If there is one thing all cats have in common is patience especially if it means sitting at a hole in a skirting board waiting for a mouse to pop out. They can do it for hours!

The new Cheese electronic toy from Petsafe, replicates this waiting game with two bright yellow mice popping out of this “block of Swiss cheese”.

The toy has a Play-While-You-Are-Away mode which means that cats can play when the Big Mouse (you) is away. It also has an automatic battery switch off after 15 minutes of play to conserve the battery power.

I love electronic toys which promote a cat’s natural instincts to pounce and hunt and this toy does just that.

And it’s stylish! I am quite happy to leave it lying around on the floor.

The Cheese gets my Must Have Stamp of Approval.

tip of the day

If you are traveling with your pet, serve food in throw-away dishes or plates, depending on their preference. This makes for quick and easy clean up when you don’t have access to a kitchen to wash dishes.

The Must Have Stamp of Approval is based on my personal opinion and the test experiences of the Reigning Cats and Dogs product testers as well as my personal knowledge of the product category. The Must Have Stamp of Approval is designed to advise pet parents on products that will in some way improve their pet’s health and well being, or, their own experiences as a pet parent. Manufacturers are welcome to submit information and samples of new and innovative products for testing. The product testing team consists of dogs and cats of different temperaments and activity levels etc in an attempt to cover a lot of bases and produce worthwhile reviews. The team loves what they do and get to keep the products so they can show off to their friends and further spread the word.
