My wife and I spent this weekend in Washington D.C. checking out the zoo and the various museums and whatnot. It was the first time we've ever left our youngest cats by themselves since we got them (don't worry, their grandparents came by to check on them) so we were a little nervous that they would have some sort of meltdown and destroy everything we own. Luckily for us they seemed to keep it together for the most part, and proved my theory that they save their worst behavior for when they have a human audience. I suppose it is more effective that way, but it didn't stop us from thoroughly inspecting the house just to be sure that they didn't hide poop in our shoes.
This picture is pretty much how I expected them all to look when they realized we weren't coming back that first night. Joe Ledbetter has decided to self produce his own toy and this gigantic Fire Cat is the result. It stands an impressive 11 inches tall, is limited to 400 pieces, and goes on sale this Thursday at 8am Pacific time for only $99. Now how on earth did he manage to make a figure that big and keep the price reasonable? Is he a secret wizard?
