Thankful Thursday- Foiled again!

Hi Furriends, Raz here.

I love BirdTV.  It's so much fun and we have lots of different varieties of birdies here in Florida.  
It's easy to watch from our windows because I can get right inside the vertical blinds.


Another fun part of the blinds (at least I thought so...) is the cool chain that you can play with and swing at and bat all over the place.  Well it WAS fun until Mom said something about getting my head caught in the chain.  Spoilsport that she is, she bunched the chain up into a little ball and covered it with aluminum foil.  I still can bat at it but it's up high and there's hardly any chain and I cant get my head in it.


Mom says I'm a sweetie and she doesn't want anything bad to happen to me.  



Does your Mom or Dad ruin your fun too?  If you have blinds, did your Mom or Dad come up with a way to protect you?  I'm really thankful that my Mom loves me so much!!!

Our Mommy totally ruins any kind of fun, too. We had shades all over the old house and she had them all tied up nice and tight to the ceiling!

Our fun is ALWAYS ruined around here! My favorite toy is rubber bands, but my human hides them from me! And if I ever happen to locate one, it is immediately taken away! No fair!

Our head peep ruins our fun like that, too. The cords from the blinds are all tied up or held up with things she calls "alligator clips." We know they aren't alligators, because we've seen an alligator on the bird TV, and it looks nothing like our blinds.

The head peep had a cat who got caught by the back leg in curtain cords about 20 years ago, and she had to cut the cord down to free her, so she's very careful with cords now to keep us safe.

Our mom always takes away the fun stuffs!! Like, Carmine likes to EAT plastic bags, so she won't allow any in the house *anywhere* except the cabinet (Carmine doesn't know how to open the door). Hers says that it would be bad if Carmine got his head stuck in the bag or if he ate too much of it and had to get surgery to get it out.

Milita likes to HIDE her medication, especially hers eye drops, so mommy always puts them in a closet so she can't hide them from her anymores.

We guess mommy has reasons for taking away our fun things.... :)

Although it may seem like your Mom is a spoilsport, she really is very wise. We can't have anything bad happening to you.

your Mom is just looking out for you. I always sit in the blinds, (they are my musical instrument lol) but we have the kind with a rod to open them so there are no worries

I think you've just given an idea to Glogirly about our window blinds. I couldn't care less about them, but Waffles thinks he in a gymnasium.

I have very similar blinds and mum had the control put at the end where the tv is and I don't bother with that end. Your mum is wise to keep it away from you.. Hugs GJ xx

Janet Blue said...

MOL, we like your pun…foiled again. We are so glad your mom cares about your safety. However, we think we would like whacking that tin ball more than playing with the chains. Stay safe.

Well, at least your mom has made a cool toy for you to play with. Our mom is always ruining our fun...we lost count of all the ways she's done that.

Mom tucks the ends up into the header. Seems to work.

The Cat From Hell said...

Our Mommy has ours all tied up too!
Them and the strings on the other blinds. Spoilsport
