Melly and the Straw

A couple of weeks ago when I was rummaging in a cupboard, a bendy straw fell out. Melly heard it fall and immediately came running to check it out. She gave the straw a few experimental bats before picking it up in her mouth and dashing off. She then proceeded to play with it for several hours.


If you only have time for a few seconds of video, start at the 45 second mark. It is there that the hilarity truly begins.

Our favourite part was when she came charging out from behind the curtains! LOL!

Hours? Melly, wow, you have a far longer attention span than we do! We're truly impressed!

Happy Easter weekend to you all!

Melly looks like you were having a blast! My Melrose loves straws too... tie a knot in them and he can chase it around for ages...

There's nothing like wooden floors for pets to skid around on! I laugh my head off when my crazy animals end up doing unexpected somersaults on the floors, too, as they try to change direction too fast. Melly, the Mighty Huntress!

we bought a 100-pack of bendy straws just for the cats. They looove them. Occasionally we find one that is completely chewed to death.

Oh Melly! You're having so much fun! We find the best toys are the ones that aren't supposed to be.

Melly, we loved watching your white paws batting at that straw! Good move pouncing on it from behind those curtains too! MOL!

I love how Melly came charging out from behind the curtain! lol
Cody loves straws too but I always have to take them away from him because he tries to EAT them!!! We spend fortunes on cat toys and they love straws that cost less than a buck...just like kids!
