Your female pooch can attract dogs of the opposite gender with big, red Humanga lips. Moody Pet’s piece de resistance, however, caters to cats. If your kitty had a credit card, he’d buy himself a fling-ama-string. The battery-operated cat toy is like hiring a personal trainer for your furry friend; even the laziest feline will be leaping, pouncing, hopping and hurdling in no time.
