This is what happens when you don't clean under the fridge for a while.

I'd been vaguely aware that we'd been supplying Penny with new puffy balls as the old ones mysteriously disappeared for, um, a while, but I hadn't realized it was quite this bad.

Final tally:

53 puffy balls
two crunchy foil balls
three sparkly tinsel balls
one pom pom of unknown origin
a toy mouse
a catnip bag

that's amazing! but on the upside, you probably won't need to buy new cat toys for a while!

Wow! Years ago when we moved and cleaned behind our couch, we discovered about a two dozen socks that our dog had managed to hoard. Pets.

When a repair guy came to work on our stove/oven, he was kind of surprised to find a half dozen Ping-Pong balls and a couple of highlighter markers (plus the inevitable toy mice). Ping-pong balls were my cats' favorite toy for about a year. :)

That is a fantastic distribution. Coming from a stats person. I could totally turn that into an intro stats example problem.

Much like the secret graveyard of the elephants, you've found the secret burial ground for your cat's poofy balls. Such a historic archaeological find merits chocolate. Or something.

Haha! That's awesome and pretty impressive. My cats have never stashed that much, but my ferrets did. I had no idea until I pulled out cushions of the couch and cleaned under the fridge. Sneaky critters.

Jack is indifferent to most toys, but my sister's cat loves fur mice and hides them under the piano.
