Pull ‘n Play Cat Toy

Two weeks ago we bought two cat toys from Friskies called Pull ‘n Play. The toy is like a Weeble. which they call Wobbert. It is weighted on the bottom and it wobbles. It is shaped like an animal but I’m not sure what it is supposed to be, perhaps a bear. The head twists off so you can put treats inside. It comes with a bag of Friskies Party Mix and it also has a string-like treat that you thread through the ears. There is a small hole at the bottom so treats will fall out when it wobbles just right.

When we introduced it to our cats, Chris dominated the toy. As expected, he was the first, and still only, cat to figure out how the toy works. I recorded the first few minutes of them playing with it but later, after the camera was put away, I watched Chris wobble it and then immediately look for treats. Sometimes treats would come out and sometimes they wouldn’t but he was smart enough to expect it.

Later we brought the second toy to Rose’s sister, Felice. Her cats were different. The were more interested in the string and our cats were after the treats.

I used to buy the Party Mix as a treat for our cats and they loved it. Here is a video from a few years ago related to those treats.

I will say that I stopped buying those treats because I wanted our cats to have a more healthy treat. I now give them a raw, freeze-dried cat food that I use as treats. The brands vary because they love everything I have tried so I buy whatever is a good deal. Currently, I am feeding them Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw. After the Party Mix was gone I put some of the raw treats in the toy. Even though they love it when I give it to them as a treat, they mostly ignored it in the toy. Cats can really be frustrating at times.

Has anybody else tried this toy or another treat toy?

    Snorts! Mom bought this for Hemi and Mouse Girl. I think Houdini had more fun with it than they did. It was hilarious to watch indeed. XOXO – Bacon

    I bet if you asked Chris, he would say that humans can be really frustrating at times. We were going to say that Chris is a fast learner and really persistent, but in the last video he wasn’t too quick to figure out where those treats were. We have a pull and play, but Mom hasn’t set it up for us. Since today is a cool and super rainy day and not that good for catio time, maybe we can convince her to do it.

    That is funny how yours wanted the treats and your sister’s wanted the strings. We have this toy, but Joanie won’t quit until every treat is gone and the strings are eaten too so I don’t know if anyone else likes it.

    Binga goes crazy with those treat toys! Not necessarily in a good way – she is so desperate to get the treats out that she practically destroys whatever they are in.
