Boys and Burger

I had to refill Gus’ prescription today – actually I had called it in last week but got hung up at work and couldn’t pick it up until today.  I don’t know if this was the trigger but this morning there was a lot of hissing between him and Calla.  He was hanging about the entryway to under the bed and when he got too close she would hiss at him.

While there I noticed that the vet was selling these catnip toys that look like food.  This one is a big burger – there are Oreos, doughnuts and fortune cookies.

They liked it a bit, and even more when I enhanced it somewhat by slipping some loose catnip between the bus and condiment layers.

It turns out this toy was even made locally, in my own town.

There’s one good thing about Julie having a mild catnip reaction…it keeps him from destroying the little burger!

      I can send you some full rez ones, or you can buy a sample from their web site and steal the design…

      The website has a zoom tool on its picture. The cheese, lettuce/pickle and ketchup/tomato are just a single piece of felt. The green one is cut with little waves.

      The burger is two round circles joined by a third strip to make a disc. Each bun is a round piece with a larger round one sewn to it to crumple. The dents in the bun are thread piercing the entire thing and holding it together.

    Oh, I need that toy for Norman. He steals the real burgers anyway so he might as well have the toy burgers too 😉
