Jackson Galaxy Cat Toy Review Giveaway Catnip Petmate Play Fun Pets Feathers Green Cute

Cinco loves the Jackson Galaxy Air Prey & Laser Teaser Cat Toy!

Cats are highly misunderstood creatures. People see a cat’s scratching behavior and label cats”destructive” (sometimes believing that declawing is the only way to save their home). They see a cat’s sleep pattern and label cats “lazy.” They see a cat’s inclination to chase things or knock things off of counters and label cats “vengeful.” None of these things are true about cats at all! Cats are unique creatures with unique needs that are often not met inside human homes.

The TRUTH is that cats are unique creatures with unique needs that are often not met inside human homes.  That is why Jackson Galaxy, the beloved cat behaviorist from Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell” show, has teamed up with Petmate to create some cat toys that will help to erase the misconceptions you might have about cats.

The Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate has a variety of different cat toys that will help to meet your cat’s unique behavioral needs!  The more these needs are met (and understood) the better your relationship with your cat will be. Each toy address one or more facets of a cat’s natural hunting instincts:

  • to hunt
  • to catch
  • to kill
  • to eat
  • to groom
  • to sleep

These cat toys are now available for purchase at Petsmart stores and on PetSmart.com. You can find out more about these toys by following Petmate on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

Jackson Galaxy™ The Vault Marinater Cat Toy & Jackson Galaxy™ Organic Catnip

Got catnip cat toys? We sure do. Cinco and Manna can’t get enough of cat toys that are filled (or covered) in their intoxicating herb – catnip. When I bring home a new catnip cat toy, they go crazy! However, after a while, those catnip cat toys begin to loose that wonderful catnip smell. At that point, they end up in our overflowing box of catnip toys of the past or in the garbage. The Jackson Galaxy The Vault Marinater Cat Toy helps to keep catnip cat toys fresh and fun!

Cinco and Manna eagerly helped me load up the Jackson Galaxy The Vault Marinater Cat Toy with Jackson Galaxy Organic Catnip! After marinating a few of their old toys inside, the cats were excited about those toys again. It was fun to see them react to the toys. I love this idea! It makes a great little cat toy chest too.

Collect all 4 Jackson Galaxy Ground Prey Teaser Cat Toys and attach the one your cat is in the mood to hunt!

Cinco and Manna absolutely love this toy! The Jackson Galaxy Ground Prey Teaser Cat Toy we received mimic the movements of a snake. What impressed me is how well weighted the snake is. It is heavy enough that I can really make it look like a snake as I move it along the ground. Sometimes toys like this are too light and they are difficult to drag on the floor without lifting them.

Cinco ready to pounce on the Jackson Galaxy Air Prey & Laser Teaser Cat Toy.

The Jackson Galaxy Air Prey & Laser Cat Toy solves one of the difficulties cat owners have had with one of their cat’s all time favorite toys – the laser. Now you don’t have to worry about how your cat’s impossible task of catching “the red dot” will affect them psychologically. By combining the idea of the familiar wand toy with feather attachments with the element of a removable laser, your cat now has something to catch after all of that work! The Will fit snuggly on your finger for more guided control of the beam (and there’s an on/off switch so you don’t need to hold a button down). The elastic line holding the feather attachment is retractable with the click of a button to keep it from getting tangled.

As has been showing in our weekly comic strip, Niptoons, Cinco and Manna love feather toys. This one proved to be irresistible and they loved the laser as well. Cinco really enjoys catching things that fly, so this was right up his alley.

Jackson Galaxy™ Mixed Twisted Refillable Kicker Cat Toy

Manna snuggling with the Jackson Galaxy Mixed Twisted Refillable Kicker Cat Toy.

The Jackson Galaxy Mixed Twisted Refillable Kicker Cat Toy is great for cats that love to bite and bunny kick their toys! It is the perfect length to be bear-hugged by a kitty. The midsection is a pouch made of sisal that you can fill with Jackson Galaxy Organic Catnip to make the toy even more enticing. The pouch is refillable, so you can add new catnip anytime it loses potency. As a bonus, this comes with a sample of Jackson Galaxy Organic Catnip!

Cinco and Manna have each found their own ways of using this toy. Cinco really enjoys kickers, so he lets this toy know who is boss! He also likes to lick the pouch in the middle. Manna thinks the Jackson Galaxy Mixed Twisted Refillable Kicker Cat Toy makes a great snuggle partner! I guess nothing makes for a better nap than cuddling a big toy filled with catnip.
