Kong Review

We were contacted by Abby from Kong last month to see if we'd like to review some items from their product line.  Of course we said yes, but then Mom Paula fell on the ice and her arm went back in the sling for two weeks and now she's in a brace for a possible fracture.  However, we don't want to disappoint the people from Kong, so we're helping Mom Paula review the products we received.

Just as soon as we were able to look into the box, we were very excited to see what Kong had sent us.

We received the Kong Naturals Cat Scratcher, the Kong Naturals Premium Cat Nip, and the Kong Soft Moist Duck Cat Treats.

You know how much we love the treats, especially the feather kind!  We usually eat chicken and turkey, but we immediately took to the duck!  These treats are all natural and have no wheat, soy, corn, or animal by-products.  There is added cranberries for urinary tract support and taurine for an essential dietary requirement for feline health. The ingredients are Duck, Chicken, Vegetable Glycerin, Cultured Dextrose, Taurine, Cranberries, Blueberries, Mixed Tocopherols (a Natural Preservative).

We first took a big sniff of the treats in the bag!

Mom Paula then let us try the treats!  Brulee found them easy to grab from Mom Paula's hand with her small mouth and she loved them (notice this was before the brace).

And of course, Truffle reached up to grab a treat!
Yum! Yum!

Mom Paula then sprinkled some of the catnip on the scratcher.  The Kong Naturals Premium Catnip is grown in North America and is harvested at the peak of its flavor, color, and fragrance and is then field-dried.  Kong's premium leaf and flower cut gives minimal stems and seeds and ,more of the essential oils that cause a reaction in cats.  

We sniffed the Kong scratcher at first, but basically ignored it.  Mom Paula even wrote to Abby at Kong asking if we should write about this or just write about the treats.  She told us to write about the treats and maybe we'd try the scratcher later.  A few days later Mom Paula heard us scratching in the hallway and thought it was Brulee scratching at the carpet again.  Would you believe it was us scratching on the scratcher?  Mom Paula keeps trying to catch us scratching on the scratcher, but she's been unsuccessful.   However, she did capture Brulee on the scratcher claiming it as her own piece of furniture.  We scratch on the scratcher every day now, but still won't let Mom Paula catch us doing it with the camera.



All in all, we give the Kong products "four paws up".  We love the treats and the all natural, environmentally safe scratcher is good for scratching and Mom Paula likes it because we don't scratch the carpet.  

We received these products from Kong free to review and were not compensated for our opinion.

  7. What about putting the scratcher vertically ? We absolutely didn't care about a flat scratcher Mum bought us once, but the thing became more interesting as soon as dad fixed it against a wall. Your treats look yummy ! Purrs
