REVIEW: Monster KONG Kickeroo and Catnip Spray
The folks at Monster Pet Supplies sent a box through to my house today. It contained a mission, addressed to my cats. Yes, once again, my cats are taking over the blog.
Morrighan, Gipsy-Moo and Maneki Neko were challenged (should they wish to accept it) to test two products from the Monster shop and give their honest opinions. Well, they’ve had a day of playing and frolicking, sniffing and kicking and now they’ve asked me to share their thoughts with you.
Well, Maneki Neko reports that he couldn’t have been happier. As soon as I unveiled the cheery green box with its cutesy Monster stickers on the side, he was in, trying to snuffle the box out of my hands so he could play with it. What he was smelling was the premium North American catnip of the brand new KONG Tiger Kickeroo! None of us have been able to figure out why it is significant that the catnip is North America, but it is repeatedly emphasised on the packaging, so we thought we’d perpetuate the myth.
As soon as the lid was off the box, Maneki pulled everything out, grabbed the Kickeroo and ran away, so I had to put everything back and hold him off so we could stage this film as if he was just getting into the box for the first time…
|Don’t kick it! Sit next to it!|
- Maneki Neko gives the Kickeroo 10 out of 10 Furry Baby Points. He chuffin loves it.
- Morrighan gives the Kickeroo 7 out of 10 Furry Baby Points. She likes it because it gives her an excuse to play with me, which she loves.
- Gipsy gives the Kickeroo a sad 3 out of 10 Furry Baby Points, owing to mistaking it for a friend and then being slightly disappointed that it didn’t do anything except smell nice.
- As an owner, I thought this was great value and excellent quality for the price. It costs the same as other cat toys which will only last two minutes and are nowhere near as nicely made. It’s just a shame that every cat doesn’t react the same way to catnip so Gipsy could enjoy it as much as Maneki!
Unfortunately that means we can only give the Catnip Spray a 2 out of 10 Furry Baby points. It just wasn’t the cats whiskers as far as Gipsy, Morrighan and Maneki were concerned. It seems a perfectly good quality product, they just weren’t into it!
The people at Monster have been so nice and friendly, I thought I’d tell you a little bit more about their website. They don’t just sell things for cats, they sell everything you could need for a whole range of pets large and small. They offer free delivery for orders over £59, but light orders only cost £1.99 delivery and heavy ones £4.99, so I think that’s pretty reasonable anyway. As well as toys and accessories, they also offer food and medication, so they’re a pretty much one top shop for your treasured animamamals. Looking at their cat food, for example, they have a very wide selection and their prices compare favourably with the supermarkets so that is very positive.
