The boys have many store bought "cat" toys, but one of their favorite toys is an afterthought home-made one. Just before their arrival into our lives we did a bunch of cleaning/organizing. During this process I emptied my sock drawer and ended up with an entire grocery bag of socks that I didn't wear for various reasons. Just as they were headed out the door I thought "hey they boys might like to chew on a stuffed sock" why did I think this?,... who knows. Anyway, I stuffed a sock with a bunch of other socks and tied off the end. I made two, just in case.
As always, Tanj found it first and is a regular attacker of the "kick-pickle". Uschi has begun to attack it more frequently also. They both jump on it, bite it, hold it with their front paws/claws and kick it hard with their hind feet/claws. When Uschi attacks it, Tanj will be right there to either take over the kick-pickle attack or to attack Uschi. Eventually, they end up wresting with each other and ripping around the house. Then it is back to the "kick-pickle".
