Kong Kickeroo Catnip Toy
(5 out of 5)
Kong's Kickeroo provides a lot of catnip bang for the buck.

I’ve always been impressed by the durability and ingenuity of all KONG toys, whether designed for dogs or cats, and this toy is no exception. The Kickeroo, which somewhat resembles a non-threatening tiger’s torso and a fluffy tail (it also comes in cow and other animal patterns), is stuffed with a “potent” blend of catnip, which oozes out of the crinkly toy as your cat or kitten chews, paws and tosses it around. What’s great about this toy is its size, about 16 inches in total, which means that it’s big enough for a cat to wrap his or her body around the toy completely and roll around with it, as this cat loves to do.
The Kickeroo also delivers on its catnip promise – the cat who was lucky enough to get to this toy first quickly got into a rhythm of alternately smothering it, batting it around, and sinking her teeth into its center. Within 20 minutes, or so, the catnip seemed to take its effect, as she then entered her kitty-daze typical of when she enjoys a good portion of catnip. Needless to say, after then, she was hooked. The one problem is that the catnip isn’t refillable; so while after several months this toy withstood a durability test and didn’t tear or shed, the ‘nip wore off.
The Kickeroo can also be an interactive toy that can lend to your cat getting his or her fair share of exercise, as well. Its furry tail provides a good way for an owner or human playmate to grab on to it and engage the cat, especially if an introduction with the toy had been made before. All in all, for the $7.99 internet price, reduced to $5.97 on Petco.com, this is a cute, fun toy that should keep your cat happy and engaged for many play sessions.
Pros: The toy’s shape lends to many kinds of play; built-in catnip enjoying session.
Cons: The catnip can’t be refilled.
