BRINDLETERM OF THE DAY: "BLOOFISH"

During his "juniorperson" (puppy) days, Archie's favourite toy was a store-bought cat toy manufactured by Hartz. It was from their "Just For Cats" line and it was called "Gone Fishin'" (Hartz SKU: 3270088538). In the package was a fishing pole made from three sections of blue plastic requiring assembly. Attached to the pole by elastic string was a small, crinkly, shiny plush fish with catnip inside. (NOTE: Archie LOVES catnip)
Most mornings Bloofish would be discovered hanging from a towel rack in the bathroom where Archie would jump and gently chomp at it until he finally pulled it from the rack and trotted away gleefully to chew on the pole section. To Archie's excitement, the next morning, Bloofish would reappear in the same spot, starting the cycle over again. This continued until Mirabelle moved in.
Once Mirabelle moved in, Bloofish had to be retired, as she was much more aggressive with this type of toy and would turn it into potentially dangerous debris in minutes.
