10 Funny Hanukkah Toys For Chewish Cats And Dogs
Chewish has, more or less, become the special attribution of pets who live with Jewish persons. Or maybe it's just a great hook to sell more pet toys for Hanukkah. In any case, there are some real fun toys for cats and dogs who qualify - chewers, chasers, and swatters, who should not be left out of the Hanukkah festivities that begin early this year on Thanksgiving eve.
Here are 10 especially fun gifts for Chewish pets, sure to get some laughs from their owners....
1. Double Dreidel Chewish Dog Hat Toy
Though the Double Dreidel Hat may be a ridiculous-looking, it's guaranteed to be a fun dog toy, especially when your dog knocks it off after the photo session. Send your photos here, so we can get a real dog wearing it! The stuffed dog is just a prop.
2. Hanukkah Gelt Dog Squeaker Toy
Gelt is Yiddish for money and Hanukkah is a time of year when money, coins particularly, is given to children as gifts. The Hanukkah Gelt Dog Squeaker Toy is shaped like a purse which might hold gelt. The motto on the toy reads "In Dogs We Trust."
3. "Chewish" or "Kosher" Embroidered Squeaky Dog Bone Toys
Choose from 'Chewish' or 'Kosher' embroidery on the Hannukah dog bones with squeakers. Dogs will love to fetch and chew this squeaky toy, and owners will appreciate the humor, as well as the beautiful dog pattern on the toy.
4. Hanukkah Scratch Box For Chewish Cats
You can put some cat gelt (kibble or treats), string, or ribbon in this little Hannukah Scratch Box and your cat will have fun for hours. It's 6 inches in diameter and tightly woven, so it should give kitty hours of play.
5. Chewish Cat Lox Fish Toy on String
Lox, or smoked salmon, is a favorite Jewish food, particularly with bagels and cream cheese. The Lox Fish Cat Toy assures kitty a genuine Chewish Hanukah toy.
6. Plush Bagel & Cream Cheese Squeaker Dog Toy
Though bagels and cream cheese should not be part of Chewish dogs diets, they still crave it. So the Plush Bagel & Cream Cheese Squeaker Dog Toy allows them to release that frustration and have some fun too. Yes, there's an adorable Lox Squeaker Dog Toy too.
7. Gefilte Fish Squeaky Toy For Chewish Dogs
Just as 'lox' is not really a fish (it's salmon), gefilte fish is not really a fish, but a method of serving whitefish, carp, or pike, typically served on Jewish holidays. Therein lies the funny part, or irony, of this Gefilte Fish Sqeaky Dog Toy in traditional Hanukkah blue and white colors.
8. Chewish Cat Dreidel Toy
Cats may not recognize the symbolism of the dreidel unless they've had religious training, but this Dreidel Toy on a string with bells will be right up their alley with a cat paw print on one side and a bare fish bone on the other. Hours of fun are promised.
9. Hanukkah Tickle Your Fancy Catnip Dreidel
What fun the Catnip Dreidel will be for your Chewish cat. Bouncing this around will amuse her for sure, or attach a string to the Dreidel and keep her going for a longer time!
10. Schmutz Octopus Chewish Dog Squeaker Toy
Perhaps my personal favorite, though not strictly for Hanukkah (but it will work!), the Schmutz Octopus Dog Squeaker Toy is really funny. The octopus, you will notice, is black. Octopus ink? Maybe.... But schmutz is Yiddish for yucky stuff... the kind of stuff a dog might enjoying wearing. But you won't if you step in it.
Remember, Hanukkah starts the evening of November 27, 2012 and ends on the evening of December 5, 2013. Happy Hanukkah to all your Chewish pets.
That's the buzz for today!
