The Tooth Fairy War Drags On

So in response to last week’s plea to the tooth fairy from Cora for a toy for her cat, she found this on Friday –

Dear Cora:

Thanks for yesterday’s note; what an exciting day you had! How scary to have lost Satin’s tooth, but how wonderful that your AMAZING mother found it again!

It sounds like you’ve got quite a playful kitten there, who likes to nibble and scratch at her toys – even if her “toys” are your toes! Unfortunately, a tooth fairy only has gold coins to give out, and I don’t think Satin would be very entertained by those. But I bet you have everything you need to make an awesome cat toy right in your own home!

Ask your mom to let you go outside and cut some catnip from your herb garden. Then tear it up into tiny pieces and stuff it into one of your old, too-small socks. Tie it shut and throw it to Satin and watch her totally forget about your toesies!

Good luck – I’ll see you soon, when you lose a tooth!


Your tooth fairy

I didn’t mention the note to Cora, but later in the morning I went outside to do some pruning in the herb garden, and walked in with an armful of herbs to dry.

Including catnip.

“Hey, guys, I had to cut the catnip back, so I brought some extra in to dry. Do you think we’ll find a use for it?”

Cora looked at me, startled. “Oh, that reminds me! I got a note from the tooth fairy and she said -“

And we were off and making a cat toy.

Not my first rodeo, kid.
