Several weeks ago I brought home a catnip stuffed toy for my cat. Sylvie is not so interested in catnip, but Puppy is an addict. He has played with the toy quite a bit and I have found it at various spots around the house since–under the kitchen table, on the stairs, in the basement, hallway and foyer… Recently, he has begun bringing his “Schmousie” to bed with him. Puppy sleeps in the bed with my husband and me. If Schmousie isn’t already in the bed, Puppy finds it and drops it at the foot of the bed and then curls up next to it and goes to sleep. In the morning, my husband removes the disgusting item from the blankets and the whole ordeal begins anew the next night.
As you can see from the picture, Schmousie has been much loved. His stuffing is coming out and he is rather the worse for wear, but what favorite teddy isn’t?
