Tequila and my brother’s cat, Tommy, tried out the new Crazy Cat Cat Quest toy recently. It’s a pretty cool fishing rod type toy but instead of having a fluffy toy dangling from the end, this one has an animated dragonfly attached. The really fun part is that it’s battery operated and, and by pushing a little button on the handle, the wings on the dragonfly actually flutter.
Tequila’s favorite pastime is chasing a string or laser toy around so even though she liked the dragonfly, it was a bit different than what she really enjoys. It took her a little while to get into it, but once she did, she was pretty mesmerized by the dragonfly. She even seemed interested in it when it stopped moving. Tommy on the other hand absolutely loved it! It didn’t take him long at all to go from couch potato kitty to stealth hunter mode. He’s more interested in toys like this in general so this was right up his alley! It’s definitely a toy that has to be put out of reach from him when it’s not playtime, because he would do his best to demolish it otherwise.
Both kitties give it a paws up and say it’s great fun and good exercise…and it lets them practice their hunting (and catching!) skills.
