A few months ago, Max lost his favorite cat toy, which was also the only one he bothered to play with. Since he promptly commenced pestering me to play with him, I promptly commenced the search for a new toy he would play with. After spending around $40 on all kinds of fancy (and not-so-fancy) cat toys that he didn’t bother to touch, I finally found something that met his approval:
A plastic shower curtain ring. The kind that are $1.50 for a 12-pack. Well, at least it will be easy to replace when he loses one under the sofa, or the TV stand, or in the Recycle bin – the most likely fate of his previous toy.
He likes to bat them around the apartment
And when he really gets going, he chases it under and around his packing paper (warning: video – click to play)
