A friend of mine sent us All-Natural Rosie Rat from America.  They're a big hit with the Tinies and with Mooch, too, who loves rabbit fur.  Head and tail are suede, eyes and nose are painted with non-toxic paint and are handmade in USA.

I couldn't get better photos because the Tinies were going bonkers running around and jumping with them.   Cheesy

oh, nice!  I'll have to see if I can get one.  The one toy Bella played with till it was destroyed (took a week) had rabbit fur.

Hi there,

I don't believe there is any catnip on them either!  I think it's the natural rabbit fur that makes them go nuts.  My friend sent me 10 and I took 3 out around 6pm and they are all shriveled up and mangled and it's now 6am LOL.

August, thank you so much for your reply.

I have a houseful of youngsters and geezers and I would love to see my gang go as wild as the Tinies with Rosie.   Grin

From time to time, we get a Rosie Rat or two here.  My cats behave with them like they would with a real mouse--throw them in the air and catch them, bite them, and carry them around in their mouths.  The thing I like about them is that they don't have a solid body like regular toy mice, which my cats typically "skin" and then play with the "hide."  Rosie Rats are just the "hide."

I sent an email just to officially inquire if there is any catnip.

I received a very nice reply that there is no catnip at all.

I then proceeded to order 12 Rosie's............can't wait until they get here.

Right now, I'm more excited than the furkids.   Grin

Sunday and the Tinies are still going bonkers over the Rosie Rats.  Like Catbird mentioned, they have been tossing them up in the air, pouncing on them, and trotting around the apartment with them in their mouths like trophies looking for a good place to put them.

I have lots of furry mice but the Rosies are definitely different and are a huge hit.

I hope yours get as much play, Mainecoonpeg!   Cheesy   Apparently they've won some kind of "best of" in some magazine cat toy category.

Stefie loved Rosie rats, but girls weren't interested. Mitzie thinks they make a nice and stylish hat  Wink
