My Toy Basket

Mom retrieved a basket from the depths of the closet and put quite a few of my toys in it so that it will be easier to vacuum.  I decided that was a good thing because I am  usually standing in it getting out many of my toys each day.

I got my allowance Sunday and now, I have 6 green papers in my piggy bank.  Mom gave me my allowance even though I wasn't a terribly good girl.  I was an O.K. girl.  An example: I played the mini blinds the night before last.  My performance was thus far unmatched by prior performances.  This last one was complete with an encore.  My brother bean is here as of last evening and stayed as he has an appointment to keep here in town--- and he caved and just left both window's blinds up.  The thing to do is get into his pj's elsewhere and then go into his bedroom so no one sees from outside.  I am a demanding girl cat.

Here is a picture of my toy basket.  XOXO  It's the very one Admiral used and is even the one she was in for her header photo on her blog.  Some of her furs are still in it.  She used to sleep in it but I made it my toy place.

  1. Katie we know you love to play the blinds but maybe your Mom needs the odd nap during the night so she can earn your pocket money the next day.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. Looks like you've got plenty of room fur more stuff in your basket, too. That's what we like about it. Well, that and it's an heirloom from the Admiral. Purrfect. xoxo

  3. I have my human trained that as soon as I jump on the window sill in the morning, she opens the blinds for me. BTW, make sure your human cleans your toy basket regularly. TW didn't and my basket got overrun by moths, who feasted on my toys. The result being that TW had to throw everything in it out. I am now a kitty with few toys.

  4. Either Gracie & Millie are very kind or they do not realize that they can play the mini-blinds. :-) Realistically, though, only one window ever provides good access to the mini-blinds. I'll bet that the Admiral gave your Mom the hint to use the basket for your toys.

  5. So great that you gave your humans such a concert with the mini blinds. We like your toy basket and think it is great fun that you stand in it with your toys. We don't care for toys enough to do something like that, so you are clearly and extra special kitty (which we already knew!).

  16. What a cheeky girl you are, Katie! Mommy used to put our toys in a basket too. But when we got the cat tree, she stuffed all the toys in the attached condo to encourage us to climb in.

  17. It looks to me like that basket could use a few more toys in it!

  18. Do you think you need some extra toys? Our Shadow is too much of an "old man" to play anymore.:(

  19. That is a very nice basket with a great history. Now you just need more toys to fill it up!

  23. Hee an allowance even when you are only OK. Our Moms are the same even when on my not best behavior I still sometimes get treats just because I'm cute. That is a very treasured basket that you made into your toy basket.

  25. We think you may have been in a rock group in your before this adoption life Katie -you know , like the drummer in the band...
    Which explains your need to play the blinds...
    Maybe you should do your practicing during the day though when the hoomans are awake :)

  26. That is a good idea to keep your toys in Admiral's basket. Our cat tree has a mancave in the bottom but we don't use it, so our toys live in there.

  27. Agree with Trish. We need a video of the maestro in action !!!!

  33. Katie, we would love to see your mini-blind concert! We bet it's quite a show!!

  34. My O loves to curl up in baskets that are too tiny for him.

  35. Your allowance is your Cod-given right, Katie. Your Mommy cant go around putting conditions on it, willy nilly. If she doesn't want you to play the blinds, then she should get curtains instead.

    See how simple that is?

    I am glad a little of the Admiral's furs linger in your basket. She chose well when she picked you for your Mom.

  36. Beautiful Katie Isabella!! You are a good girl queen kitty! Yay for getting your allowance! Awwww it's so sweet that you are sharing angel Admiral's basket and making it your own! Take care
