Lucky's Babies

Meet Thumper.

This is Lucky's favorite toy.

Yes, it has catnip in it. Think of a kong for a dog and that's what Thumper is, except all soft and fuzzy filled with catnip. 

Don't judge her just because she carries Thumper around like it is her baby or judge me as I have a brand spanking new Thumper in a drawer just in case something happens to this one. 

I mean seriously. The nip is legal. The nip is encouraged by her vet.


The nip is gooood. 

Thumper used to come to bed with us every night.

Lucky used to sleep with me every night too but lately she has taken to the chaise lounge in the den.

I can count on being woken up between 3:24 AM and 4:16 AM daily.  This is when she brings Thumper to the bed.  She's all excited and is ready to play.  Saying no is not an option.  I could close the bedroom door at night but I only do so when company is over.   

We have taught one another how to play fetch.  It is quite delightful and makes those early morning play sessions bearable.   

I'm glad her Auntie Kari picked her up a teddy bear toy we call Pookie one night we were at the pet store getting her a kitty condo aka scratching post/nesting thing.

Pookie was the original and how I knew to look for Thumper. 

Pookie gets his fair share of abuse love too but Thumper is her go to baby.  I believe it has do with the ears being easier for her to carry in her mouth than Pookie's big head. 

I'd love to show you a picture of Thumper these days, as she is worse for wear, but as I type this, Lucky is showing her baby she is the boss.  She's been playing non stop for about one hour this morning. 

I put fresh nip in the back of both babies last night so it makes sense she would be in it to win it this morning. 

Who knew a one year old kitteh would like a stuffed tiny toy better than a string or a ball to play with?  Not me that is for sure. 

God bless her little catnip enhanced fur ball self. 

Peace, Love, Laughter and Soul Y'all.
