Tower of Tracks #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s so excited. I’s luvs Christmas. But we’ll tell ya’ more ‘bout dat Sunday. Today, I’s gonna get to write our very last Chewy review. Yep, da last one…of 2016 dat is. MOL  Did I’s get ya’? We didn’t receive our item till da day befur Christmas, so mommy decided to just save it and put it under da tree fur us. We ended up gettin’ so many pawsum gifts dat mommy waited yet another day befur givin’ it to us. Knowing how much we luv our track and ball toys, mommy got us da Pet Stages Tower of Tracks to review.

PetStages Tower of Tracks

So, let me tell ya’ a little ‘bout da Tower of Tracks. Maybe da most obvious is dat it’s bright orange and made of shiny plastic. Da Tower of Tracks is 10” wide and 5” tall and has 3 levels with a ball on each level. Each ball is lightweight, made of a thin plastic and sammiched ‘tween another row/level. Each level gets smaller in diameter as you go up. There’s a plastic “bar” on da top dat closes off da hole. It doesn’t move or have any function fur da toy itself, other than to keep kittys head from gettin’ stuck. And trust me, I’s tried fittin’ mines head in there, and it just doesn’t fit. So I’s guess da bar’s doin’ it’s job. Chewy lists da Key Benefits as these:  

Key Benefits

  • Durable toy consisting of three levels of exciting play, each level includes its own circular track and ball

  • Non-skid pads keep track from sliding around as cats bat and play

  • Spinning and rotating action of the balls entices cats to play

  • Great fun for a single cat or multiple cats

  • Measures 10″ diameter x 5″ high

Dezi and Raena check out the Tower of Tracks


I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s luvs me a good track toy. I’s like to get all 3 balls zoomin’ ‘round and ‘round. I’s haven’t yet figgered out how to get those balls off their tracks, but give me some time, I’s’ll find a way. MOL  All things considered, I’s give da PetStages Tower of Tracks 4 paws up. Dezi, do you wanna tell everypawdy what you think?

 Dezi checks out the Tower of Tracks

          Sure Raena, fanks. Me luvs track toys too, and this one is purretty cool. There’s no place fur catnip, but it’s small enuff fur me to lay down and reach all da sides to whirl da balls ‘round. Me thinks it makes a great toy fur a kitten or small kitty, but ifin me pushes da balls too hard, it falls over. Raena, still bein’ a kitten, really likes it; and it can keep her occupied fur a whole 10 minutes. Fur dat reason alone me gives it 2 paws up. Da PetStages Tower of Tracks is on sale right now fur $9.79. Mommy, what do you think bout da Tower of Tracks?

 Dezi and Raena play with the Tower of Tracks

     Thank you girls. Well, as Raena said, the Tower of Tracks is made of a thin plastic. And as Dezi said, it’s pretty small. Having recently fallen and broken one of the girls track toys, I can say that this track toy would have shattered and made a huge mess. But, it does keep Raena occupied for short spurts. Anything that can do that, deserves a thumb up. lol  Even at less than $10.00, I think it’s still a little overpriced. But if you have kittens, you’ll pay almost anything for a few minutes of peace. lol So again, 1 thumb up from me.

Raena’s First Christmas: Blessings Abound

Raena, calm down. We need to take a few minutes and write our posty. We’re almost a whole 2 days late. We are so blest and yesfurday was a huge reminder of just how much.

 Dezi and Raena with the yeowww cigars

          Oh sissy, I’s luvs Christmas. When will we have it again?

 Raena plays in the gift bag paper

Me too Raena. But me does think you were just a little overly excited. Christmas only comes ‘round once a year and me thinks you need a year to calm down Raena. But you know what? Our furiends are here everyday.

          And all those extra cuddles we got from mommy? Can we have those everyday too?

 Dezi plays with Christmas gifts

Yep Raena, all ya’ gotta do is be available. You know mommy looks fur any chance to scoop us up and hold us tight.

          Mines favorite pawrt of yesfurday was hearin’ mommy laff and seein’ her smile.

Me too Raena, me too. She cried a lot of happy tears, but she also giggled at us. She said seein’ us so happy and havin’ so much fun, makes her happy. We wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to all da Angels dat sent us purresents.

 Dezi checks out the new electric blanket

Mommy was so overwhelmed with joy she furgot to send emails and ask ifin we could use names fur our fank yous (a few peeps had notified us early they didn’t want their names listed with their gifts). So, we’ve decided to show you everythin’ we got without listin’ ‘zactly who it’s from, and then usin’ furst names fur our fank yous. We did get a gift card via email yesfurday dat specified no name be mentioned. You know who you are, and we fank you very much. But dat reminded mommy ’bout da name listin’, so we hope you enjoy seein’ our goodies. We know we fur sure purreciate everything. Mommy even likes da cutesy gift wrap bags from amazon; almost as much as we liked da boxes. MOL

          Is dat a haul or what? We, and dat includes mommy, cuz she got purresents too, wanna say Fanky Fank you to awnties Anonymous, our Cat Scout Angels, awnty Belinda, awnty Vonda, uncle Pete, Timmy Tomcat and furmily, uncle Bill, awnty Jean, Shoko and Kali, awnty Pat, Felix and Maggie, awnty Lisa, Cat and Nugget, uncle Jim, awnty Holly, Tiger, Dora, Trouble and Spooky.

