Kira the tiger playing with a Christmas toy meant for dogs

Give a big cat a toy and watching her play with it is like giving yourself a present.

Kira, the youngest Amur tiger at the Calgary Zoo, was given a ball as a Christmas present.

Not just any ball, but it’s the latest gadget for dogs. It’s called a Tuggo and these things have been profiled on U.S. morning talk shows.

It’s a hollow plastic ball with a rope that you fill with water.

By using the weight of the water, the ball provides tension for dogs, which gives it a sloshing sound when it’s rolled around on a floor—or the ground in Kra’s enclosure.

If you watch Kira play with her Tuggo, it’s pretty clear she’s having a rollicking good time.
