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.
