Cody's FroliCat™/ PetSafe Colossal Cat Toy Birthday Give-Away!!!!

I cannot believe it!! Today my precious boy is EIGHT YEARS OLD!!! Wow!!!!! It is so hard to believe that so much time has passed. I am grateful every day for having adopted Cody a mere two weeks after my Angel Bobo crossed the Bridge at the age of eighteen.

Cody is one of the most fearless, feisty, playful, determined, cuddly, loving, stubborn, food-obsessed, friendly and oh-so-adorable kitties you could ever meet ,(but I admit that I am biased!)

Back in December when we featured the FroliCat Pounce on our blog, I knew I wanted to do a most special give-away for Cody's eighth birthday. I contacted my "magic elf" that hooked me up with most of my FroliCat toys, (and a NEW PetSafe toy that you will just die for),  and asked if a give-away were possible. My wonderful magic elf granted my wish!

My "love affair" with FrolicCat began when a friend guest blogged about the FroliCat Bolt  and I had to have it for Cody! That was the first of our FroliCat toys.

FroliCat™ BOLT™
 is an interactive laser toy that provides hours of fun for you and your cat or dog. Simply hold BOLT in your hand or place it on a flat surface, turn it on, and watch your pet pounce, chase, and bat at the exciting laser patterns. Pets love the random patterns they can chase across the floor, up the walls, and over furniture.

We completely fell in love with FroliCat from that moment! I had seen the FroliCat Pounce at a pet expo that I had attended, and had to have it for Cody. Cody and I blogged about the Pounce last December but here is a photo to refresh your memory!

FroliCat™ POUNCE™ by PetSafe® 
is an automatic hide-and-seek toy with 4 speed settings for hands-free play.

To this day Cody is completely in love with the Pounce
 and I am too! 

Now Cody has two more loves from our furiends at PetSafe! Cody couldn't believe his eyes when these toys arrived this past Monday!

Keeping with the MOUSE theme, the first of the two products we would like to show you is The Cheese by PetSafe!

The Cheese 

is an exciting game of peek-a-boo with two mice that pop out of each side of the swiss cheese block. Your cat will love the hunt! For surprise play sessions, use Play While You Are Away mode to keep cats engaged throughout the day.

Cody and I think that assembly could NOT be easier! So easy, that Cody helped me! You simply pop the batteries in and you are ready to roll! (All of the toys featured in this post are the same, super easy, no ridiculous assembly required!)

Two mice play peek-a-boo from either side of the block of cheese
Play While You Are Away mode allows spontaneous playtime throughout the day (Great for lazy kitty Moms like me!)
During single play sessions, timer automatically turns toy off after 10-15 minutes (The FroliCat Bolt and Pounce also have this feature and I LOVE it!)

Requires 3 AA batteries (IMPORTANT NOTE: Batteries are NOT included, be sure you have them on hand!)

Here are Cody and The Cheese In Action!!

Now THAT'S a lot of fun!!!
While Cody LOVED "The Cheese" his favorite of the two toys was the

FLIK is an automatic teaser that throws then hides a string to entice your cat to play. Simply turn it on and watch your curious cat stalk FLIK and try to capture the string before it pops back into the toy. Cats can’t resist trying to grab the “tail” flicking back and forth, just like a wild cat stalking hidden prey. No cat has ever had this much fun with an ordinary string before!

Automatic teaser throws and hides a string for your cat to attack (IMPORTANT!! Cody was chewing the string each and every time, possibly because he is obsessed with string. My only complaint with this toy is I would NOT leave Cody alone with it, as I would with all of the other toys featured in this post. I would be afraid he would chew through the string, because he is THAT determined. That being said, I do LOVE this toy and it is one of Cody's favorites.)
Automatic hands-free play
Shuts off after 15 minutes or when Off button is pressed
Perfect for playtime on a table, shelf, or floor (Love that it is lightweight and transportable!)
Rubber feet on bottom prevent sliding or moving (NOTE:OURS DID MOVE. Not a problem, but it DID MOVE as evidenced in the videos below)

Requires 3 AA batteries (not included)

The main things about ALL of the toys featured on this page is that Cody LOVES THEM! The FroliCat line is EASILY my favorite line of cat toys that are designed to enable a cat to entertain THEMSELVES. Owner-cat play is important, but if we are all honest, we  LOVE  toys that will keep our cat(s) occupied, often (without our having to stop everything and play), and away from the kitchen more often than not!

