Toy Tuesday

Wanna guess what this is? A torture basin, you say? That's pretty close! It was actually our toy box. Mommy added those nasty plastic spikes to the bottom after SomeCat poo'd in it (yup, with our toys in it!). Then Mommy felt bad because she would see us walk on the edge of the basin to try to fish out our toys so she removed the spikes. Then SomeCat came back and this time, PEE'd in it!
Guess we should say Thank You to SomeCat because now we have this pawsome Toy Rack!
Meow-Me : Rude Mommy says my tummy is as round as Pooh's. Well, POO to Mommy!
Felix : All our toys are arranged according to type which makes selection easy
Coco : Good choice, Felix! I haven't seen this feather in a long time!
Meow-Me : We stay in a separate area from Cosmo, Ling, Boomer and Tutu because Coco behaves like a semi-feral and Felix doesn't get along with Tutu. Me? I'm a sweetheart but that brat of a Tutu keeps growling at me. We're much happier in our own place (our room connects to the Catio - we get access to the Catio in the daytime and the Brats get it at night and early morning). We have the same things the Brats have (love, treats, toys...) but Mommy has a tough time taking our pictures because we tend to sit at Mommy's feet when she comes to our room
Ling : This is OUR playroom! See our own Toy Rack?
Ling : I suppose we won't get a Toy Rack upgrade since it's pretty much impossible for SomeCat to do a poo or pee in the basins now
Boomer : I heard it's the FIFA World Cup now so I know exactly what I want!
Boomer wins the coin toss and off he goes!
Boomer looks to be off to a good start then PRRREEPPPP! The referee's whistle goes off!
Oh noes! It looks like Cosmo has to be stretcher off after Boomer dived in front of him
Boomer reacts after being given the yellow card!
Cosmo's replacement, Tutu is in and she starts off slow...
And Boomer takes the opportunity to swipe the ball from her
There was a mild confusion as Tutu faced TWO crinkleballs...
but gets her bearings quickly and she's off!
Tutu has mad dribbling skills and rushes past Boomer
Tutu continues to charge towards the goal while Boomer looks on helplessly
And G O A L L L L L L L !!!!
Tutu SCORES!
Tutu : 1
Boomer : 0
The crowd goes wild and the cheers are deafening! Tutu can't help but puff up with pride!
And Boomer can only watch in dismay as Tutu does her victory dance

Yay Tutu, GOAL !!!!! Well done. Boomer you had better get your act together. Good to see all of you. Take care.

Annie Bear said...

This is awesome! First, great toy bins and it's so nice to see Meow-Me, Felix and Coco having such a fun time. They look so cute. Meow-Me looks wonderful!

Love the soccer match with Tutu and Boomer. Yes, Boomer was dismayed a few times but can't say I blame him.

Brilliant narration! As exciting as any World Cup match! Love the new toy rack and most of all, love the cats!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We thought this was the best World Cup Final ever.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Kay said...

The torture basin looks scary!! Looks like the furries, especially tutu & boomer are enjoying football fever too..

Patty Woodland said...

Some cat was very naughty!
Yay for TuTu who I most ardently hope wasn't some cat!

Madi and Mom said...

Fantastic action shots AGAIN!!! Bravo!! We love your new toy bin set up. Exactly what you need to get to things quickly
Hugs madi your bfff

Terri said...

We're sad to hear you kitties aren't one big happy family :(

I can see why "SomeCat" did his business in the original toybox. We think your toy bins are pawsome!

Loved the picture of Tutu all fluffed up :)

Oui Oui said...

What a character Tutu is! We just love seeing her with Boomer. A divided house is no fun, ours is too. While Oui Oui gets along with everyone, MMM doesn't like Carl, and she and Julie are like oil and water, but deadlier. So everyone has scheduled times in different parts of the house too. If someone poos or pees in something we know it's not any of the girls.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

*claps* for TuTu!!! Oh we love you so! Boomer we think you did a fantastic job but well what can I say but TuTu? We love your new toy racks we think that is such a great idea!

Photo Cache said...

Fuzzy Tales said...

Your toy rack is awesome! I'm not showing this to the boys, they'll want one of their own. :-)

It seems you have a workable solution to the cat dynamics, which is good. More effort for you, I'm sure. I learned with Annie and Nicki (ugh, what a dynamic that was) that any future cats must either be siblings or be bonded -- or I adopted only one!

And of course I love the photos...I swear you have the best action photos around the CB. It's always a great pleasure to stop by. :-)

Brian said...

Way to go Tutu, Hey, I love your toy storage idea!!!

This was the best World Cup match by far! You kitties are awesome footballers! :)

We really like your new toy bin. Yes, we suppose there won't be any poop or pee in there!

BeadedTail said...

Yay Tutu! Pawesome goal! We loved watching your match and you made our mommy giggle by your moves!

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

I could watch you guys play all day!

Tamago said...

What a fun game! Oh Tutu, my star player, your dribbling is amazing. Love your puffed up fur and victory dance!

I love your toy rack very much. So neatly organized! And kitties choosing their toys are just too adorable :-)

TexWisGirl said...

the racks look like a great idea - much better than the previous 'issues'. :)

SquirrelQueen said...

