Trusty Old Blue Ball

Micah:  You look pretty intense there, Marcus.  Is the ball threatening you?


Marcus:  No, it wouldn't dare threaten me.  Can't take my eyes off it for a second, though.

Micah:  Why, would it run away if you do?

Marcus:  I was waiting for Jan to try to kick it. She's sneaky, but I'm faster than she is sneaky.

Micah:  Oh, so you were playing soccer?

Marcus:  No.  She picked it up and threw it so we played chase.

Micah:  You don't play catch?

Marcus:  Rarely.  Jan usually throws it past me so it's hard to catch.  But I am good at catching if she bounces it.

Micah:  I'm all for anything that exercises you and tires you out so you leave the rest of us alone for a few minutes.


Marcus:  Jan might have returned my red ball to Amazon (Sending Red Ball on Vacation) but I still have my trusty old blue ball with the tooth holes in it.  Oh, and by the way, the rope toy Jan accidentally threw into the tree a few months ago finally fell down into the pen.  So if this ball should happen to fall apart for no reason, I'll still have something to chase.

Micah:  So your new blue ball is now your trusty old blue ball.  Interesting.  But you do know, I hope, if this ball should happen to fall apart, it will certainly NOT be for no reason!

Marcus:  You're right.  If this ball falls apart, it will be Jan's fault.  She's awfully hard on my toys!



Percy:  Our interview this week is with Sophie, Dexter and Olive.  You can read Three Chatty Cats Chat on Mousebreath. 


We are joining the Pet Parade blog hop with hosts, Rascal and Rocco, and co-hosts  Bionic Basil, and Barking from the Bayou.

  6. Oh, Marcus, you just have to run further BEFORE Jan throws the ball, duh. But I get your drift. She is pretty hard on your toys, but your toys are pretty hard on your TEETH!!!

  9. Marcus, I think you need to demand that Jan plays soccer with your blue ball! You get exercise, she gets exercise, and everyone else gets to relax. Win-win-win scenario! (Sorry, Jan...;-))

    1. Well, the red ball was less than 5 minutes. I am on #4 (indoor) and #5 (outdoor) blue balls at the moment. They have lasted a few months. The other blue balls had ... er, accidents. I get to keep my indoor balls but the outside ones are put away or I'd chew them up right away since they taste so good. Dirt is good for us, you know.

    2. Saphera has a similar 'record' with squeaky toys. For some reason, she rips out the squeaker. Strangely, she doesn't do that with gigglers - she treats those like they are babies she needs to protect.... Purrseidon is the one with a ball collection, but she doesn't rip them apart.

  19. We read the post about the red ball and the mom bean said "they sure don't make things like they used to". But maybe those ball makers never met a Marcus before. They should make you the official tester 'cuz maybe then they could make a virtually indestructible ball!!!

  20. It sounds like Jan IS super hard on your toys. Imagine throwin' one into a tree and gettin' it stuck up there. MOUSES!

  21. I have a favorite little fuzzy blue and green ball that I love chasing while dad bounces it high off the walls here. Even for an older gal I still got some kitten in me!

  22. Hi Marcus. When you wrote about the demise of your red ball, we did wonder about your blue ball, and how it was holding up! Nice to know it's still there for you. :)

    We love the Three Chatty Cats, and will go and check out your interview of them now!

    Hugs!
