Hide and Seek Presents!

So the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde Mighty Hunters evidently decided that we should play Hide & Seek Presents!  They have always enjoyed leaving presents for us and the Trouble Twins (Thomas & Zaphy who are out of the same litter from a stray Queen... who later became a Princess) were trained by the late Christopher (my first rescue as an adult who lived to be 16) to always put presents in a place where mom won't step on them.  All of the various members were taught this rule and have passed it down to every new member of the Horde as they've come along.

 "Any presents in here?  I need something to give to mom!"

Ah Spring!!  The time of giving mom presents!!  So far this year we've had one left on the floor and that wonderful present that got chased all around the bedroom in the middle of the night only to be left by the hall scratching post in the morning.  But wait!  What is this by the front door?  "There!!  By the hinge side so that mom doesn't step on it!!  It's a itty bitty present!!  A vole!  Look, mom, look!!  Don't you love your present?!"  ::shakes head::

Mister Kitten "Why does mom want this magnet??"
Thomas "It's all about you, trust me."


  1. i do not think my mommeh would like the kinds of presents you guys are looking for...

  2. Annie likes to leave hairballs as presents, so our human can find them with her bare or sock feet in the mornings. :-D

  3. @AttieCattie - "Mom says that it's in our nature, but for some reason she doesn't give us eat-trays when we give them to her. ::pout::"

    @Kea - "We like to leave ours on the bed or on a chair. ::grin:: Then mom or dad put their hands on them or sit on them. That's fun too!"

  4. Maybe your Mom doesn't need any more presents for awhile!...We hope you all have a fun, happy weekend...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  5. We usually *eat* our presents...but we do leave the big waterbug bodies out for Daddy to vacuum up. Oh! Once we left a scorpion (dedded) for Mommy. She screamed like a girl! Typical.

  6. Hmm, what kind of presents have you been bringing your mom? Are they deaded?

  7. Thomas says, "We don't have scorpions around here but mom wouldn't like them at all! We eat the toys we play with outside but not our presents because that makes mom scream at us. We don't like that. Not one little bit. Because when she does, she picks us up, hisses at us, and puts us outside. ::shudder::"

    Star says, "We like to bring mom birds and voles and occasionally a bunny and of course any mousies that come into our house!! They don't try here, especially after we played mousie-in-the-middle. ::weg::

    But in our old house they had a hole they would come up in so we got to hunt them down in the water heater closet and the kitchen. Ha!! No mousies escape the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde!! Oh yeah, and most of our presents are usually deaded. When we bring ones that aren't mom yells at us and makes us take them outside to play with them there.
