Amazingly, here I am with all the presents — alone! This is what I call a Christmas miracle!
Well, that miracle lasted about a minute… just until the first present started to get unwrapped. They got excited because there was a bird on the box.
Sadly, it was not a real bird. It was “Perfect Polly,” a motion-activated, plastic parakeet. “Life Size and Very Realistic,” the box said. Whoever wrote that copy is not a cat. This thing is so fake that it makes Hollywood starlets look silicone and botox-free.
Boodie was not impressed either. The worst part is that it has been chirping all day. Somebody (i.e., my human) needs to shut this thing up.
My human must have been on some warped bird trip because the next gift was also a fake bird. This parrot was supposed to make noise too… and it was supposed to go to my Secret Paws partner. Except when my human brought it home, she discovered it was defective. So did she return it to the store? No, she wrapped it up as a gift for us! That is embarrassingly lame, and I am glad you are all a witness to it. Somekitty needs to create a Tumblr for Human Shaming.
Binga did not get the memo about human shaming. Apparently she likes this thing.
Finally, I can put my paw of approval on something — this microwaveable Kitty Cuddle Pal will be nice to curl up with on cold winter mornings!
Since this is being posted on Boxing Day, I thought I should include a little boxing before getting to the final gift.
It’s a FroliCat Pounce Rotating Cat Teaser, featuring Marshal Maus, who moves around in weird unpredictable patterns. Marshal Maus was actually kind of cool!
Binga agrees. In fact, I have been waiting my turn to play with it for a ridiculously long time.
But Binga didn’t get the best toys of the day — the box that the FroliCat came in, and the pipe cleaner my human had off camera to help me pose!
