Finally It's A HIT

Hi Pals,


First off - the  Chip-in's for @TomCatSamurai are still open and active.   So there is still time to donate to his cause if you wish to.   I'll give an update on his situation in a later post.  

Remember the Neko Flies I talked about December 7th before Catmas?    If you remember, I said it was a MISS cuz I didn't care that much for them.   


Well, I've  changed my mind about 2 days after I wrote that post.   It's a BIG HIT!
"Come here fly - just a little lower!"
"Ahhh - Gottcha"


Sometimes I grab him in my mouth and run away with him, dragging M behind. Then I hide him under the table.  




Other times I leap from this position 3 feet in the air to catch him.   M and D have tried to get a picture of me leaping at him, but I'm too quick for the camera.   By the time the slow flashy box thing takes my picture, my feet are back on the floor again just like in the picture above.   M has never seen me do that trick before I got the Neko Fly.   


Sometimes M swings the fly round and round in a circle and I chase it, catching him more often than not.   
"Catching flies is exhausting work!"
M has no sympathy for me either.  She says I get to lay down on the job while her back is killing her standing around playing with me or watching me rest.  Well M - just suck it up!  Someone has to play with me and D just doesn't do it right!


I just simply LOVE Neko Flies.  They are so much FUN!


Mario

The boys love their NEKO flies too, Mario. They are very popular over here. Maybe your mom should take a video of you jumping in the air. Some cameras can do a video too.

Have a great Sunday.

pawhugs, Max

We love our Neko Flies too, Mario. The only problem we have with them is that our mom doesn't play with us enough with them!!

Nerissa's Life said...

After reading your post, I'm gonna ask my peeps to get me one of those fly things. They sound great. And your explanation of how to play with them was FANTASTIC. Thanks!!!

Mario,

Dussn't M know you be werking HER out? Oh, that's rite, you let her think she be doing it fur you, BOL.

Ray6955/DaneRay said...

Oh, Mario! MOL! BOL! You always bring a huge smile to your face with your posts and antics. I'm so glad you finally discovered the joys of playing with those "flies"!!! Yeehaw! I wish Chase would learn that playing with toys can be such great fun. You're very lucky to have a Mom who's willing to break her back (almost literally!) for your enjoyment. I must tell you that I can't stop looking at your wide-smile picture showing your pink mouth wiffout teefers. I think that is such a special smile!!! Hugzzzzzz to you, mom, and dad ... and thank you for sharing all your fun wiff us! RAY & CHASE

Cat fishing! That's what our mom calls it. Its the easier way to lure us out from under the bed, or anywhere really. We are just fools for it!

haopee said...

And ain't it the truth. I'm glad you loved your toy but you definitely have to reward your mom for playing it with you.

Huggies and Cheese,

Haopee

Those Neko flies look like so much fun. We may have to send our Dad to hunt for them if work sends him to US.

Mom hasn't found one of those around here so we haven't got one to play with. Mario you look like you are having a great time with yours! I bet M has a fun time playing with you and the Neko Fly.

Hi Mario! Glad to see you got to like the Neko Flies! They are fun, aren't they? One of my boys catches it and then drowns it in a water dish :-)
Have fun, Mario and M!

The Indulged Furries said...

Mario, did you really tell your mom to "suck it up"?! I think my mom would take my toys away if I said that to her. You sure are lucky to have a mom who plays with you and gets you such cool toys.

Clooney said...

Yay, Mario we are happy you are enjoying the Neko Flies! Neytiri likes it too.
