Birthday coming up

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Popsie will hit 17 in about a month. I want to get him something but I have no idea what. He doesn't play with toys so that option is out. Any suggestions?

I know he doesn't play with toys, but even the most standoffish cat I have ever owned couldn't resist a crazy wheel. That's the plastic wheel that has a ball trapped in it that spins around. Laser pointers are a blast for cat and human. I have cats that wouldn't be caught dead playing with toys in general, but there is something about a stupid red light that gets them up and going. I have caught my 13 year old chasing that stupid ball around and then looking at me like she just accidentaly ran into it. My 20 year old played with both of these until he passed. His favorite pastime.

A cat tree might be good. Popsie does like to climb on and walk across things. (coffee table, sofa table, etc.) He already has Da Bird and doesn't play with it.
