Clearance Toys = Bad Toys
The human was shopping when she came across the cutest little clearance holiday cat toy. It’s a little roll of fabric (soft on the outside, crackly on the inside) stuffed with soft fluff and likely catnip. It’s the perfect size and texture and weight to be carried around in little kitty mouths. Better yet, it cost 70 cents!
Of course, as soon as the excited human got it home and presented it to her overlords, the real games began. Caesar did come over and sniff it, but did little else. When none of the other felines gave it so much as a cuff, the discouraged human picked it up and brought it upstairs figuring she’d put it in Caesar’s kitty bed.
The toy disappeared for a few days, then reappeared. So far no one seems to be claiming credit for that. Clearly, clearance toys = bad toys. On the other hand, paying good money for toys doesn’t seem to improve their odds of being used either. Maybe they just have too many toys. Or maybe they just like to mess with the human’s head.
