Caturday Gone Wild – The Disturbing Phenomenon of Cat Toys Plotting to Take Over Our Living Rooms…

Spring brings with it a beautiful time of renewal and rebirth, but for an innocent kitten intent on keeping the world safe from harm’s way, it is not all peaches and cream…

Spring starts out innocently enough… daffodils and tulips bloom, the sunlight hours are longer and we can shed our heavy sweaters and clunky boots. But before you know it, it also brings with it things like heavy rains, severe allergies, fleas, and of course, something far more ominous… That’s right… I’m talking about the infiltration into our homes of the extremely dangerous feather boa toy… A phenomenon that very few people, if any at all, know about…

The origins of this innocuous toy remain a mystery. They tend to appear almost exclusively in households with cats and usually come as a result of a human attending an event such as a blogging or writing conference or a trip to Pet Supermarket. They come in a variety of pretty colors and while there has actually never been a documented incident of one them deliberately plotting to cause harm to anyone or anything, one can never be too careful when it comes to something that is fun, charming, whimsical, and inanimate.


Such a brave soul little Mia is. Here she sits, completely unaware that these brightly colored feather toys behind her are plotting to get her up from an impending nap to engage her in fun and stimulating exercise instead. Mia – please get up and hide while you still can!!

Just ask your cat(s) if you don’t believe me. According to them… well actually maybe not according to all cats… it might just be Jazmine who feels this way, but anyhow, according to her, apparently these adorable “toys” are a horrific menace that must be obliterated from the face of this earth. Or at the very least, your living room. So please, I beg of you, if you encounter one of them in your path that appears to have gone wild, remain calm and slowly back away. Let your cat handle the situation – preferably if you can, find a hyper-active kitten with an over-active imagination like Jazmine to tame the toy and that way no one will get hurt.

I have the proof to show you what can happen if you don’t take this post seriously – but I must ask in advance that if you have any kittens or children in your household, that you please have them step away from your computer now. What you are about to witness is extremely graphic and not for young eyes…


Oh no – I  tried to warn you all, but you didn’t take me seriously because you think I am nothing but a sweet and adorable kitten! Now look at what happened… those lousy feather toys have made a mess on the floor and have captured Zee!


Zee!! Stay where you are – that yellow and red one behind you is planning a sneak attack! Looks like I’ll have to step in and take care of this!


Listen toy… you may have fooled some of them with your “I’m so innocent and harmless” ploy but I see right through it… I’ve got your number, pal, and your days are numbered!


Yo, Peanut, I’m about to close in, some backup if you don’t mind!!


Thanks for watching my back, Peanut! I’ve got it all under control now! I just have one more thing to do, then everyone can relax again…


Yeah…. you are all welcome. Just bringing the toy back here to make sure it won’t attack anyone else. No, I am not having fun with it… It is an evil monster and not some cute, sweet, fluffy little toy… And stop telling me I look adorable… I am a tough cat who is defending the world from evil… Geez…


Snore… once again, a job well done….

Whew… so there you have it. Another household saved from the potential dangers of the dastardly feather toy. Thank you so much, Jazmine! What about your house? Do you have a cat that protects you from toys that are secretly plotting to take over your living room? Or worse yet, the world?
