Moet and her blue capeIt’s been a while since I joined social media and in that time I’ve made some furrtastic friends. Some so amazing that they even send me gifts. My gifts have come from furriends both on Twitter and Instagram and from lots of places all over the world, and every single one has delighted and entertained me.

Well now, it would be rude not to ‘model’ my new gifts, especially when they are wearables. Although I must admit, I’m also partial to ‘trying on’ treats, toys and cards for size as well.

So I thought I’d let you know just what it’s like to be a cat-meowdel, while staff does the handy camera-work. Or not so handy, as you will see.

First of all, you have to realise I’m a rather restless girl, who never sits still and thinks that everything presented is a toy – that is, until I can smell that it’s something to eat. With that in mind, staff’s first challenge is to adorn me with said item. Never easy. However, once it’s on, I try my hardest to ‘scrape’ or ‘roll’ it off. Staff tries hard by telling me in that silly cat-voice of hers how beautiful I look. That does help… I may have a very small vain streak, and eventually I’ll stop trying to remove it and start strutting around. It’s at this point that staff grabs the camera. Or her phone. Or neither if one isn’t to hand, upon which ensues a frantic search before I get too frisky and run off.

Patience, I’ll come out eventually. And so I do! Staff snaps away frantically on ‘burst’ mode, so as to try and get at least one decent shot. I dart around, don’t stop moving and refuse to look at the camera, in true diva style. But credit to her, there’s usually one shot that’s usable in the hundreds she’s just taken (and needs to patiently wade through).

But I guess I’m not really a ‘natural’… yet. Staff says she will try to train me by getting me more used to it. However, I’d much rather keep it as a game of chase and shoot!

The photos attached are, of course, the good ones!

The Very Best Toy for Cats

"Of all the [cat] toys available, none is better designed than the owner himself. A large multipurpose plaything, its parts can be made to move in almost any direction. It comes completely assembled, and it makes a noise when you jump on it."
