MouseDuck

During Tweet Week I posted a picture of me with my Mouseduck, and some of you were wondering if it was a new breed of mouse (or duck).

The story goes like this. Mum was out shopping one day (she can't remember where exactly but thinks maybe she was in Ikea) and saw a whole wall of cat toys. So of course she went to have a look for me (I have her well trained).

This duck was there in the cat toy section, but it was labelled as a mouse. So mum had to get it for me. There was also a fish labelled as a mouse, so she got me that one too. She thought it was funny. Mum is weird sometimes.

Did your mom take pix of the duck and fish marked as mousies? Mine would have. (Eye roll.)
Seriously.

We didn't know IKEA had cat toys! now we know what to ask for next time mum goes there!

Eric and Flynn said...

Haha, maybe they label everything mouse.

Melvin said...

They have cat toys at IKEA? Man I love that store.
And that's so funny about the mouseduck. At least it's a cute mouseduck!

Stella said...

Its alright if she is weird as long as she has money in her pocket for the goodies!

Kisses,

Maybe it's a little Scandinavian humor. Very cute.

Can we see the mousefish too? Do they both know how to swim?

Oh Huffle!
I knew we had something in common- we both CHASE something!!!...you chase mice, I chase CatS!!!...That gives me an idea...I think I must ask my Mom to get me a CAT toy.
(Please don't get the wrong idea...I do love you! Glad you got rid of the other cat though!)
Lots of licks

Our question is whether the mouseduck and mousefish taste the same as a regular mouse?

Our mum loves funny labels and names. Last night, she and dad had Batard bread with dinner. She got it because she misread the label.

Swedish kittehs must get very confused.

It was very proper of your um to bring all these exotic creatures to you for inspection.

Dear Huffle,
That is very strange. Mumma once found a labeling mistake at the pet food shop and it made her very cross. That's right she didn't find it funny at all! Something about the label of my kibbles saying $73.95 when it was really $110.95. She takes things so seriously sometimes :S
Clearly your Mumma is more wise than mine!

smooches,
Mr Darcy

Batu said...

That would appeal to Vicki too. No wonder she bought them!

The Whiskeratti said...

Fun toys!! We wish we got more than we do. Our Mom is just stingy.

Gandalf, Grayson and Whitey said...

We heard a rumor that some BIG news iz coming, Huffle! Srsly.

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Huffle what a cute story and yes you do have your Mum trained well.
Very funny that the duck and fish were labeled as a mouse....wonder who they think they are fooling...certainly not smart CATS.

Ha, we just discovered that the word 'mouse' comes from the cat language. We call it "moaws".

Cyber-sibes said...

Hey, who knew? There are all sorts of weird and unusual creatures in your part of the world!

SeaThreePeeO said...

Ahh that explains it. Don't worry, our mum is weird too. I think it has something to do with being human.

The Kitty Krew said...

Okay, that makes sense....in that weird, human kinda way. Our Mommy would do that too. MOL

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

PS - we were able to sneak a message into Bugsy at the kitty vet jail and he said he'd love to come hang out in your new parsley pot when all his stuff is over with! :D Thanks for the invite!

Danielle said...

You do have her well trained! My bean is just starting obedience school. :)

my mommy thinks that is funny too. beans are weird.

hey, did Koji wet himself when he saw that poofy House Panther tail? i think i would have. you're one tough cookie!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Next time your mom is at Ikea, have her get you a tent! I have one from there and it's great. I love it.

Meow,

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

We'd love to see your IKEA toys. Mewmie brings us funny toys from there too, like an orange octopus and our favorite blue shark!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

I don't think it is weird, I would do the same thing.

I will have to see if they have toys like that at our Ikea (it is 5 minutes from my house) - we got our kitty tent there but I don't remember seeing toys. If it was there then I am not surprised it was labeled weird - Ikea is Swedish, and we have a Swede visiting us this week (boyfriends cousin), and he is weird, so I am basing this weirdness assumption on him.
