When I was a kid, I loved the cat.
It was a toy.
I played with it.
I tried to get it to do all kinds of tricks.
I used to get a lot of toys in my house, and I’d give it to my sister and say, “Come on, put that in here, cat.
You can do this.
Go on, take this and go to town!”
My mom and sister had a big collection of cat toys.
And I’d get a little toy and put it in my bag, and then I’d walk back home and say “Mom, this toy just got stolen.”
That’s how much my cat loved my life.
Now, with the advent of the internet and the proliferation of smartphones and other devices, I feel like I’m a little more isolated.
And my cat is just as lonely as I am.
So, my favorite cat accessories for the holidays, I decided to get my own!
I’ve been a cat fan my whole life, and even when I was younger, I would buy a cat toy for myself for the Christmas season.
The first thing I bought was a little stuffed bunny with a heart.
I think it was the first time I ever bought a cat plush.
And when I finally did, it was amazing!
It was like the biggest toy ever.
And it was my first plush cat!
So, I bought that one.
And then, my friends would buy them, and they’d give them to me as gifts.
And, my cat liked the plush, too.
So I bought another one.
The next year, I started buying the toys.
I bought a lot.
And that was my cat toy of the year.
And in 2018, I got my first cat plush!
It had a heart and a heart shaped like a bunny.
And at that time, it wasn’t just a cat.
The word “pony” was just starting to be popular.
So when I saw that, I just couldn’t wait to get one of my own.
I was like, “This is going to be a big deal!”
So I got one, and now I’m going to keep it.
But I’m also trying to be extra careful.
I put a sticker on it that says “Please do not leave your cat unattended.”
I put the sticker on the back of the toy, so you can see it from up close.
And so, every time I take it out of the box, I put my sticker on there.
I’m constantly reminding myself that if something happens to the toy or it gets stolen, I’ll be the first one to know.
And if it’s stolen, it’ll get returned, so it’s not like it’s going to get lost.
And there’s no reason to get rid of it.
You never know what could happen.
And also, there’s a good chance it’ll be stolen again.
So if you’re buying a cat toys, always look for a tag on it, like, a tag that says, “Please Do Not Leave Your Cat Alone.”
Or you might want to keep one for yourself.
I keep a tag so I can look at it if someone gets a hold of it and they want to take it.
And the next thing I know, it’s gone.
So the cat will have the biggest, coolest toy of all.
I always try to be smart about it.
So this year, instead of buying a toy and putting it in the trash, I actually got rid of the litter box.
I made a list of the items that I want to get to and put them in the recycle bin.
So that was one of the first things I did.
And this year it was a big one.
I took my cat out to the park and took her out to play.
I kept track of what she did each day and put that up on the list.
And one day, I was playing with her in the backyard, and my friend came by and started talking to her.
I asked, “Do you have any toys?”
She said, “No, I have nothing.
I have a cat.”
So I went, “What’s wrong with you?”
I told her, “You’re a cat, aren’t you?”
She went, [laughs] “Yeah.”
So, then I started putting things in the recycling bin.
And next thing you know, there she was in the bin, with all her toys, toys and stuff.
And she was so happy.
She was like this little puppy with a big heart, and her toys were perfect.
She had a little pink cat toy, a purple cat toy with a yellow heart, a pink and purple cat plush, and a little red cat toy.
And her favorite toy was the pink and yellow cat plush with the heart and the heart shaped cat.
I remember the first day we took her to the vet, I couldn’t get the cat to eat.
So we just took her
