I was sleeping on the front porch. It's warm, sunny and
peaceful there. Or, at least, it was. Slow little dream birdies
were dancing in front of me and I was primed for pouncing
when my happy little kitty dream-world was interrupted by
my Mom (aka Freddy Krueger) sneaking up on me with the
strangest thing I've ever seen attached to her hand. I'll
admit I'm a bit biased against "toys." I'm not the slavering
buffoon that Kiwi is nor the half-wit that Kylie is - they'd play
with a rock tied to a string if Mom or Dad acted excited
enough about it - but I'll play when the mood strikes. But
not with this thing... NEVER with this thing.
As its name implies, the Kitten Mitten is a glove worn by
humans. It has long fingers topped with tiny pom-poms. It
also jingles. To put it in human perspective, imagine trying
to entertain your son or daughter with a game of baseball
only you modify the rules and throw 5 balls at them at a
time. Balls with bells attached to them. Yay. Fun.

In any event, I swatted at the contraption once or twice to make the folks happy, then turned
my back on them and began licking the most inappropriate parts of myself I could reach to
let Mom know was quite finished "playing" with the multi-fingered clown glove of yawn.
If you're a kitten, unburdened by the complexities of adult cat life or if you happen to have
just fallen into a bucket of catnip, you might find this toy entertaining. For my part, had the
inappropriate licking not driven Mom away, I was a heartbeat away from hacking up a
hairball to make my point.
