Stress Ball


Socks

A stress ball is a malleable toy, which is squeezed in the
hand and manipulated with the fingers, ostensibly to
relieve stress or muscle tension or to exercise the
muscles of the hand. (info from wiki)

Or if you're in a pinch, a catnip ball works just fine!

  4. My Dinky has two balls filled with catnip that she sucks and plays with when she is uptight about something, i.e. when I run out of tuna, chicken and the other things she eats.

    What did you think I was going to say? No need to answer that! Socks looks as if he is enjoying himself.

  7. Your Socks seems to be enjoying his stress ball. :-)
    Our Toby loves his little birdie ball with a touch of cat nip.

    By the way, on your TP~ Kirkland from Costco is great! Absolutely no dust. I dislike those puff rolls. :(

    I trust you are having a beautiful day~

  13. Hi Betsy - I had one for my mother when she had her strokes, as a form of exercise ... but I've often seen the catnip ones for the pussy cats - they love it don't they ... I'm sure you've got catnip growing in the garden? Have a good weekend - cheers Hilary

    1. The real stress balls...the ones for humans....really work, I hear! I have arthritis in my hands, so
      they wouldn't be fun for me to use, though.
      No catnip in the garden. I tried it once and they ate it down to the dirt the first day! lol...

    2. My sister-in-law's cat just lies in theirs! Ok - now I understand why you don't have catnip! Enjoy the weekend ... H
