Catnip bubbles!

I have found an incredibly cool kitten toy.. catnip bubbles :) They were a little expensive - considering I got them at Wal-Mart, but they are quite the attention grabber with the kittens. They don't have great coherence, but the kittens can't resist sniffing them. They didn't know what to make of them for the first 10 or 20 blows.. then they started getting brave enough to actually touch them. and since they popped when they were breathed on, they were still quite stunned. after about five minutes they were swatting at them with their paws. They weren't quite understanding what they were, but they sure did like trying to figure it out. I blew some again this morning, they still loved it.

I bought home a cat bed from the shelter on Tuesday. the kittens found a grapevine wreath and threw that on the floor and were cuddling into it, so when I saw one at the shelter I asked if I could take it. the kittens LOVE it. Scooter likes bringing her toys in it and playing with it there. Melvin just likes laying in it. Mom was kinda interested in it as well. I also brought home some new toys. One was a green felt fish on a string. I held it up and the room got very very quiet as the four of them all sat under the fish trying to figure out how to get it. I lowered it a little and we spent the next half hour batting it around. I eventually tied it to the doorway of the cage, and that was a big hit. SO much so they broke the string *rolls eyes* I haven't had one stringed toy have string sturdy enough to survive the cats they were intended for. Someone really should do something about it cause most of the time I find the string in the litter box, and I don't mean put there by playful kittens.

I talked to the shelter about mom. they want to see her cause there was a round of ringworm at the shelter. I so don't think its that (which btw is fungal, not an actual worm) I just think she's bored and is grooming her hair right off herself.

*searching ebay for cat condos* I so want one for the kitties.. anyone got one they aren't using any more?
