Out With the Old?

One of the things that happens this time of year is Mommy gets into clean out mode in order to donate stuff for tax reasons.  Imagine that.  Anyway, she was still in clean out mode this past weekend and said it's time to toss out our Ess...
We have it all broke in so why does it need to be tossed?  Maybe the scratcher part is kinda hairy but the Ess part works just fine...
Sure we have new scratchers but look, they are flat, non-Ess shaped that don't curl around my floofyness...
Somekitty is so dramatic isn't she...
Dramatic?  Whaddya mean dramatic Bella?  Look at the curves in this Ess!  I love these curves!
Uh, I don't get it...
Maybe because I prefer something more cushy for my curves.  

Do you have an Ess?  Whatcha think of it?

Enjoy your day!
Angel and Isabella

PeeS:  We've kept the old Ess for way past it's expiration date because Angel loves it.  We cannot find another Ess with the scratcher wrapped around the top curve like the old one.  Most have the scratcher in front and then carpet on the very top of the curve.  She doesn't like those.  If you know where to get an Ess with scratcher over the curve, let us know!

You mean like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dream-Curl-Cat-Scratcher-/221638346106?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item339aacc57a - I think there are several for sale on eBay.

I hate it when things that are just getting worn in right have to be thrown away. No Ess here since dogs prefer chewing over scratching

Karen and Gerard said...

Spunky Doodle and Manny say: Just because there is fur on it doesn't mean it's worn out. We think you should fight to keep it, Angel! We don't have one, but if we used it and liked it, our mom would keep it for sure!

Sorry we can't help you with the Ess thingie...but we are pretty sure that your kitty buddies can!! xo Chloe and LadyBug

Angel, looks like Summer solved your problem. We went and looked and it looks just the same or at least pretty darn close. Hope the Mom gets you one, and if she doesn't, let us know.

Oh noes, not getting rid of your Ess!
Our Ess is the same style as yours. We got it at Pet Smart but a few years ago.

Fuzzy Tales said...

We've gone through quite a few ESSes, from PetSmart and Walmart. We like them with or without the scratcher, though, so we're a bit easier to please. Ha. Maybe your mom will find one on Amazon?

Awwww, I have a hard time parting with my favorite things, too! Especially when I can't find another one. :-/

Duni said...

Sammy has a favourite cat toy and the store doesn't stock it anymore... Good luck with finding the same Ess!

Here's one - http://www.amazon.com/Petlinks-System-Dream-Two-Surface-Scratcher/dp/B001VIYAR4 and here's another: http://www.walmart.com/ip/SmartyKat-ScratchScroll-Cat-Scratcher-Color-May-Vary-Cats/8110821

I had bought one for my two kitties and they studiously ignored it.

BeadedTail said...

Thanks for the links Sparkle and Grace! We never thought of checking eBay! Grace, I'll check those out too. At one time I read in the reviews on Amazon that what they received wasn't as pictured so it seemed the design had changed but maybe they changed back. We've looked in the WalMart stores and it's always been the one that the scratcher stops before going over the curl but maybe the online one is different. Oh the things we do to keep some floofy white kitty happy!

Sandee said...

Awww, you both are adorable. I've not a clue how to get a Ess like this one, but I'm betting someone does.

Have a purrfect day you too. I linked you to Awww Mondays. My best to your mom. ♥♥♥

Aww I know your mum has kept it for you as you like it so much. I hope you find a new one.

Lin said...

Oh boy, I sure hope you find the Ess that you like. I get crabby when they stop making something that I like. :(

The Island Cats said...

We have an ess with the scratch part on the curve. We got it a few years ago and we never use it. It looks brand new. We hope you can find another one. If not, we'll send you ours. :)

Daddy got ours at Wally World! If all else fails maybe your Mom could glue a new bit of sisal rug on? One of ours got all torn up so Mommy took the sisal off and we love it just as much!

Kitties Blue said...

As usual, we are behind in our reading so know you have a big, new and improved scratcher. Hope Angel approves of it. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
