Friskies Pull’n Play #MostPlayfulCat Pets

I don’t know about your cats, but my kitties go into hibernation mode in the winter. Maybe it is the lack of fresh air from open windows, or maybe because we all are a little slower and less active in the winter months.

To beat the family’s winter blues, I make sure the kids participate in activities to burn off lots of energy, but often we forget that our cats as well need stimulation and exercise to stay happy and healthy. Purina has come out with an amazing toy to do just that, the Friskies Pull’n Play, to get them off the couch (or out of the clean laundry basket).

The wobbly cat toy combines treats with exercise into one cute little package. The tender strings are fun for the cats to try to catch and chew, and as the toy wobbles back-and-forth Friskies Party Mix treats are dispensed out the side.

    We have 6 cats so they kinda keep themselves entertained but we do have a big basket of toys for them to play with. Sometimes when we come downstairs in the mornings the entire basket is empty & the toys are everywhere.
    We have a couple fishing rod type toys for them as well but we’ve had to replace the strings on them with satin ribbon because they try to steal them to chew the strings off when we’re finished playing with them.

  66. Danielle Says: March 9, 2016 at 7:32 pm
