Purrfect Play Review & Giveaway

So far in our product review journey, our pets have been sorely neglected. They hadn't been able to test out any products. That has now been taken care of by Pam at Purrfect Play. She sent these wonderful toys for our furry kids to test out.

I thought it'd be fun to let our pets open up their toys and see what they thought! If they could've spoken I'm sure they would've sung in unison, "Oh, happy day..."

Rugby stuck his head in the bag and pulled out his rope toy! He was so excited. My Doodle and Rugby immediately started a game of tug-o-war with the Large Cotton Tug Toy. This is a perfect winter toy for Rugby since it's so cold outside. This Tug Toy is super strong and I have no fears that it will come apart at all. It's amazing! My Doodle is giving it dual use as a jump rope, so everyone wins!

I'm not so hot on throwing things in the house because all of the balls we have make marks on the wall. In comes the Jumbo Wool Ball. That thing can be slobbered on (and has been), tossed around the house without leaving a mark on any of my walls, and when it gets fuzzy or chewed on, I can toss it into the dryer and it's good as new! We have a very happy Rugby!

On to our kitties, who were in catnip heaven. Honestly, is there anything funnier than a cat that's trippin' on catnip? We have 2 old girls, Sammy and Pearl, who are both going to be 12 this year, and Simba a stray we took in about 5 yrs ago and we guesstimate his age to be around 8 or 9. They could use exercise and they have been getting it.

Can you see the tear sliding down Simba's nose? He's so happy! Just kidding. He has eye issues. :)

Pam sent each cat their own Baby Catnip Carrots. That was given to each cat first. Oh, they were so funny, rolling themselves all over these carrots. Simba started rubbing himself all over the chair sticking his head under the arm cushion. Oh, he was out of his mind. My boys and I were just dying. It was a great learning lesson for my boys. I said, "Boys, this is what happens when you're on drugs." hahahaha Their heads snapped around to look at Simba again. He certainly was acting dopey! The ONLY downside to these carrots? Rugby. He thought they must be his toys too and he started eating the ropes at the end!! That toddler.

The next day they were given the Chubby Snake. Pearl, the big tubbo, hasn't give that any exercise. I don't think her stubby legs could wrap around it. Now Sammy on the other hand has gone to town attacking it. She throws herself at it, grabs it with her front paws and uses her back paws to "scratch" the snot out of it. Oh, such cheap entertainment. Later on Simba attacked it and then fell asleep on his prey!
We also have Cotton & Wool Dust "bunnies" that the cats are just batting all over the place and chasing after. Seriously, our pets are in heaven!

The most awesome part of all these products? They're natural!! Ha, even our cats and dog are getting into the healthy way of living! Here's what Purrfect Play says on their site regarding this,

My cats would LOVE the Organic Cotton and Catnip Snake. They go nuts over catnip, and they love to kick at toys with their feet.

Also, I learned that their products are homemade and made of organic fibers. Also, that they have cute Valentine's Day gift wrap made out of bandannas and scarfs.

Thank you for the giveaway!

This is awesome! I love how they use dye free and organic materials.

My cats would go crazy over the chubby roll, and my dog would like the blanket - he doesn't play with toys anymore, lol.

Pam had a cat named Licorice that was her best friend. He has now passed on. But he was an inspiration for her business.

I love that she makes pet blankets out of repurposed wool sweaters. Cats love wool!

So this would be an item of interest to me
