Bells in Cat Toys are music in Hell

Like an idiot I bought a set of balls at the Dollar Tree with a bell inside them.  They are hard plastic, so they make noise on hardwood floors, all on their own.  But when you add the jingle bell inside, it’s annoying beyond comprehension.

I have taken them away and hidden them several times, but Tim is very good at hide and seek.  I think I’m going to have to just throw them away.

I’m so cheap that it bothers me to throw away a $1 cat toy.  Actually 50 cents.  There were two balls in each package.

I need to just to it.  I can’t get the bell out without ruining the toy.  I had hoped at one point to do that.  But it’s not possible without a great deal more effort than a 50 cent toy is worth.

WHY do cat toys have bells?  It’s a terrible noise.  Terrible.

  1. Can you keep the balls by the door and just toss them out to Tim right before you leave?

    One of my siblings anonymously put a toy school bus that talks and sings songs under the Christmas tree for my niece. As soon as she unwrapped it and the noise began, her father (a stay-at-home-dad) glared at all of us and yelled, “All right, which one of you is going to hell?”
