Oliver & Nubia: Cat versus String – Who shall win?

Hi everyone,

It’s me Nubia here today! And as you can see… I am trying to defeat this new toy… well I call it torture device but the humans seem to think it’s a toy…


Nubia: At first I thought it was a lot of fun!


Nubia: A toy that dispenses my FAVOURITE… STRINGS! 😀 It was like heaven!


Nubia: However… quickly I realised… that actually it was some kind of new torture device!


Nubia: Whenever I saw the string…


Nubia: … and managed to catch it!


Nubia: I pulled and pulled only…


Nubia: … to be hugely annoyed by it pulling back inside! And such a small crevice it was too… how am I meant to put my paw in there?!?


Nubia: I clawed, I huffed, I puffed!

Nubia: I even tried to pull my WHOLE weight into it… The torture device even momentarily halted it’s evil process of taking the string away… but in the end… it was stronger. *hiss*

Oliver: I think my sister is being a bit melodramatic there wouldn’t you agree?

Nubia: No I am not!!! It’s a mean toy.

Oliver: What she really means is that she is having LOADS of fun and even better she might exercise her lazy bum a bit. D:

Nubia: Hold on a second! Did you call me fat?!?

Oliver: Maybe… Anyway… while sister is having a tantrum why don’t you head over to the Petsafe® website to get one of these FroliCat® FLIK™ Automatic Cat Teaser (UK) or (US)? I am sure you’ll have loads of fun with FroliCat® FLIK™! 😀 Might even annoy a sibling or two *evil cat laugh*

Nubia: That’s it… I shall chase my brother through the entire house for the rest of the day! *roars*

Oliver: Ah excellent MORE exercise for you! 😮

    Thanks for your great review Nubia (and Oliver of course). I’ve seen these toys, but never really understood how they work.
    Would you recommend it for a string loving cat, or did you just get fed up with the frustration of the torture in the end?

    Can I ask post about : how to coax and persuade cat to play with this toy 🙂 🙂 🙂 I have this and this is sadly sitting alone in a corner…

    So not fair! Was intent on answering the cat! The cat always wins if it’s cat versus string…..but I realise my eagerness for the cat to triumph might be too soon. Ah! Cheers, H

    That’s a really neat toy. I’m glad to see in the comments that you take it away when it’s not in use … wouldn’t want Oli or Nubia to eat the string! 🙂

Why not meow a comment to fellow readers?
