Pink Cat’s Favourite Things

My comfy and cozy giant ______1_______.

My super soft fuzzy _____3_______, these are a few of my favourite things.

My ____4________ that I love to hide in.
My _____5________ where I sit with a grin.
My _____6________ that also can sing, these are a few of my favourite things.

My trendy ____7________ that I fill with catnip.
My ______8______ that I wear on each trip.
My ______9_______ with one broken wing, these are a few of my favourite things.
