Disclaimer: This is a humorous article from the views of my cat of what she believes cats want for Christmas.
Oreo, my black and white female cat, provides her favorite top 10 free Christmas gifts for cats. She says everything has no monetary value to cats; therefore it is free.
Empty 20 Pack Pepsi Carton
My cat loves to try to get into this size of carton. Sometimes she succeeds; sometimes not. When she doesn’t, her butt is sticking out while she chase the box around the house.
Empty 24 Pack Pepsi Cube
My cat loves to get inside the 24 pack Pepsi cubes and hide. Sometimes she goes to sleep inside the Pepsi cube box. There are times she uses the handle openings as a way to attack when we walk by. She uses the front opening in the same manner.
Small Square or Rectangle Boxes
Anytime we empty a small square or rectangle box from something we have ordered or bought at the store, she likes to climb in, curl up, and go to sleep. Sometimes, she likes to sit in them and watch us. If the flaps are open to the outside of the box, she will hide under them in attack mode, chew on the corner or smack them with her paw because they move.
Oreo likes these boxes with a fuzzy throw in them for sleeping. She prefers having an old towel or something similar over half of the top of the box to make it a cave style box for sleeping.
Small Wood Handle Pastry Brush
Oreo likes the small wooden handled pastry brush I have to play with. No, I don’t use this any longer since she has claimed it as hers. She likes to carry it around the house by the bristles. She throws it around like a stick and bats at it. She likes to play catch with her pastry brush.
Fuzzy Balls from Purses
I had a brown bag that had two fuzzy balls attached with a string made from the same fabric. She likes to play with those the same way she does the pastry brush.
Anytime Oreo sees a creepy, crawly bug, she turns it into her pet toy. She bats it around the floor as to be playing tiddly winks.
She likes to aerial shows by trying to knock the flies out of the air when they manage to find their way into the house. She has become very proficient in her aerial twists, turns and summersaults.
Work Boot Soul Inserts
Oreo believes my husbands work boot soul inserts have become her personal property. She insists they belong outside the work boot rather than inside them.
Since she likes to hide behind anything that hangs off the futon and beds, she considers our feet the best toys of all. She thinks it is shear fun to attack our feet as we walk by.
Our cat thinks nothing is sacred to humans. Everything in our home is open game as a toy for our cat, Oreo. Everything is free to her because money has no value.
