Apparently the Momz has not heard the Albert Einstein quote: “Insanity – doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” When chewy.com offered us this fun cat toy: the Kong Active Triangle Playmat/Tunnel, with dangling catnip mouse, she just had to give Sam one more chance to do a review, even though Sam has not come through for her time and time again. (Momz, was there not dog treats to choose from for this month’s review??)
We don’t actually blame the Momz for thinking that Sam might like this. Sam does, after all, love to hide away in cozy places, so we all thought she might just enjoy tucking herself into this plush little playground and maybe even scratch the sisal wall and play with that mouse.
First, we’ll tell you a little more about it. It really is a cool toy. It folds up for easy storage or travel, and it has 2 plush walls and one sisal wall for scratching. The exterior wipes clean. And look at the pretty color! The only thing we were not sure about was the size. It’s pretty small. Sam is a petite cat and she could certainly fit in there though, and cats like those tight spaces, right? Plus it would be perfect for kittens as well.
We showed this photo yesterday and asked people how they thought the review went. Most correctly guessed that it did not go well. The Momz moved that thing to multiple locations all over the house, all of Sam’s favorite hangout spots.
She even put treats inside to try to entice Sam in there. Nothing doing.
Finally, Momz gave up on the triangle part and tried just leaving it around laid flat. It can still be fun like that…there’s plush to lay on, sisal to scratch, and the mouse is still within reach. We like that the mouse is attached, because yes, Luke did try to steal it! Sam was seen laying on it, but whenever Momz grabbed the camera, she got up. Here Momz has it all stretched out for her, and what does Sam do? She lies on an envelope full of receipts, and the packaging for the mat that Momz had next to her computer for me to refer to when writing. What a bratty cat she is, am I right?
FINALLY, she laid down on the mat and stayed there long enough for Momz to get the photo! So, we wonder, does that make it a win for the Momz, or is she really insane (sorry, Momz)? Well, let’s just say I’M the one doing the work here, so that just might be your answer!
Listen, Sam is finicky about everything. We think this is a great toy that most NORMAL cats would like! If Sam doesn’t use it more soon, we’ll be passing it on to Cousin Nina to see what she thinks. But we still recommend it.
It is on sale right now at chewy.com, so you can get one for your cat for Christmas! Chewy has speedy shipping (free over $49!), and impeccable customer service; not to mention more pet products and supplies than you can dream of! It’s a great place to do some Christmas shopping…in fact, I think I’m going to head over there right now and put some things in Momz’ shopping cart so they’ll be there next time she orders our food (shhh…don’t tell)!
