Default Remember the Weasel Ball?

Back about a couple of years ago, we were all buying weasel balls for
our cats to play with. These were a hard plastic ball, with batteries
inside running a motor and a "fur" tail on the outside. It was supposed
to look like a weasel attacked the ball and was rolling around the floor
with it. I don't remember what most of your cats' reactions to it was,
but our cats thought it was pretty lame.

Well. A couple of days ago, Jim was flipping the weasel ball around (it
hadn't been used in over a year) and somehow disconnected the weasel
from the ball. He told Rob about it, and Rob said that he was going to
throw it away. Jim started it and put it on the ground, and Squeakers
went nuts. He chased the ball around the living room, batted it around,
drug it under his belly, and even sat upon it. The other cats were very
interested in it as well. So, the problem, for our cats at least, was
they didn't like the weasel. The ball is very popular, even more so
than ice cube hockey.

The weasel has been tossed into the cats' toybox where it has been
successfully ignored, and the ball has attracted as many as five cats to
chase it at a time. It's a whole new toy for them.

Giggling,

Pam S.

Tanada had some very interesting things to say
about Remember the Weasel Ball?:

Felix was scared to death of it.

Hehe. Yeah, mine's been sitting unused for about a year, too. Maybe
time to bring it out again -- not sure Merlyn's had a chance to play
with it.

I was over at my ex-husband's one time a few years back, and he had
one (which inspired us to get one). But his was missing the "tail",
too, and his cat was also going bonkers over it. Maybe they really
don't like the weasel.

Mine broke after a couple of days along with the other made in China
crap I bought from the Harriet Carter catalog.

Mine hated the weasel ball. I thought they'd love it. They just looked at it
like, "So?"