What a day we had. And mommy warmed up dat smoked turkey we got, made some cheater mac and cheese, cheater taters with bacon (from da last grocery box mommy got), dinner rolls and made a cake. We didn’t get any cake, but da turkey tom lurkey and bacon taters were delishus. And did ya’ll see dat aero garden mommy got? She’s gonna be eatin’ salads in no time. You shoulda seen da tears of joy when she opened dat. Fur those of ya’ dat’s been followin’ us from way back when, you’ll know dat mommys’ days of outside gardenin’ is over. But, she never got any of da lettuce she planted back then cuz da rabbits always helped themselves to it furst. Mommy’s gonna be sharin’ those gift cards with us, and who knows, she might even plant us a little somethin’ somethin’ in dat new garden.

Hey, Raena!!! Dat’s mes Yeowww cigar, go play with your own.

 Raena plays with a new yeowww cigar

          Oh sissy, they’re both da same.

No, yours is already full of teeth marks.

          (Raena snickers)

Dat’s okay, we got purrlenty of pawsum toys. Me will play with somethin’ else. Anyways, as you’ve all noticed, we did take yesfurday off to spend time together as a family. We rarely miss and don’t like to miss Blest Sundays, but mommy was in so much awe she couldn’t help us write anythin’. We got behind last week cuz mommy had so many fotos to edit, and she took over a hunnerd new ones yesfurday. So we’ll be takin’ a day or so to try and get all those fotos loaded up on da catputer. Mommy tried to figger out how to use da wifi on da camera to just upload automatically, but alas, she doesn’t understand da directions we guess, cuz they ain’t loadin’. MOL Dat’s okay, at least she knows how to put da card in da catputer and transfur them dat way. We’ll be ‘round to visit as soon as we can, but we purrobably won’t post again till Furiday. But trust me, it’ll be worth da wait. Mommy got some “great” fotos durin’ all da excitement, some dat even she didn’t realize at da time.

Dezi’s T’was The Night Before Christmas

Mommy, Mommy!!! It’s almost Christmas!!! Tell us da night befur story. Purrlease???

 Dezi lays on arm of chair

     The night before Christmas story? Well, okay sweety. Girls come sit down. (Dezi jumps to the arm of the chair and cuddles next to mommy. Raena jumps into mommys lap and lays down).

 Raena lap selfie

     T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Hmmpht They don’t have Raena in their house. Dat’s not da right story, mommy.

     It’s not? Well darlin’, why don’t you tell us the night before Christmas story?

 Dezi and Raena look into a box full of goodies

(Dezi clears her throat and tells the tail tale.)

T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the house

Raena was stirring and running about

Our stockings were hung on the hutch way up high

So we couldn’t reach them in the middle of the night.


Dezi checks out the new electric blanket

Our new ‘lectric blanky was calling our names,

Come snuggle, Dezi, Raena, mommy needs you both the same.

We jumped on the bed, for our friends we then prayed,

Including strays and ferals, homes for them, we bade.



When all of a sudden Raena jumped with kittenish joy,

Zoomies through the house, Was she looking for a toy?

Up the tree, down the tree, she chortled some more

Back to bed, mommy hollered, which she promptly ignored.


Raena carries a Christmas toy from Cat and Lisa

Me couldn’t take it, me had to go see

Just what had she found that was causing such glee?

Down the steps and through the house me zoomed

Me ran in and out of every room.



Where is Raena? Where did she go?

Me chortled and chirped, but she mewed not a word.

Mommy called to me in that sweet loving sleepy voice,

Dezi, come back to bed, and stop making so much noise.



What? It wasn’t me that was clamoring about,

That was Raena…Before, not now.

Now she’s snuggled by mommy asleep,

Back to bed me goes, our nightly secrets to keep.



Morning will come soon enough my love,

Mommy said quietly, as she pulled me close for a hug.

Goodnight dear friends, sweet dreams to you all;

Back under the blanky me now must crawl.



So? What’d ya’ think mommy?



     Well sweety, I think it’s purrfect. I think you’re purrfect. And Raena, I think you’re purrfect too. Why don’t you girls wrap this up. We have lots to do before tomorrow.

 Raena sits in a box of Christmas gifts

          I’s wanna wish everypawdy a Merry Christmas.


Raena, we all wish our furiends a Merry and Blest Christmas. And we thank all our Angels who have sent us gifts. We’ll be openin’ them tomorrow, but we’ve fur sure been checkin’ out all da boxes. And we thank all of you fur da pawsum Christmas cards. We’ve really enjoyed getting and lookin’ at ‘em all. Gotta go, mommy has fotos to edit, and visits galore.
