Then it occurred to me, Easter is right around the corner. Luckily, I made a pact with a fellow coworker to give up packaged candy. No reason to trot down the candy isle for me! ;) I will eventually pick up something for the kids and something small for Mr. Hollow and myself. But holy smokes, I almost forgot about the fur babies! I decided to go to an Etsy store that is very popular with Gabby and Izzie: Kitty Kickerz Cat Toys. The shop is operated by a wonderful lady named Tara. She creates an assortment of fabric cat toy Kickerz filled with organic catnip. They were a huge hit with the little ladies at Christmas. :)
Santa brought each of them and their nephew Elliot a 12 inch kicker.
Here are the photos after they were wore out from playing. I must congratulate Santa on being savvy enough NOT to put them under the tree! LOL
The Kickerz are put up on a shelf in between plays. The ladies know where they are at and call out their request looking fondly up at them. These Kickerz have taken a beating and no rips yet!
Tara is currently running a 10% sale off of purchases of $25.00. I took full advantage of the discount and was surprised to find she had some play mats, too. Of course, I had to get a few of them to try out. If your cats are crazy for catnip like mine, these Kickers are a great deal at $7.95 a piece. I am not going to lie. I was skeptical about how well they would hold together. My ladies still have their back claws and can bunny kick up a storm, but they seriously have withstood several play sessions. If you are looking for a last minute gift for your darling little feline, check out Tara's store KittyKickerzCatToys on Etsy. Tara's creations definitely get a shining review from myself and the ladies, too... Well, once they get done with their afternoon nap anyways! ;)
