As you can imagine, we have a lot of kitten toys around here. We try to rotate them frequently to give the kittens a variety of experiences, but also to find out what their favorites are so we can share this with their soon-to-be parents.
This weekend we pulled out one of Bean's favorites -- it's a furry, bouncy fringe toy on the end of a wand. I'm sure there's a name for it, but I don't know what is is.
It was an instant hit with our Fishkins, and just like that pom-pom on a stick we shared on Friday, it got them all growly, excited and fierce.
We played with it for a long stretch in the afternoon, and when I got tired (because you'll never wear a kitten out) I tucked it between the couch cushions and called the game officially "over".
Later that evening I heard a clackity-clack sound accompanied by thundering kittens hooves coming from the main floor. I came downstairs to investigate this cacophony, and discovered two boys running wild, chasing each other, and dragging the wand toy all over the house.
It's probably not the safest way to play with the wand, but they sure were having a grand time, so I let them run with it for a bit and took a short video before any damage was done. I knew you all would want to see this too!
They did their final lap with the wand, I took it away and hid it out of their sight, tossed them a couple of mylar balls and they seamlessly transitioned to a heated soccer match.
Here's the video: It starts off with the boys playing with the toy properly, and ends with the pair running wild.
Enjoy! And be sure to turn up the volume so you can hear Sidney's growls and all of the ka-thump, ka-thump, ka-thumps!
