Playtime is very important for us cats, that is why today I am going to review an article about the top pet toys of 2008. The article is called, "Pet Connection Pros Pick Top Pet Products for 2008." The number one toy this year, picked by Dr. Marty Becker himself, is a CAT TOY! Yes, it is the Fling-ama-String! The Fling-ama-string was also the Cat Fancy Editor's Choice Award winner, so you know this must be a good toy.

We cats may not have money, but our humans have money and they are under our control! I will be having my Bosslady order me one of these ASAP!

Until I can review the product myself, I want to talk about the responsibility of having toys. Having toys is fun, but it also means that we must take care of our toys.

Here are some of my most favorite toys:

I must make sure that all of my toys stay in good condition, and that they are always clean and happy. These are three of the most important responsibilities of owning toys.

Here I am making sure that Mr. Snail is doing okay

"Well, how do you feel Snail?"

"I feel very well thank you, Cecil!"

It is good to know that I am able to keep my toys happy. Snail can be somewhat of a trouble maker, sometimes he picks on Mr. Penguin so I have to pay him special attention.

Another important responsibility in owning toys is to make sure they know how to defend themselves. Sometimes other cats or even woofies will want to play with your toys. I do not find this acceptable. I do not like to share my toys because they are mine mine mine mine.

Here I am teaching Mr. Lion how to make a paw-fist:

He is a very good learner. Anybody in the cat family is pretty smart and can pick up on things quickly.

I do not think that violence is a good answer, but if someone is trying to steal your toys then it is a good answer. Trust me, teach your toys to defend themselves, because if you are cat napping (another important responsibility), they will need to know how!

In fact, I think it is about time for a catnap right now. Responsibilities are very important and I would not want to neglect this one.

You are very right, Cecil! Taking good care of your toys is an important responsibility. I have never seen that Fling-ama-String before, but it looks very fun. I might need to start saving up my allowance for one.

One thing I do not get, it what is the point of having toys if the must stay in the toybox. They are so much more fun under the bed!

Hmm... I tend to eat my favorite toys...


hi Cecil

This is my first visit ... it is so nice to meet you and you do have some great toys and you make a terrific point. Take care of your toys...Both my sisfur, Boo and I take very good care of our toys, but our brofurs are too hard of them and tear them up. They need to do better.

Thanks for visiting us! We agree taking care of your toys is very important! We have a great basket to keep our toys in so they don't get stepped on by beans and squished. We can take out what we want when ever we want! ~Queen Snickers and Empress

You have good toys Cecil. You Bosslady sure is under your control.. hehe. I have a lot of those reserved for my 4 brats when they are older. Now they are not sure how to differentiate between a soft toy and a chew on :P

You are so cute with your toys Cecil. That new toy looks very interesting. I will have to check it out. The last pic of you sleeping is so adorable! And I liked reading about your penguin friend. Oh, you were so tiny! I'm glad your mommie was a guardian angel for you. Have fun with your toys!
Hugs and Purrs,

I agree. If we take care of our toys, it shows reaponsibility and the beans will buy us more! I can't wait to hear your review on the fling-ama-string.
