Neko wants you to know that spending $3.99 for an IKEA laundry mesh is more than enough. He and Cali play raucously inside their meshes. Well—he does. She’s smitten with the $1 moving box we bought for our daughter. You could put out beaucoup bucks on that big-chain pet store thang. The laundry thingy is better.
The cat hides behind the mesh, but can see through. He (or she) can attack string, birdy feather toys, or whatever else suits you (or the kitty). I place a Littlest Pet Shop figurine—or, better, a plastic bottle cap on top of the mesh—and Neko bats it off. We make a good game of his fearsome play from behind and through the mesh.
