Poke Boo is a cat toy that's really four toys in one. Each apparatus consists of a ball on a track, a scratching pad, a spring-loaded feather for batting, and a variety of mouse holes with a ball underneath. This toy is small enough that it won't take up too much space in any room, and it doesn't require batteries or electricity. With Poke Boo, your cat will be able to have fun while you're out of the house without destroying furniture or other objects.
The cost of Poke Boo is $19.99 plus $9.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows a free gift which you will receive by paying the extra shipping fee of $6.99 for a total price of $36.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buypokeboo.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Poke Boo and has taken down the website. Poke Boo may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
When your toy is facing upward ( gray side up ), you'll notice that there's a ball track around the outside and a yellow spring-loaded feather attached to the top of the gray scratch pad. Your cat can either choose to bat at the ball, swat at the feather, or give the scratch pad a good clawing. If the cat becomes tired of these activities, and you're around, you can simply flip the toy over, revealing mouse holes on the underside. You'll need to remove the spring-loaded feather before doing so. Once the toy has been flipped, the cat can then attempt to poke its paws through the holes in order to bat another ball underneath them.
Each Poke Boo has about the same circumference as a medium pizza pie, and is only a few inches thick. That means regardless of how small your living space is, having this toy out won't make it seem overly crowded. If you remove the spring-loaded feather, you'll be able to slide the toy under virtually anything when you're not using it, too.
This toy is primarily neon green, a shade that may attract the attention of cats, making them want to come play with it.
Each toy's spring-loaded feather will detach from the center of the toy and will double as yet another toy. When you're not busy, you'll be able to hold the non-feathered end of it and dangle it in front of your cat, as you would a string.
A scratch pad covers one entire side of the Poke Boo, so hopefully, your cat will be able to satisfy their scratching needs there and won't be tempted to scratch your furniture.
Some cats with owners who work outside the home end up sleeping for most of the time that their owner is gone and become overweight. With Poke Boo, however, you'll reduce the chances of that happening to your cat since they'll be able to go and play alone with the toy at any time. You can choose which side of the toy is facing upward when you leave based on how interested your cat is in each of the four activities it offers.
If you've got more than one cat, and they get along fairly well with each other, they may have fun playing with this toy together. In an ideal scenario with three cats, one would bat the ball on the track while another scratched and the other batted the feather. Alternatively, all three cats could try to snag the ball underneath the mouse holes on the other side.
Kids can have fun playing with this apparatus, too, and it'll help teach them how to play safely with a cat or cats. It's best to supervise a child when they first start playing with the cat, to ensure that they don't get too rough.
With your Poke Boo, you'll also get a mitt that will enable you to pet your cat and groom their fur at the same time. As you pet the cat while wearing the mitt, the mitt will pick up any loose hair, and you'll be able to remove this hair in one piece to dispose of it when you're done.
Many people buy a bunch of different toys for their cats, such as balls, plush mice, and pretend insects on sticks. Some of these tend to get lost under furniture, though, and many require more action from the owner than Poke Boo. With this apparatus, you'll be able to contain four stimulating toys in one convenient place, and your cat will be able to use them all independently.
If a cat doesn't have any specific cat toys to play with, they'll start turning household objects into toys. You could come home and find your toilet paper shredded, your knitting yarn all over the place, and / or your socks strewn throughout the house. By offering them an apparatus like Poke Boo, you'll dramatically decrease the chances of your cat getting bored enough to play with ( and possibly destroy ) household objects that really aren't toys.
With this toy in your home, your cat will likely use it to scratch its claws, so you won't need to frequently replace pieces of furniture that it has made a mess of by scratching. The cat may enjoy playing with this toy so much that you might not need to get any other new toys for a long time, either.
