My cats have loved the sparkle balls I got years ago from a fabric store.

 

My first introduction to the sparkle balls was in a cat toy Christmas stocking. They self-destructed in days. Hence, the hunting expedition for a suitable substitute. The 48 balls survived the ravages of energetic cat play for years. Now only 27 remained.

 

What happened to the other 21? Not sure. The vacuum cleaner may have gobbled up a few. A litter box casualty that got buried. Didn’t get  scooped because it was washing day for the litter boxes.

 

There were 3 larger ones that Lily liked. They are missing. One escaped outside, must have got kicked out when we opened the backdoor. Are they under the washer, freezer, or dropped behind the bookshelf? For now, the 3 are MIA.

Ah, the controversy. The argument is powerful for this scenario.

I didn’t create the unwanted kittens.

Lots of unwanted children in foster homes and shelters. You want children, why not adopt or at least foster them? I 100% admire those that take on this challenge. Most will not. They want their own children. I prefer to choose my own cats to find the perfect match to bring harmony in the home.
