Cat’s Toy

While living with cats, I designed many Cat’s Toy. 

or cat’s Teaser.

After all, cats are still the hunter = they chase 

anything moves, though, the birds are a bit too

fast ( still, they brought me 2 sparrows and one

wood pigeon ! —— this pigeon was as big as the

cat, Pino II herself. —– But they are the headache on the “Diplomatic Protocol”

= Gift has to be accepted with full gratitude and has to be eaten.  M m m ?   😀

When they saw a bird they make very peculiar sound like clacking noise “Ka ka ka — ka ka ka”

And flying Butterfly makes them excite most.

= So, I designed a Cat Teaser using the Bird’s Feather which fly like a flapping Butterfly.  

= On the Photo above,  3 Feathers were arranged to make a propeller (to make it rotate)  then

short elastic string was used between Ball-chain and Feathers.   Elastic string gives flexibility

when the feather was caught by a cat (to prevent cat’s nail to break).   And the Ball-chain

allow the feather propeller to rotate.  (—– In short, it is a fly-fishing rod for a cat.  😀 ) 

The game is, moving the feather propeller on front of a cat, but keep it never be caught.

Cat's Toy (2)469-001

Whole string was tied on top of a collapsible Radio-Antenna, hence it became very small.

In fact, it would give a good exercise to the cats, and to the cat’s owner alike.

= Cat catches it  first, or you pull it a moment before ?    🙂

    Wow, that’s a dedicated cat companion, designing such clever toys. I love that top shot: great color and movement. It really does look like a butterfly-bird. 🙂

      Yap, no cat ever managed to resist, jump to this butterfly.

    I just played with my cats a few minutes ago, but I’ve never made them a toy. I’ll have to commission you!:)

      No problem. Just send me your snail-mail address.
      On return, you may draw quick sketch of me (I’ll send you photo to refer).
      I know, it would be a fun. 🙂

    A very cool looking toy. No cat could resist!

      Yes, in deed. It works perfect, as long as it was kept “Not caught”.
      Once a cat on the street jumped and caught it straight, —– and gave a
      devastating bite to destroy it.
