Does my Perfect Petzzz have an On/Off switch?

Since we strive to make Perfect Petzzz as lifelike as possible, they do not have an on/off switch. If you wish to turn your pet off, simply remove the batteries. Your pet will live up to 4 months with 2 "D" alkaline batteries.

In order to make pet as life-like as possible, you say, Petzzz therefore don't have On/Off switches?  Oh, puleeeze!  A friend of my 93 year-old mother gave her the black & white kitten Petzzz because its markings looked just like her real cat, Boo's--and I must tell you that she just loves it!  What she does NOT love, however, is that there is no way to turn it off except to get out a screwdriver & unscrew the back plate & remove the one "D" battery--not 2 as your advertisement text here keeps talking about.  Just one--and the Petzz gobbles up its juice within 24 hours running time--a pain in the patooty indeed to have to get out a screw driver & change it out all the time--especially when you are legally blind--not to mention the EXPENSE!!!   

I myself own several similar products like this and they all have a spot on a paw or between their shoulder blades or SOMEWHERE that can be pushed or squeezed to turn them Off & On--not to mention putting the switch on the BOTTOM of the animal where it can not be seen!  And in any case, in NONE of these similar products can the "switch" be seen so in no way does it detract from its realism.   I would strongly urge you to make such a modification to your otherwise adorable Perfect Petzzz...please!

                        Thank you so much for listening,

I agree with S. Whipple--  "In order to make pet as life-like as possible, you say, Petzzz therefore don't have On/Off switches?  OH, PULEEEZE!!!  

REALLY?  How insulting to parents.  There are possibly three reasons you didn't include an on/off switch...  simple design flaw , you are in cahoots with battery manufacturers or most llikely it is a cost cutting measure!!  Like a previous poster said...  how much would it add to the cost, a nickle?  And yes, it can easily be disquised in a on/off switch in the paw or such.  Shame on you.  How many disappointed kids are there whose parents won't continually buy new batteries for a toy that can't be shut off.

I agree.  I always have to move this pet to the other side of the room if it's anywhere near me and my daughter isn't using it because the slight click it makes while breathing is annoying.  This should definitely be corrected!
