Aby-a-Day – December 6: “Precious” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Precious.”


Cats have things that are precious to them.


If you have cats, you know how to tell which things these are, like Jacoby’s crispy catnip bacon, which always seems to end up in my bathroom.


Or this IKEA mouse, which The Nantucket Cat carefully fills with catnip. No matter where I put it, this mouse always ends up in the middle of the front bathroom floor.


It’s kind of funny, really. Toys they don’t like disappear under furniture or stay in a toy bin.


But the toys they love (like sparkleballs, a kit-tea bag and a Yeowww catnip sardine) end up in the middle of the floor. We have a lot of cat toys, but only a very few end up in the bathrooms or the hallway.


The most precious toys of all end up in our bed. This is Tessie’s sparkleball – obviously, the most precious toy of all.
