Furball’s pals, Brooke and Tim, were kind enough to send Furball a Great Green Cat Toy to play with. When it arrived, Furball was ever the curious cat and immediately came over to investigate.
Who wouldn’t be interested? The Great Green Cat Toy is not your typical cat toy stuffed full of catnip. Instead, it’s an imaginative structure that challenges your cat’s natural instincts to explore, stalk and pounce.
In a nutshell, this cat toy consists of a large tube with a paw-sized window to reach three wooden balls inside. What makes it different from other “peek and paw” toys is that the entire toy moves when your cat plays with it.
So, instead of sitting still on the floor, when your cat interacts with the Great Green Cat Toy, it rolls and rotates, causing the wooden balls to come in and out of view. Purrfect for a cat’s hunting instincts.
The Great Green Cat Toy is also eco-friendly. It’s made from recycled and reusable materials, is completely recyclable and is 90% biodegradable. As well, the labels are printed on 100% recycled paper with soy based inks. And, to top it off, it’s made in the USA, crafted with love from Brooke and Tim.
As with all cat toys, you never know what your cat is going to like and unfortunately, Furball was not a gracious receiver of Brooke and Tim’s gift. He gave the Great Green Cat Toy an inspection and then creeped away from it.
Furball tends to be a little intimidated by cat toys that are bigger than a small rodent, so maybe this cat toy was just too big for him. Given some time, I’m pretty sure he would have had warmed up to it, especially when he gets into his crazy play mode. However, what makes the Great Green Cat Toy look like fun for a cat also makes it fun for a toddler, so I had to put the toy away.
If your cat’s not a fraidy cat and you don’t have a curious toddler, it’s worth checking out this toy because I’ve seen other cats really enjoy playing and wrestling with it. Here’s a video of a cat having fun with the Great Green Cat Toy.
