Feline Toy Story II: 33 Cats That Show You What They Do With Toys, starring the famous TCS Kitties!
Yes, you may notice this is less about being "furriends" with one's toys. We're moving from the realms of romance and introducing some action to the plot! Let's try and introduce it more gradually though... After all, many cats do enjoy snuggling next to a big plush friend.
Sleeping next to big cats can be a very comforting experience -
And provide companionship -
And help you improve your self-esteem -
The larger stuffed toys may make great furriends, but bring out the smaller ones, and a cat's hunting instincts kick right into action. Yes, as promised, it's time to move into the action shots!
Cats are predators, and a toy mouse or birdie can be just as enticing as the real thing. Watch your cat's behavior when you introduce a new toy and you should be able to see all stages of "The Grand Chase".
It usually starts with stalking one's prey -
Unlike real prey, toys aren't very good at running away, which means you'll get to witness a full-blown attack that is right out of a BBC nature film. Feel free to narrate the following shocking images of spectacular natural awesomeness using your best David Attenborough impression.
Warning: You may want to keep children away from the screen for the coming photos. Viewer discretion advised.
Once the prey is captured, most fierce tigers cats keep vigil. These smart kitties know that some animals "play dead" so they keep a close watch over their kill. Just in case it tries to get away. You just never know with these devious critters.
Some cats go as far as to carry their killed prey to a safe spot. This helps make sure no one else gets a bite of their coveted prize.
And others still choose to shred their prey to make sure it never ever runs away again!
Unfortunately, some of those brave hunters that keep guard over their prey end up falling asleep. Fortunately, the prey tends to remain still, at least long enough for their parent to snap a quick shot.
Of course, other times, the prey can move around... As this picture clearly proves -
Whew! Are you ok? Or is your pulse racing from all the action?
To help you relax, we'll share a few final images, showing more kitties who choose to befriend their toys.
See? It really is possible to enjoy the company of a toy without hunting it down!
Or is it...? [Insert ominous laughter here]
