I was gifted, once again, by my friends at Influenster.com – but this time it was a product for my cats!  I have 3 kitties who I loooove. I only ever had dogs growing up, and never really liked cats until I got to college and my roommate adopted about 12 over the course of 1 year.  She was a crazy cat lady in the making, and sorta rubbed off on me.  I still want a dog really badly, but for now I just pour all my love onto these little cuties.

The day the Temptations VoxBox arrived, the cats were very excited to find out what they were getting.  Lucy was all up in my business when I was trying to take photos of it.

What we got: Temptation Cat Treats, Snacky Mouse Treat Toy, and Magnet  (to try out for testing purposes)

At one point, all 3 cats were interested in the toy which then erupted into a battle of bopping each other on the head to see who would get it.

Owen won.  He loved tapping the mouse around with his nose to see where the next treat would fall out.  I fed Lucy and Meadow the treats too, since Owen was hogging the toy.  I was happy to find out that although the treats are hard on the outside, they are soft on the inside.  Lucy had to have most of her teeth removed about a year ago, but was still able to eat the treats! The treats also help reduce tartar on the cats teeth! This is definitely a win.  I really like this toy for my cats! It’s not something they’ve had before, like a fuzzy mouse that can be ripped to shreds.  It’s hard, durable, and gives them little treats for playing.  Hooray for positive reinforcement!

Here’s a little Pro/Con for anyone considering this for their cats:

Pro: cute, simple, rewards for playing, cats seem interested in playing with it, loved the treats

Cons: works best on hard flooring, hungry cat was possessive of it, non-hungry cats got bored quickly

Overall: great new toy for my cats!
