Ok so the piece of string may not be the second greatest cat toy ever. This one didn’t really work out so well. Well it did for a few days but then my cat tore it to shreds and ate it. He was so cute playing with it and tossing it around then pouncing on it but that only lasted about three days. Then I noticed that the string was about half the size it was before. Finally I found about an inch of it left and threw it away. He did not get another one.So, it may have been a good idea at the time but I must admit it is not the second greatest cat toy ever.
