Caturday Confession: I have a fetish

Hi, this is Marzipan.

I will admit it, I really seem to like bags lately. My Mommy could give me mouse toys, scratchers, strings and even treats... But I am always itching for a bag to crawl into. It does not even matter what kind. Paper bag, lunch bag, recycled bag, money bags... My favorite is a plastic bag. Since we are not allowed to play with plastic bags unsupervised, I try to make the most of my plastic bag time. Call me an oddball, I know. I just love them bags! I even crawl inside my Mommy's duffel bag when she is filling it up for work, but she catches me every time and then I have to get out.

First I like to inspect the bag to see how stretchy it is. I also like to check for the width and length of the handles. This is impurrtant if you like to wear your bag. I do not like my wear my bag. It also should not matter if the bag is on it's side or upside down, you can always find a way into a bag very easily. This one just so happened to be upright and made for easy access. 

When you get into the bag there is endless things that you can do. You can taste it and try to figure out what or who was in the bag before you were. It might help to nom on it for more flavor. Biting is good for the crinkle effect. Crinkle effects will enhance the expurrience.

Sometimes a bag is a good place to be in if you need to gather your thoughts and reflect. Just remember... It is your bag, your time. Do whatever feels natural.

A bag is a good place for cleaning

Depending on the size of your bag, you can share it with someone. I prefurr not to do this, but I will make an exception for Henry sometimes. Afterall, he is only 6.6 lbs so I can still do most of the mentioned above with him in there. And if I change my mind at any given moment I can kick him right out of there and he can get his own bag.

 Mama will not share her bag. But that is okay. It is her bag, her time.

PLEASE remember to be safe when playing with bags, especially plastic ones. You should never play with them unless you have been given permission. And you should always be supervised.


  1. We like bags too, but seldom get a chance to get in one.

  11. Hey, Marzipan. We don't get much chance to play with plastic bags, but our Dad lets us play with paper bags when he gets one. Billy White Shoes thinks they are great fun to hide in. The rest of us just crush them and sleep on them, so they usually don't last very long.

  12. Hi kitties! Its nice to meet you! We love bags and our mom folds over the opening to the brown paper ones so they stay open. Then they last a real long time. Until Oui Oui chews them, at least! We have a giveaway (until midnight tonight EST) to celebrate our gotcha day, so you might want to stop by!

  17. Disco and Brighton like bags, but Disco is kinda large to fit in them, mostly they just lick and chew when Teri comes home from the grocery store...then they disappear! What fun is that? She said bags can lead to vet visits, so we guess she's watching out for us, just like your hu-mans!
