Mike Has A New Kitty!

By Sara In AZ


Well y’all Mike has wanted a kitty for a while now. His beloved Osirus passed away a while back and ever since then we knew we would get a cat someday – when the right one popped up. Nothing has really jived so far, but when we came upon this rubber kitty toy from the 60s, well we just could not pass it up. Kitty is marked on the bottom ‘Edward Mobley Co. 1960’ and ‘ Mfg. by Arrow Rubber and Plastics Corp.’

And here kitty is, making her debut to the world. Don’t ya just love her to pieces!

She does not eat or poop, so I guess that saves us from worrying about the dreaded litter box.

Mike and I debated for a while if this was supposed to be a girl kitty or a boy kitty. I keep calling kitty ‘her’, but he insists that it is colored blue because it is a boy kitty. We have decided to call kitty George. 🙂

Hi George! She makes a ‘meow’ sound when you touch her belly.

George also has one bad eye. Mike calls it kitty’s lazy eye, and does not want me to touch it at all. I prefer to think of it like kitty is winking at me sometimes. Shhhhhhh, don’t tell Mike I had George wink for y’all.

Uh-oh, looks like George is tired of having her picture taken. Get back here George!

So that is Mike’s new kitty! I think George will be around for a while!

    Yay! Y’all are talking in meow kitty speak meow!

    I love George! She is TOTALLY winking and her blue tinged fur is the meow cat’s meow!

    We had the dog version of her when Pip was a baby and she’d love to run and knock it over and wrestle it. I loved hearing that crazy sound that the toy made when squeezed! She also liked to bat it’s eyelids. Those toys ROCK.

    Thanks again for the call to vote! 🙂

    Kelly – Meeeeeeeeeeow – from George! 🙂

    I think her blue tinged fur is the bomb. And look, you are calling kitty a “she” too! I will have to tell Mike kitty IS a girl!

    That is too funny you had the dog version. I saw they had a bunny version, I would love to find that!

    Yow! (That’s short for “meow”.) I was all set to call him “Boy George”. He/she is a super cool find! Congrats, Sara!
