Feather boas are not for me

At a meeting yesterday, someone referred to a local adult shop (I don't know how this came up, seriously!) making a joke that, "I've heard that there's a place called..." Mr. RK bought me a bracelet from that shop that says "Bad Kitty." I wear it when I'm annoyed. (You ask, do I sleep in it? Shut up.)

Which brings me to the adult shopping experience. (Disclaimer: all family members should stop reading now.)

Never mind how odd, or how scary, some things may look. What I want to know is this: don't any of these people have pets? (Here's a useful hint: no.)

Why do I ask? Yes, I am crazy cat lady. So when I see anything with feathers - boas, little wands with those on the end (What are those for? Dusting?) my thought isn't, "Ooh, that's kinky," it's, "Man! The cats would totally tear the fuck out of that."

Seeing something with any kind of ring or loop: "They'd totally chase that around:"

Seeing anything edible: "They'd totally get sick if they got into that. Should that not be kept under the sink?"

Yes, this is me getting old. Or maybe people with actual children, as opposed to small furry ones, have these thoughts as well?

Another thought is that maybe adult toy manufacturers and cat toy manufacturers are one and the same? Inquiring minds want to know.
PS Fred Phelps - I was hoping it would be more drawn out and painful.

I really, really don't want to think about this. I have started looking at the mulititudes of cat toys in this house in a whole different light. We have a cat tunnel for example. And am wondering whether I can soap and water my mind...

Hmmmm....I think just about everything I do is planned around how much it will affect, disturb, upset and so on my two furry rascals.

Their comfort and peace of mind is of uppermost importance and top priority!

Oh! Dear.....

LOL, LOL....Very funny! And I can see how you could absolutely think some of these things would make great Cat Toys! It's been so very many years since I have been in one of those shops---but your descriptions brought all of those things back to mind, immediately---especially the feathery things....lol!

Right now another batch of kittens have been born in a chicken nest box. My cats do not pull the feathers off the chickens because my cats grow up believing they are chickens. Their early days are spent under a fluffy fat hen who babysits them while their mother cat goes for a night out with the girls.

I am thinking you are right about the same manufacturers do both pet toys and sex toys. Spiked dog collars surely wouldn't have a whole different factory. And those little cat toys that look like whips...totally have the same union worker doing the assembling.

As for Fred Phelps...I have never seen so much happiness happening here in Kansas than I have seen the last couple of days. The Kansas City Star is chocked full of editorials today including one where there is a mock conversation of God telling him he didn't appreciate him using his name for hateful things and then telling him to go to...well you know how that story ended.

With kids and cats. Anything from an adult store has to be carefully hidden away.

"Mommy what's this?"

"Oh, that is just my vibrator" is not a conversation I want to have.

i don't own a cat, but i think i'd do anything to keep my kitty as happy and healthy in life as possible.

A thought on Fred Phelps: WBC requested that no one picket his funeral.

Like anyone really has time for that kind of bullshit?

Just remember, anything can be designed/created/manufactured for use as a "toy", be it for a human or for aminal.

And if you can't wrap your pretty little noggin around that, then try wrapping it around the fact that the Discovery family of channels has a new show out called "Sex Sent Me To The E.R."

I. Kid. You. Not.

Oh yes, I'm sure my cat would just bat a ball gag all over the house.

Also, the Phelps family has asked that we respect their privacy at this time as they grieve their father's loss, which we should totally do because they respected all those other people's families whose loved ones died, right?

lol!

I'm with you: they're two sides of the same company. It's a demand-management thing, similar to the way a computer security company has two divisions. One team creates the viruses and malware, while the other creates software that gets rid of it.

Perfect balance, I'd say!

Riot Kitty said...

So I take it from the comments here I'm not that far out there? At least not on this connection.

Phelps family is asking for privacy? OMG, I just nearly pissed myself laughing over that one.

Vanessa Morgan said...

Too funny. Now I'll be thinking about cats all the time whenever I pass an adult shop.

Abby said...

You do realize this works in our favor? I do all my sex toy shopping at the pet section of walmart. no one's the wiser.

I have never been in a sex shop and have no idea what you are talking about ....
