Scratching post which functions as pointless, odd kitchen decor: $24
Catnip spray intended to entice Momma to use scratching post: $6
Various cat toys purchased and ignored over four years' time: ~$200+/-
Children's gloves she actually plays with: $1
Bonus ironies include:
1. These may well be the only pair of matching gloves in the house.
2. They are at least ten years old.
3. If I happened to decide to wear these gloves, one of them would immediately become invisible.~~GH
