New nip mouse

Dad went to the pet supply store to get our cat food and picked up a purple Kong corduroy mouse that you can refill with catnip. He is on the hunt for a new favorite mouse because our favorites are no longer in the store and one day they will have to go. (We still have a wish list for some toys from William's Feline o' Mine store, if Mom and Dad would just get around to ordering them.)

Here's Josie meeting the new mouse.

New toy standoff
And of course, you can't have a new toy without a new toy standoff.

Huggy Bear with the new mouse
Huggy Bear was very happy with have a new mouse to hunt. He likes to hunt throughout the night and bring toys to Mom and Dad's room.

Jasper with purple mouse
I even got a turn with the mouse. (I'm not sure why my picture has an orange hue to it. I guess my orange-catness just overwhelmed the camera.)

The nice thing about this mouse is that, when the catnip loses its potency, Dad can empty it out and refill it. We're hopeful that this will become a new favorite.

New nip toys are always welcome - and fought over - at my house!

That looks like a great mouse toy! Truffle brings her toys to Mom Paula's bed throughout the day and night. We never know which new toy will be on the bed when Mom Paula wakes up!

Some human was (gasp) thinking when they designed such a wonderful toy!

It looks like the new mousie is a big hit!

Cheers for new toys. My mom and dad tried the catnip thing with me and some kind of ridiculous new scratch thing, but catnip just doesn't do it for me. Enjoy!!
