My Grey is an expert at toy removal. I asked and found out that this can help decrease or stop that. I gave it a try. I braided some leather around it. I have applied different types of toys. Some I have as stationary, some for her easy removal and more. My Grey likes to preen the regular hangers of preening toys. I skewer them through the center. This keeps them hanging and lasts longer. I plan to get more of these. My plan is to keep toys made in advance for quick change out. I tried this with food. My Grey treats toys gently, but she goes into terminator mode with food.
