Product Review: Temptations Snacky Mouse

Happy Sunday everyone! We’ve been watching lots and lots of football. Some of my favorite teams did badly this weekend. But the Broncos won!

We got a real goody to review from Chewy.com this month – the Temptations Snacky Mouse. It’s a little mouse you open up to put treats in. The you play with the mouse and the treats fall out so you can eat them. It comes with a little bag of treats to get you started.20150805_203215We’ve had similar treat releasing toys and didn’t like them. They were hard to load, or difficult to tip over, or all the treats fell out at once. Not the Snacky Mouse! It was easy to tip, but the treats don’t all fall out at once. And it’s small enough to bat around so it’s fun to play with even when it’s empty.

We weren’t too interested in the treats that came with the mouse. We had a whole lot of Friskies Party Mix we’d ordered from Chewy in our last food order. Those were purrfect! They fit in the Snacky Mouse just fine, and we love to eat them.20150805_203705 2Snacky Mouse was a hit with all three of us. Let me tell you, that usually doesn’t happen around here!

So to sum up, the Snacky Mouse itself is a big hit but the treats that came with it weren’t. But since other treats fit in there, the mouse is gonna get a lot of use in this house. Mom fills it every morning before she leaves for work. It’s always empty when she gets home. Snacky Mouse gets 4 paws up from each of us!

That’s it for today. Have a great week everyone!

Another Easy on Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone! Got some fun pictures for you today.

Here’s something mom thought she’d never see – me and Candy gettin’ our easy on together! We never spend time together. 20150808_172911Mom’s jaw about dropped when Candy got up on the chair with me and I didn’t get down. She couldn’t get the camera fast enough! We just both wanted the chair so we decided to call a detente. MOL

You’ve heard me talk about EK’s funny ear. He looks like a typical dilute orange tabby. His markings are pretty symmetrical except for his left ear. That ear is what made mom fall in love with him. How funny is that? She finally got a good picture of it.20150803_182307Isn’t that cute? Couldn’t you just nibble it?

I got one last pic for you. We’ve been getting lots of packages – mostly kitty food and litter and stuff to review. We love packages cuz that means boxes and crinkly paper. We love boxes and crinkly paper!20150715_223601Mom eventually moved the everything to the living room. She let us play with them for about three weeks until she got tired of the mess we were making with the paper. Yesterday, she put all the crinkly paper and boxes in the recycling so she could clean up and vacuum. We were upset at first but then we remembered that new boxes and paper will show up with the next food shipment. I guess we could do without for a while.

That’s it for today. Have a great week everyone!

Product Review – KONG Active Cat Play Mat

Happy Sunday everyone! I had a pawsome twitter adventure yesterday with my hubby, Henry (@quadpawd). We had a picnic and a helicopter ride over Rocky Mountain National Park. I’d show you pictures, but I forgot to ask him if I could use his pictures in my blog. It was really amazing!

20150707_184837This month, we’re reviewing something different that we got for free from Chewy.com. Usually we get food or treats. This month we got a toy – the Kong Active Play Mat. It’s got sisal on one side for scratching, a soft side for napping, tassels on the corner for chewing on and playing with, and it makes crinkly noises.

20150707_185016I had to check it out right away. The sisal didn’t interest me much though. Eventually, mom turned it over to the soft side and I napped on it, but she couldn’t get a picture of that. I kept getting up every time she tried to take my picture. She hasn’t noticed me playing with it much either. Just napping on it.

20150707_185040Candy checked it out too, but she didn’t seem furry interested in it at all. That was kind of surprising cuz it makes crinkly noises and she loves crinkly brown wrapping paper. Mom thought the crinkles would be a big hit with her.

 

EK never checked it out. Even though he loves sisal, he never even sniffed the mat. So it was a big dud in his world. Just goes to show, you never know what a kitty will or won’t like. So I guess you can say it gets a paws up from me as a napping mat (and you can’t have too many napping places), but paws down from everyone as a toy.

That’s it for today. Have a great week everyone!
