Floki Versus the Turbo Scratcher

I think the one cat toy in our house that has really stood the test of time is the Turbo Scratcher. The one we have now is one of two that we bought well over fifteen years ago (I don’t know what happened to the other one). It has not only lasted for years, it has also remained one of the most played with toys in the house.

Not all of our cats have been interested in it. Some have ignored it completely while others played with it occasionally, but there has always been one cat that goes back to it again and again. When Chris was young, he was the one. Then it was Puck and now Floki loves the Turbo Scratcher.

I often hear the sound of Floki playing with it but I never have a camera around. When I do go and get my camera or phone, as soon as I come back he is done playing. I was lucky to get the above video before Christmas and then promply forgot I had it until now.

Do you have any pet toys that have stood the test of time? I would love to hear about them.

    Sammy’s favorite toy was the furry white mouse that Teddy adopted when he came to live with us. He promptly turned it into a pile of rags by rough-housing with it and I was constantly repairing it until it almost disintegrated. Teddy is not much for toys these days though. Yeeowww banana is his favorite and after a few bunny kicks he moves on to another nap. We do have one of those scratchers but he’s never shown interest in it. PICKY PICKY BOY !!

    Hugs, Pam

    We like our nip toys the best. We have a couple of turbo scratchers and we hardly ever use them anymore.

    Our previous cat, Rascal, had a stuffed sheep that she carried all over the house and played with. Snoops has an equal attraction and carries it around the house. They both treat it as prey and meow when they give it to me.
