Hey guys! Here’s my selfie for today. I’m sitting on my ESS scratcher. I bet you’re wondering why I call it an ESS scratcher. Because it’s shaped like the letter S…or more phonetically…ESS!

Ernie sitting on his scratcher

Do you know how long I’ve had this scratcher? Over 10 years! And it still looks almost brand new. I guess I’m not very hard on my toys.

The mom has threatened to give it away because I hardly ever use it and she says it’s just taking up space. But whenever she says that, I make a point of sitting on it…like I am now…and giving it a good scratch or two. So then she decides maybe she should hang on to it. Then I ignore it again. MOL! Always keep the humans guessing…that’s what I say!

Are there toys around your house that don’t get used much?

  1. You certainly have taken good care of your Ess!

  2. Ernie, I couldn’t count all the the toys and cat items around here that aren’t used by anyone…until we put it away…then, some cat pulls it out of the toy box again!
    You cats are always messing with your humans!

  3. That’s a terrific selfie Ernie! We do that too, can’t let them toss out our stuff!

  5. My ESS is a ragged mess, Ernie.

  6. You have a point there, Ernie…or better, an Ess… 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday 🙂 ♥

  7. That’s funny, Ernie. You are like an employee that works just hard enough to not get fired. 🙂

  8. Great selfie Ernie. Teddy is the same with his toys. Just when I think he doesn’t like something, he starts playing again. Have a great day!

  11. Sam had one of those scratchers too, and she also didn’t use it much. But I never could let it go until after she was gone. It was in such good condition I was able to sell it (though it was missing a little toy that snapped into the bottom of it – probably one of the dogs ate it, LOL).

  12. You can send it here Ernie. I like them but Miss Fitz rips them to shreds in a few months and dad gets rid of them. I wish she would be more, Manly? Sorry I have to figure this out…

  13. Handsome Ernie, you really know how to play your mum 😉

  14. I love your selfie. That scratcher does look new. XO

  15. You do take care of your stuff, good boy!

  16. Yesterday I pulled a blanket out of Mudpie’s KatKabin because she had stopped using it and I was thinking she was trying to tell me it needed a wash. I left it on the floor and now she’s sleeping on it on the floor! You crazy kitties!

  18. We have an Ess that looks almost new too, Ernie! My human hangs onto it, though, because I pose nicely in it. It’s actually in the 2020 calendar!

  19. Looks a cools scratcher to us! Some toys are just meant to be looked at – right?

  20. Tee hee hee. That’s what I do when Mom gets the silly idea to get rid of one of my trees. Works every time. Humans can’t be outsmarted by us pussycats!

  21. LOL yep, always keep the humans guessing 🙂
    Great selfie with ESS, Ernie!

  22. I like my ESS too even though I don’t use it every day.

  23. *I* had one of those Ernie. And do you know what?? Do you??? The Human thought I wasn’t using it often enough so *she gave it away*! THAT’S what!!!

  24. WOW Ernie – I’m impressed that scratcher isn’t all scratched up! It looks new – better use it once in a while so Mom doesn’t toss it out!

    Hugs, Teddy

  25. There are so many unused toys around here, we could have an auction of them! MOL! Minko was the toy user, me, not so much…though I do like those pom poms from the craft store…go figure! I do use my scratcher a lot, though.
