Flashback Friday

Occasionally Oui Oui's Lovey is mentioned in our blog or comments  She did a post about it a year ago in September when our blog was all new and shiny, and without many visitors.  So Oui Oui thought she'd like to run that post again.

THE LOVEY


This is my Lovey.  My first, oldest, favoritest and best loved toy.  I've had it since I was a tiny kitten and first came to live at home.  Its as old as I am (5 years).  I never tire of playing with it.  Or sitting on it, even sleeping on it.  It was lost for a while and when I found it one day, the peoples were happy to see it too!  Now the Girl keeps it in a safe place for me.  I found the place recently and the Mom saw the Lovey in the hallway (I am not too good at picking up after myself).

I am never too tired to play with my Lovey.








The Mom bought a bunch of loveys like the real one, and while I like them a lot, they aren't the same as The Lovey.  Old friends are the best!

Purrs!
And everyone have a great weekend!

I am embarrassed to confess that even the most played-out of our toys does not look as well-loved as yours, Oui Oui!

Love these old toys. Like kids and teddy bears. I still have Merlin's old squirrel from kittenhood. It's 18 years old and seen better days.

I know exactly what you mean! Star has a favorite butterfly. I bought her a new one exactly like it, and it's gone missing... but the old one is right where she wants to play with it!

Oh Oui Oui, that Lovey is such a nice toy. Or it looked like it was a nice toy at one time. We love our mousie too. We have been through three of those. Hope all of you have a great Friday.

We can see your lovey is well loved - we have our favourite toys but we can't love ours as much as you do yours Oui Oui as they still have fuzz!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Julie Baugh said...

I like your new design - very trendy.

Kizzie likes her tail to play with most of all, although she sometimes goes for proper toys too.

Pat Hatt said...

The first toy is always the best, my sister would agree. But the cat eats all of his toys or buries a few in the litterbox haha

I know what you mean. I have a black rat which I have had since a kitten. I call him Scruffy Rat but mum calls him Fred Bare. Mum bought me his twin but I wasn't interested in it. It is the only toy I have played a lot with and he is 12 years old now.

I have my lovie too. It is passed down from Robin who passed almost 17 yrs ago to Admiral to me. I love it. It is a decrepit mousie.

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

Mowzers, you destroyed JUST enough of Lovey to keep it around, that's sooo smart! We have a bad habit of destroying our faves to the point they have to be thrown out...*sigh* Momma says we need to learn "temperance". Whatevs.

You look like you LOOVE your Lovey!
