They like the new pads but old habits are hard to break. If I sprinkle catnip on the pads, they use them for a couple days before, "Meh". Mija uses one very frequently. Pilchard, only when catnip is sprinkled on them. She will, however, lie down on one, just lie there.
"Supposed", that's the operative word here. I picked it up off the floor last night after I accidentally kicked it into a corner. They played with it for awhile, but grew tired of it and there it sat on the floor until I kicked.
It's hard to figure out what these girls would like to play with. We have several different kinds of mice, catnip infused or catnip stuffed small animals, glitter balls and poles to which strings are attached. They play for about 20 minutes and then seem to be bored and wander away. They aren't deprived in any sense of the word. I just thought it would be nice to get them something to stimulate the sense of play. I put this in the toy box and will bring it out in another month when it might seem new. Perhaps I shouldn't look "outside the box", if you will. Maybe a couple of boxes taped together would be enough.
