Cat Toys...Flower Shop Style

Hello All!

Thought you might want to get a peek at what a flower shop kitty does for fun. I mean, when I'm not working really, really hard. And when I'm not napping. Or grooming. Anyhow, life in a flower shop provides all sorts of interesting toys.

First off, there are the organic options. The ladies often use elements in their designs that double as entertainment for me. My particular favorites are wisps of bear grass and curly willow.

This is me wrangling some bear grass. It's feisty stuff.

I also enjoy the additional habitat provided by the shop. This is me in a jungle of palm and dracaena.

While I am allowed to hide in the plants, I am under strict orders not to taste test them. Whatever.

And speaking of habitat, I do very much enjoy the packaging that the fresh flowers arrive in.

This stiff paper that bunches are wrapped in creates a fantastic impromptu shelter to pounce from.

And the flower boxes come full of tissue that protects the blossoms during transport. It also happens to be great to wrestle with.

And my favorite habitat as of late is this big box that our new printer came in.

I can just fit my paws out of the cut-in handles on the sides. And yes, I have very big, very furry paws. I am a Turkish Van after all.

And one must always be prepared for the potential attack from above. I can't tell you how many times I've been ambushed by that pipe cleaner (which is also a handy floral tool turned cat toy.)

I would just like to extend my endorsement to the HP Officejet 6500. Excellent cat-related packaging. I have instructed That Guy (aka Nichole's husband) who is the head of our IT department (actually he is our IT department) to budget for a new printer, and hence new box, every few months.

The ladies here often enjoy certain refreshments that I also find enjoyable. Friday evenings after a long work week are often celebrated with a glass of wine.

Which means, I get the cork! An yes, in this photo it appears the cork has got the best of me. I wasn't indulging in the wine-I swear.

And the ladies have a fondness for sugary treats too. Particularly these little Sour Cherry Balls.

I like them because they roll. Bombs Away!
