Entertain Your Cats For HOURS With This Simple Idea! Why Didn’t I Think Of This?!
When you’re covered in a thick layer of fur, the warmer months can be downright brutal – especially if you don’t have any sweat glands to help regulate your body temperature. As humans, it’s up to us to create easy and fun cool-down options for our furry friends! What better way to beat the heat than with a giant ball of ice?! Obviously, cats love licking ice, but my dogs loved this, too! I hid some apple slices and chicken broth ice cubes into their ice creation (my freezer wasn’t big enough for a large balloon) and they laid on it and licked it for about an hour before it melted and they licked all of the apple slices free!
For cats, you can watch this video and see how much they loved this fun play thing! The coolest part of this video is when you realize that the balloon wasn’t totally frozen through – at one point, the cats licked a hole big enough to free a lot of the water that had been trapped inside! I’m not sure the cats realized that the ice was just frozen water judging by some of their reactions, but it was still adorable to watch! Did you see that one cat at the :45 second mark?! He seemed genuinely upset that his ice ball had leaked! Or maybe it was just the freezing cold water that surprised him.
Have you ever tried this out with your pets? My dogs love this on a hot day!
