If you read my blog regularly chances are you know that we have five cats… and a dog… and a pair of Goldfish. I often refer to them as our “mini zoo.” Needless to say we love animals and if we ever won the lottery I would buy a farm (with a lot of farm animals) and/or open up an animal rescue facility.
As most pet owners know it’s important to entertain your furry friend. You should always provide them with plenty of toys and encourage them to get some physical activity in on a daily basis.
Both our cats and our dog have their own toy boxes. It’s true! They are not actually toy boxes, per say. Our dog’s toys are kept in a huge wicker basket and our cats toys are kept in a fabric “box.” Our cats also have a tall cat tree they can climb up and down and a variety of tubes and tunnels.
We like to give our four legged family members treats from time to time. Not too many. Two of our cats are overweight so we try to limit their treats whenever we can.
Temptations treats and snacks are one of the brands that my cats enjoy. Their treats come in a variety of flavors that my cats love including whitefish, turkey, chicken and cheese. They also have treats that flavored like crab and shrimp.
In addition Temptations also have treats to help with tarter control, hairballs and skin/coat.
Temptations has added a new product to their product line – the new Temptations Snacky Mouse.
What is a Snacky Mouse?
A Snacky Mouse is a cute little plastic mouse with a weighed “bottom”. He reminds me of the Weeble Wobble toys I used to play with as a child.
Snacky Mouse is easy to use. Simply open it up and pour in a few Temptations cat treats and close. Then put the Snacky Mouse on the floor and watch your cat (or cats) have fun playing with their new toy and enjoying some yummy treats at the same time.
Snacky Mouse has a few openings in it’s body. As you cat bats the toy around a treat or two will find it’s way out of Snacky Mouse for your cat to eat.
Here are a couple of brief videos of our youngest cat Bella enjoying Snacky Mouse. I apologize in advance for my husband’s feet in the one video. It was dinner time and we were making dinner. In the other video you’ll see our dog Espn coming in for a closer look (Espn would eat all the treats and probably chew up the toy if given the opportunity).
It’s funny how some cats know right away how to play with the toy and get the treats out and other cats take a bit longer to “get it.” Our cat Anakin for example wasn’t exactly sure how to get the treats out. He kept trying to find a way to get them through the openings, not realizing all he had to do was bat it around so it would tip on it’s side and the treat would fall out.
Here is a picture of Anakin with Snacky Mouse (you can’t see it in the picture) as Bella and our other cat Padmé look on.
And here is Espn once again trying to gain access to the toy and treats.
The Snacky Mouse is a cute toy and treat dispenser all in one. So far my cats are loving it – when they can steal a few moments to play with it without Espn lurking about. When not in use I hide it away so that the dog doesn’t get a hold of it. He’s been known to chew up toys before.
Snacky Mouse can be reused again and again and can be filled with your cat’s favorite treats, like Temptations. You can buy the toy at many retail locations. It also comes with a sample size package of Temptations treats so you cat can start enjoying their new toy right away.
