Every so often my human brings home cheap trinkets for us cats like the ones you see below, but at our old house it was really a problem.
One minute Boodie would be walking around with one of them, as if it was hard-won prey instead of some dumb toy.
Then next thing you know, she had lost it underneath the old couch that the humans used to have!
Once those things wound up under that couch, they were hard to find!
Finally the humans got rid of that couch. There were like a billion toys under there! When they moved to the place we live in now, they got a sofa that toys can’t hide under, and a toy box for our cat toys. But to be honest, I don’t really like those flimsy freebies anyhow.
