Iz gonna get you sucker! - Rumbles

We've been issued a challenge by the NZ Next Top Model contest. They want to see us modelling with our favorite toy.

I've got a great many favorites, but the one that truly captures my heart is the infamous little red dot.

Rumblemum NEVER lets me play with it any more, because I get soooooOooo worked up. I play till I drop (quite literally) and I spend the whole day looking for it once it disappears (again, literally)

She decided to bring it out special for this contest - she was thinking that I'd matured a lot since the last time we played with it, and it's a great little toy...




MISTAKE! hehehe... what you don't see in this video is me running around in circles trying to catch the dot... me looking EVERYWHERE for it after it went away (I'm still looking for it. I'm convinced it's under the sofa now)

I get the feeling from the concerned look on her face I won't be seeing my laser toy again.

No wonder it's your favorite toy, you are so good at chasing it. You are really fast.

"The Boys" and Karen said...

You two have some really great moves there. Thanks for letting us see a bit of "poetry in motion!"

Those red dots are hard to keep track of, though.

Love your movie.

Eric and Flynn said...

Wow Rumbles, you really do intend to get it don't you. We won't play with ours. We look at where it is coming out of instead of chasing it.

Holy smokes, Rumbles, I never realized how BIG you are! Big beautiful mancat for sure! (Girl said that "beautiful" part)

Kea said...

Rumbles, that was a great video! We can just imagine you hunting for the little red dot, long after it's disappeared. No wonder your mum doesn't bring it out that often. You really get into the chase! :-)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

But it's such a fun way to exercise and stay trim. Can you say the word "moderation?" No, you don't have to spell it, just say it. Over and over and ...

Mishkat said...

You two are adorable! And we completely understand Rumblebum's OCD about the toy. (Mom had to hide a valerian stuffed toy from Franklin once!)

P.S. Our mom actually has a laser pointer for work, but is afraid to get us the red dot toy because she doesn't know if it's safe or not (Note: she has not researched this!) If you get a chance, let us know if it's OK and/or where to get a good one! It would be purrfect for playing with our dad after he comes home from work.

Busy Buttons said...

Wow! Look at you go!!! Very impressive, my friend.

*whispers* Do you really think it's hiding under the sofa? Maybe it's in a kitchen cabinet by now.

Misha said...

Great modelling! I killed my evil laser. Must ask Mishamummy to find me another one.

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

Holy Smokes Rumbles~!!! You executed that challenge PURRfectly! You MUSt win!!! Cricket is a junkie for the laser too.

Lynx217 said...

oh dear rumbles... must I teach you everything? You call THAT a stretch? dude, trust me, just show the rumblemum how big you really are. we both know that isn't your full length. TSB is laughing though because she says you remind her of a young me. I'm not sure how to take that personally but I think it was a compliment for you. got some work to do though still. soon you will learn the art of stealth stalking. Inigo has that one, i know it doesn't look as fun but trust me it is.

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Oh, the red dot... How I lubbed the red dot but mom won't let me see it any mores. I gotted way obsessed over it like you and looked for it for hours and would not gib up. I woz in a crazed frenzy. So I is banned from hasing the red dot :(

One Cats Nip said...

That was a great way to spend my caturday! You two playing with the laser its great that you two both love the toy! Love watching you two play with it!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

That is the coolest movie ever! You are such a great red-dot chaser (sorry, but Inigo is just no match for your awesomeness in this activity). I hope you catch it for real some day.

My Human used to torture me with one of those all the time, but I just gave up so we don't play that no more :-(

Sparkle said...

Rumbles, I think you might have to go to Red Dot Anonymous!

Your Daily Cute said...

First, I wanted to thank you all for the kind words yesterday. All of the sweet comments were so comforting, and made my day a little easier. Thank you.

Second... OMC! What a fun video! Rumbles, do you think I could use it on the Cute?!?! Please, pretty please with catnip on top (and maybe a red dot, too)?

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You haves it bad for that red dot? Wow that red dot has you moving! You are really good at that stretching!!

Tora said...

Great movie, Rumbles! You both look so handsome too.. MOL.

The Island Cats said...

Wow, Rumbles! All that action, we can't believe you didn't catch that red dot!!!

Your Daily Cute said...

Yay! I'm thinking I'll probably put it up Sunday. I can just grab the code from Youtube.

I'll let you know for sure so you don't miss your grand debut on the Cute! :)

Sweet Praline said...

Love the movie. Inigo is looking at you like you are crazy!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I thought I was your favourite toy!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

BeadedTail said...

You are one fast cat Rumbles! That song was purrfect for when you play with the laser! We didn't know you were so big either and we love your markings when you were stretching up against that white wall - we could only see your dark spots which looked purrty cool!

Jacqueline said...

You are both such silly boys and we loved your video, it was so much fun!!...You guys are welcome to come over and play with our red dot any time!!...Kisses handsome friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Mr Koda MD said...

Boy oh Boy, I didn't realise how Majestically HUGE you are Mr Rumbles!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Rumbles, yoo are Action-Cat for sure! MOL!

the casbah kitten said...

We've heard of those but Momma says "no way!" because we race around and crash into furniture and break stuff NOW. . . . so what would we do with an evil lazer dot??

Huffle Mawson said...

After you catch you red dot, come over here and catch mine!

Ginger Jasper said...

Wow you are fast. I like to chase my red dot but I am not as fast as you by a long way.. You rock.. Hugs GJ xx

Katnip Lounge said...

Rumbles!
You are a BIG boy!
We know where the red dot is...it lives in the drawer of Mommy's endtable. Come over and play!
um...Johnny wants to know just how much you weigh...he's worried you might've outdone him. He's 18 pounds.

Cory said...

I got mad at my red bug...it NEVER lets me catch it. No fair!!! It's fun watching you try...

Purrrrr....

Sagira said...

Wow, you are at turbo speed.

My brother Harley (he is a dog) likes to chase the lights to.

Daisy said...

That red dot is very, very sneaky. I thought you were going to climb up the wall after it!

William said...

Rumbles, I hope you got a treat after that workout!

Fin said...

So THAT'S where Dot goes!!

marley said...

AttieCattie said...
