Wednesday evening, the kittehs' Aunt Kari came to visit for a while, and she brought with her a handcrafted Christmas prezzie for the beasties... TiGrr decided he didn't want to wait until Christmas to open it -- he took it off the arm of the chair and gnawed open the wrapper, but by the time I got my camera out, he was buzzed and gone upstairs again.
Meanwhile, Maus discovered holiday joy...
She gave it quite a workout, until it started losing some of its catnip-laden beans...
which Peanut discovered. And killed spectacularly.
Which thoroughly intimidated Maus, who ran upstairs and hid.
So Peanut got the toy at last.
I wouldn't try to take it from her, if I were you.
For more beasties, be sure to visit Modulator's Friday Ark #170, and, on Sunday evening, stop by the Carnival of the Cats, to be hosted this week by ML and Missy, at Cat Blogosphere.
