For Christmas this year we got our cats this great new toy called the Turbo Track. It's basically a bunch of pieces of track that snap together in different configurations and then the cats chase a ball through the track. They already had a small circular track with a ball that they love to chase, so we knew it could be a hit. It was.
Obviously Soxie likes to play and Leo likes to watch...
Then, one day I saw a you tube video of a cat that was playing with a GIANT Turbo Track made of multiple sets. The cat was going crazy for it, and I new that I HAD to have it. My cats couldn't just be satisfied with one tiny track when there was a whole world of bigger and better tracks out there! They had to have the best.
So, I bought two more tracks and when they arrived I spent all night making 'MEGA TURBO TRACK':
It was glorious! It had hills and curves and tunnels and even their circular track fit in the middle! Kitty cat heaven! Or so I thought.
Those goobs just sat there and looked at it like this:
"Ma - I can't lay in one spot and play with this. You expect me to run around and play? I think I'll go take a nap instead."
So there it sat. Once in a while they would walk by, tap one of the balls and walk away. I would try to entice them to play by laying on the floor and pushing the balls around the track, but then I realized I was a moron who was playing with a cat toy. It was not everything I dreamed it would be.
Don't get too caught up in Leo's excitement at the end. Heh.
Have you ever bought a toy for your pet and they didn't love it as much as you thought they would? Years ago we bought them a 'cat hammock' that got sniffed once and that was it...
