One of the cool things about being a kitty about town is that I can go shopping! In fact, I was off buying Christmas presents for Binga and Boodie at one of my local pet stores just yesterday.
We went to Urban Pet because it’s the biggest of the local shops (plus my human needed to get some cat food they have in stock). It was full of potential gifts!
My human said I was not supposed to test out the merchandise, but it was hard not to. Anyhow, first up, I needed to find a good present for Binga.
I bet she would totally love a… brand new litter box! Ha-ha, just kidding.
I really decided to get her this catnip crocodile cat toy.
Hopefully, she won’t mind that I tested it out! I figured that since I was already buying it, it was okay.
Boodie likes to carry things around in her mouth and meow loudly, especially in the middle of the night. So I thought this octopus would be a good gift for her. She can grab it by the tentacles.
Maybe I should get them a bag of treats too!
Should I get them this awesome bag of bonito flakes, or…
This tube of hairball remedy? Just kidding! I think I’m done shopping now.
Meezer's Mews & Terrieristical Woofs says
Those gifts are sure to be enjoyed by your sisfurs. Do you think they might even share??
Cathy Keisha says
Boodie and Binga have the last laugh. Since they don’t go shopping, they’re not gonna get you anything so I hope you got some toys and treats for yourself. Would you believe I already got a litter box as an early Christmas gift? Bah humbug!

Hairball remedy? EVIL, Summer, pure evil. Faraday loves it.
I wish I could go shopping with you Summer. It looks like you find some exciting places and stuffs. That is sure nice of you to pick out purr-esents for your fursibs. Lots of good options you found, too. Hugs!
You are such a sweet sister!
I, Marvelous, have bought Kozmo, Jo Jo and Cinnamon gifts, but I did not get to go to the store. I am now supervising my human in making us all some crocheted spiders! And all we need now is some catnip to put inside them.
PS I vote for the hairball remedy 🙂
icat and Jean says
That was so nice of you to choose the gifts yourself, and try them out too. Good choices and they will love them!
the Dash Kitten Crew says
Boodie does that TOO??? Sienna does that here and carries stuff from Mum’s workroom (often things thought lost…)
Oh and Dot Kitten carries in a.. wait there’s a blog post in this isn’t there * grin*
I think you made excellent choices Summer. I really like that Octopus. The Farm cats would enjoy tossing it around
emma and buster says
You are such a sweet sisfur and you shop better than our mom.
Awesome selections, Summer! We bet Binga and Boodie will love your gifts for them. 🙂
Toffee ripple Fuzzypants says
Yoo are an excellent shopper, Summer! Binga anâ€™ Boodie will love the gifts that yoo chose for them!
Just Ducky says
Wow, you get to go shopping too? Mum just goes on her own, but I don’t think she goes to the pet stores much!
Spitty the Kitty says
Hello Summer! It is so much fun to watch you shop for your nearest and dearest 😉 We think you should buy ALL the treats for Binga and Boodie. They are Good Girls. Maybe not as good as you, of course, but still pretty good. I like to carry toys around and meow loudly in the night too! That’s because I think the Human should wake up and play with me, dammit. Why does she need to sleep when she’s home with me? I don’t see why she can’t take care of that at work.
Fraidy Cats! says
mol! the hairball remedy 😀 that’s something our mom would do to us. you picked out nice gifties, Summer. Our pip has a special froggy toy that she carries and meows loudly with it in her mouth
pip, minnie, hollie, sharpie, ditto, TL
Excellent choices, both are cute and kooky. Our sister started doing the talking loud with a toy in her mouth this year. She sounded so strange our human thought she was sick but after the vet it turns out she’s just kooky too. We can’t wait to see how much they like them.
Marty the manx says
Great gifts Summer. That bag of Bonito flakes yummy!
Random Felines says

Memories of Eric and Flynn says

Roby Sweet says
You picked out some great gifts, Summer. Itâ€™s nice that you tested them out a little, just to be sure!
Eastside Cats says
Da Boyz would LURV the octopus and crocigator!
Looks like you made some great choices, Summer. I bet Binga and Boodie will love their presents! I wonder what you’ll get?!?
The Swiss Cats says
That’s so sweet of you to think of Binga and Boodie ! You chose cute toys, and they look like a lot of fun. Those (and bonito flakes) are purrfect presents ! Purrs
very thoughtful to get them gifts. theo’s got his eye on the octopus.
The crocodile and octopus are so cute and looks fun! I bet they will love the presents!
Ellen Pilch says
I think a new litter box would be the equivalent of getting a handmade sweater from Grandma for a kid 🙂 You did a great job choosing gifts, I hope they are as good to you. Emmy does the same thing during the night with toys.
What fab gifts! You’re such a great sister, Summer.
Melissa & Mudpie says
You made great choices! (Do you hire out to do Christmas shopping?)
Toby and Leia says
That octo is really neat. And we are sure they will both appreciate the love and effort you put into finding just the right gift for them.
William's Kith & Kin says
Summer, those look like great toys! Maybe Binga and Boodie will let you play with them too.
Brian Frum says
There sure have some cool things there. Great choices pretty Summer!
Madi and Mom says
Summer those YEOW!!! catnip thingies are potent…..I rec’d a nanner for a Christmas pressie from Hailey the Canadian pup. Before Mom could even get the plastic bag out of the envelop my head was in there too.
Hugs Madi your bfff
PS mom has had 2 antibiotics and already feels like a new woman
Miss Frankie drags her stick toy around in the middle of the night howling like a banshee – I bet she would love that octopus (even tho she is not a catnip loving cat.)
Laila and Minchie says
What a great shop! Great gifts you picked out, Summer.
The Island Cats says
We hope Boodie and Binga don’t see this. Otherwise, they’re gonna know what you got them, Summer.
Katie Isabella says
Summer, I know I would love that octopus for sure and the croc too. I also carry things around..but my babies…and I sure make announcements in the night when I bring them into the bedroom. xx
Christine Carroll says
I bet Binga and Boodie will love their gifts and have great fun.x
Purrjamm Cats says
You are a great fursis. It’s always a good idea to test out any gifts before you buy them. Love your product testing pics. Great expressions. Boodie may need the hairball treatment, MOL. Purrs
Now those are some great choices, Summer. Would love to see Boodie carrying her new toy around. Two Two loves to carry things around.
Ingrid King says
You’re so thoughtful, Summer.
sue brandes says
Looks like some great gifts.
Those are amazing gifts!
Scylla, Fenris, Tuiren, YinYang & Chimera (ATCAD) says
The catnip crocodile is so cute, it would go purrfectly with a Cajun Night Before Christmas.
The Poupounette Gang says
That sounds like a great shopping trip, and great present choices! We have never been to pet stores but Tommy got to go to one for the very first time last week, and he loved it! He is planning to blog about it tomorrow.
Charles Huss says
If Binga and Boodie read your blog, their surprise will be spoiled.
Mickey's Musings says

Testing before you buy is important.
That way you know that Binga and Boodie will like their gifts l(
