Ringo in a small ball

Sometimes Ringo will curl himself into a little ball, and it's adorable. I can rarely get a photo (because he gets up) but I finally did. I did get a little side eye though. LOL

Toes and tails

Lucy and Benny's feet and tails were intertwined when they were both on my lap. Squee!

Thrifty Thursday: More cat stuff


I found yet another cat pin. This one is hand made, but very well done.

And another cozy mystery! I'm not sure there is a cat in this series, but there were a couple of quotes on the back of the book that hinted that there is.

Chewy.com review: Flik automated string toy #chewyinfluencer

When I was asked if I would like the cats to review an automated toy, I was hestitant. In my experience, our cats prefer simple things, like a box or paper bag. The "fanciest" thing we have here is a Hexbug track with Hexbugs (both purchased secondhand).

I accepted and figured with four cats, there was a chance someone would like it.

Flik is an automated string toy. It's a round unit (sort of like a small Roomba) with about a 12" string that sticks out. You turn it on and the string moves on and off.

It takes 3 AA batteries. We suggest using rechargables, as it's sort of a battery hog.

Set it up and the floor and push the button the back to start it. One wish I have is that it would shut off after an amount of time, say 10 minutes, but you have to turn it off.

The first few minutes both Lucy and Ringo were sort of simulataneously freaked out and very curious about the toy, as you will see in the video. They could not stay away. Within 10 minutes, though, Lucy was all about this toy. In fact, she's become a bit obsessed with it. After I turned it off, I heard thuds in the room. I went back and discovered she had carried the string and moved the toy to a different part of the room. This happened a second time after play.


I would caution you to not put this near stairs because the toy is light and I'm not sure it would survive a fall. I'm also not sure if the string is replaceable, since the unit is not meant to be taken apart from what I could tell.

I'm pleasantly surprised at how entranced Lucy is by this toy. The only challenge will be making sure she does not damage it.

Disclaimer: We received one toy in exchange for an honest review. The opinions here are our own.
