This post brought to you by Friskies. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Stuff Parents Need.
Friends with kitties, let me help you with the question of what to get your cat as a special gift this holiday season. My cats have been testing out a new product from Friskies that is really 3 gifts in 1, and it has been very well received (so much so that I keep finding the cats sleeping curled up around it after a play session)!
In the past I’ve always picked up Friskies Party Mix treats as holiday gifts for the cats. I have felt more at a loss about what to do for toys, though (and especially for our older cat who is pretty much a big grump and doesn’t like to play). But Wobbert, who is part of the Friskies Pull ’n Play Combo Pack, actually got her attention!
To fill Wobbert, you simply unscrew the top portion and add the Friskies Party Mix Treats. Then you take a string from the Friskies Edible Strings and thread it through the holes at the top. And as you saw in the video, as the cat bats at Wobbert, treats will fall out (but only from one angle so treats aren’t constantly falling out!).
This is such a fun way to combine play time with special treats for your furry friend, and a fun way to show them a little extra love this holiday season. You can find Wobbert and all the great Friskies treats at major retailers nationwide (a full list of retailers can be found here).
And I love that you can play with those cute edible strings with Wobbert or on their own. The string treats come in 3 flavors (Chicken & Cheese, Salmon & Shrimp and Tuna & Crab). While my cats haven’t eaten the string just yet, they have been sniffing them like crazy, so I think they are going to figure out pretty soon that they can do more than just play with them. .
So whether you have a grump like our Hattie, or a super sweet cuddlebug like our Rose, you are going to have a hit on your hands with the Friskies Pull ‘n Play pack and those great Friskies treats. That’s one more thing you can cross off your holiday shopping list!

My chunky kitty Luna Tuna has been a very good girl this year. She has always been lazy and grumpy, so when I brought home ferrets I figured she would hate them and just ignore them. But she has adapted excellent and even acvepted them as her brothers andloves to play withthem. Spending several hours a day romping up and down the halls and diving through tunnels to play. I’m

Angela Saver says
Our cat has been good except for when we open the door & she comes running in as fast as she can & then runs down stairs so we have to run after her!

I have a fospice cat with bone cancer from the local animal shelter. He’s a biter. But he still has fun chasing balls around the living room.
Sue Hull says
I have one grandfurbaby kitty that I love. His name is rocky and hes so sweet and playful. He has 3 dogs to play with and he loves teasing them. Its funny to watch them chase each other.Now my granddaughter loves to run around with all of them behind her. Nothing better than free entertainment. Lol! Thank you for the chance 🙂
My poor kitty has been petiful this year..He is getting older and he is set in his ways..He has been a little naughty he did not like the chickens that we got when they were babies..He hissed at them.Now that they have grown up so quickly in 4 months they try to get his tail and he runs now so I guess that is payback..
Laurie Nykaza says
We have 4 cats 3,7,17 and 18 years old they all all our girls and are so precious and all so funny too. They climb up on everything and peak out the windows at the neighbors.
I have 6 cats so at some point someone is ways being naughty especially my little Michonne she has her days when she is moody and likes to hiss and growl at everyone
They have been nice 🙂
Grumpy kitty Lillian has been nice this year because she is unusually friendly to her newly rescued and adopted Pomeranian “sister” Bianca.
Jennifer Dunaway says
Our cat Abby has been very naughty this year. Every time our new puppy Ellie walks by her she bats Ellie on the head and runs off.
Leah Shumack says
I have two cats who can both be very naughty and very nice! My one older kitty is VERY territorial if she’s laying on anything it’s hers…try to take it away she’ll bite you. Then she’ll spend the day snuggling afterwards and she’s also my hunter (which is very nice to keep things outta the house!)

