On My Scratching Post With a Mousie #SundaySelfie

Happy Sunday!


Today's selfie is of me and one of my mousie toys (I didn't want him to be in the shot, but he tried to get in as you can see.)

Sunday Selfie

The mousie toy is a gift from our lovely friend Sheila Jeffries, who writes amazing cat books (as well as human books too). The mousie is a bit on the large side, but that's OK. He also vibrates and tries to walk a bit when you pull his tail. 

Mum ordered my scratching post/tree from Zooplus.

I've had it for a year now and I do really love it because I get to perch up high and watch birdies through the patio door. I also glare at all the cat intruders too, who are so bloody annoying. Anyway, I do use the post a lot, but as you can see from the scratches on the wall behind me, I like to do a bit of scratching on there too. 

Granny doesn't like it of course. But I do, so that's all that matters. Walls are meant to be scratched, as I'm sure all kitties would agree. Mum was going to edit the scratches out for this selfie, but I told her to leave it. It looks nicer that way 😻 


Do you scratch the walls?

Peep doesn't let me scratch the walls, but I do scratch the gate post and occasionally claw at the sofa... well needs must when the gate post isnt around! Purrs ERin

  5. Our Reggie sometimes scratches the walls, but his paws just make little slidey-squeaky noises so maybe he doesn't have his claws out? Cats are strange

  6. Beautiful, Athena. I wish I had words to better express your beauty ... beautiful doesn't seem like enough ... especially for the soul we see in your eyes. Time to teach that mousie a lesson, right?

  7. Yep, that mousie looks real, Athena! Chuck and Angel scratch on the cabinets and mattresses, but not the walls. We like a well-loved house!

  10. That's one big mousie, so big he looks real. As for the walls, not so much but we like to scratch the doors - it's ohhhhh so fun! Mummy keeps us away from the sofa by putting a huge scratching post just where we like to scratch.

  20. My goodness, the walls? You have mad scratching skills. I'd love to see how you do that on video one day! (But I'd have to hide the footage from Fergus, so he won't get any ideas!)
