Hi, Andz, well, we have never tried N-Bone, but Foamy Fries can have
a string tied around them and hung from a "fishing pole", though it's
not as easy to do as with Cheweasels. After they have grabbed on to
them a bit you can untie them and give them. You can also play
keep-away with them, waggle them near the ferret, or put them into a
tunnel to be cleaned out.

We're noticing that they seem to be as good as the Cheweasels for
removing plaque and tartar.
