Dirk’s inner football player loves the JW Cataction Rattle Ball

All right, before I tell  you about the JW Cataction Rattle Ball, I want to share something personal with you.

First of all, I love pink! It’s such a cool colour. My litter tray is pink, I have some pink toys and my scratching posts are pink too. Apologies, the sofas I meant…

But that’s not all I wanted to share with you. Not many people know this, but I was actually named after a famous football player, or at least he’s famous in The Netherlands and in Liverpool 😉

So now that you know a bit more about me I can tell  you about my new Rattle Ball and it will come as no surprise that I love it. I mean, it’s purple & pink and it looks like a mini football! Totally my kind of thing.

Of course you can play with it on your own or with a cat friend. I like bouncing it against the walls and generally running around with it. On lazy days I just lie around and pounce the ball back and forth a bit.

Here’s the best thing about this ball, so fellow cats, pay attention! You should totally share this toy with your humans. They seem to enjoy kicking and throwing it as much as I like catching it. My mom and dad often kick or throw the ball to each other until I catch it and chase it around the house 🙂 It’s such fun to watch your humans running around for a change. Makes my day every time!

I just wish I knew how to take pictures so I could show you how happy my parents are running around throwing the ball…

Luckily, Dirk doesn’t know how to use a camera 😉 It’s true though that he enjoys this toy most in combination with human interaction. The 3 of us have a lot of fun with it.

I do also catch him ‘accidentally’ stepping over the toy and then chasing it because “OMG that just moved?!?” He’ll then play with it on his own and gets quite enthusiastic!

This is me with my lovely cat Dirk! Let me tell you something about both of us. I work as a cat sitter for Cat Care London and am basically surrounded by cats 24/7! I also occassionally walk dogs or board hamsters or rabbits, which Dirk doesn't seem to care about at all! Dirk is roughly 8 years old. I got him 6 years ago from a shelter. Dirk is truly the most loving and lovable cat I know. He is very interested in people and loves being cuddled a lot. Dirk spends most of his time relaxing with me or anywhere around the house really. He is also quite playful and loves the games that involve interaction the most.

  1. Hi Dirk! I was also named after someone famous. My human named me Teemu, after Teemu Selanne, a famous, now retired, hockey player. While I do like that pink ball, I would probably prefer a more manly color like, you know, blue….Heh heh, I like that you make your humans run around with. I need to try that with mine. Take care and have fun.

    1. Hi Teemu, you have a cool name 🙂
      Are you saying pnik is not a manly colour?? My mom says it’s for really cool guys….
      Now I’m confused, but hey, I’ll take it out on the pink soafs 😉

  2. I was thinking, “Liverpool? Someone called Karen? Karel, maybe…ah.”

    My previous cat Millie in her younger years loved table tennis balls. She sat at the top of the stairs. I threw the ball up in all sorts of ways and every time she’d contort herself if necessary and bat it back down to me.

    1. Have to try that with Dirk as he loves running upstairs. Somehow I think I’ll be the one running upstairs to “fetch” the ball though…

      1. Oh, an impressive thing about Millie was that she clearly knew her getting the ball back depended on her getting it to me. It was a genuine co-operation.
