Cats vs. Zuru Robo Fish

| December 5, 2012 | 17 Comments

A few months ago, Michael Strange, Floppycats’ reader and Ragdoll cat lover/owner, posted the following video of his kitty Valentino playing with a Zuru Robo Fish online:

I loved it and wanted to have the same toy to test out with Charlie and Trigg.  However, Michael is in Australia and I’m in the USA.  So, Michael and I emailed back and forth about where to buy the Robo Fish.  But I couldn’t find it online anywhere – but those of you who know I am a crazy couponer, know that I am always looking at weekly ads.  And lo and behold, in the CVS circular – there were Robo Fish!

I purchased two of the Zuru Robo Fish at CVS – but I think they might be a special Christmas offering, so hurry!  I have since found them on Amazon – you can buy them individually for $14.90 – but CVS has them for $9.99.

Also, be careful with the tail on the Robo Fish – your kitty can easily pull it off and chew on it.  Charlie pulled it off easily!

    The fish look fantastic. I know Scooter would spend hours trying to get one. I will look for them around here. Your kitties are so precious, and it is always nice to see someone else who will let their cats play on the counter!

      Jobi – let me know if you get one for Scooter to play with – unfortunately because of the Robo fish tail situation, I do not think I would leave Charlie alone with it, unless I wanted to pay $1500 for surgery =(.

    Okay, so I saw this post yesterday and had to check them out. I got 2 of them at my local CVS here in Columbia, SC ($9.99 each!) and took them home. I filled up my bath tub with about 2 inches of water and put them in. My 4 girl kitties LOVED THEM!! Of course, 2 of mine had to fall in the water which made a big mess of things, but they dried off quickly and came back for more!

    I monitored them for about 10 minutes and then took them out and put them up. I will definitely put them out a few nights a week for the girls. I believe I may have to go get more 🙂

    Thanks for such a great find!!

      YAY! I love it! Yes, they are $9.99 each across the country at CVS. That’s hilarious that two of your girls fell in – they loved them so much that they got too distracted and fell in.

      Yes, I have to get more and expose Murphy and Caymus to them as well!

  4. Oh my, I read about this in your newsletter and just now saw it- this whole time I thought you were referring to this and knew my two would be scared to death- wondered how your cats took the tail off 🙂

    I can’t find at my CVS in California! What aisle are they in usually? Of course, I can never find anyone to ask at the store!

    • Jenny says:

      I am sorry to hear of your frustration! I am glad you still want to try and find them.

      Yes, every CVS is supposed to have them (afterall, it’s in their ad) but they don’t – darnit.

      I would try a few things – they should be in the seasonal items – where the other seasonal toys are (not the toys in the laundry detergent aisle). You can see what the package looks like in the first video I made above (the one in the middle of the other two). And they are in a box, with the packages in little slots. They are small, about the size of a Silly Putty container.

      You can call CVS Corporate – 1-800-SHOP-CVS I think or try 1-800-EXTRACARE or call your local stores and see if the manager can put a few for you on hold behind the counter.

      You can also order them online: http://amzn.to/UXahcl
