And lo, there was much holiday-related consumer activity. Our Christmas shopping is almost done, although I still don't know what to get Hobkin.
The crits are in; tomorrow I start on my rewrite of "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest etc." Hoping to have it out the door by the end of this week.
A sister (or girlfriend) for Hobkin. And have the mastery of the household disputed between them. Or have them team up against fosteronfilm and me. *twitch* I-I think I need to go rock in a corner now.
Maybe Hobkin would like a new blanket . . .
Hobkin's, erm, resistant to playing dress-up. Our Christmas attempt from a few years ago was the most successful, and there was much growling and indignation. The more recent dress-the-skunk effort was an unqualified failure.
I don't have a pet skunk, but I do know the skunks around here like to dig up bees and eat them. I wonder if Hobkin would enjoy a bee toy? My cat *loves* this toy called a "Cat Whack" - which is a rubber "bee" that "flies" on a wire above a rubber ball. This is the best photo I could find of the Cat Whack. My cat's had his toy for 7 months of nearly daily play and hasn't broken it and it's seemed pretty safe and all, but, again, I don't know much about skunks.
Wow; isn't it funny what an important priority for us it is to find presents for the fur babies? My white fur person already has a peacock feather in his stocking.
Thanks for the suggestion! If they made a cricket-on-a-wire toy, Hobkin would probably love it. Or perhaps he'd find it irritating when he discovered that the toy wasn't edible . . .
Our little guy is most frustrating to buy for in that he doesn't seem interested in toys. The most interest he's shown in playing with anything are tissues, which he shreds with joyful abandon, and the mail--ditto shred, ditto joyful abandon. But even then, his attention span is fleeting. He's gotten little packs of tissues in his stocking in past years (and wow, that's a lot of clean-up in that aftermath). Maybe I should stock up some junk mail . . .
"Wow; isn't it funny what an important priority for us it is to find presents for the fur babies?"
Hee! Well, they're important parts of our families, and these holidays are all about family. It'd be wrong to exclude them.
They sure like to keep us on our pawpads, don't they?
I can also relate to dress-up difficulties. My fur baby revolted last year when we tried a Santa hat on him. He was one unjolly kitty. Good luck with the present search!
