My search for the perfect cat toy continues. Mom buys me tons of toys, which I enjoy for a few days before getting bored. The toys of yesterday lay forgetten until mom puts them away. If she brings them out, I throw them in her face- no, just kidding- I just look at them with a mild expression. If mom shakes them in front of me, I will give a polite sniff, then stare at her. My feline feather flyer that I was so excited about several months ago very rarely makes me jump now. I have figured out that the laser dot is not alive, and I won't chase it anymore.
There are a few toys that have had staying power. I still bat around the rattling fur mice. I run and leap if mom throws them for me. I still love my big stuffed ferret/stoat and will wrestle and rabbit kick it, and carry it around.
And now for my newest toy. Mom is surprised and hopeful. She bought me a fishing fly toy, and I am crazy for it. It's a real deer hair fishing fly with the hook cut off and glue put on the end so it's not sharp there. I LOVE IT. I have been playing with it every day for a solid week with no signs of boredom. I leap and flip and twist to catch it. It is AWESOME. Because it is a wand toy with a line/cord, mom won't leave me alone with it, and puts it away for safety in the zippered cat toy bag she has. I KNOW IT'S IN THERE. Every night this week mom has heard me pawing at the bag and trying to stuff my face into the zipper trying to open it. I WANT THAT TOY. When she gets up to feed me at 5:30a she takes it out and plays for a couple minutes before putting it away to get some more sleep. When she gets up for work she takes it out to play for 15 more minutes. I start purring when I see her unzip the bag. When she gets home from work, I start pawing at the bag again. She takes it out and I will play all night if she is willing. The toy is already getting beat up with the deer hairs coming out. Mom doesn't want it to fall apart completely and me to eat the parts, which would be dangerous, but I still want to play. Give me my toy! Mom wants to get some more fishing flies so she can make them into toys. So far, this is an awesome toy. Two paws up for fishing fly toys!

That toy sounds like fun! You might want to try the "Cat Catcher" by Go Cat~ it has a little mouse made of deer hair, and we go crazy for it ;)
That sounds like a pawsome toy! Mousies are my favorite but Mama will have to check out this toy!

My favorite toys change from day to day. I used to like the big grey mouse,then I liked my scratching board,then I liked the leopard print mouse with the velcro belly pouch full of Catnip,now I like the rug in front of the futon! Fishing Fly Toy? Dad ties fishing flies! Maybe he can make me a toy! Hmmm....
that toy sounds like a lot of fun!!
I would like that one too!
Sounds like a fun toy!
Our faves are still the realistic looking fur mice, some are ripped to shreds, and when a new one comes out to replace a 'dead' one, sometimes we still go for the old hunks of fur...Meowmy once tied some large feathers together, annd we had a lot of fun with that...Maybe because there are 2 of us, we tend to have a different play style than a single kitty.
Hope your having a pawtastic day being COTD!
