Sunday Selfie: Fishing on Christmas

Today we join the Sunday Selfies blog hop hosted by our friends at The Cat on My Head. (Yes, we know it's actually Tuesday. Just go with it.)

This is a picture from Christmas Day, showing Real Cats Webster and Paisley checking out their new toy. It's a Go Fish cat toy from Jackson Galaxy. Old SoLT got them this toy to help cut back on the amount of dry food they eat. If they have to fish the food out from between the fishy tails, they will eat slower, eat less ... and maybe the dog will eat less too.

Early reviews on this toy are mixed so far. The Real Cats seemed to enjoy figuring out how to get the treats out of it, but when old SoLT replaced the treats with regular dry cat food, they reacted by looking up at her and basically saying, "What's wrong with you? You're supposed to just give us that, not make us work for it."

The Real Cats also got a wand toy with a "ground iguana," also by Jackson Galaxy (we all have a little crush on Jackson Galaxy right now. Don't tell anyone!) The iguana has been a pretty big hit with Paisley, who has enjoyed chasing it. Webster ... well, Webster likes to watch it go by. We like that the "string" is metallic, so somekitty (Paisley) can't chew through it.

The links on the pictures below are Amazon Associates links. If you purchase the product through the link, old SoLT and I could get a little coin for our kibble account. Thank you!


  1. We are so happy you still decided to join the hop on Tuesday. Our mommy LOVES Jackson Galaxy...even more so after she got to interview him earlier this year. He is a "real" person...not like a celebrity! Mom has tried some of those slow-feeding items. We ignored them, but we haven't tried this one. Looks like some great gifts. Have fun!
