Just to overwhelm with cuteness a little bit more...
The day we brought Nacho home, we also got her some flash furniture. It's two scratching poles connected with a kitty hammock. One the top of one pole is a perch with a rolling scratchy thing. We replaced the bottom furry stuff with a bit of carpet, and tied on some ribbons and bells.
Does she play with it, or sleep on it? No. I think she'd be happier with the plastic bag it came in. This bag doubles as entertainment and a comfy place to nap.
Eventually the hammock came down, though we might put it back up once she gets more comfortable with the scratching poles. She is starting to use the whole set-up a bit more, but it was frustrating the first few days when she avoided it like the plague!
But, we've learned our lesson. There is no need to spend money on cat toys when she's amused by the cheapest entertainment. Like ribbon.
Or the ring from a jar of Vegemite.
Other favourites: a bit of cardboard with yarn wrapped around it, and with a long tail so we can drag it around. Toilet paper rolls, especially if they have a *little* bit of toilet paper left on them; she attacks these with her full body, front and back legs. Buckets, either empty (she crawls inside and rolls around) or full (she sits on the edge and dips her paw in). Wadded up paper balls. And the fishtank. This last one is a bit problematic. She's tried jumping on it a few times. Mostly now she just bats at the fish as they move inside the tank. They're not too fond of her.
I was really hoping she would lay in the hammock. Imagine how freakin' cute that would be?
