Something to Chew on

What a sweet face!
This morning while I was in that zone between sleep and awake I heard Ray say, "What are you chewing on?"  That probably should have given me a shot of adrenalin to awaken me into action.  But instead I continued with my slumber.  It wasn't until later in the day that I found out what happened.

My friend, Rae, had the kind of stylus that you can click and it becomes a pen.  She used it all of the time because the chemo treatments had caused her finger tips to be numb.  After using hers, I realized that I'd like a similar stylus and so I ordered a few on line.  They are really inexpensive, so I got the variety pack with different colors.
Here is the variety pack.  There should be a
bronze color one, too.  Ary probably
has dragged it to his chewing den.

Back to today:  Ray asked me if I had heard Ary chewing on something this morning. 

"No, but I heard you saying something about chewing and I just thought it was part of a dream," was my reply.

"Well, I hate to tell you, but Ary chewed your stylus...broke it into pieces."

"At least it was not your glasses like he did last time.  The replacement cost is nil compared to your weird prescription eye glasses," I replied.

Ary has chewed the stylus to pieces.

You can see the teeth marks.

I was able to repair it!

 Ary, our cat, the one we adopted a year ago along with his sister, Molly......Ary is a chewer.  He likes plastic items, but his favorite chew toys are eyeglasses.   We first found this out when he chewed Ray's glasses beyond fixing and we had to fork out over $400 to replace them.  We try to keep all glasses tucked away, but sometimes he finds my reading glasses.  Those are no problem because I have a number of pairs in various places and replacement cost is not bad.

I have had puppies that chew, but never a cat.  I guess I should be thankful that Ary doesn't like to chew on leather or wood.

  1. Ary sounds so much like Dustin. He is also a chewer. And of course he chews anything he is not suppose to.
