|Truffle and Brulee presenting the SmartyKat® Giveaway Package|
We recently received a large box from Worldwise, Inc. - better products, better planet® which contained unique cat products from their SmartyKat® brand. SmartyKat® makes innovative products for a cat's physical, emotional, and instinctual needs. SmartyKat bases all of their cat items on the CompleteNeeds® System that includes play, scratch, wellness, retreat, litter, and hygiene. We are happy to share a few of their items with you.
SmartyKat® Feather Whirl™

We love interactive toys and the SmartyKat® Feather Whirl™ is a great way for us to get exercise. Mom Paula loved it because she could sit back and relax and laugh at us playing with the toy. The Feather Whirl is an innovative toy that works with a push of a button (required two AA batteries). The feather wand is attached on a small attachment at the top of the bright and colorful ball. When turned on, the wand whirls and swirls, mimicking prey and encourages cats to pounce. There is a constantly changing pattern to keep us guessing, so we won't get bored. The Feather Whirl is made of durable BHA-free plastic and is non-toxic and safe for cats and kids. The toy comes complete with a programmed round weighted base base, a whisper-quiet motor, and a Feather Whirl™ attachment.
SmartyKat® Scratch 'N Spin™

We love to stretch and scratch on both carpet and sisal. The SmartyKat Scratch 'N Spin™ provides a carpeted post for our scratching pleasure with the added bonus of spinning toys on top for us to play with. The wands on top of the scratching post spin freely when we tap them with our paws.The carpeted post and base measures 20" x 11" x 11". Your human will need to assemble the post, but it didn't take Mom Paula but a few minutes to put it together. The Scratch 'N Spin comes with two replaceable wands with dangling feathers and ribbons that will attract even the laziest of cats when they begin to twirl around the post.
SmartyKat® Hot Pursuit™ Electronic Concealed Motion Toy
We've been waiting for a toy like the SmartyKat® Hot Pursuit™ Electronic Concealed Motion Toy. Everyone knows how we kitties like to hunt and attack prey and this toy imitates the captivating motion of a mouse or hidden prey. The Hot Pursuit is a modern enhanced edition of the Undercover Mouse. Cats will follow the erratic motion of the mouses' tail and no matter how much we tried to ignore it, we kept coming back to it to attack the "tail". The toy requires three AA batteries (not included) and the speed can be adjusted to four modes to meet a cat's preferred activity level. There are two different wands provided to provide a variety for your kitty. As you can see from the video above, we enjoyed playing with this toy and couldn't walk away without coming back for more.
SmartyKat® Sisal Angle™ Incline Scratcher

Mom Paula didn't even get the tags off of the SmartyKat® Sisal Angle™ Incline Scratcher before we were scratching on it. Cats need plenty of scratchers available around the home so they can sharpen and shed the outer layer of their claws. This cat scratcher features a natural sisal surface that we love to scratch on and it's slanted for a perfect angle to scratch. The scratcher is a strong and stable wooden structure which will fit into any home decor. The Sisal Angle includes SmartyKat organic catnip (we didn't need it in order to use the scratcher). The scratcher measures 15.25" long by 7" high.
SmartyKat® Catnip Flyers™

The SmartyKat® Catnip Flyers™ are a lot of fun. Mom Paula says they remind her of the Chinese Handcuffs she used to play with as a child. The Catnip Flyers are made with lightweight mesh for batting and chasing fun. They are filled with potent catnip for added interest. We received a toy similar to this a few years ago from one of our blogging friends and Truffle loves to carry it around the house. Truffle did the same thing with this toy. In fact, she was out of sight with the toy as soon as Mom Paula opened it.
SmartyKat® Bubble Nip™

This is some fun stuff. The SmartyKat® Bubble Nip™ is made with fresh, green SmartyKat catnip. We've played with almost every type of catnip you can find until Mom Paula opened this bottle and began to blow bubbles. At first we didn't know what it was, but then we saw all of the bubbles floating around us with the wonderful aroma of catnip. The formula is safe and non-toxic. The Bubble Nip comes in a 0.6 fl.oz. (17.7 ml) bottle. It's small in size, but large in playful fun. Mom Paula suggests humans play with this on a tile floor or put some paper down because we tended to get excited and turned over the bottle (MOL). The photo below shows you how much Truffle enjoyed the Bubble Nip.

Even though we love to entertain ourselves, it's also important to have toys where we can interact with the humans. The Bubble Nip requires Mom Paula to blow bubble for us to chase and it's fun to interact with her. We've always loved wand toys and we've added the SmartyKat® Whistle Wand™ to our collection of favorite wand toys. Your human can be creative with the Whistle Wand by wiggling, bouncing, and dragging it in all types of motions to interact and bond with your cats. The Whistle Wand has a whistling sound every time the wand moves.
