Since Scooter passed away, I’ve been treating Oliver extra special. And he is basking in it. He seems to be doing well, and has become more outgoing and playful, oddly enough. So I thought a new toy would be a nice thing to give him. What better than a fuzzy toy mouse with a pouch you can dump fresh catnip into? Oliver goes absolutely bananas over catnip, rolling in it, licking it up, playing in it, drooling, and hugging the floor where the catnip is scattered. What a silly boy he is!
So I got my camcorder out before giving him this delightful new toy. As you’ll see, he went crazy for it! Funny though Oliver may be, it’s Simon the beagle who really makes me laugh in this video. He must have sensed that Oliver was overly excited, because as Simon comes to me across the room, he becomes rather anxious about having to pass Oliver to get to me. It makes me laugh. I hope you get a laugh out of it too.
And, like any self-respecting cat, he now completely ignores this toy. Ah, cats. 🙂
