(Also sold under the name Cat Dancer Original Action Cat Toy)
With two cats who never, ever get to go outside, I am often looking for things to keep them busy so that the boy cat doesn't torment the girl cat out of sheer boredom, as he is wont to do. But as anyone with a feline friend can attest, cat toys are stupid and expensive and they break the second your cat sees you take it out of the bag. That, or it leaves feathers, glitter and fuzz all over the place. Or it makes ten tons of noise.
The Cat Dancer Toy is just this: A spring steel wire with rolled cardboard on the ends. One end has more cardboard than the other, which means when you hold the light end, the heavy end bobs up and down. And your cats will go fucking bananas. They won't know how to control themselves they will be so full of hunting prowess and glee.
Best part: You don't have to do shit. Just sit there and hold one end. You don't even have to wriggle your wrist, I'm serious. You just hold one end (or jam it into the door, whatever) and watch your cats GO TO TOWN. Endless leaping and frolicking about.
Here's all the amazing pluses for this badass cat toy:
- Won't break. Like, ever.
- No noise.
- No flying detritus of fuzz, feather, sequins or whathaveyou.
- Lazy owners need only hold this thing in one hand while they read, eat, whittle, whatever.
- Super-duper cheap, not $45.99 like every other cat toy.
- Rascally cats love it.
For real, if you have a cat and don't have this simple, Amish-y cat toy, then you are a bad kitty parent and deserve to have your animals taken away from you.