My cat has been stealing my pens off my desk. And she has pretty much destroyed the blinds on my bedroom window. But she can be nice when she wants to be.
Melinda Stephens says
We have four cats. They have mostly been good, although they are being a bit more troublesome now that it is cold. They always want to be on my laptop or in my lap where it is warm. They have also taken to hiding in the clean laundry. toastersareflying @ gmail.com
Pam C. says
My daughter’s cat likes to “smack” at her in the morning to make her get out of bed.
Our 2 cats George and Rambo are total opposites. George has been naughty and is into everything while Rambo is nice, listens very well and loves to cuddle.
zoe y says
I have two cats, Cami and Ollie. Cami has been naughty this year as she likes to climb on everything and shes knocked several expensive things over and broken them, while on the other side Ollie has been good and just sleeps and cuddles.
Our cat, Ginger, has been a good kitty for the most part… But she’s yet to curtail her naughty habit of chewing up all the family’s earbuds. You can’t just leave them anywhere unattended lest you’ll find them chewed up and the cords severed. My 10 year old daughter has yet to forgive her for the demise of her treasured Pikachu pair.
Perhaps this toy n’ treats combo would be the just the thing to keep Ginger off the naughty list! 😉 Thank you for the chance to win! G_Patton (at) hotmail (dotcom)
My cat has been nice this year. My other cat died unexpectedly in April and Dixie has been a real comfort. She is such a good kitty. She is so friendly and loves to be petted. Her favorite thing is treats!! We taught her to do a trick for treats. She rolls onto her back. She does it ALL. THE.TIME. *LOL* She will also play a sort of “fetch” with my husband. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

Our feisty little guy, Jack, is naughty all year round. He will use his litter box to urinate but absolutely refuses to poo in there, always goes on the concrete basement floor. We’ve tried different litters, bigger boxes, boxes with lower lips, etc…he has no trouble getting in/out, no issues he’d need the vet for, and uses it for number ones..but twos go on the floor. Sigh. Lucky him, we still love him and he’s part of our family.
Danielle Jones says
We have two cats . The oldest is 12yrs old. My boyfriend adopted him from our local shelter when he was a kitten. The cat eventually took up with me and came to live at my house. He’s a great cat I just love him. The only problem is he can and will make your day miserable if you tell him no. Such as the time he peed in my purse. Not a drop was outside the purse, just everything including the purse was ruined all because i told him no he couldnt go outside. So recently my boyfriend was over and told the cat no. The cat walked right over to a pile of my boyfriends clothes and started to squat on them. It was so funny and needless to say he doesn’t get told no very often…lol
Amy Tebow says
I just adopted a sweet little kitten. He is so precious. I took him to the vet to get a check up and shots only to learn that he is a very sick little guy. We are giving him medicine and praying he will return to full health very soon! He would love to have a special toy!
Mary Beth Elderton says
Mr. Doof and Miss Kitty are mostly naughty. You’ve seen those Internet cats who intentionally knock things off of any surface? Yes…my kitties!
Teresa Archer says
My cat Dartangion, has been naughty for chewing on the dogs toes, and eating the dogs food.(I believe he thinks he is a dog)
Betty C says

laurie murley says
my cat has been very naughty lately he likes to sleep with me but when he comes to bed he scrathes my legs by climbing up the bed and anchoring on my legs to come the rest of the way.
Laurie Emerson says
Two of our 3 kitties have been very naughty this year. Princess has learned how much fun it can be to play with the toilet tissue paper on the roll and we have found it several times making a path from bathroom to other rooms. Gwyn has learned how to nudge open cabinet doors and you hear them banging through the night. Scotty has been a very good kitty as when I had a really bad cold he would come up and nuzzle my neck and curl up next to me.
Hesper Fry says
Our cat has been naughty this year! He loves to jump up on the kitchen counters and scratching our furniture.
Amanda Whitley says

We got our cat as a kitten back in May so we didn’t have her last Christmas. She is worse than the kids about opening presents. She keeps getting under the tree and trying to claw open the wrapped presents. 🙂
Liza Vladyka says
my cat Bella-boo has been naughty she kills animals
Carolyn Daley says
Nikko is usually our nice sweet boy while Mushu has a wild naughty side. Mushu loves to jump onto my dresser and knock things done. He recently broke an oil burner a few weeks back. Nikko is mostly good, but never leave a plate unattended or else you might be missing part of your dinner.
Daisy has been nice this year- We got a new cat and she loves him! No fighting at all when he was here the first weeks.
Megan C says
My kitty has been good for the most part of the year but there was this one thing. I was having a family get together and there were a lot of children. One of the children left a plate with chicken on it sitting on a chair. My kitty snuck over there and took a piece of the chicken. She has never done this before. I thought it was the cutest thing but would not want her to do it again.
jenny stratton says
Edgar is the cutest kitty ever but does tend annoy and chase our older cat for fun, he thinks its fun but Little Girl doesn’t.
ashley alderink says
We currently have 2 cats that we rescued. They have been very nice this year and a blast. They have been great adjusting to have to playful girls handling them and playing with them. They are at the fun playful stage and love to play and get treats

