Bear finally gets his tasty whole chicken

We recently received five different OurPets toys. Over the next couple months, we're going to review them on the blog. OurPets says it best: "The OurPets product line features a variety of premium, innovative, quality toys, accessories, feeding and waste management solutions specially designed to awaken a pet’s natural instincts." The products are specifically designed to promote strong bonds between pets and their people. We found out about OurPets on another blog reviewing their products. I was excited to try something different - toys my cats can play with on their own. Time and time again, Bear misbehaves when he's bored. As much as I'd love to always put him first, that's just not reality. To read more about boredom in cats, and Bear's struggles especially, please see: Are your cats bored? I wish we'd had these toys when Bear was younger and more active - there were times his bored antics - as I tried to accomplish the smallest task - left me in tears. And now, I don't get to play with Ellie nearly as much as I'd like to. These toys provide an outlet for cats' natural instinctual behavior. To read more about these instincts: Feline instincts.



Today, we're reviewing Bear's favorite OurPets toy by far: Bird in a Cage.



I'm going to let the pictures tell the story - you can see how much fun he's having! These pictures were taken over a series of four or five nights - so the positioning is slightly different - but the fun is the same. We'll review the other toys soon.

Bear gives this toy ten claws up, and Ellie came around in the end to agree! Get a Bird in a Cage for your own favorite feline!

  1. Well I never, you got one. I hate to break it to you, Bear, but I think the chicken is more a chick. Still it's a great start and will make a wonderful training device for young Ellie–under your guidance, naturally. Maybe let Ellie soften it up for you and then you can do a master class on de-feathering?

  8. AMARULA: Now let me preface this by saying that I am sure I've had one catnip snack too many and my thinking is clearly fuzzy---oh I so hate to admit this--but you and your sister actually look CUTE playing TOGETHER!? What's wrong with me?! The end of the world is nigh!

  9. Phew...your title had us worried for a minute (or had our flock worried, I should say). Bear really had some fun with that!!
    Do they make something like this for dogs? Luke is driving me crazy lately with his boredom, whining, and fidgeting every evening. He definitely needs something more entertaining than just a stuffed toy!

    1. Or un-stuffed as they are when Luke gets done with them ... I was actually surprised how much Bear loves these. They have dog toys [http://ourpets.com/product-category/toys-for-dogs] - but none seem similar to what we tried.

    1. We're so glad the e-mail thing worked! It did make me pretty happy to see them enjoying themselves to that extent - and without taking it out on each other!
