I don't even buy toys any more. Caps off of things are favorites too....

All the toys end up under the stove, fridge, washer, dryer.

The ones we use are great big ones, without the metal clips to hold them together.
I was very cautious about it at first, and watched the kitties closely.
When I discovered they were being hidden under the bed and sofa, I knew they werent being ingested, just played with.
Very good advice, though!

I've had several cats that do 'cuddle' biting like that
My weirdo cat takes that further occasionally, when she figures out she's had enough cuddling instead of just walking away and finding a place to lay down she'll attack my arm.

What a great opportunity to toilet train him!

Your ought to train her out of that, though. Or at least...

.....recognize that she has a limit and stop the cuddling session before she gets to the over stimulation point (that is what is happening, it's called over stimulation when she does that)

If she had a firm pattern to when she had enough, I definetly would stop before she goes bonkers on my arm. Usually she'll just up and jump off my lap (I never hold her against her will, I love the use of my arms to much ), but occasionally she for some reason rather scratches me than opting to walk away. I guess I just kinda summed it up to her being a bit weird.

That's better than finding the stash of dead stink bugs (without legs) that I found in the basement!

This made me laugh so hard I almost fell from my chair. I have one like this and she's only 2 years old.
