The day my cat ate a fake eyelash

Standard

This was taken after the first fake eyelash was a goner, and she was moving on to the next one. 

Shadow & Smokey- those are my cats. Well, they look like cats, but sometimes they surely don’t act like it. Shadow- (the smart one) likes to play catch. It is played with a hairbow, and if you don’t play with her for awhile…she will climb up in the closet, get a hairbow out of the container and bring it to you. Smokey (the over-sized one) he is just plain fat, but I was trying to be nice. He chases his tail, begs for scraps at dinner and is a bully to his sister. Oh, and they both love to play in the water. Identity crisis?? I think so! I am surprised they don’t bark instead of meow at me.

They also don’t eat normal things. Not only does Shadow like to play catch with hairbows, she likes to eat them too. Smokey loves Q-tips…I don’t get it either. I have to hide things like that from them, or I am afraid one day he will die from cotton overdose. This one is great, look at the picture below…

If you gave Shadow the choice of the having the item on the left (yummy cat treats) versus the item on the right (eye makeup remover), she would choose the one on the right EVERY time. She will literally wait till I take my eye makeup off at night and steal the tissue with the remover on it and go hide to lick it. Forget having to lock up prescription drugs or household cleaners from my kids, I am going to have to lock up things from my crazy cats. When she decided to chow down on one of my fake eyelashes the other day (that I had worn on Halloween) I truly wasn’t surprised.

My 10yr old is responsible for cleaning out their litter box. On a few occasions, she has found some cat poo with pieces of hairbows sticking out of it. I have now warned her that she needs to look out for some hairy poo soon. I am pretty sure that she despises having to clean the litter box as one of her chores. I told her to look at it as a surprise….you never know what you will find! 😉
