I may be disowned by my cat

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I am new to this site and look forward to chatting with each and everyone of you. I hate to start asking for favorites right away but I am in desperate need of your assitance.
Cosmo has allowed me to be his mother for the past 5 1/2 years, however, he may disown me soon. His favorite mouse toy is no longer available at my local supermarket (Stop & Shop), the only store I have seen them in. They come in a package of 3-5, they are 2 1/2 inches in length with a gray front part of the body and a black back half. The feathers (approx. 2inches) vary in colors. He loves them because they rattle.
Any help in finding them would be greatly appreciated! (Middletown, RI, USA)

Thank you to all of you! As soon as I can, I'll show a picture of the prized mouse. I am completely computer illiterate - as soon as my husband gets home from his basketball game I will have him attach it. I haven't tired Ebay - thanks maverick_kitten for the idea!
Fwan - I tried the store - they looked at me like I had two heads! Apparently, not to many people are willing to search high and low for cat toys!

Have you tried the Stop and Shops in Newport? If you do post a pic, I am close to the S&S in Bristol, and I can check there.

Well, they certainly haven't met anyone else from TCS then!

Have you looked at any of the online stores that specializes in cat toys? Do you know the brand of the coveted toy mouse?

Here's a couple to try:

Plain Brown Tabby

Catnip Etc.
Or just look on the Meowhoo page for Cat Toys & Entertainment

I have tired Plain Brown Tabby and Catnip Etc. but not The Meowhoo page for Cat Toys & Entertainment -- thanks for the advise!

Hey we are always here, and that's what we're for! There are always people willing to help, don't worry, always feel free to ask questions and look for help! Anytime. There are lots of people who can answer your questions & help you out, most of the time. We're like one great big family, and we support each other.

Good luck with finding your kitty's favorite toy. Cats can be picky, huh?

Don't stress over it too much, though. I'm sure he could be happy with a similar toy, right, huh??....Yeah, right!

Well I do hope you find it soon.

The Tractor Supply Company here in town sells the most wonderful mice toys that are small and rattle- the only toys my girls will play with. I found them online here-

http://www.petmarket.com/spotnips-mo...ys-p-1984.html

They go nuts for these things. You can buy them individually or in packs of 4 or 12. They have some that look as you described. My vet also sold them.

No problem - I sent my brother-in-law up there and he claims he had no problem finding them (he must of looked everywhere for them since he would not have asked for help!) Thank you! You made Cosmo's day!
post #24 of 26
Yeah!! I'm so happy Cosmo's getting his toy!

Believe me, I understand what you've gone through. Forest has a very specific type of white and silver puffy ball that he's attached to. We have somewhere in the neighborhood of 375 of them in the house, all of which eventually end up under the sofa. If he can't find them he'll sit and cry until I get the Swiffer (he gets all excited when he sees the Swiffer) and dig some out for him. Only those particular balls will do...only that brand, and only that color. Fortunately, the girls who work at our local pet shop are also in love with my funny, wobbly little handicapped boy and whenever a shipment comes in they hide all the white ones under the front counter until the next time I come in!
