Recap + Giveaway: When Your Cat’s Treat Time is Also Play Time (Purina Friskies Pull ‘N Play)

Purina Pull 'N Play - Cats Treat Time Play Time - Edmonton Pets

Mike and I love our furbabies! Thor (our Queen tabby) is almost 5 years old, Loki (the sweet ginger) is 3, Olive (our beagle) is 2, and as of last weekend, we added a fourth to our family – Artie (a Husky cross, who is just 3 months old!)

We would do anything for our babies and that includes getting them toys and treats and other fun things to enrich their lives because they enrich ours!

House cats in general tend to live a fairly lazy lifestyle. While Loki has impressive metabolism and is super slim and fit, Thor sadly did not luck out with her genes and is a bit on the heavier side (still beautiful!)

We try to incorporate fitness into their lives but sometimes it can be difficult – especially when our beagle Olive comes barrelling in to whatever activity they’re doing and effectively ruining it (classic Olive!)

Purina Pull ‘N Play + treats!

That’s why we were so excited to receive this package from Purina, featuring their new Friskies Pull ‘N Play Pack!

Combining treats with playtime? It’s like Thor’s dream toy.

Friskie’s Pull ‘N Play comes with an adorable wobbly cat toy (his name is ‘Wobbert’).

You open him up, insert treats – including Pull ‘N Play Strings that come out of the top of Wobbert’s head – and then set it down for the cats to play!

Sticking treats into ‘Wobbert!’

It took no time at all for Thor and Loki to figure out that if they poked and nudged Wobbert, treats would come out of his side.

I was also surprised (though I shouldn’t have been because she LOVES treats) at how quickly Thor got her teeth around the Pull ‘N Play String and gobbled it all up. She loved pulling out the string treat!

Our cats loved their new toy! When treat time can also be play time, that’s a win!

The Pull ‘N Play isn’t about giving your cats intense exercise or anything, but it does make treat time a lot more fun and interactive!

We had a blast watching Thor and Loki batting around Wobbert and pulling out the treat strings.

Curious about their Pull ‘N Play!

In our case, Thor was getting a bit too much love from Wobbert (she is the #MostPlayfulCat – especially if treats are involved), so we had to pick out a few treats to give to Loki separately (Thor needs to learn how to share toys a bit better). Haha.

In case you’re wondering, we did have to play with them in a separate, closed room so Olive (and now Artie) wouldn’t ruin their fun, lol. Full house of furbabies!

The Pull ‘N Play comes to Canada beginning this month (March 2016)!

They’re super affordable – you can pick up Wobbert for just $5.99.

The edible string packs (which there are three flavours of – chicken and cheese, salmon and shrimp, and tuna and crab) are just $2.99 (for 18 strings/pack).

The Friskies Party Mix treats (that get dispensed out of Wobbert’s side), are just $1.79.

Thor especially loves her Pull ‘N Play.

Lots of fun for almost no money at all.

We bring out Wobbert once a day to play with Thor and Loki (we do limit the amount of string/treats we put in him though because they’ve gotten so good at getting the treats), and I’m excited to give away a Pull ‘N Play Prize Pack for one of you readers!

Enter below for a chance to win a Purina Friskies Pull ‘N Play Prize Pack that includes a Pull ‘N Play kit, Friskies cat treats, a $50 Visa gift card, some swag and more! The total value of the prize pack is $200.

  • ashley k

    My cat is a big fan of fetch with rubber hair bands. Snap them across the room and he’ll go dashing after it and bring it back for another round. It’s so cute!

  • Arly

    My cat is a jumper, he loves chasing and jumping for his favorite toy on a rope.

    our cats love a good laser shone on the wall. I think I’ve never seen a cat body check anything until that red dot got too high up the wall…!

  • Chris

    I love playing with my cat Peter! He’s a very respectful cat, so he waits until I’m ready before he has fun. I have a pink shoelace that he loves to follow, chase, and jump on. I’m sure he’d bat this thing over with love.

  • My favourite appetizer at the new @thebutternuttree is their Grilled Bannock topped with wild mushrooms, berries, pumpkin seeds and "winged kelp." 🤗 It was delicious! The Broccoli with crispy pork belly and leek ash coated duck egg (check my IG Story for #yolkporn!) was also excellent. Beautiful plates and beautiful views at this restaurant too (high ceiling windows all over). We had a lovely dinner last night at the #yegmedia event in a private room with #yegfood friends! Pricing wise- appetizers at #TheButternutTree are $13-$19, entrees are $28-$44, so it would make for a bit pricier a night out but you'll find a lot of unique ingredients here. You can tell lots of care is going into these dishes. Congrats on your opening Chef Downey & team! And thanks @bonafidemediapr for inviting us to check it out. #MeetatTBT ☺️
