return of fish toy

One of Max's favorite toys was the Fish Toy by West Paw Design. After Max's death. it took me awhile before I would let the other cats play with Max's fish. The fish is about 6" long. The soft fleece material is made from recycled plastic bottles. There is a little bell inside that rattles and there is a bit of organic catnip inside.

Eventually, Theo discovered the fish toy and he destroyed it. Theo has a way of tearing things up. He gutted the fish so he could get at the catnip that was sewn in. I was quite annoyed because this toy had belonged to Max.

Remembering that Rose enjoyed the fish when she was so tiny, the other day I decided to look for a new one. I ordered three so I would have a backup supply. Sadly, they are harder to find now which translates into a higher price.

Tastes good

Rose is indifferent. She hasn't shown any interest yet in the new fish.


  1. I bet you could make those fish toys...they look delicious! I was thinking it would be nice to have treats that are skinny, long and a bit wiggly in texture like a snake. Have you seen anything like that? We mostly have Greenies here but a wiggly treat that mimics a snake would be so exciting!

  2. Isn't that the way it goes? Get a toy for one kitty and they ignore it while a second one goes bananas.
    Contrary little critters!

  3. I guess Ross like antique version.... Thing which passed down from generation to generation ...It always have a fabulous smell.
