You know those (highly obnoxious) people who think their kid is more outstanding than any other? The kind that boasts with the ‘my child is on the honor roll’ bumper sticker type? Well, I’m now that proud parent who can’t wait to scream how fabulous my feline is from the hilltops of Tennessee.
And why you wonder? Not only can Teddy bring me birds while I soak in the bathtub (click here to read about his adorableness), he can hunt and gather…wait for it…wait for it….tampons!
I was minding my own business when Ted burst through the door like his tiny tail was on fire. My immediate thought was “Jesus. Please don’t let it be anything still living,” (as my sweet Bear once brought a live mouse into the bed one night at 3am….I thought he was taking one hell of a bath (smacking his lips like he was eating fried chicken) and when I went to drag him up by my face, he had a little friend…pleasant experience) and it took a second to realize what kind of prey he’d ‘hunted’ out of my purse (he’s also very good at confiscating toothbrushes – read here).
As he spit the tampon out at my feet, I felt a little tear come to my eye. Not from being overwhelmed with happiness that my cat just killed another inanimate object but tears of sheer delight streamed down my cheeks as I laughed my ass off (I wish it was that easy). What would I do without the comical fur ball love of my life?
I’m just trying to figure out what my braggy, boasting bumper sticker should say…
[…] kidnap) at the mini manse for some playful diversion. He seems to take after my beloved Teddy Bear, by killing tampons and presenting them to me as […]
[…] proudly corralled tampons like John Wayne did […]
Great party trick and I am sure will entertain any house guest!
The problem with cats is they REFUSE to do any trick on command. But, I casually lay the tampon bait down when I know I’m having company and low and behold, Ted presents my guests with a tampon of their own!
Well, everyone loves a party favour
Yes, please film Teddy in action one day! He is incredibly entertaining 🙂 I wish he would have been at my mini manse a few months ago when I had a mouse that made itself very comfy here, although Teddy bringing me a “mouse gift” in my bed would bring me nightmares lol
Oh I can share Ted and his hunting skills anytime needed. He’s a chill traveler but a high maintenance eater. He eats duck and pea dry food. But I’ll send plenty. Let us know when he needs to head your way and I will be sure to tell him to keep the caught critters off of the bed!!!
Oh my that poor little mouse wouldn’t last long here 😉 I so wish we were neighbors, Teddy would be the most admired and spoiled cat in the hood. Duck? No problem! I’d serve it to him in a crystal dish 🙂
Teddy already adores you but getting crystal out? He may leave me for you!!
Oh no he would never leave his mommy who brought him into a loving home:) I would just be like the aunt without kids that spoil their nieces and nephews 🙂
You need to start filming these escapades!
You know, I really should! And then maybe I can get Ted his own sitcom on Animal Planet!
You really may be able to in this day and age!
My Kat Will Out Hunt Your Honor Student!
Teddy thinks this is the puurrrrfect slogan!
LOL! What a great hunter!
I taught him well, huh?!
Well, you could put the last picture with a legend 😉
Ha! Teddy thanks you for the compliment!
I have a whole cabinet full of tampons from the good old days when they were needed around here…bring Teddy over! We can drink shots for each one he brings out.
I. LOVE. THIS. IDEA. Brilliant!
Such pride he takes in his fetchings.
Yes, he sat like a lion on that damn tampon for about two hours, he was so proud!
