Manly Monday - Jelly Bean Attack


I have been having so much fun! For a cat who doesn't play a lot with toys, I have really surprised Mom.

Let me go back a little and explain. Two weeks ago, jane and Alice of Casbah Kitten, had a contest, to work out a scrambled word. I was one of the correct guessers (it took me and Mom a while before we worked it out) and my name got picked as the winner! My prize was 3 of their super duper jelly bean toys.

Well, my prize arrived in the mail last Friday, and as soon as the mail was placed on the kitchen table, I jumped up there to sniff it. That is pretty unusual for me. But the catnip smell coming through the Casbah Kitten package and the mailing envelope must have immediately attracted me. So you have to know how good their nip is!

Mom put the envelope down on the floor for me to check out, and then took out the package of jelly beans. I was very interested all along. But when she unwrapped them, I went bonkers with delight. Tossing in the air, bunny picking, racing around - I have to tell you, these are such great toys. Mom tried hard to get some good pictures and some video, but I was moving too fast. But here are a couple at the beginning to give you an idea of my level of interest and to see how beautifully the jelly beans were packaged. Sorry some are a bit blurry.

Thank you SO much, jane and Alice. I really love my prize. And I also love the fact that you let me pick the colors. Oh, and they are having another scrambled word contest today!!

  7. What a fun prize Simba! Concats on winning! We love our jelly beans too - Isabella especially. She carries them around all the time and makes mommy or daddy throw them then she acts all crazy and puts it under the closet door. We think it's the special Kentucky grown nip that makes us all crazy!
