    Egad, I’m glad his tail started moving at the end there- I thought he was in a cat-atonic state.

      I got one through Amazon. As long as I was sitting on the floor tapping the ball back and forth, my cat would bat at it. At some point, I realized I was playing with it more than he was. But it is a neat cat toy. I could see kittens really liking it.

        If I bought it, it would be just like all the other toys I bought my cat—in the bag to take to the shelter. For her, nothing beats a Q-tip, a milk bottle ring, or a bug in the house!

        My young cats love it, especially with the light-up ball.

        Oh, these two!

    I don’t agree, I think Maru did the better job, Hana chased the ball in the tube, couldn’t catch it and lost interest and left.
    But Maru took off the top of that thing and caught the ball and bit it! After that, since the ball didn’t taste good, he had no use for the toy, so why not take a nap.

      He plays with it exactly the way he wants to…otherwise it’d be work. 😀

    I laughed out loud when Maru knocked the top off!😂 I’m sorta surprised he didn’t try and squeeze himself inside then. I think he played with it very well–dont have to run around to play!

    I don’t want Maru to be like Hana. He wouldn’t be Maru.
    Maybe if Mugumogu put the toy in a box, Maru would play with it.
    Have we ever seen that much of Maru’s snowy white chin before? He looked like a different cat when he was upside down!
    And I love how his whole upside down butt moved when he thrashed his tail at the end.

    M & H always remind me of Goren & Eames (the detectives from ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent’).

    He: large, imperious, makes his own rules

    She: plays it straight; loyal, exasperated, occasionally scores a zinger

    I’d pay to see an all-cat remake, LOL!

      My favorite show. Exact description. Like Goren, Maru thinks outside the box. Even when he’s in a box.

      Loved the tail thwapping and full belly exposure.
