Ok it's time for a cat christmas countdown competition. Our cats are a bit strange when it comes to toys, they tend to prefer the 'live' toy variety and at this time of year we are always being left little presents. Don't you just love pets!!
The only other toy that they seem to return to time and time again are the Plague Rat cat toys. These little guys are hand made in Wales and are stuffed full of the strongest catnip and valerian.
Every now and then we need some products testing out and we always find lots of willing volunteers on twitter so when we needed someone to to a review of the Plague Rat Cat toy @ruthsimsmoore volunteered her puss cats to be our latest testers. A Plague Rat is no ordinary cat toy. These little bundles of fun are hand made by Sally Pointer in Wales, and are filled with a potent mixture of catnip and valerian root. They are made from linen with woollen tails, leather ears and small beady rat eyes. These little guys are so potent that we advise you to make sure that you are around when the postman delivers them, we have had more than a few people tell us that parcels have been opened by paw, by kitty cats who can't wait to get their paws on them. They are about 15cm long with a plaited 25cm tail, but as they are hand made sizes may vary. Our range has a red and black tail, with small orange/red bead eyes and black leather ears. So what did the cats think about them? This is what @ruthsimsmoore told us... "My 2 year old female cat loved the plague rat as you can see in the video! straight away she was really interested, and she is normally quite held back when it comes to new things or people that she comes across! She did enjoy a good play and then later returned to it, and a few days later when I gave it to her again she was again loving the rat :) My next door neighbour also tried it with her cat and he LOVED it also as you can see... They are a tad smelly but you soon forget that when you see the antics of your pussycat and the rat. I think the colours of the plague rat are brill! " We also sent a few little sample bags of Fish4dogs Complete Cat Food which went down a treat with Ruth's two cats. "This went down VERY well with my two cats! and I would love to buy some for them in the future. Maybe in a bigger pack if they are avalible? My cats seemed very satisfied, however, even after sharing a pack between them! Nice little treat for them I think." So a big thanks to Ruth for taking the time to review these products for us, you can find our full range of amazing finds for the furry kind on line, Oh and make sure you follow us on twitter to be in with a chance of winning one of our weekly competitions.
