This post documents a little of Scooby’s birthday Tuesday. His “Gotcha” day is in October, and he insists that be celebrated as well. He is pretty keen on the “Dynamite” catnip toys. On this birthday I got him a new catnip boomerang toy to try out. I will admit my eyes were watering when I removed it from it’s plastic case! My face sort of resembled the face on the boomerang (From Drs Foster & Smith). Additionally Scooby got some of his favorite cat treats, and got more than his daily allowance of them. Some new “Jackson Galaxy” toy cat balls were thrown into the mix from Petsmart. They are oddly shaped, and colorful enough to help me find them! The cat balls were not too interesting at first, but in the morning they were all missing! I had to retrieve them from under various pieces of furniture with an umbrella. So let’s have a little look:
This smells STRONG!
Testing under the chin
Tastes good TOO!
Catnip Boomerang $5
“Jackson Galaxy” TM cat balls $5.69
I bought these things with my own money, and I am not endorsing them, just showing Scooby enjoying himself! How long the catnip will attract cats in the boomerang is an open question. At any rate he had a good time, and was very well behaved. That is all that matters.
The paperwork I received when I got Scooby from the shelter stated his birthday as March 28, 2010. Assuming that is correct–which is all I can do–means Scooby is now 7 years old! He is in a lot better shape now than when I first got him, and hopefully, he will stay that way.
Break out the fresh dynamite cat-nip! There is a party going on!
So, what are we doing today? I think I got a case of “cat block”. I have not been testing out new foods or toys on the cats. What to post? I was looking at recent photographs trying to make some kind of sense out of them, but I really did not; so, I will just put together some common but hopefully interesting scenes of “Cats around the house” occupied by my multiple cats ie. four.
I will say a breakthrough was made with Scooby. He would occasionally get horrible red scabs on his face which were a sign of food allergies. By trial and error I discovered he is allergic to fish in his food! To make things simple, no one gets fish. Scooby will seek out and find the “fish” plate! I said he was allergic. I did not say he does not like fish. One thing you have to look out for is the small-print ingredients in your cat food. A can marked “Chicken” can have some fish in it, I discovered!

Scooby says: This is my chair now!
Scooby and Zeke: Let us in! We have animal rights!
Opie (above) says keep away, Scooby! Getting them both in the same picture frame is rare. She is aloof.

Marigold and Zeke enjoying a meal together. I ran out of clean plates and bowls. Whatever they were eating must have been good.
