In assessing the KONG family of toys, one might fairly wonder whether they have felines and canines on the company’s payroll as product designers. Like many of the brand’s other greatest hits, the KONG Naturals Crinkle Fish with Feathers for felines has everything that even a more discerning cat could want out of a plaything — as well as “green” product manufacturing for the eco-conscious shopper.
The name of the Crinkle Fish with Feathers sums up the toy’s basic components — a crinkly, soft fish head, combined with a tail of plumed feathers. But the true beauty of the Crinkle Fish lies in what your cat can do with it. The toy is light enough to encourage cats to bat and toss the toy, keeping them engaged even longer and awakening their natural predatory instincts. But the product is also sturdy enough to allow felines to grab onto the fish and carry it around the house (like any proud cat would do with a prized catch after a serious hunt). It’s worth noting, though, that particularly active cats may be able to puncture a hole or two in the toy, but that shouldn’t detract from their enjoyment.
As a bonus for cat owners who want to shop with the environment in mind, the Crinkle Fish with Feathers is part of the line of KONG Naturals. All materials and dyes for the product are derived from renewable natural resources, proving that cats don’t need too much artificiality for an enjoyable playtime favorite.
At a retail price of under $6 at most outlets, the Crinkle Fish with Feathers is an all-around appealing, well-conceived cat toy that’s also naturally made.
Pros: Eco-conscious construction combined with engaging design.
Cons: Aggressive felines may be able to damage the toy.

Great fun, especially for kittens
posted 4 years ago
My 10 month old kitten Edgar had a blast with this toy. It is very light & easy for him to flip around, encouraging play. He really enjoyed chewing on the ring part - it made an appealing crackling sound - and had a great time pouncing & flipping. I liked the fact that the product was made with all-natural materials. The only down side is that Edgar is a fellow who plays very vigorously and he destroyed this toy in a matter of days. He had so much fun with it, though, that it was worth it.
Pros: Natural materials, vet approved
Cons: Easily destroyed if your cat plays vigorously

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
