Being an overprotective cat dad I'm compelled to buy the most healthy food I can afford as well as purchase many, many toys my cat will never play with. After failed ringie balls, shit on a string and bouncy crinkly stuff toys, I have discovered Edie enjoys catnip stuffed animals the best. Go figure.
So when a friend at the pet store today advertised a fish shaped toy as 'kitty crack' I figured what the heck, lets try. She was right, very right. Edie took to it immediately, rubbing her face all over it and licking it without pause.
After about 15 minuted I think she reached some stoned climax and hovered over the fish in a content and protective posture. I'd never seen her do this with a toy so I thought it would make a funny photo.
I think its the closest she has come to feeling a motherly desire to protect something.
Or she just liked the toy.
Or my man brain can ever possibly conceive what it means to her cat brain.
Or maybe I'm just over-thinking this...
