my toys: an essay by eddy

i'm seriously into toys. my favorite toy makes a squeaky noise and looks like Bert from Sesame Street giving the finger. i don't enjoy sharing for even one second.

Claws can be so scarey, I have many scars from my cats.

When I was in the military, my cat at the time, scratched me so badly that I had to go to the emergency room. The next day the MP's came to take my cat away. I cried and asked why they were taking him to be quarantined. They said he had attacked someone in the military and had to go. They kept him until they were sure he did not have rabies. I think it was two weeks or two months, gee my memory is getting bad. This was in '74.

I guess there are not a lot of people who have had an arrested cat.

Gotta go work on my TT.

I don't blame you for not wanting to share the squeaky finger guy. I wouldn't either.

Cinnamon said...

Aw Eddy, you make a great couple!

Leah said...

Eddy, your Bert is just beautiful! You're a lucky cat indeed.

Cats gotta have toys! I wonder if the Bert doll was giving the finger, what was Ernie doing, off mooning someone?

Bert'n'Ernie RULE!
Yay, Eddy, hang onto that Bert, it'll be worth a fortune one day!

Both Bert and Ernie used to hang around here a lot when the kids were small!

Dakota Bear said...

Love cats and Eddy is very handsome. Ernie was a familiar character around here.

when you are a cat sharing is overrated.

Eddy, looks like old Bert is giving you what we used to call the "hairy eyeball" (and in his case, the brow too)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You have some really cool toys. I'm jealous.

tut-tut said...

Eddy, keep them all to yourself.

Mrsupole, are you sure your cat wasn't an ocelot? Geeze you collected some extremely mean cats! Wait, you cried and were in the military at the time? I'm confused.

Megan said...

Whenever I say the name Bert I have to do it in an Ernie voice. There is no other way to say it.

Marianna said...

Eddy you are so photogenic! And your toy looks nice...too bad you don't share though ;-)

Take care
peace and love

Ever since he started hanging out with Hitler, Bert has gone all anit-social...

Daisy said...

I do not think Bert is giving the finger. I think he might be about to pick his nose.

Burt looks a little worried that he might get loved to death.

Cuppa Jo said...

heh, I like Bert.

bitchlet said...

Hello, Bert.
Are you hurt?

Oliag said...

How adorable!

LKD said...

I'm totally coveting that flipping the bird Bert.

That, my friend, is a thing of beauty.

I always loved Bert. And Oscar the Grouch. I was drawn to the black-hearted muppets.

Bob loves his toys, too. He has a whole slew of them, a flipping box full, and he loves them all. He has claimed all the toys as his own, even the ones that originally belonged to Elmo.

And like you, Edward, Bob doesn't like to share.

Oh, that bird-flipping Bert. Truly, that makes me smile.

LKD said...

Do you know what I love best about this photograph?

Both Edward and Bert have the same expressions on their faces.
