Flickerball Light Cat Toy

Date Sun, May 31 2009

I love my cats. We all know this, right? But I’m kinda lazy so I like toys that don’t require me to do anything. Unfortunately, Phantom, while awesome, likes the toys that move around and such on their own or toys that I play with, like Da Bird. That’s cool but, like I said, I’m lazy.

Enter stage left a motion, activated light up ball by Smarty Kat. The Flickerball Light Cat Toy is really awesome. It’s a little blue, plastic ball and when Phantom bats it around it lights up. A green and yellow/orange light alternate. It really grabs his attention which is great because he has stopped liking the little toy mice that Goliath still plays with.

I was worried for a few days because I couldn’t find it but, as it turns out, someone has knocked it waaay under the fridge. Retrieved, the cats enjoy it once more. If I have any complaints, it’s that it gets a little loud when the cats knock it against the walls. Maybe some softer coating could reduce the noise? And I don’t know how it works but I don’t think the batteries are replaceable so when it dies, I’ll have to buy a new one. Of course, then it just becomes a regular cat toy and it’s still usable.

Otherwise, the Light Flicker Ball makes both my cats and myself quite the happy camper!
