Cat’s Meow Cat Toy: A Crowd Pleaser at our Place

Last week, we gave our cats, Penny Lane and Peat, a late Christmas gift: the Cat’s Meow cat toy. We received it from a friend whose ‘outdoor’ cat was not impressed by the mechanical arm and mouse tail that runs in both directions underneath a yellow nylon skirt. Clearly, not the case at our house, with our predominantly ‘indoor’ cats. Both sister and brother are giving this cat toy full marks. Personally, I’m curious to see if the motor lasts as long as their interest. So far, so good. Every bit as addictive as catnip, when used sparingly.

Muse: Toronto Maple Leafs Celebrate Father’s Day Early

Got to give the Toronto Maple Leafs major style points for bringing the players’ fathers with them on their Florida road trip this week. Hard to tell who was happier when the Leafs scored – father or son. Original 6 charm. Very classy.

Music to suit: Horace Silver, Song for my Father

Muse: Revisiting Allegany State Park Childhood Memories Through YouTube

It’s amazing what you can find on YouTube these days. Like a girl and her sister ‘documenting’ their family vacation in Allegany State Park, New York. The exact same trip we used to make every Thanksgiving when I was their age. We stayed in the same old cabins, slept in the same old beds, heard the same mice scurrying about at night and were just as excited to explore the surrounding creeks and woods all day long. If we had a video recorder back then, I’m sure me and my brother would have made the same kind of video. Too cool.

Music to suit: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Deja Vu
