I thought you might like to see the hand-me-down castle I mentioned in my blog post about the mystery basket. It has sort of been shoved off in a corner for a long time. When my human pulled it out, it was very dusty! So she cleaned it up and here it is. Some of the plastic has gotten a little discolored from age and the sun, but it is still in pretty good shape otherwise.
Sparkle liked it right from the start. She had no idea that my human had bought it as a gift, not for her, but for her then-boyfriend’s niece.
This photo pretty much explains why my human had to keep it, and buy the second one to send the niece.
No one can explain why, but the castle turned out to be something of a kitty magnet. Boodie liked it too. Binga, for some reason, was immune to whatever charms it had.
Over eleven years later, some things never change. Boodie still likes the castle. And of course, I do too. It is a pretty cool hand-me-down.
There is one thing that my human really loves about this little castle. Can you see it in this photo? I will show you a close-up so you can see better.
It has a circular staircase, just like the castle we actually live in!
The best part is you can’t get this castle anymore. Not even on eBay! (My human looked.) So it is kind of a collector’s item.
