We Missed a Gift

Hi everyone! I am attempting to put away all our Christmas decorations. I can’t bring myself to take the tree down yet though. I did find another gift for the kitties that they somehow missed.

Noel got to open it

  It is a water activated fish

Sammy checked it out, but had no interest after a few seconds.

And look who is hogging it. Little Penny the toy hoarder.

It moves around like a real fish, but no one tried to scoop it out. Does anyone else have one of these ? If so, does your cat play with it?

  1. Saw a hilarious video on Facebook of a cat playing in a bowl of water with two of these fish swimming around in it – REALLY having a ball…..water all over the countertop but the cat was loving it!

    Hugs, Pam

  2. Oh, what a fun toy for you all! I bet the kitites around here would love something like that. Thank you for the idea! We have real fish and a frog, and the kitties sure do love to watch them. Sometimes they love them a little too much, and they try to break into the aquariums. Maybe one of these would give the real fish a nice little break from all that harassment. Purrs to all of you!

  3. How fun on both finding another gift and the gift itself. Penny will have lots of fun. I’m guessing if you leave it around a bit others will find it interesting too.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your wonderful peeps. ☺

  4. This looks like a lot of fun! It is cute seeing your kitties gather around it. I’m not sure what my cats would do. Dexter would probably play with it because he doesn’t fear water.

  5. When we tried to stimulate Angel and Chuck’s desire to drink water, we’ve floated ice cubes in their dish. They were scared of it! A floaty fish may bring out a different reaction. I’d like to try one on Patty O’Malley, outside! I’m thinking that he’d put on quite a show, with a water bowl and fishy!

  6. guyz..purrhapz de fish kneadz a bigger pond !! knot nessa sara lee tub size…but may bee cake pan size !! ??? 🙂 ♥♥♥

  7. “Penny, the toy hoarder …” For some reason, that struck me as hilarious … and I remember the picture too. Bear drops his toys in his water bowl and then bats them out (well, unless his paw gets TOO wet … then he leaves it). Maybe I should get one for him?

  8. That looks like such a fun toy. My Fleurp really wanted to play with my beta fish when I first got him, I had to rearrange the house to prevent her from getting to him.

  9. That is hilarious. We had an aquarium when we adopted our first cat. He would sit on watching them for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. Hugs Madi and mom

    • Mom misplaced this one when she was going to take a photo of Noel opening it then got distracted. Penny is a toy hog – MOL!

    • It is actually a child’s toy, I got mine at a local chain called Ocean State Job Lot, but you can get them on ebay. Glad to have made you feel better. XO

  10. We have those fishies and only Quint was brave enough to try to scoop it out of the water bowl. Everyone else just stared at it like something serious was out of whack. Like, “Why is there an elephant swimming in my water bowl?”
