Cat Quest Contest

I received this great cat toy at few weeks ago that cats are supposed to love! Mom was so excited to get something that would let me get some exercise while playing.

Mom put the toy together and gave me the chance to check it out. There is this beautiful dragonfly on the end of a cord.

I began checking out the dragonfly because it had this cute little yellow ball on the end and the dragonfly was swinging on the end of the cord.


However, as soon as Mom pressed the button, I ran to the back of the house. The noise (although quiet) and the fluttering scared me. Mom thought I would get used to it, but everytime she turns it on, I run. I guess I am one of those unique kitties that doesn't like it. We decided that this great toy shouldn't go wasted, so we are going to draw a name from all of my commenters today and send the Cat Quest cat toy to you.

Here is a description of the toy. Good luck to everyone today. We'll draw a name tomorrow and announce the winner on Wednesday.

Crazy Cat - Cat Quest Motorized Cat Toy by Cardinal Laboratories Inc.

Cat Quest! Gives your cat a chance to hone his/her hunting skills! Cats can stealthily seek and sneak up on their prey, pounce, jump and bat away at the dragon fly! Cats will use their brains to calculate trajectories, anticipate movement and plan their attack! Bug motion drives cats crazy.

Battery operated cat toy
Wings move like real bugs
2 AAA batteries included
Ages 8+
Bug with attached cord
Wand sections fit together
Battery chamber cover

You can manipulate the bug; let it perch silently and suddenly start fluttering its wings. You can make it take off and fly. You can move it slowly while your cat prepares to pounce! The cord is long enough that you can stay hidden if you choose. Don't allow your cat to chew on or swallow the bug.

That sure looks like a pretty nifty toy! It's too bad it sceered you, Praline.

Nothing sceers my Domino, but Dylan can be kinda skittish. Dante's just rather laidback.

Gracie said...

That toy looks really pretty and a lot of fun but I bet that noise that it makes is better to run away from. Be careful. Tell your mom to get another toy that is quiet. I have a strobe light that I chase around. It is fast and nice and quiet. You can buy it at Wallmart in the cat toy department.

Sorry about the noise Praline, we have that toy on our wish list, although Arjuna will probably be scared of it.

Our Aunt Tiff bought us a toy ball that rolls around and has feathers. It took us a while to get used to the whirring noise too. Sorry our football team beat up on your football team Saturday. But we'll be pulling for you against Florida.

Lorianna said...

Oh poor Praline, I'm sorry you were "scairt"! Mommy Paula meant well. Isn't it funny when we think a cat will like something, they don't?
Mine do it with food. Then I say, "You're such a cat!" :)
You are very nice to share your toy Praline.
Big Hugs,
Lorianna

That toy looks like lots of fun. I have caught real dragonflies sometimes down by the pond, but because they are big, their wings stick out of the side of my mouth and buzz like crazy when I take them back to mum.
