The people at Freak Meowt must have somehow figured out that Dirk & I often “drink coffee together” (I drink the coffee of course and Dirk knows that’s the perfect time to sit in my lap). Dirk has also shown great interest in any types of coffee that come with a foam layer of milk on top and I must admit he sometimes gets to have a little of the foam… Yes, I spoil him 😉
Dirk’s new toy is based on a worldwide much loved drink: tea – just catnip please, no sugar or milk (although..…)
All right, so his new toy is not actually a drink – though that would be a great idea! – but a Catnip Tea Bag. I love the idea and the design, that really put a smile on my face 🙂
Dirk fancy a cuppa?
The catnip “tea” is inside a fancy Tetrahedral shaped bag and attached to a string with a label. The string and label are by no means superfluous: just try and grab hold of the tea bag again when your cat is playing with it! You’ll find the label extremely helpful.
Dirk is in catnip heaven with this toy. He loves cuddling and rolling around with it or chewing the piece of string. He’s not into sharing – anyone surprised? – so I have to really try my best to get hold of the label if I want to play with him. Tossing it around the living room for him to chase is fun too, but I really just enjoy watching Dirk go nuts.
If you’d like to get one of these head over to their Etsy shop!
This is me with my lovely cat Dirk! Let me tell you something about both of us.
I work as a cat sitter and cat behaviourist for CitiKiti in London and am basically surrounded by cats 24/7!
Dirk is roughly 11 years old (I say roughly because he is a rescue cat). 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.
