A few years ago I found a way to BOTH make Christmas last all year long AND be able to actually afford to get the things for my family (with fur and without) without breaking the bank over a span of two months: I buy things throughout the year and hide them safely away. Most of my shopping is done on Amazon – which is where I bought this great Cat Toys Variety Pack from.
I intended to save it for Christmas morning and open it for our cats… but… well… as you can see, things don’t always go as planned.
When UPS brought the Amazon box, the cats came running. They know that an UPS delivery always, always, always means they get a new box to play with. When they gathered around, I couldn’t help but think what a fun afternoon it’d be if I gave them this gift early.
As you can see, the thought of it was more than I could fight off and we had a little Christmas in May party right then and there!
Their excitement and joy was palpable and reminded me of kids… the ones that walk on two feet (generally) and aren’t covered with hair… on Christmas morning. Furry kids get just as excited – going in circles, not knowing which toy to play with first.
If you have cats, you know exactly what I mean when I say that I’m not sure who enjoyed themselves more – them or me.
This is a wonderful Cat Toys Variety Pack – it was even better than I’d expected it to be. For such a great price (between $12 – $13), I wasn’t sure what kind of quality to expect from each individual toy. I was surprised and delighted to see that the quality was excellent. Each toy is very, very well made and is standing up to intense play perfectly!
- Contains Assorted 20 toys.
- Keep your cat busy when you are away.

- Holiday, birthday or everyday, this cat treats/toys gift set is just what your kitty ordered.
I tried to take several pictures to show off the variety of toys – as well as our babies enjoying them… but it’s very difficult to photograph excited, fast-moving cats!
The picture at the bottom is of Nacho and was taken a few hours after the toys had arrived and had been played with fiercely. Each cat was worn out (just like human kids!) and had found their own favorite place to recuperate and conserve energy. Nacho was in his favorite bed, resting up from all the activity – I pranced one of the toys in front of him and he sat right up.
Sure enough, he hopped back up and decided it was playtime again. The girls (one at a time) all joined in and we had another round.
In the weeks since, the toys are played with again and again. I like to gather them all together and present them like I did that day – the excitement is the same each time.
Again… I am not sure who enjoys it all the most, but I think she might just be typing these words.
