Are you struggling with a Monday hating lasagna peeling cat whose lazy lifestyle is turning into a health concern? If they’re not interested in climbing off your computer keyboard to chase mice, chances are they are Nerf blaster the fires catnip discs instead of foam, it could be a better motivation to make them more active.
If you’re a dog owner, you may have already seen Nerf introduce a number of foam toys for pets too, including a tennis ball bazooka that can shoot balls up to 15 yards. It could be argued that it is easier to train a smaller dog in the park, but in reality, it’s a clever way to play with Nerf toys in public without shame. But why should dogs have all the fun? Cats need exercise too, and cat owners deserve a better tool than a feather at the end of a string tied to a short stick.
The people of Blaster Hubwho regularly test the latest and greatest deals from Nerf, recently tried the Nerf Catnip Disc Blaster (which is exclusive to Petco) and found it to be about what you’d expect from a $ 15 toy blaster. A manually primed, spring-loaded mechanism launches one of three included flying catnip discs about 10 feet, which is probably why Nerf is promoting the toy as ideal for kittens rather than adult cats. If you want more coverage, Nerf makes more powerful blasters that can fire foam discs at distances of up to 50 feet, so maybe invest in some catnip spray and give the discs a splash or two before loading the funnel.
If you have a pair of AAA batteries lying around, the catnip blaster also has a built-in laser projector, which is really just a bright red LED that shines through a plastic lens and creates a glowing bullseye image on the floor. At distances of more than a foot, that bullseye will simply become a blurry spot, but when the lights are dim, it might be enough to entice a cat into a frantic chase if it’s tired of the flying targets. If you’re too busy to bother with your cats but want them to feel involved, this could be a cheap and easy solution for Frisbee.
