Thoroughly Poetic and Thankful Thursday

Our poem today for Angel Sammy’s poetical Thursday is or entry into Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop as well. Our poem also is a review for a great new product, the PetSafe FroliCat Fox Den. This week’s prompt letter is “K.”


Kitties Just Like to Have Fun

Kitties are fun; they love to play
And kick up their paws all day,
Until they fall over for a long nap,
Probably in their human’s lap.
It’s fun to play with another cat’s tail
But with a claw the player might be impaled.
So a faux tail created as a toy
Is a unique thing any kitty would enjoy.
The Fox Den toy from FroliCat
Offers a darting tail for a cat to bat.
Just turn it on and watch the action;
It is definitely a cat attraction.
Kitties Blue are such lucky kitties
To receive this PetSafe FroliCat giftie.
They only need to give it a fair review
Then give a Fox Den to one of you.
Leave a comment for a chance to win.
Your kitty will play with it again and again.

Still being a kitten and full of energy, Cooper Murphy has been enjoying the FroliCat Fox Den more than the others. And it does keep him from attacking the tails of his fursibs.


FrolicCat Fox Den

The fox tail moves in and out of the den as well as back and forth to attract and keep your cat’s attention.

We first set up the Fox Den in the kitchen on the tile floor but have since moved it to carpet. Cooper Murphy caught his claw in the tail and managed to flip over the Fox Den one time and drag it across the floor another. On the carpet, it stays put. (All photos show it on the tile.)


FroliCat Fox Den


The Fox Den requires three AA batteries. It has a flat integrated button on the side to turn on the toy. When pressed quickly, the unit will start a ten-minute play session.

Though PetSafe recommends that cats be supervised when playing with all toys, the FroliCat Fox Den does have a Play-All-Day mode. When in this mode, the toy will turn on for ten minutes then rest for two hours prior to turning on again. This mode lasts for six-and-one-half hours. During this time, a motion sensor is also on. Should a cat walk within three to four feet of the front of the toy, it will turn on for a two-minute play session. The Fox Den may be turned off anytime during the Play-All-Day mode.

The Kitties have not tried the Play-All-Day mode as Dad Tom and I have been home and able to turn on the Fox Den whenever one of Kitties Blue (usually Cooper Murphy) shows an interest.

Kitties Blue, especially the youngsters, give a paws-up recommendation for this fun toy.

As stated in the poem, we are giving away one PetSafe FrolicCat Fox Den to a reader. To have the opportunity to win, please leave a comment on this post prior to next Wednesday, March 1, at 5 p.m. EST. Winner will be announced the following day.

We have another fun toy from PetSafe FrolicCat, which we will be reviewing and giving away next week.

Disclosure: Kitties Blue received two PetSafe FroliCat Fox Dens free of charge—one to test and review and one to give away to a reader. We were not financially compensated for this post. The opinions are completely my own and those of Kitties Blue based on our experiences.

If you are regular followers, you know that we don’t normally post on Mondays. However, today is an extra special occasion. It is Dad Tom’s birthday. We certainly couldn’t miss that!     We know our dad is pretty ancient, but Mom said it’s not necessary for us to blab his age. We don’t think […]

Sunday Selfies: Week #132 Today is a very special Sunday Selfies blog hop, as it is two hops in one. But more about that shortly. First I need to show you my selfie. I took this while I was on the top of the cat tree. I got myself centered very well, but unfortunately the […]

Caturday Art     Today’s art was created using the Beauty effect from LunaPic, followed by the HDR-ish filter from Picasa, a mini-star border from piZap and the mat and frame from Picasa. The interesting thing about this art, however, is the subjects. That is Astrid on the left and Lisbeth on the right sharing […]

Sunday Selfies: Week #131 Most of you know by now that I suck at taking selfies. Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop our mom from occasionally making me take some. That happened yesterday when I made the mistake of requesting some attention. Next thing I knew…she stuck the iPhone in my paws and told me to snap […]
