Bobby grooms Callie

Took this today, Jan 5. Bobby, our stray adoptee from last year, our sleek panther (he's now a "teenager") and our new stray adoptee Callie (calico, 6 mos), on the bed. Callie's been a member of the family for about 2 months.

Bobby's grooming Callie, and it's so loving and delightful that I wanted to share. Also note how our bed is totally taken over by the cats. Upper left corner, the huge mouse called a "Bucky" which is one of the best cat toys ever. They can hold it with their paws and bite and use their rear claws at the same time. And it's heavy fabric, no way it can be ripped, and also filled with catnip. Yummm

Now it seems that we'll have to buy a 2nd sofa, too. The current one is all taken up:

The toy is actually called "Bucko" -- I got it wrong at first. It's the best darn toy ever.

First, it's huge. Cats lie on it as a bed or pillow, and they can hold it in their front claws and teeth and rake it with their hind claws.

And it's impossible to damage -- no metal parts, none of the "vanity" junk that's added to bad quality cat toys to make the humans like them. As you know, feathers and riffle trim can harm a cat's digestion. But this Bucko is made for cats. It's thick and padded, and the tail is a tightly woven cord without any metal connections. The inside of the Bucko is also filled with high grade organic catnip.

And no, I don't sell them, ha ha. I'm just passing on the name. My old cats always had a Bucko and they loved them.

Katdad,
Where do you find those?
I'd love to get a couple of them at least!

Some vets carry them and you can order them online. I'm not sure whether they're in the large pet supply stores like PetCo or not.

Another great mouse, a little cube of hard felt, is the "Tuffy" mouse -- it's just squarish and has a thick cord for a tail. Zero frills which cats don't care about anyway and zero pieces to break off and swallow. Tuffy mouses are small but are also cat faves.

Hey katdad!

I was wondering... is the toy in the link I post below the one you are referring to? Jasper loves toys that he can play with in the manner you described (grabbing/kicking with hind legs) so I'd love to get him one of these things!

The Cat Connection Bucko Catnip Toy

Thanks!
