.

  17. well-punctuated musically, emmberrann!! 🙂

  18. Both my cats have their own bowl and when I feed them, I open a can and each get a few spoonfuls of the same food. Yet, instead of eating his from his own dish, Ponyboy would rather stare at Scout until she’s done and then eat her leftovers. I have no idea why.

  19. My two pups, each have their own water bowls. And yet, they insist on drinking from one. It’s kind of funny watching two heads trying to squeeeeeeeze into the small space. LOL

    Also, that pic is a representation of what goes on in my living room EVERY NIGHT! Except… one is 15.5 lbs and the other end pulling is only 5.5 lbs… 5.5 lbs wins most of the time. ROFL

  20. So true!! I saw my friend’s doggies do this the other day. In the end, the big doggie got distracted by something shiny and the little doggie took off with the toy.
