Title: Boingo Ball
Post by: Viper on June 14, 2006, 07:50:50 PM
Like the name suggests, our fuzzies go "Boingo (http://www.multipet.com/Shopping/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=MultiPet&category%5Fname=Cat+Toys&product%5Fid=BoingoBall)" for it.  :)

With the 4$ price tag (at Super Pet), we bought several so that we have some spares for when one gets damaged. They love it so much that we don't want to risk having non in the house.

However, please note that ferrets can "damage" the rubber ring as they play so you must be carefull to inspect it reguarly in order to prevent intestinal blockage.

Ours love it too, especially Calvin.  He'll hunt down the ball if someone is playing with it, no matter where he is.  I think Peanut plays with it just to annoy him.

Nicky and Bella do the same thing. We've been having a ball watching them steal the ball from each other! :lol:

We're ferret owners.  I thought that was enough to signify that we had lost it at some point in the distant past!!   ;)

I've seen those and thought they would be interesting to try with ferrets, til I realized the "boingo" part was made of rubber.... I've come far too close to blockage surgery as the result of rubber objects that I refuse to keep anything with rubber in reach of my fuzzies.  I suggest you watch your balls very closely for signs of wear or missing pieces.

I'm finding that these balls last a surprisingly long time.  They're pretty tough.  We've been using the same one for months and it's only now that it's starting to show wear (mostly teeth marks).

we finally got 2 yesturday. Bear freaks out and attacks your legs thinking he can knock you down to get it. To say he loved it was an understatment.

Should anyone consider purchasing some, although they are potentially dangerous to your fuzzies  :unsure:  (as ferretfan pointed out), the Pet Valu (http://www.petvalu.com/) located at 2641 Alta Vista (at Bank St.) has them for 2.99$. Plus, they are currently on sale (25% off) which brings them down to 2.23$ each...    ;)

we only let them have them under supervision. It works though, with their 3 second attention spam they never have enough time to chew it:P
