Chewy toy x 2.5

New chewy toys

New chewy toys

Not so long ago, I wrote about Cagney & Bezukhov’s favourite chewy toy that has become threadbare.  I have been adjusting the remaining stringy bits to provide maximum illusion of bulk but it was starting to look rather ridiculous when one or other of them attempted to “hide” behind it.  I decided it was time to upgrade!  Unfortunately, I could not remember where I bought the original one so I had a major internet search ahead of me.

The new one had to be the same as the existing one, albeit in its original form.  There are many chewy toys around, made out of similar materials but I inspected the photo of each contender closely as I knew the slightest deviation from the original could  mean yet another toy to go in the Rejected Toys box.

Fortunately, I found them!  I was so pleased, I bought two!  One for current chew & one for future chew.

The new chewy toy has been placed where the threadbare one usually is & the threadbare one has been moved along the perch a bit.  I thought that if they were quite close together, Cagney & Bezukhov could each sleep behind one, even if one would be more hidden than the other.

I should perhaps add that the preferred bedtime sleeping spot is ‘behind the chewy toy’ & there is still a rota of sorts on whose turn it is.  (Cagney probably sleeps behind it an average of 7 out of 10 times).  Having two chewy toys may reduce the nightly bedtime faffing routine.

You can see in the last photo that a section of the new chewy toy has already been chewed off, exposing the knot & the first in-between piece of red string.

    Hey, these look like they would make good cat toys as well. . .hanging off the end of a wand. If I can find some cool cord, I’ll make some for kitty, but with cord, not wire, in the middle. You could probably recycle the wires on these for birdy with new cord. Just wind with a little Gorilla Glue per directions.

    Ptak looooooves these too! Planet Pleasures rock. We have a bunch of their toys, bought off Amazon. Even Mavi plays with them, and usually he only likes shoes. Your boys are too cute sleeping with them!

    The sausages clearly need some chewy toys (they ripped the bark off a couple of inches of willow twig yesterday, in protest at being locked up) but there’s no room in the mini manor for anything else!
