Cats on Tuesday: Whirlybird

Cats on Tuesday One of my favourite toys is the Whirlybird. The last time my dad was in Canada, he brought one back for me! (You can get your own Whirlybird here.) Here are some photos of me enjoying my Whirlybird. (Click any of the photos to see a larger version of the image.)

Intently watching the prey

Attack!

Gotcha!

Mine all mine!

That is a wonderful toy ! I have never seen this in Brussels ! I think my cats would love it too and keeps them away from real birds ! Although they never had catched one only mice.

PS Photobucket is nice but people can't make the pictures bigger, how did you do that ?

Those are marvelous toys. Except for us. We had one and my outdoor hunting cats just went bonkers and destroyed it in five minutes. Totally tore it apart. Wish they would play nice because I need something besides catnip to keep them busy in the winter.
