Here’s a thought: the photo is of Abishag’s favorite toy, her battered but realistic, soft plastic katydid. (It’s also Ira’s favorite toy when Abishag wants it. Plan ahead – get two of everything if you have two cats.) It’s from the kids’ toy section, where you can find huge flies, spiders, bugs and aliens which I hope your cat/cats enjoy as much.
Kezia the Beautiful had a tiny toy dinosaur that she and a handy human played ‘fetch’ with frequently. A very talented little lady.
Do they play with their toys for their amusement or our engagement?
Crinkle balls and blue man are popular out this way.
