Packages From Near and Far

Happy Sunday efurryone! My Sunday started out perfect. All three of us kitties snuggled in bed with mom for a really long time while she finished a book she was reading. It must have been a big book cause it took hours and hours to read. Plus there were scritches and games of ‘chase mom’s fingers under the blankie’. It was lovely.

Now for my excitement this weekend. I got two packages – one from nearby and one from very far away. The first package was the one from far away. It came all the way from New Zealand from my furriend @rumblepurr.

See at the top? It says “New Zealand Post” Isn’t that pawsome?

Of course I had to inspect the package furry carefully before I let Mom open it for me.

Sniff, Sniff. I can smell Rumblefamily on it. Cool.

Wait ’til you see what was inside. It was a kiwi. It even made kiwi noises. Isn’t it cute? There was also a lovely card from @rumblepurrand a little finger puppet.

Getting acquainted.

The other box was from Nip and Bones. It had the snail and dental chew toys I ordered with my #pawpawty prize gift certificate, and also a surprise!

See the purple, green, and white fringy thing? That’s a Go Cat Go Spiky Ball! I didn’t buy it, but it’s not a present, either. I got it for a furry special reason.  Baby Patches selected me to be one of her toy testers! I’m so excited about that. We get toys to test and right a review about. Of course, I don’t get paid to do reviews. I do them because I want to help Baby Patches and Nip and Bones find just the right stuff fur us to buy.

Well Baby Patches knows how much I like to play fetch, so she thought I’d be the purrfect cat to test out the Spiky Ball to see if Nip and Bones should carry it. We have thirty days to play with and review the toys, but I didn’t need thirty days. I’ve hardly stopped playing with since mom took it off the card for me. Candy and EK like it, too.

Here are the pros and cons, pros first:
It flies well when mom throws it.
It’s nice and soft to bite into so I can carry it easily.
It’s light enough to bat around and toss in the air.
It’s big enough to fight with and almost big enough to bunny kick.
It slides really well on the wood floors.

cons:
It doesn’t bounce well.
It’s too big to go under the door to play door hockey.

As you can see, the con list is really short.

Here’s a video of me playing with it:

That’s my review of the Spiky Ball. I would highly recommend it for any cat that likes to play fetch or chase, or likes toys they can carry around in their mouth easily.

Even though these aren’t toys that were sent for testing, later in the week I’ll do a review of the toys we ordered. One we liked, the other we ignored. Check back later in the week to find out which was which. MOL Have a good week efurryone!
