Santa Came Early

Santa Came Early

We were contacted by Shoppers Drug Mart and informed of their new line of pet products, Amigo. They asked if we wanted to try out a few of their new cat toys and we said yes, yes, YES!!!

They sent us these two cute mice... 


and these cool rattle balls.



Goldie had the first go.



His favourites were the balls, purrfect for bunny kicking!




Banshee tried out the catnip mice but did not have much energy to play. She has had some sneezes over the weekend so she may not be feeling 100%. She is also used to homegrown fresh nip so she has quite a refined nip palate!


She came to investigate a little closer and the PM was sure she was getting ready to pounce but a distraction came into the room.


Miss Shady Lady


Shade escaped under the tree and actually batted some of the toys around!




She became nervous though as she could feel beady eyes spying through the branches.



We would like to say thank you very much Shoppers for these great toys! The Rattle Balls were a big hit and we hope Banshee will give the mice a going over when she is feeling better. 

A good stocking stuffer idea for our Canuck friends!!!

We were contacted a while ago, too, but thought it might be a scam, so deleted the message. Glad it was on the up-and-up and that the toys were approved of! :-)