Nancy Loring says
I have 3 cats. Angel, we have had her for eleven years. She adopted us. The there’s Black Cat, he’s a sweetheart , he’s ten. Max is my baby and he is eight. My cats are naughty and nice. It depends on the minute. When I walk my dog all three of my cats walk with us. They have done this for years. I have had people stop and take pictures. I actually think that the cats are part dog because they all act like one.

Katherine H says
Our cat is a pretty good guy most of the time. He loves to cuddle and show his love. He can be a bit out of control though when he gets into the yarn.
Dawn Hecke says
My cat,Dax tends to be naughty at times. He likes playing hide and seek with the dogs and when they find him he bats them in the face. Naughty kitty! 😉
mr. piper is nice to me and naughty to the dog!
My kitty is always naughty – but in the nicest way possible 🙂
He bats his food bowl when I’m sleeping, he knows then I’m awake..,
My cat Desiree is both naughty and nice. Naughty because she just loves to jump up on my furniture and knock things down which makes me yell at her often. But her nice makes up for it because she’s one of the sweetest, most loving cats I’ve ever met. She loves to cuddle with me and gives kisses more then some dogs I’ve owned.
Tabitha @ Saving Toward A Better Life says
We took in a rescue cat quite unexpectedly just this past Saturday! She hasn’t had time to be naughty but she sure has warmed our hearts! I had said I didn’t want another cat (in June 2014 I lost my cat that I had for 10 years.) But this sweet kitty (a Lynx Point Ragdoll breed) is not one you see very often in need of rescuing. She is the exact breed as my sweet Xander. I felt like she was calling to us when I found out she needed a home. So, Lady came to be a part of our family! I would love to put this prize pack under the tree for her!
My cat reaches its paw into the dogs cage and its eat ally expensive formulated food, by scoping it out then eating it.

Sammy loves to sneak out of the house, one time she sneaked out and I didn’t know it until I heard some meowing when I finally found her she was staring at the dog next door scared.
Lisa V. says
For the most part, my kitties have been nice. But recently just noticed one or both has been scratching on the lining of the bottom mattress under the bed.
Amy Orvin says
My cats have all been nice this year. They get along very well together, they love grooming each other and they sleep together with their arms around each other. It’s very sweet!
Billie R says
I have four cats and my oldest Brutus has decided he no longer wants to eat in the back room with the rest of them. He has started a naughty habit of meowing incredibly loudly every day until I get up and put food in a bowl on my desk.

Erica B. says
She has been nice & super cuddly.
She’s been nice…most of the time. 😉
My boy Boots has been a combo of naughty and nice this year. While he is a champion snuggler, and makes me feel better when I’ve had a bad day, he definitely manages to get himself into quite a bit of trouble!

My kitties have been naughty, knocking over table lamps at 4 am and running around like they drank red bulls (they don’t drink red bull) from 5-6 am tsk, tsk, tsk.
Our kitty is always nice, even when he gets into the wrong things! He loves water, and tends to knock over our water glasses if we leave them out!
Kim L. says
My cat Charlie has been a little naughty this year. I caught him sneaking into our bedroom where he isn’t allowed. He totally knew he wasn’t allowed in there, as evidenced by him darting under the better when I saw him. Would still love to spoil him with some treats!
NAUGHTY!!!!!! She is a fluffy nutball. LOL
Kristin Goodson says
My cat has been pretty naughty this year. He is getting old so I think maybe his mind is going crazy. He won’t use his litter box anymore and our house is up for sale. Everytime someone calls to look at our house we have to go home to make sure there isn’t a mess on the floor lol
Our kitten has been nice. She is a very loving furbaby
My granddaughter’s two kittens have been naughty as they are just so young and climbing all over the counters, table, in the dishwasher and other places. They make the house a mess. They need their own toys to play with.
Kimberly O says
My cats are both – nice ALL DAY- sleeping sweetly then naughty at 2 AM- knocking everything they can over! Thanks!

