Wordless Wednesday

  Rosie finally got a turn on her Dad’s lap.


I know it is Wordless Wednesday, but I wanted to share a link with you about the safety of pet toys.  It is sad that there are no regulations for pet toys. I always cut the bells off of toys and I throw away the balls with bells for fear they will fall out.  The article from prezzies.com has a list of the most dangerous toys for cats and dogs. To see it, click here.

  1. Inneresting article and I’m glad my Mylar balls are safe toys. TW also cuts bells and stuff off the toys. Luckily I never ate the foam rockets. I can’t really play with wand toys since my claws get caught in them. I once almost got the string wrapped around my neck but TW saved me. I wouldn’t play wand toy for years after than. I’m surprised lasers aren’t listed since shown in a cat’s eyes, they could be dangerous.

  2. Rosie and Dad both look like they’re enjoying lap time. 🙂

    That article is really interesting, and very extensive. We’re hyper vigilant about making sure our cats’ toys are as safe as possible.

  3. Thanks for that list….unfortunately people forget that the little dangly things and plastic balls with things inside can BREAK and the pieces can be eaten and that is just not good. You’re a thoughtful Mom!! Rosie has the best seat in the house (and warmest).

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. I reposted the pet toy safety post on Facebook. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I guess most of us can find at least one or two pet toys to modify or toss out among those our cats’ and dogs’ toys.

    1. Thank you for sharing. It is sad that there are so many dangerous toys out there.

  5. Lovely photo ~ and you’re so right about toys. How often the toys I buy wind up looking nothing like the toy I give to June after I’ve removed all the ” high risk stuff”!

  6. Yay Rosie that is a most coveted place for your photos!!
    Our first cat was more into checking out way to many things that were not safe. I learned never to buy toys that had any kind of pieces and parts that could be bitten off.

  7. Rosie looks happy to be on dad’s lap.

    Great tip. It’s our job to keep our babies safe.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Wordless Wednesday, Ellen. Scritches to the kitties. 💞

  8. There she is, being a daddy’s girl!
    I’ve cut so many things from cat toys over the years, and have thrown some store-bought toys straight into the garbage, ones that were gifted to me but I didn’t purchase.

  9. Aside from a feather on a stick, my cats don’t like “bought” toys. They like the catnip sacks I make with no added stuff although they will steal the occasional bottle top. It’s good to be vigilant.

  10. Excellent point about the bells. I’ve never had a cat that ate non-food things, but I can definitely see the danger.

    1. Same here, but my niece’s cat used to eat anything string like including tank tops with spaghetti straps and charger cords.
