Cat Toy Review

This installment of Cat Toy Review (easily our lamest feature here at LwB) came about because I discovered that there's actually a company devoted to making the Cat Dancer. Yes, in the heart of Wisconsin, is Cat Dancer Products.

I mean it's a length of wire - three feet of oil-tempered 20 gauge spring steel, their site helpfully explains - with some rolled up paper on the end. I figured someone came up with the idea decades ago and, by now, they were all being produced in generic factories somewhere overseas. Apparently not. Huh.

Well, whether this is the sort of thing you can build a company around or not, there's no denying that it's Leela's favorite toy. She hauls hers around with her - we never know where we'll find it next. And she just basically loves it. The poor thing's been shredded. There's a grand total of one piece of the original paper left and we've had to put masking tape on the ends as a target. Witness its horrible state.

I'm not too sure about the "improvements" they've tried to make to the original. Like the one with a catnip mouse at one end. Eh. But the original's great. I can't figure out why we haven't just gone ahead and gotten her a new one. They're $3.00 people! ($4.00 Canadian - maybe that's why.)

So not much of a surprise here, but Cat Dancer, highly recommended.
