Grumpy Cat Toys and a Not-So-Grumpy Dirk

I’m sure most of you have read about Grumpy Cat or seen pictures of him. I think he’s super funny even if it’s unintentional. I doubt he’ll be happy to hear I love him or that he now features in cat toys – at best he probably can’t care less.

Yes, you read it: Grumpy Cat toys!! I have to admit I think I might like these even more than Dirk does. The toys have the characteristic grumpy face which just makes me laugh out loud.

How do Dirk and the grumpy faces get along? Well, let’s find out!

Whoa, seriously what’s that look on his face?!?!
(It’s his natural facial expression Dirk, Grumpy can’t help it)

All right then, but I sure want to give it some good kicks ๐Ÿ™‚

 

The Catnip Sock has some bells attached to it and the sock itself makes a funny rustling, crinkly sound. Most cats absolutely love this. Dirk will come running as soon as he hears it. You can hide the toy and squeeze it a few times to arouse his hunting instincts. Wait for you cat to get into ‘hunting mode’ and just watch him pounce and kick it around ๐Ÿ™‚ And of course it contains the much-loved catnip… I’m afraid Dirk is an addict and I’m his enabler…

The other Grumpy Cat toy we play with a lot is technically a door hanger. I say technically because Dirk much prefers playing with it on the floor or anywhere else rather than the door. It makes sense too, because it is quite big and really suited for interactive games or stretching&kicking it around – which Dirk loves ๐Ÿ™‚

No mom, I don’t want to play with you. It’s all mine!

The door hanger looks like a cat and thus has also got four legs. Initially Dirk wasn’t so sure about all those dangling legs, but he soon discovered you can stretch and kick all at the same time. Another fun feature: when he gives the head some proper kicks it makes a squeaky sound too – which sent him flying the first time around.

While Dirk prefers dragging and kicking this toy around, you can absolutely hang this toy on the door knob. We only have door handles in the house and it’s therefore a bit difficult for Dirk to get the toy off the handle and play with it. However, if your doors have knobs then your can can easily grab hold of the toy’s legs and pounce them. With some effort they might be able to get them off the door knob. Just imagine the look on your cat’s face when they succeed!

Dirk is truly becoming one of Grumpy Cat’s fans and as they say “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”!

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.
