Cat Santa Hats Bring Festive Cheer

Posted by | 0 comments

If there’s one thing that’s hard to resist at Christmas time, it’s dressing up your cat in a lovely Santa hat.

I’ve done it so many times now and the novelty still doesn’t wear off, the little kitties look so cute in that red and white hat. You can even get some that include a white fluffy beard or a lacy ruff, making for an even better picture for the family album.

Just make sure that the hat fits properly and the elastic isn’t too tight, and if your kitty really doesn’t like it then please take it off. Otherwise, have fun!

Catit Senses Play Circuit

Posted by | 0 comments

The Catit Senses range is a group of products aimed at stimulating and entertaining your cat. The range forms a sort of playground with different toys to play with, each providing different textures, surfaces and sensations for your cat. Some of the products even allow you to add catnip to liven up your cat even more (assuming they’re the sort of cat that responds to catnip).

Catit Senses Play Circuit

One of the products is the Catit Senses Play Cicruit, a cat ball track much like the Bergan Turbo track. Made up of a series of hollow plastic tubes, the play circuit holds a ball that can roll up and down the inside of the tube. There are slits and gaps along the sides of the tubes which are just the right size for an inquisitive paw to poke through, allowing kitty to give a palyful swipe at the ball as it rolls past.

As with so many cat toys, how much fun the Catit Senses track will offer depends very much on how energetic or curious your cat is, but if you don’t try these things you’ll never know what your cats will think.

Both Arthur and Kitty took a little while to get used to it, as they didn’t immediately realise they could poke their paws into the tubes. In this respect the Bergan Turbo track is better, as it’s open-top track makes it easier to get at the ball.

However, with some gentle tuition Arthur and Kitty soon got to grips with it and they loved it. Arthur, being a lively fellow, would just go bonkers chasing the ball up and down the tube, bashing it from end to end. Kitty, on the other hand, likes to take a more thoughtful approach and she would give the ball a spirited whack and then wait for it to roll back to her.

They both seemed to get more enjoyment when the track was laid out in a single wavey line rather than in a circuit. This is helped by the end pieces which have a sharp incline that sends the ball rolling back in the direction it came from.

To see the Catit Senses track in action check out the video below. This isn’t Arthur or Kitty, just a video I found on Youtube, but it shows how much fun can be had .

One great way of enhancing the circuit is to add different ball toys. With Arthur and Kitty I found that adding a ball with a bell in it was particularly appealing. Either that or they just found it really annoying and wanted to stop the ringing, but either way they bashed away at the ringing ball more than they did the plain ones that came with the circuit.

The tubes are quite strong and can easily cope with the chewing and scratching of an eager cat. In fact there’s very little you can say against the Catit Senses Play Circuit, it does exactly what it says on the box and does it well.

I bought my Catit Senses circuit from Amazon for just $18.99 where I got their usual speedy delivery service.

SmartCat Tick Tock Teaser

Posted by | 0 comments

I’ve already looked at the SmartCat Peek and Play toy box and this is another quality item from the same company. Called the Tick Tock Teaser it uses the same lovely wooden construction but features a bit more variety in the toys on offer.

SmartCat Tick Tock Teaser

As you can it’s a vertical triangle and it features three fun kitty toys, all attached to a single pole that’s hinged in the middle. At one end is a wand with some tassles, at the other end is a stuffed mouse, and in the middle, partially obscured inside a hole, is a ball.

The pole works just like a musical metronome and moves back and forth on its axis. As kitty bashes a toy it will swing away and then bounce back again. Also, as one of the toys move so do the other two, giving kitty a choice of three moving targets to play with. Down the sides of the Tick Tock Teaser are additional holes, allowing kitty to wave her paws around inside to try and catch the moving toys.

It’s another nicely built toy from SmartCat, with nice smooth wood and no nasty edges. One thing I would recommend is loosening the fastening screws for the wand to let it move a little more freely, it’s got quite a stiff action straight out of the box.

Both of my cats played with this, although it has to be said that Arthur got a lot more fun out of it than Kitty did. But then Arthur does like bashing things while Kitty is more thoughtful!

SmartCat Peek And Play Toy Box

Posted by | 0 comments

Cats love sticking their paws in holes, and the Smartcat Toy Box has got lots of them to choose from!

SmartCat Peek And Play Cat Toy Box

It’s essentially a wooden box with holes cut into it, into which you can drop balls, treats, pom-poms … anything really. The idea is that your cat will then try to fish out the items or just have fun knocking them around through the holes.

It’s a simple idea for a kitty toy but sometimes that’s the best thing. The box is very nicely made from pale wood, with no rough edges for waving paws to pick up splinters. I think it really looks quite smart and is strong enough to last for years.
