Yesterday Ivy’s first KitNip Box arrived. I pay $19.99 for her to get it once per month. I don’t know that I’ll keep doing it for long. I just thought it would be fun for her for awhile.
I put it on the dining table this morning and opened it. I wanted you to be able to watch her explore what’s inside.
Ivy loves boxes of all varieties. Little did she know that cat goodies were inside this one.
“What’s in there, Ivy?”
It’s mostly toys and a pack of cat dental chews. Nope, she’s not too interested in that.
Ivy begins to paw through the KitNip Box. Not just a lovely box but goodies inside! As you know, Ivy is curious about everything.
This explains what’s in the KitNip Box. I don’t think you can read it because it’s pretty blurry and the text is small.
The yellow and pink hair scrunchies are the first things to capture her attention. I never thought of them as cat toys before.
She can’t figure out how to get the hair scrunchies away from the cardboard they’re attached to. Mom comes to the rescue with a pair of scissors.
Finally she gets distracted by what else is in the box and goes exploring. It’s like watching a kid at Christmastime.
After awhile she tires out. It’s time for her morning nap. She used to sleep behind my recliner on a pet bed in the mornings. Oftentimes now she’d rather sleep on the top of her beloved cat tower.
Happy Mother’s Day to you.
On a sad note, this is the second anniversary of Abi passing. I still mourn her. Still cry. Still miss her. And guess I always will.
I take great joy out of being Mom to Charlie and Ivy. I feel so lucky to have them be a part of my life. I cherish them.
I’ve been Mom to many pets. And my sweet Abi was one of them. I remember that goofy look she’d often have on her face and that still makes me smile.
Every time I look at one of the many photos I have of her, I begin to cry. Loss is hard. Some losses are harder than others.
It sits heavy as a stone in your heart.
