Mean, Mean Knittergran

Two of my grandchildren received these cute little hamsters for Christmas. I had never seen them before, and I thought: Wouldn't Baxter LOVE one of these?!"

So today, off I went to Target and I bought one. I couldn't remember what they are called and asked a salesperson for the little fake hamsters that move and make noise.

She asked: For a boy or a girl?

For my spayed kitten, I replied.

Ooooh. A cat will L.O.V.E. it, she said.

Back at home, I put it on the floor, turned it on and waited for Baxter to attack it.

Baxter ran, really, really fast. Into another room. He peeked out and kept an eye on it but would not get near it until it stopped.

Then he tossed it down the stairs to the basement.

I figured that this meant he now L.O.V.E.D. it and turned it back on.

He ran. Really, really fast.

So, the price of one Kung Zhu at Target: $9.02

Watching Baxter run and hide: Priceless!

Snicker. We've gotten motorized toys for our cats and gotten the same reaction. My son has Kung Zhu hamsters and while our cats don't run away, they are extremely cautious about them.
