New Toy Tuesday

Yesterday our Mommy and DaisyMae Maus' Mommy went shopping (with the rest of the family). We lucked out big time because we got spoiled with new toys! DMM's Mommy brought us this new blue tent (that Smoke is laying in) all the way from San Diego! It's a good thing because our red tent is looking really sad. Apparently they are not meant to hold up fat little furballs.

Mommy: Zoey! The furballs are not fat. Okay, Smoke may have a little tummy on him, but they're not fat!

Fine, so the tent was not meant to hold up furballs who scarf down their food. But also we got a new big tent from Mommy. It's to replace the kitty condo that she stole from us.

Mommy: Yeah, I really stole it. It's still in the room; I just added onto it so it would go from floor to ceiling so you would have better viewing for the fish tank. But, yep, that was evil.

Fine, so she converted it such that I can't lay on the top any more.
Mommy: You never did anyway!

That's beside the point. So anyhow, we got a fun new tent. Mommy and DMM's Mommy put it together. Boy was that a joke. How many professional women does it take to put a tent together? I'll tell you.

Mommy: Okay so we had a few mistakes that we had to fix, but the instructions were really bad. I mean practically non-existent. Apparently they were written for people who wouldn't bother to read them anyway. But nonetheless we got it put together and the furballs were already having tent wars before it was even completely constructed.

Yep, they loved it and I've even sniffed at it a time or two. I thought that maybe Mommy would play tent wars with me today since all the family left this morning but she says she is going to work on her Halloween quilt. Mommy loves Halloween and Christmas. All the decorating is lots of fun but since she has a case going to trial right after Thanksgiving she says she's not decorating for Christmas this year, since she won't be home anyway. So she's going overboard for Halloween! Oh well, I guess I'll get to have a nice nap in the sunny spot on the table in her work room.

We got one of those tents a couple of Big Moons ago. We should post some piciatures of us in it. Our Big Thing didnt think much of the instructions either, but he says the ones for folding it flat again are worse (he bent ours a little, but we dont try to sit on the top anyway).

We REALLY like what your Mommy did with the old tent! That's some fancy stuff...

Momma saw those tents but she was worried we would be too big for them and then we wouldn't like them. Are they sturdy?
