Weekend Cat Blogging - the whole gang
Ywette, proving that she still has what it takes
My cats have a new toy. Their well-trained human (me) bought them a Da Bird wand cat toy, on Ebay, and they are very enthusiastic about it. They all absolutely love it, but Hamlet doesn't like playing near the girls, so he decided to nap in his not-so-well-trained human's box of dvd:s, that are ultimately heading for the attic. (Any week now...)

The feathers move quite much like an actual bird, so the cats get a real hunting kick out of this one. They train their eye-paw coordination, and you can get them to run and jump - a real workout!

This is a brilliant toy to exercise your cats, so definitely get this if your kitty is on the chubby side. Or just needs more fun! It takes little effort for the human, but it's not something they can play with on their own, so you will have to interact. Which is why you have a pet in the first place, yes?
These toys are also recommended if you have a shy cat, who won't let you come very close. It's a great way to play gently with them, without scaring them. Well, not a problem with my kitties, but I hope this is useful advice for someone.
