Madi: Kleenx box Take Two

Mom here: I enhanced the Kleenx box a bit by adding two things Madi

really likes in addition to the rubber bands.

TAGS, she will play with them for hours. I decided to try an empty box

since she loves poking her paws in them. Whala it worked.

She immediately came over to check things out...

I'm thrilled to say she did pull at the rubber bands.....
once or twice and seemed rather intrigued by the sound.

Ahhhh...but her favorite was the tags. You can enlarge the picture to see she is
licking it like it was coated with Fancy Feast.

Once she realized it was empty she nearly stuck her entire face in.

Then she noticed the 2nd tag hanging from the side. It came off the handle of a
brush. As soon as I took this picture, she stuck her paw in the round tag.
Dang camera won't take several pictures in a row without pausing so I wasn't
able to get that and of course she didn't do it again.
I'm very happy to have found something new and exciting for the
Diva .


  1. Hi Madi & Mom, you are certainly being very inventive there. Looks like Madi was suitably intrigued.
    Our cat Mouschi loved nothing better than an empty cardboard box.
    We bought lots of cat toys over the years but the boxes entertained her the most - well that and the hamster one of the boys had at the time - it used to travel around the house in a circular ball!
    Enjoy your clever toy Madi!
    Have a great weekend. Stay warm.

  2. ps did we miss Kleenex box Part One then!!!!

  3. Who knew you would have such fun with the kleenex box.Cute. I am still working on getting out of work, one step at a time here. Catch ya later

  4. I have no tags in my house anywhere. I used to have tags everywhere. But about 16 months ago, they started disappearing!

    If you see them, please tell them to hide! :)

  5. Very cute Madi, very cute. You are a very secure kitty!!! Does she still get cat nip??
    Does her have any interest in the rat, or is that old news? Tom got cat nip for Happy and she ask for it 2 or 3 times aday!!
    Have a good week-end and stay warm, Bambi, Happy and Fern

  6. Madi, I am so glad you are not a high faluting diva that needs to have all those expensive toys!

  7. Cool new toy Madi, boxes make the bestest toys of all. And it's even got tags, I love tags too. When you put your nose in did you find any good smells. I'm going to ask mom to make me one of those play boxes, bet she will!

    Have a fun weekend playing.
    Cindi Lou!

    I hope it's getting warmer down your way, we still have fog but the freezing rain went north of us.

  8. Love it! I'm a green dog and I always try to find ways to recycle. This is inventive and cool. Madi loves it, therefore, off to the humans to request a similar box for my kitties (I know I trash talk about my kitties, but I do love them dearly, for real)

  9. Hey, Mom--can you teach Tommy to do something crafy like that?? I think the Diva -er--MADI is lucky!!

  10. Well, that's an inexpensive toy! Maybe our mom could make something like that for us!

  11. Now that's creative! You could really get a lot of mileage out of that toy by adding some bells next and who knows what all? Cute idea!

    Hope you have a great birthday.

  12. What a cute idea! I'm going to try it on my cats!!

  13. Madi, Mom is going to a lot of trouble to make toys for you...this kinda looks like a kitty guitar!!!

  14. Hi, Madi!
    Glad to see you are having fun with that kleenex box toy!
    Sure it was pawesome that your mom made it more interesting for you!
    Kisses and hugs

  16. Funny how silly things can entertain a kitty, even a Diva! lol

  17. Hi Madi,

    Yes, today the 10th of Jan. is my birthday. Mommy had to post our blog late last night because of church this morning.

    Hope your having a grrrreat Sunday!

    Riley and Star.

  18. Ah yes Madi, we remember Take One now! We remember the book review better..... actually we have to tell you our mum is at that age where she forgets what day of the week it is!
    Bad news for us as we have to remind which days she goes to work......
    Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
    love and kisses

  19. Kitties are like that!! Happy doesn't have a toy box, but she sleeps here and there in the house. Does she like cat-nip?? Happy sure does!!
    Miss Computer is not happy today!! I hope she keeps on working!!
    kiss for Madi, Happy, Bambi & fern

  20. and when you retire, you can sell those at craft

    Very clever......

  21. The best toys are the ones that don't cost a thing!


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
