We’re many months into stay-at-home boredom. Even the pets - who at first enjoyed the extra time and attention - seem a bit jaded and inclined to yawn these days. How better to spice things up than to spend an inordinate amount of time and effort to build a “Whack-A-Mole” toy for the cats? My advance apologies to any mole sympathizers.
I’ve seen these before and I know you can buy versions of this on Amazon and elsewhere, but one of my goals was to have a “hatch” over the top of each critter. Seems that this would preserve some mystery and keep the cats from just reaching in there and mauling the poor things. Yes, that was a feeble ‘mole malice’ atonement effort.
So, I whiled away the hours/days/weeks building this goofy thing. I like the fact that I can push up on any lever where the hatch has fully opened and that this will make it close again.
Now the dog is giving me a guilt trip because I haven’t designed any canine entertainment products. It never ends.
