Product Review Policies

I occasionally publish posts that review products or services on Playful Kitty. Sometimes I purchase these products or services and other times they are provided by the company that produces them for the purpose of review. Compensation given to me for reviews does not guarantee a positive review, my opinions are honest.

It can take 4-6 weeks from the time I receive the product to the time a review is published on Playful Kitty. Sending me a product does not guarantee a review. Email me to get your review on my schedule. I provide full disclosure about any products I’ve received for free or any compensation I’ve received for the review at the top of the review. Reviews where I receive free product or other compensation also use “nofollow” links.

What is a sponsored post?

A sponsored post is any post that I was compensated to publish on Playful Kitty. Compensation can take a number of forms including free product, money, travel, etc. Any compensation does not affect the opinions I provide about a company’s products or services. Rather, I accept compensation for all of the time that it takes me to research, write, take photos, video, etc for that company.

All sponsored posts have a clear disclosure statement at the top of the sponsored post. I also use “nofollow” links (links that won’t give a company better placement on Google) for all sponsored posts as per Google and the FTC.

What is an affiliate link?

Playful Kitty is a part of some affiliate programs. In an affiliate program, a publisher (like Playful Kitty) uses links (known as affiliate links) that promote a particular website or product. Depending on the individual affiliate program, the publisher either receives a certain amount of money for the number of times an affiliate link is clicked on or a small percentage of any sale that is made through a click on an affiliate link. Some affiliate programs use cookies to track clicks on links and purchases, others will use promo codes.

Playful Kitty’s Affiliates

As a participant in the affiliate program, we are required to make this legal statement:

“ is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to

Amazon, a third party affiliate marketing network, uses cookies to help make sure I get a commission when you buy a product after clicking on a link or ad banner that takes you to the site of one of their merchants. You can read Amazon’s Privacy Policy.”

In the past, Playful Kitty has had other affiliates such as Ebay,, Dezi & Roo, and Magic Zymes. I am working to update the website and remove these old links, but there may still be a few out there. The list above provides the names of all of the current affiliate relationships.

Affiliate links are disclosed in every post they are used on. Sometimes the disclosure is at the bottom of the post and other times I identify the links right where they are linked in the post. Affiliate links are also used in the sidebar of the website under the “Visit Our Affiliates” title.
