Fluff Bunnies

Fluff Bunnies. Back Story: When I got Herk he was only 8 weeks old.. a playful..fluffy ball of energy. That was before catnip. Maybe a week after we had him, my cousin & aunt sent me a care package of treats and toys .. including this one.. a fluffy blue rodent catnip filled toy.

This was the reaction:

It was like he was on CRACK. I thought his little heart wouldn't be able to take it. Oh but he loved it so so much. It was like a little blanky to him.. he brought it everywhere. The worst place I found it was in the litter box. .. why he buried it where he poops, i'll never know. (I promptly "eww'd" and washed it 1000x times before letting him have it again.) Time went by.. an ear went missing.. then an arm.. our blue buddy was going quick.

As he got older it was the only toy he'd touch. I kept looking for a replacement online.. i mean.. look at this guy:

Both limbs & ears were chewed off!! His fur was matted & faded, and his face was nearly chewed off.. and yet... the catnip in it is still strong after 2 years of abuse!

.. googling persisted... "blue cat toy"... no dice... "blue mouse"...."blue rodent cat toy"..."blue hamster"... what is this damn thing??!!

Isn't the comparison gross? I shouldn't even let it stay in my house... "blue.....".. wait, could those ears be a rabbits?.. ."blue rabbit" BINGO! 2 year search has ended!!

I ordered them promptly.. apparently the closest store they sell them in is Long Island.

.. we received them on Saturday...

and I think Herk was happy....

What you do you think?

I'll let you decide
