---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

How To Cuddle Your Cat

Cats are soft and plush but are also highly sensitive

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Cats can be friendly and even extremely affectionate toward humans if they are socialized early with positive experiences.   Socialization consists of being picked up, snuggled and gently petted by people from the earliest date the mother cat will allow.   Most experts think that the critical imprinting period for kittens is prior to 7 weeks and it may be even earlier. 

If your cat is standoffish or doesn't like being picked up, take advantage of the chill (literally) in the air.  During cool evenings or during the winter, keep the heat turned down and pick up Fluffy every chance you get.  Just cuddle her for a few seconds and then set her down again before she can object. 

Some cats are so sensitive to touch that more than a few seconds of petting or holding can make them turn around and claw you to get away.  When you're unsure of your reception, always err on the side of caution and save yourself from scratches.  There's no need to hurry!

Cats naturally seek warmth and she'll eventually get the idea that people are great heaters.  In particular, the bare skin of your neck, arms and hands is especially warm and you may find your cat trying to snuggle up underneath your chin.  If you don't want to inhale a ton of cat hair, give him a bare arm to lean up against.  It's the first step in creating your own loving lap-sitter.
