Christmas for The Crew


So a while back we went shopping for the kitties.  My husband picked up a few things for the kitties (I usually buy the toys so this was fun for him) and then 'hid' them from them until Christmas (don't want them seeing what they were getting before they got it - cause they could so tell what it was by what was on the outside of the box right??)

Not completely sure toys were necessary as the boxes and wrapping and tissue were so much fun for them, but it's always fun to find new stimulation for The Crew..



As you can see the FroliCat Pounce garnered a bit of attention.  It is a once piece unit that takes three double A batteries.  You turn it on, and it automatically turns itself off after 10 minutes but you can shut it off manually if you wish.  The first three speeds are kind of boring.  They simply make the yellow mouse go around the track at slightly faster speeds. The fourth speed is 'variable' and it makes the mouse go forward and back and 'hide' in the three domes.  They didn't care about it until it went on variable mode.  Eli (who showed up after that last photo) finally pounced on the mouse and held it for so long others were losing interest so I had to shoo him away..

Sadly this thing doesn't help them get a lot of exercise, but I do see it as mental stimulation so I will keep it and pull it out from time to time to give them something different to do.

They have yet to show any interest in the snuggle sack, but that's OK.. if they don't want it I am sure the foster kittens will love it.

  1. The FroliCat looks like an updated version of "undercover mouse" -- or a variation of. I wonder if my boys would be interested. Great gifts for them, I think. And yes, the kittens, at least, will love the sack.

    BTW, since nope, no one noticed that I moved things around at work, I guess I can't say I'm a "rebel." LOL. Just goes to show how much nonsense is spouted about not touching this or that or doing x, y, z on ones' own.

    1. Oh no, you are a rebel Kea, just because they didn't notice doesn't mean you aren't one :) or maybe they are just going with plausible deniability..

  6. How funny that we got the FroliCat too for Christmas! Thanks for the tip on the highest speed - you are right, it is a little boring at the slower speeds.

  7. I had been wondering about the FroliCat Pounce. I think I'll give it a try. Ruby likes the Turbotrack type toys, so I think she will probably like this one.

  8. We saw that Sparkle had gotten the FroliCat, too, and we hadn't noticed it before that. Our cousins love the undercover mouse, so this might be a great alternative to try.

  9. Head over to Ingrid King's blog today and check out Cat's Meow. Bet it is better than the FrolicCat toy and is probably MUCH less expensive!

  14. what fun....

    we have seen those sacks before but mom is afraid no one here would use it since it would be a set up for being pounced on by someone else.
