Why I Don't Buy Cat Toys

When offered cat toys at a dog event, I accepted. Surely Dewey Kitty would enjoy playing with them. Maybe I could even entice Louie Cat to play.

The toy was one of the classics: a wand with an elastic string attached to a feathered, stuffed, pink and green creature. I'm sure it was designed to provide hours of fun and stimulate the cat's hunting instinct. 

When I dangled the creature in front of Dewey Kitty, he snagged it with his paw and I quickly pulled it away from him.

The second time I cast the creature toward him, he grabbed the creature and bit the elastic string. Within seconds, he'd chewed the string in two and was trotting away with the creature in his mouth.

  1. My cats do this too. I gave up on store bought cat toys. They prefer broken hair ties instead.

    I love reading your little snippets of farm life. :)
