Yesterday, Steve and his female came home with a great new toy for me! Although it’s officially called “Deluxe Hot Cats,” I call it… “The Sausage.” The toy is basically four material-covered cylinders linked together in a manner similar to sausages (hence the name). But, instead of being filled with disgusting, unspeakable grist like real sausage cylinders, my new toy is filled with… yes, that’s right… CATNIP!

Oh, the joy of rolling from one “sausage” cylinder to the next! Plus, because of its length, I can grab one end of "The Sausage" and rub it around my face while gripping the other end with my hind legs! This has GOT to be the BEST human invention yet!

Ironically, Steve and his female got “The Sausage” at a new local pet store called a la Mutt. Normally, I would eschew anything from a store with such a name, but in this case, I’m making an exception!

My Mommie told me that someone donated a couple of those to the cats at the shelter and the cats all went WILD for them!
