Cat Toys: A Munchiecat Valentine's Day Give-Away! Because We LOVE You!


 Hi all and Happy Valentine's Day!! Today Cody and I are beyond excited to be having a:


Boy oh boy is this gonna be fun!!!!! Back in late 2017 I had seen the Munchiecat line of toys on the web and I instantly fell in love. Visiting the Munchiecat website I learned that their toys are non-toxic. They are made using  pet-safe materials so you can feel good about offering them to your kitties! Munchiecat makes their toys in small batches to ensure freshness and quality.

I received two different sets, they are the:
    SUSHI DELUXE | 8Pc Catnip Sushi Set
and the
    WINE DELUXE | 9Pc Catnip Wine & Cheese Set

The first set I would like to show you is the Sushi Deluxe, 8 piece Catnip Sushi Set:


When I opened the bamboo-print Bento-style gift box (the packaging alone had me shrieking with delight), I was smitten with how incredibly ADORABLE and WELL-MADE these toys are. They are also unique and extremely clever!!!  Cody is almost 11 years old,  and not every toy piques his interest. THESE (as well as the wine and cheese set) DID! He was immediately attracted to them and they held his interest.

 "Part toy, part decor, this sushi set will stimulate your kitty's
 natural instincts to explore and play."


     Their  nigiri toys are 1.5" x 1.5" x 3" each, and maki toys are 1.5" x 1.5". Your cats will love to pounce on their sushi "prey" and their toys are lightweight and soft so your cats can easily carry them and bat them  around!


Their  sushi toys are made with minky fabric and are filled with polyester fiber, organic catnip, crinkle paper and bells.

The next set we received (Pssst:It's also the one we will be giving away!!) is the:

WINE DELUXE | 9Pc Catnip Wine & Cheese Set


"This 9 piece assortment includes a wide range of sizes, shapes, and textures that can be enjoyed by cats of all ages! The Olive and Fig toys are light and small enough for even the tiniest of kittens to enjoy. Older cats will find the Cheese toys plush and soft so they can easily be carried around like prey. The 8” Wine bottle make excellent catnip kicker toys for those mid-day wrestling matches."

When I presented these to Cody the first thing he went to was the wine!! (of course I have no video because as soon as I approached he took off, but this set is a HUGE hit!) My husband and I commented tonight when he was swatting olives and figs across the kitchen, that we hadn't seen him this energized and active in quite some time! He was having the time of his life!! 



    You know what they say: "Variety is the spice of life",  and this 9 piece assortment includes catnip, crinkle paper, and rattle toys in a wide range of sizes from 2” Olives and Figs toys to 8” Wine Bottles.  The wine bottles are hilarious! They are the perfect size for bunny kicking!! Each toy is made with soft minky fabric and infused with potent catnip to stimulate your cat's natural playfulness while satisfying their sophisticated side! Why not treat your kitty to a set for Valentine's Day? Watching Cody play like a kitten chasing olives and grapes down the hallway has warmed my heart and made me happier than I could ever imagine.   Each toy in this set has a different purpose and engages healthy behaviors like chasing, kicking, jumping, and cuddling. The Munchiecat toys are designed for both solo and interactive play time for kitties with their humans, and offers enough variety that if your cat tires of one, they have another to play with.


o     THE MUNCHIECAT DREAM:

    "Our dream is to make high quality, pet-safe toys that you can feel good about offering to your furry friends. We started with a Sushi set because even the grumpiest and aloofest (yeah, that’s a word) of cats deserve better than cheap plastic balls and rubber mice."


   "As a wife/husband business we hope to continue making fun and beautiful toys for the creatures that continue to fill all our lives with smiles."


I would say the Munchiecat Dream
has been fulfilled!!
I AM IN LOVE WITH THE MUNCHIECAT TOYS!!


   They are DESIGNED FOR CATS AND HUMANS ! Owners are encouraged to always supervise their cat’s playtime so Munchiecat makes toys that can be enjoyed by both cats and their humans! The simple designs are safe and reduce the chances of tears. What I particularly LOVE is contrary to popular cat toys like cat wands, Munchiecat stays away from decorative strings, feathers, or small parts that can break off and get swallowed or cause choking hazards. How many of those types of toys do you as cat lovers see in the store? Far too many. I can't tell you how many toys (made by FAMOUS PEOPLE and FAMOUS BRANDS) contain these hazards.(I once wrote an individual asking them to remove the bells from their toys. I am certain it fell on deaf ears. I was so upset with those toys I am talking about that I chose not to review their products.) You do NOT have those worries with the Munchiecat toys!

 I I could NOT be happier with both of these sets and Cody ADORES THEM! Thank goodness the Kickstarter backers helped bring these incredible cat toys to fruition! PERSONAL NOTE: communicating with Natalie, (part of the husband and wife Munchiecat team), via email has been a complete joy. My eldest stepdaughter had become quite ill in December (she is still ill and is awaiting surgery, hopefully some time in March), which made me have to delay my review. Natalie could not have been more compassionate, thoughtful, kind and understanding. She told me I didn't even have to worry about posting her products on my blog, she just wanted me to take care of myself  and not worry.  Natalie is a special person with an incredible heart and I wish she and her husband enormous success with these superb toys. The Munchiecat line is TRULY SPECIAL, as are the people who created this company.


 WE HAVE A GIVE-AWAY!!
Natalie is offering one lucky reader who is 18 and over
 and who resides in the U.S. a WINE DELUXE | 9Pc Catnip Wine & Cheese Set of their own! (A $30 value!!)  Because I think there is going to be a number of you who are interested in winning, I am NOT going to post a rafflecopter. Instead, IF YOU WISH TO ENTER, SIMPLY LEAVE A COMMENT THAT CLEARLY STATES THAT YOU WISH TO ENTER!!! EASY PEASY!! The give-away is open NOW and will end at 5pm on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST, the lucky winner will be chosen by random.org and will be announced on or around Friday, February 23rd. GOOD LUCK TO ALL AND HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
