Cats on Tuesday: Butterfly Toy

Cats on Tuesday We both love to play with the Butterfly toy we received for Christmas. Because it is on a thin wire, we only play with it under supervision. (We have a little bit of the "Goa'uld eyes" happening in these photos, because our humans needed to use the flash to keep us from being blurry, since we were moving fast.)

Ready to attack!

This is fun!

What a nice toy ! I remember that Pookie loves to run behind a butterly and tries to catch it, sometimes she would roll over herself in the grass !

I got to practice my dragonfly toy myself!

Isis said...

Oh I just love that sort of toy! :)

Daisy said...

That does look like a fun toy! It is a little bit like my Cat Dancer that is also on a wire. The Cat Dancer is one of my favorites.

Andrée said...

A wire is sturdier than the string on our old, destroyed ones that were killed within two minutes. These boys are as graceful as dancers!

Luna said...

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

I think I would love that toy! Merlin, how do you keep your eyes from going red with the flash? My and Latte's eyes just go red but the gold looks so much better.

Vincent and Mike said...

That looks like a most excellent toy. And, you did a fine job of tellin' it who's boss.

CRIZ LAI said...

Beautiful toy you have there but I'm afraid to play with Jon and Jess as they can jump as high as 5-6 feet. Can you imagine how they catch lizards and roaches in the house? I'm still wondering how they could catch the lizard on the ceiling now..haha :P

Deana said...

Dragonheart do you ever wonder what life was like before your little brother came along? It has to be so much fun to have such great toys and a great playmate!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I am glad my human is not the only one who can't get a decent shot of cats running around all over the place! That looks like a fun toy too... I shall have to beg for one.

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

That looks fun! It is kinda like our bird toy, we can not play with it with out supervision either. Not because it will hut us but because Empress will destroy it.

Wills not, yous will. ~Empress

No you do. ~Q.Snickers

NO YOU! ~Empress

YOU! ~Q. Snickers

They both do ~ Momma Kimmi

Our 'Tucker plays volley ball with a small wiffle ball on a shoe lace. He loves it!

The Devil Dog said...

That looks like fun, but we can see where it might be dangerous. We have been playing together, a lot, too. It's just that mom can't get pictures of us. She is too slow.

That's a very cool toy-I like toys on wands or wires, too, but I can't get my mom to play with me on demand!

Wrigley & Cobalt said...

Camie's Kitties said...

That does look like a fun toy. It also looked like you were having a lot of fun yesterday with the milk jug rings. We get to play with those every once in a while, but mom doesn't usually buy milk in jugs. Our favorite toy is a piece of plastic bag tied in a butterfly shape to a thick piece of fishing line.
