A few years back, before Vladi came to live with us, Tanji and Uschi had a battery-operated rotating pom pom toy, or what was sold as the "panic mouse." Uschi loved it, Tanji hated it. We kept it secure in a cabinet, and would bring it out every once in a while for Uschi, with Tanji retreating to the kennel crying. Uschi loved it a bit too much, and after a while even duct tape couldn't put the pom pom toy back together again. For years we have left the broken toy out, so Uschi could bat at it and drag the pieces around.
A we were recently in Portland and had a chance to use a gift card from Grandmeow to purchase a new pom pom toy, a slightly different color and feathers instead of a pom pom, but basically the same toy.
Some assembly is required and there are plenty of helpers.
Uschi has arrived and is staring passionately at the feathers.
Vladi is instantly bored, and when the feathers smack Tanji,
he chirps and runs away.
Why did you get another one of these ???
Put it back in the box, please.
Uschi has been watching "patiently"
but he is ready to rumble...
