Hello Kitty! Good-bye Iron as Monopoly Voters Make Their Choice

It’s the Year of the Cat! At least in Monopoly!  Thanks to all of the support from the fans of the CFA Facebook page!

Today, Hasbro, the makers of the family-favorite game Monopoly, revealed on Wednesday, February 6!

The boot, iron and wheelbarrow drew the least support from fans, while the Scottie dog received the most support. In the end, fans voted out the Iron.

The cat received the most votes in a close race. Edging out the diamond ring and the robot to take first place.

The new token is expected to make its debut in mid- to late 2013. Until then, fans can still buy games with the old tokens.

Join CFA in the Vote for the Cat!  Hasbro, the maker of the board game, Monopoly, is holding a Facebook contest to eliminate one of the eight current tokens which identify the players and to introduce a new token.  And, one of the proposed tokens is a CAT!

Finding the Perfect Christmas Toy for Your Cat

Play is essential to your cat’s health and well-being and a perfect opportunity for you to interact with your cat.

There are many options: Shiny teaser toys, mice filled with catnip, bizzy balls, lasers and more! When looking for the best toy for your cat, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind.

  1. Choose toys for your cat as you would choose a toy for your child.  Make sure your chosen toy has nothing that can stick him or that he can accidentally swallow. So be mindful of sharp edges, pins, string and objects that can be potentially harmful.
  2. Find toys where you and your cat can play and where she can get exercise and have a good time!  I love any kind of teaser toy, I just make sure that when I am not playing with my cat that the teaser toy is put away, just in case.

When all else fails, you can always wrap up and use a paper bag, paper box or crumpled piece of paper it works just as well!
