The Paper Bag

A couple of weeks ago, Geoff brought over some groceries in a paper bag. Melly was so excited.



The paper bag is still here, albeit a little the worse for wear. By which I mean, its handles are soggy, pitted stumps. And Melly? She is still so excited.

This video is pretty long and I wasn't originally going to post the whole thing, but the last minute or so is a good example of the way Scarlett and Melly interact when they're not fighting or ignoring each other. Melly spots Scarlett at around 1:00, and Scarlett appears onscreen at 1:23.

Oh Hai Miss Melly you are one cute kitty!!

I love Scarlett's big nose in the picture too.

Well, we think Melly owns the bag! Scarlett seemed more interested in the video camera. LOL.

Marlene said...

I love Scarlett's inquisitive nose!

And yes, Melly is adorable too. I'm always impressed by her sparkling eyes and beautiful coat.

Beautiful Melly in her tuxi coat! So cute inside that bag having a ball. Funny how something can provide a kitty hours of fun and not cost you anything!

Hey, we get it - paper bags are awesome. We are impressed it has survived so well for so long!

And the video is great - it is very much like things at our house.

Melly is too cute! She looks so comfy hanging out in that paper bag. My two kitties are the same way. They could care less what's in th ebag, even if it's for them, they'd rather play with the paper bag or cardboard box.

Natalie, this again proves the point that a person can spend the GDP of Uruguay on cat toys and the cat is still going to play with paper bags, rubber bands, and the box the toy came in rather than the toy itself. Every time I shop the first bag that gets unloaded goes on the floor and every time my cat acts like Neil Armstrong, as if no cat has ever gone when he is going. (Even if he had done the same thing four days ago.)

My boys just LOVE bags to play with and ours look an awful lot like Melly's when they are finished with them! Melly just has the most adorable white paws...Scarlett's nose sniffing the camera is pretty fab too :-)

I'm amazed the bag lasted this long! I have a couple paper shredders in the Horde, so bags don't have a long lifespan here.

OH-hohohoho!! That's what came out of my mouth when Scarlett's nose popped into the frame. Well worth the entire 2 minutes.

And no matter how big and gorgeous Melly gets, she'll always be a little dickens.
