Tie (2) Balls together with one continuous length of 1” diameter rope. Throw some jingle bells into each ball and you’ve got a “Two-Timer”! It will exercise your aquatic animals because it takes effort to drag it through the water. It will delight all animals because it produces a very audible “jingle” sound as it is moved. The Balls make a “knocking” sound when they hit each other. It is convenient to play with. It easily rolls with the swat of a paw. The protruding rope provides a handle to move it.

Healthy exercise. Audible enrichment. Fun enrichment. Feeder enrichment.

You can select the colors from a palette of (33) colors. We can build a custom Two-Timer with more Balls. We can change the Ball sizes. We can change the rope diameter and length. Heck, we can do almost anything!

How about a Two-Timer with a 17” small Ball in the center surrounded by a 25” larger Jingle Ball on both sides. Should we change the name to “Three-Timer”? Probably.

This will make it easier for a large cat to pick it up and carry the jingle toy around. The combinations are many and, like the famous hamburger slogan, you really can “have it your way."
