One of my work colleagues has loaned me a long orange toy for our three cats. It is about four feet long and has holes in it at intervals. The cats can jump in and out, and play with various toys hanging on the inside of the tube. Last night we were regularly entertained by strange noises coming from the dining room, as all three chirruped at each other to "come and play". Then came the slithering sound as it was hurled across the room with an Exocet Missile Cat on the inside, propelling it into various pieces of furniture.
