How to Chews Toys

Welcome all to my class HOW TO CHEWS TOYS! 
This is going to be a jam packed class ... here is the syllabus :
1- Squeakies
2- Stuffies
3- Ropes
4 - Frisbees
5- Treat Toys

Let's get started...

Squeakies are my personal favorite so we will cover them first.  The three main things you gotta knows about squeakies is that they 1 - Squeak (the louder the better). 2 - They have hold ability (they tends to be rubber so they can slips out of your mouth when they gets drooly.  See my football great example of squeakablity and hold ability.
Shawnee could you please demonstrate for the class the foreign language category of squeakies?

"I want toys that make sounds like wot they is.  Like the froggie in the picture, he do say RIBBIT RIBBIT "
Thank you...
Oh and #3 for Squeakies -- squish ability.  My football has that too.
Now Stuffies, who doesn't love a stuffy?  They need to be soft and cuddly... Like this Teddy.
Anyone care to demonstrate?  Oh Rory..... Yes that is a perfect example of soft and cuddly! (and comfy!)
Susie, yes I see you are an expert on stuffy cuddle ability too!
I also think Tug ability is important to a stuffy...
Nola? Do you have an example of a really important characteristic of a stuffy?
Oh yes, catch ability - GOOD ONE!

I see Weenie has some good stuffy grabbing skills too!

What about you Bites?
Tear ability - yup we all see that teddy's bum..... and that's one of the biggest problems with Stuffies.... random explosions...
"Divert your eyes"

Whew... that was close.....

Oh nos... Stella? Rory? are you ok... stuffy explosions are the worst.

Mona?  Did you get stuffy guts on you?

Now ropes... they are perfect for tugging and shaking, and swinging, and giving the hoomans bruises.

Finn, could you please demonstrate?
Wow that was great, looks like you are tugging & shakin that rope toy at the same time... impressive!
Rory and Stella, could you please demonstrate pair rope Tugging?

Most excellent, but I feel Rory may have the "upper paw"  BOL.. I cracks myself up.

Ok I is back.....Frisbees.  What can I say abouts frisbees.
They suck.
I can't figure them out, I can't catch them, and I can't pick them up.

The hoomans can't throw them either.......
They land and I dig and dig and I can't pick them up.

I do know a few frisbee experts though, so you'll should ask them

Last but not least, Puzzle toys

Usually you gets treats, but you gots to work for them.  Like rolling around the cubes until a treat falls out...
My personal favorite - the Vader kitteh puzzle cube, BOL.
But the problem with the puzzle toys is they are exhausting...

Well that is it for class today, thank you for joining us and a special thank you for everyone that demonstrated their toys today.  There is always so much to learn about new toys.  It's like there is an endless selection!

  7. Good Afternoon Teacher Tucker Sir,
    This was a Major Success of a class. I so agree about those frisbee thingys... I KNOW that they were invented by SQUIRRELS. I chase them.. and then I am soooooo disappointed by NOT being able to ... do anythingy.. GOOD with them. I mean .. they don't Squeak or have GUTS to rip out or nothin. I'm just sayin.

    You did an amazing job with the class... and I am sorry that Puddles put that TACK on your chair and then hit you with one of her Spit Wads.. At LEAST it didn't show up on YOUR furs.. like the ones she splattered ME with.
    BRAVO Tucker!!! Grrrrreat Job!
