Eatin' Mousies

I am a true child of the 70's.  Kliban cats were an obsession of my mother's.  We had a few coffee mugs and other little odds and ends, but the best of all were the bed sheets.  There is something so cute and oddball about them that keeps them on my brain.  

A little over a year ago, my kitties were given some toy mice as gifts.  They loved them, played with them, chewed on them, stalked them, and lost them to the netherworld known as under various pieces of furniture.  Recently, while cleaning out and rearranging my dressing room, I found one and tossed it out to them.  Gifts from heaven above could not have been more well received.  

Ashley is my shy kitty and is only now, at two years old, beginning to come out of hiding to socialize with us in the evenings.  She has developed a routine of going to the family room, after a stop in front of the big dog to talk to him (seriously, she stops and chatters at him and then walks away), and sitting on the couch for a bit and/or playing with the climb on cat toy.  When she discovered the "rescued" mousie, well, game on!

After last night, I think it is safe to say that my kitties may be channeling their inner Kliban-ness as it appears that they, too, like to "bite their heads off and nibble on they tiny feet."

You be the judge...

Now, if I could just find those sheets...


  1. OMG! You would love the checkbook cover I used to have!

    It had a Kliban cat singing that song while playing a guitar!

    "Love to eat them mousies, mousies what I love to eat!
    Bite they little heads off, nibble on they tiny feet!"


  2. Here's the picture of what it looked like! Found this online. :)