Hey Tutu, you've got some great moves. Concats on the goal. We loves your new toy rack and we're gonna tell our mama we want one too. Nobody here has peed or pooed in our old one but we need a bigger one so mama can get us more toys. MOL!

Purrs,
Cindi Lou & The Kitty Krew

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

Smart idea to keep the toys elevated like that to prevent a repeat performance. But in the meantime, what a performance by Tutu in the World Cup!

The Island Cats said...

Wow, what fun you guys are having! We hafta admit, that first cat toy box kinda looked like a litter box, so we can understand how some cat might have gotten confused. We love your new toy boxes!!

Cathy Keisha said...

HAH! That was funny. Why is Tutu’s tail all puffy? Did she bite her opponent? Heh heh. Soccer scores are low so I guess it’s a final.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

The U.S. coulda used Tutu today. Sigh. Wow--that toy basin *was* a torture chamber--we thought that whole bed of nails dealio was an Indian thing! Ouch!!! Nice to see everyone having fun--you guys live in Kitty Paradise, don't you?

Clooney said...

Wow kitties, theese is great action, we loved watching you play futbol! And that victory dance is priceless! We really love your new toy boxes.

Mollie said...

OMC look at your wunderfull'z toy boxe'z xxoxxxx

Christine and FAZ said...

Wow, what an organised and cat friendly home you live in. Birks and I are most impressed. FAZ

Maggie M said...

Good shot sweet Tutu! Congrats! Do all of you sweeties know that you have it made at your wonderful loving home? What a super great set-up you have. Hugs and nose kisses

Kitties Blue said...

This was a great post with wonderful photos. Tutu puffed up was quite something. And what an amazing soccer player she is. We are glad to hear that you have inappropriate pee and poop problems at your house as well; though, no kitty has ever done it in our toy basket. We also have all the same problems getting along, but we have to work on separating ourselves 'cause there is no special room or area for any of us. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Jobi Harris said...

Haha - Tutu fluffs up with pride, AND sticks her tongue out! I love the new toy cubbies and I hope you don't find any hairballs in the bins.

Furry Bottoms said...

My oh My! LOL, hahahahah the victory dance was priceless!!!!!

Great commentary. I think SomeCat was trying to mark his territory a claiming the toys all as his own. Or her. That was not nice of SomeCat. So those bins were a smart move :)

We have an old garden planter that is pretty long with a handle that we keep all the doggy toys in. They love to clear that planter out whenever they can.

The play by play was wonderful! Love Tutu's very impressive puffy coat.

What a pawesome toy rack!

I have not let Jazz n Jewel see this post. They already consider themselves to be seriously underprivileged. And whoever it is who says that animals never lie has not shared their world with them. Jazz told me (emphatically) at five o'clock this morning that he hadn't been fed since Christmas. Jewel assures me that she hasn't been petted in a zillion years.
And both of them have noooooo toys at all.
Goodness I am cruel.

Coccolino B said...

Wow what a game! Great skills. Your playroom is excellent, must be the best set up for a playdate!

Katie Isabella said...

WOW oh WOW! Wha an exciting game and Tutu came through with a win. Now Boomie, don't you worry. You will have another chance before you know it. You made an admiral effort. Tutu, I believe you were rubbing it in a tad. xxoox

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Faraday: Boomer, seriouslies. GURLZ!!

Austin Towers said...

You guys are much more skilful and interesting than the other football that's going on! mol

Nerissa said...

What a GREAT setup! AMAZIN'. I have to admit, I'm feelin' a little deprived.

LOVE the gorgeous new toy box and I LOVE the fact that you have a playroom. NICE.

The peep is still oohin' and ahhin' over the pictures of you pickin' out the toy you want to play with at the moment. She's says you're cute beyond belief and incredibly adorable. Actually, I think she may be right 'bout that.

Purrs,
Nissy #Niss4Senate

Pretinha said...

Querida Tutu você joga muito bem, você poderia jogar na seleção brasileira junto com Neymar hehehehe

Old Kitty said...

Two formidable teams and both are gorgeous winners! Yay! Awwww we love your toy rack - mum is very very clever and deserves lots of treats!
:-) Take care

Sushi said...

Oh wow! Tutu, you're such a great dribbler. Look at you in action!

Sxanuxa said...

Oh! Yes!!!
Cat soccer is WAY more fun that that World cup!
Kisses all

Cheri Wildcatwoods said...

You guys have quite the playroom - we had someone pee in our toy box so Mom uses a basket now.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi Tutu darling, Just checking in. My Human forgotted that you were a "foster fail" too, so we guess little Butterscotch is in good company ;-)

Marty the Manx said...

Wonderful that you have the co-habitation figured out so nicely. Wonderful World Cup action! Your's was MUCH more fun to see!
Marty and Mom

haopee said...

Aww. Does that mean you guys don't live in a single room? We could relate. We don't stay in a single room either. Chooey and the two chus are ate the second floor, while sickly Buchi is in the kitchen. The boys live outside of the house but they have a giant crate to sleep in.
