Pimp absolutely loves those cheap little mice that come in all colors in the multi packs. You know, the ones with the fuzzy leather tails. Ever since he was a baby, he loves them more than any other toy in the world.
But... he doesn't really love to play with them so much as he loves to eat them. Yes! Whenever I give him a fresh new one, the first thing he does is devour the tail! Every. Single. Time. I have no idea why, but he's been doing it ever since he was a kitten!
Don't worry, it's just a tiny tail and he chews it pretty good, so no worries about it hurting him. He's a pro at this!
And then, when he's done with the tail (that was quick, wasn't it?!), then he just kind of likes to savor the flavor of his mousie...
For a while, I couldn't find these mice anywhere. I thought they stopped making them! Sure, they had the multi packs of mice, but the tails weren't the same. And, clearly, the tail is the best part.
But every time I was in a pet store or Target or anywhere really, I'd look to see if I saw them. It's literally been YEARS since I found any for poor Pimp -- until last week! You wouldn't believe how excited I was to find them at Pet Supermarket when I made an emergency nom run one night last week. I was so happy that I finally found them!
I brought them home right away and gave him one, and even though it had been years, he went right over to it and devoured the tail. Yay! I think it made my whole week. :)
P.S. Santa Paws Drive is kicking off really soon! Right now we're taking nominations for shelters to get the treats and money we'll collect. You have till Nov. 5th to nominate a non-profit shelter. This is our second year (Cute is a co-founder), so I'm excited to make it even better than last year! For more info click on the "Blog" link at the top of this page: http://www.SantaPawsDrive.com
P.P.S. I posted some new pictures of Little Meow in her album on the Cute's Facebook page.
