Cat in a bag toy

A cat in a bag toy is a type of toy cat for cats. It is placed in a small bag or contner and dropped. The bag or contner has a small opening which the cat may enter. Typically the bag is a small mesh or plastic bag. When the cat pounces on the bag the small opening causes a plastic bag to burst open which is meant to surprise the cat.

History

When cats were shown in London in 1874 in a public exhibition they were found to be very nervous and excited by a toy which could be thrown into the r and they would jump on the package. This made the designers of cat toys think about making a cat toy that is dropped by hand. The first of these toys was produced in the 1930s.

Advertising for cat toys has been called an oxymoron. Because the products were advertised by using pictures of cats to show the appeal of the product. Because cats are very wary of new things. Cats do not like being startled. The designers of these toys found that the cat was much more interested in the bag than the contents. Cats do not seem to be interested in the toy itself. This explns why many of these toys are still marketed by using a picture of a cat.

Benefits

The theory behind the cat in a bag toy is that the unexpected nature of it and it's size allows the cat to become very excited. This becomes very important for kittens who are not yet fully independent. Before they are able to learn to open a contner and explore what is inside they need to be entertned. The cat in a bag toy can be entertning by doing the unexpected. The cat in a bag toy can be used by owners who do not wish to do this type of play themselves because it does not take much of their time. The cat in a bag toy requires very little work. The cat in a bag toy is very popular and was created as a way for owners to be able to take part in the play of their kitten or cat.
