Ripple Rug

Posted by terrepruitt on June 1, 2020

We usually buy gifts for our cats for Christmas. But our cats have so many toys that I didn’t think they needed more stuff last Christmas. They end up with boxes. Sometimes our intent is to let them have the box, but sometimes it is sitting in the room waiting to be taken out to recycle and one of the cats decides they like it, so of course it becomes their box. They also like paper and bags. So packing paper and paper bags that are destined to be put in recycle or put away for use at another time end up being a cat possession. So yes, it is probably unnecessary for me to say we look like we have trash all over our house because basically we do. But is it trash that our cats play with, sit on, sit under, etc. I am sure you understand – those of you with cats. Well, as I said I wasn’t going to buy anything for them for Christmas but I kept seeing the Ripple Rug. I saw it on ads, I saw it on Tweets, and I saw it on posts, so at the last minute I ordered one. I didn’t think it would arrive on time but who cares, they are cats. They don’t know WHEN it is they are receiving a gift.

There is a tree, there are gifts, and again all the boxes and paper that end up hanging out for days – in addition to the boxes and paper that have actually become permanent, so I didn’t give them their rug at Christmastime. In fact I actually waited until Quarantinetime. I thought that since we were all “locked” in the house and the cats were stuck with us they might want something new to distract them, so I took out the Ripple Rug. They love it.

It is quite entertaining.

When we first took it out of the Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia online, Zoom meetings, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, Nia Technique, Yin Yoga, stretch classes, online exercise, Zoom classes, virtual yogapackage it was very stiff and remained “tented” very well. But now after two months of cats sitting on it and lying on it, it does not “tent” as well. When I opened the package I read the instructions that came with it and they say how to remedy that, but I have not yet bothered because we are still playing fine with it.

 

 

 

 

Nessa, the tortie, will lie in it for hours. I think that she plans on attacking someone when they walk by but then she ends up falling asleep, but I could be wrong. She just LOVES to lie in it. She also loves to have the wand from their flyers poke out through the holes and edges. That is her latest favorite game.

Teagan just really loves to lie on it.

Nessa and Teagan will both play with each other using the Ripple Rug as a place to hide and smack at the other one.

It is quite large so it takes up a large portion of real estate in the living room, but whatever. It keeps them entertained.  And me too to be honest!
