I thought I’d tell you about Sport Pet’s cat play cubes. I bought the first one a couple months back at Walmart. At $3 and some change I thought I would give them a try. Logan, my heaviest rough-houser, decided to adopt it as his.. sort of hamster ball. There was a long while where he would run throughout the house somehow keeping himself inside of it. He would sleep in it. eat in it. and ambush people and other animals through it.
I can’t tell you how creepy it is to walk by and have this cube attack you. Afterwards it’s hilarious.
Not soon after that he hit his growth-spurt and now can’t run around in it as easily, but that doesn’t stop him. The cube has suffered from all that play, but is totally worth the money to see him so happy with it.
Since then I’ve had to buy more cubes for the other cats in the house because they took a liking to Logan’s, but he just doesn’t want to share all that fun.
Since I bought the green one, they have changed what the packaging looks like and the colors. They might have more, but at my Walmart they only sell the baby blue and soft pink.
I will warn that if they ever look this bad to throw them out. Logan plays rough with his and the newer ones made by Sport Pet are made with a stronger fabric.
I’m going to have to retire Logan’s very very soon. Our foster kitten, Alice, got her foot tangled in torn pieces… So it’s time to throw it out. I tried buying Logan a new one. He looked happy at first and ran into it immediately, but then made a U-turn out of the next hole and ran back to his. It’ll be sad, but he’ll just have to get used to a new security blanket. lawl
