Fang Shui Friday

Cat toys, which represent energy, or the fire element, should be red to stimulate activity and creativity.

From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.

I love red and mum buys me lots of stuff with red. Toys, my tag, my collar. It is true that we kitties need to be stimulated by play and creative stuff. So go, play with your kittie, now. Then you can come back and see mum's pictures of the outside.

Thanks for coming back from your play time.

Mum was outside with Virginger yesterday taking a look at all of the purrty flowers and such. When the windows are open you can smell the lilacs and all of the stuff.
Dark Purple Lilacs (these came from Grampies old home)
Light Purple Lilac's
White Lilac's

I have been tagged numerous times with a meme, see below.

I like that toy you have in the tub. That looks like fun. The pictures of outside are very pretty. Virginger looks likes she's having a good time!

Tub playing is nice. I used to have a tub with a high shelf across the whole top and the walls and shelf were made of nice cool-to-the-tummy tile. My favorite thing to do was to leap up (about 5 ft) from the edge of the shower to the shelf and sleep there. I can't understand why mom would get scared when she was in the shower and I would leap up there?

Purrs for red toys and fings. Our faffrit toys are red. Trixie's faffrit mousie is red but she always loses it under stuff.

Yore 7 random fings are furry interesting but we were sorry about all of your feets being with no claws.

We tagged you too, but our computer crashed last night and we couldn't tell you until today. Your mum's lilac is looking lovely. Virginger seems to think so too.

I love red things but I love pink things even more. You are so wise Derby! Now Meowmy is going to go get me some new toys. Yeah!

Your flowers are beautiful! The boys were wondering if you are ever afraid that there might be water in that bath tub?

Lilacs are pretty! I just noticed that I have hardly any red toys. Time to go shopping...

Parker said...

Don't the lilacs smell wonderful!?! I have red mousie too! I love my red mousie, it has fake fur and I can toss it very high and give it bunny kicks! Hmmm, where is that mousie?

Those are great pictures of your outdoors (and Virginger)! Specially in the Crabby Apple tree!

I know I like the red feathers in the Whirlybird toy best.

Fat Eric said...

Oh Derby, your flowers look furry pretty. My mum loves lilacs. We have some in our garden but the flowers are just starting to go over now. The roses are coming out though.

My mum says thanks for the words of comfort about her tough week at school. She doesn't think the term will be over as soon as you think though - British schools don't break up for the summer holidays until 20th July, so there is still a long time to go!

Our lilacs are in bloom too and they smell heavenly! Mom had some when she was a girl and they are her favorite flower...gramma's too!
Regarding the barfing...you are correct that kitties who eat fast barf. When I said I was eating slowly that is the Fancy Feast. When I eat the dry, I go quickly & tend to not chew, so up it comes!!! -Scooby :)

Suzanne said...

we've got a lilac bush that smells really really good about now!
