    Lol!...then I'm not alone on picturing that :D!
  2. I was watching animal planet last night and they were using flirt poles for the Tigers on tiger island! Now these cats had to be terribly mean because what kind of a Tiger would let there handler come into a nest while shes having cubs and let the handler touch them!?

    This is also called a "CAT MILL" , & while there is a cage on one end , this type of mill is primarily an outdoor mill. It is large , and although objects are generally inserted ( ball , milk jug , something to bounce ) animals were used.

    Typically , it is located on a large yard , or farm. It utilizes the dog's prey drive , to harness the dog's energy into a work out.

    Chances are , the mills & poles originated with the concept of bait animals & generally today , have evolved into the uses of inanimate objects. Rope , balls , jugs ...etc. Animal hydes are often used also.

    ( Boogieman sells hides & Break sticks ( to get them off of the hides ) PM him for details. )

    The concepct was based on harnessing natural drives ( agression , hunting , killing etc... ) into a workout regimen. It quickly evolved into harnessing a different drive with the same type of results : PLAY.
    ( Rope, ball , rubber , fabric , etc. )

    This is just my opinion , but I don't think promoting / encouraging "BLOODLUST" , was the foundations of this type of equipment. To much work involved ( IMO ) and animals cost $$$. Even to a farmer. Then there is cleanup & disposal.

    I would think if a "CAT MILL" was designed to be used with a cat , ( Probably was ) the same cat could be used over & over again , for years.

    People who Dnt know just want to guess is wut it seems like. Flirt poles have been used for many years with many types of animals. Its just most aren't called flirt poles.And anything u use with your pitbull is automaticly said by those that dont know that your training it for things that your not.