My cat has been naughty! He climbed up into the kitchen sink and ate the food scraps out of it! And he tried climbing in the oven the other day when i was cooking a chicken in it!
Stephanie Liske says
She loves to play in boxes. No matter the toys we give her, if we receive a box in the mail, that is her new favorite toy.
jules m. says
our kitten sophie has been very bad. she broke 2 nice porcelain cat bowls, and a vase! she just knocks stuff off the table when she is bored!
Joy Q says
I would say he has been naughty. I got a phone call when I was making a sandwich and when I got back to the kitchen I had to start all over because there was no sandwich.
Critter has been very nice this year! We have been telling my 82 year old father-in-law that he needs to get a pet. He has resisted until he met little Critter…a stray in need of a home. He took him in and they have been loving each other all year long. That puts this sweet boy on the “Good Kitty” list!
Danielle Marie says
Our Charlie decided to nap on our router today…. Which we keep up high for a reason. Knocked down everything on the shelf. Gave me “puss in boots” eyes. Naughty!
Shelly Leatham says
Simba, our 11 yr old cat has been very nice this year! He keeps my feet warm! Our two kittens on the other hand have been crazy! Charlie chases Renee all through the house and if she ignores him, he will walk up to her and swat her and growl! Renee is sneaky. She waits for Charlie (or any of us) to walk by and she will jump out like a Ninja Cat!
The cat has been mostly nice and keeping to herself.
Nicole Sender says
My son’s cat has been so nice with my grandson! She is so tolerant and is very loving towards him.
Nicole Sender says
My cat has been naughty by chasing our dog
My cats been good by warming me feet at night
My cat digs in the plants. He throws the dirt all over the carpet floor and then rolls in it to make sure it gets spread around in the carpet real nice. He can be purrfectly naughty.
Holly Mitkowski says
My cat was naughty because she decided out of all places, to throw up off the top of the refrigerator!
My cat, Jupiter, is not very sweet, but she is very funny. Climbs the support bars on the chairs while hanging upside down, leaping to cat birds (she has never succeeded), acting as the family’s alarm clock. She’s also very clever, she’s figured out door knobs & cup handles.
My Belle is so gentle with my kids, she deserves a treat 🙂
My cats are always very sweet. And they’re very patient with the dogs!
Sheila K. says
My formerly feral 17-year-old amazing kitty has always been nice—he has never jumped up on cabinets, has never scratched the furniture, and has never chewed on our plants. He calls me Mama and says “Hello” in his sweet, friendly voice—I can’t imagine having a more loving cat than my Joey!
Donna L says
Our cat is a good boy, although he loves to shatter his toys around and watches as they are picked up.
Alina Hahn says
She keeps taking her collar off and I’m so afraid she’ll escape from the house when it is off.
Our cat is usually absent until it is time to eat. Half the time I have no idea where she is, and when she does show up I know it is because she wants something. Maybe she just doesn’t like me!!!
Missy Schutz says
We have 2 cats, brother and sister. The boy is mostly naughty. He brings birds, alive and dead into the house. Lizards and frogs too. He also like to shred paper products and boxes!
Alyce Poalillo says
Currently having 8 cats I have the full spectrum of naughty to nice. We moved and 7 of the 8 handled it very well and will get treats for Christmas. Mama Grey however will be getting coal!
Cassandra Burns says
I have 2 cats whom have been both naughty and nice this year! Monster likes to beat up on Slick and vise versa. Thus the naughty part. As for them being nice, they have loved being in their new home (we moved) and have been very well behaved with not scratching at the walls or trim! Good Luck to All! Happy Holidays!
Kathy H. says
Sir Kittsen has been nice this year, providing an adequate amount of cuddling while making it obvious when he is the king of the castle. He has pounced his way through the house keeping watch on all of his possessions.
