I was sooo excited the day the toys arrived that I could barely control myself!! I meowed and meowed to my Mom to tell her to hurry up and open the box!
I have good news and bad news....I will give you the good news first!
You all know that I am obsessed with mousies right? How could you NOT know, I have told you about it enough!
Well...when my Mom opened the box and I saw 2 furry "Squeaky Mice" I about lost my mind!
They are the purrfect size for swatting all over the place!! They are furry and I think they are catnip scented (my Mom forgot to check that out) because the second I had them in the death trap of my iron paws some serious bunny kicking took place!

OMC! Do I ever love these! I was carrying them around the house, left them in the hallway...brought them into the kitchen. I am sooo proud of my "Squeaky Mice!" They are catabulous! One really cool thing is when you leave them in strategic places you get to hear nasty words that your Mom and Dad say when they accidentally step on them! They SQUEAK!! (not your Mom and Dad, but the mousies squeak!!! yep, hence the name "Squeaky Mice!") They are mucho cool!!!
Then we went on to the next toy, the Funkitty® Doorway Dangli™. I was a little concerned.
Ohhh don't get me wrong, I LOVED it in the package. I had some serious reservations about my clutzy Mom being able to use this properly. You see, this is the same woman that took a macrame class in college and the professor said my Mom was the ONLY student she couldn't teach macrame to in her 25 year teaching career.
So I studied....
I felt my quality control measures were fine and that even my "any toy involving strings or cord" challenged Mom could figure this one out!
Well...my friends, when my Mom removed the packaging I had a good old time playing with the Funkitty® Doorway Dangli™ as a toy that was being held by my Mom, (not the way it was intended to be used, but I still loved it), the mouse-like tail attached to a blue plastic clam shell that dispenses treats or kibble, tickled my nose and piqued my interest. I stood on my hind legs and swatted and boxed, having a regular feline fun fest...until....my Mom went to hang it on our door...and....ready for this????
SHE BROKE IT!!
Soooo....Mom was a nervous wreck cause she didn't want to ruin my review (way to go Mom, you are destroying my rep here)...so she searched for a video of how the toy WILL work when someone who knows what they are doing attaches it correctly, and here you go!
It looks like at least SOMEBODY knew how to properly put this together! As you can see it is a FUN toy (but I wouldn't know that, thanks to my Mom)...
I wanted to give you an honest review of this, so I can only speak from the standpoint of my Mom totally messing it up! My Mom and I weren't compensated in any way for this review (thank goodness or we would be in HUGE trouble!!), but the kind lady at Premier Pet Products did send us these great toys to try and we are most appreciative!! At least my Mom didn't decimate my "Squeaky Mice" (yet)...they TOTALLY ROCK!!
Please go to www.premier.com and check out the great items they have for cats and dogs...., please check out the Funkitty® Doorway Dangli™ , but remember...if your Mom acts as if she hasn't a brain in her head and no opposable thumbs to properly attach this to your door frame....you may want to put this one together yourself!!!