I find the FroliCat line to be quite sturdy, NONE of Cody's FroliCat toys are broken and unlike MANY other toys that Cody has, they are ALL played with, and played with often and enthusiastically.

Cody is in love with ALL of his FroliCat toys from PetSafe and if you live in the U.S. (our apologies to our International readers, but due to shipping costs our give-away must be exclusively in the U.S.), you have a chance to WIN!!!!


ONE LUCKY READER WILL WIN ALL of the toys mentioned in the blog post (The FroliCat Bolt, Pounce, Flik AND The Cheese toy. An approximate $108 VALUE!!!! The fact that Cody turned eight and there is an eight in that dollar amount is purely coincidental!)

TWO ADDITIONAL READERS will EACH win The Cheese toy!!! (a $29.99 value)

ENTERING IS EASY!! Simply enter on the Rafflecopter below and be sure to complete the bonus entries for more chances to win!

In full disclosure: I was not compensated for this review/give-away. I wanted to have a give-away and my "magic elf" agreed!

    1. And what pawsome toys those are that you are sharing in a givaway! No unaatended string here either...Minko would chew it right up!

  53. Happy Birthday Cody!!! Your mom was right... this is one giveaway not to miss! All of these toys are just way too cool... I really like that cheese toy, but I can see Callie loving all of them. Especially the Flik like you do.

  54. Happy Birthday Cody! Those toys look like great fun. Me and mum laughed how your head bobbed back every time the mouse stuck his nose out.
    Sorry I couldn't comment yesterday but our broadband has been on an ultra go slow the past few days and the page wouldn't load properly. It has got my mum tearing her hair out. It's not just us, our neighbours are getting the same trouble.

    1. Flynn thank you! I have to tell you (this is the Mom), that I laughed my head off at Cody's head too. He did the same thing on the Pounce review from another blog post. It cracks me up EVERY time and so far, you and I are the only ones who noticed that. I sure wish I could have opened this give-away world-wide, but it wasn't my call. :( I am grateful that the brand is being as generous as they are. Hoping that your broadband issues are solved soon, tech issues are the WORST!

  55. Happy Birthday Cody, how great that you turned 8, here's to many more Birthday's. What a great prize package, I'm sure MK would love that mouse and cheese game, she loves to catch mice. Hugs and kisses!

    What a great giveaway. I don't have any kitties because I so highly allergic. I sure wish I could have kitties though. I'd have more than one.

    Have a purrfect birthday Cody. My best to your mom. ♥♥♥

  57. Happy Birthday Cody! I hope you had a wonderful birthday

  58. Happy, Happy Birthday, Cody! So sorry we are a day late, but we hope you had a very fun day. What a cool bunch of toys you have there! Conrad is too old, and Sam just does not appreciate toys (she mostly ignores them), so we'll leave the giveaway for cats that will enjoy them more. :)

  59. Happy Happy Happy Day to you Cody! WE didn't see your post yesterday (somehow) although we did send you purrday wishes on FB. WE hope you had a wonderful happy special day yesterday.

  60. Happy, happy birthday to a sweet boy! We are sorry we are late. Blame it on you know who!! Those toys look pawsome and your Mama is sure sweet to have the giveaway. If we win, we will send it to our Auntie who lives in San Diego! :)

  61. Happy (belated) Birthday!!! What fun gifts - enjoy them and thank you and your mom for the great chance!
