Tipsy Nip Tuesday! Tickle Pickle Review and Giveaway

Tipsy Nip Organic Catnip Products are on a mission.

To have a Tickle Pickle™ in EVERY cat home!

When our friends at Tipsy Nip Organic Catnip Products asked me if I would like to review their wonderful products, I quickly responded  YES, before my mom even saw the email.  I mean, organic cat nip?  Oh yes, I  am more than

Tipsy Nip Products

Tipsy Nip Products

willing to  take on that responsibility.

When my package arrived, and it was in fact my package,  it had my name on it and everything, I didn’t even have to read the label to know it was my package from Tipsy Nip. The delightful aroma was wafting my way even before Mailman Phil left the porch. I needed my mom to assist me in opening the box. I was super excited when I saw all the wonderful products for me to try.

But as usual, my mom had to read all about the products first. Here is what we learned.

You will be happy to know that Tipsy Nip Organic Catnip Products are made in Vermont, and are created using only the best quality materials and ingredients. The company is committed to creating safe, quality toys and treats.  Everything they use is made, grown, or manufactured in the USA. Their catnip is certified organic, and  I just want to say that it smells like the best catnip…EVER!   (I took in some serious whiffs while waiting for my mom to let me at it.)

Tipsy Nip wooden ballIn my package was the Tickle Pickle™. This is their signature toy and their BEST SELLING product. This toy is stuffed with 100% eye-crossing, high potency Organic Tipsy Nip™. There are no polly fillers, just 100% organic catnip.

Milia, from Tipsy Nip was so nice she even sent me a Tipsy Nip™ Ball, a nontoxic wooden ball infused with Organic Tipsy Nip™. This is a safe alternative to mylar, plastic and other toxic materials most commonly used to make cat toys.  And just in case, I needed more catnip, I received a container of pure Tipsy Nip™.  That container is stored out of my reach.  My parents told me that I need to Tipsy Nip™ in moderation.

Cat Power Tower Releases Three New Models!

I didn’t think my sunroom could get any better, but then my parents set up the Cat Power Tower (CPT). Lazy Leopard and I have had so Cat Power Tower  Gracey and Lazy Leopardmuch fun on the CPT that I have almost forgotten  about chomping the Fig Tree and the Office Cactus in the three months I have now been enjoying my Cat Power Tower.

My favorite is the bird carousal.  Those feathers tease me and I can really let them have it without hurting myself or the feathers.  But there are many other reasons to enjoy the CPT as  discussed in my interview with Pat, the  CEC (Chief Executive Cat) at Cat Power Tower.

My parents have  noticed that I am more playful these days.  Exercise is good for everyone and the CPT added more activity to my day. My parents also  said the CPT is helping to keep me out of mischief.

Many of you expressed an interest in the Cat Power Tower but were worried that you might not have enough space for the 3 tier tower or that it might not be in your budget. So, Pat, being a cat, therefore inherently super smart, created three new models of the CPT. Perhaps one of these new models will fit your feline needs.

Cat Power Tower! The Ultimate Cat Entertainment Center

Friends, Please give a warm welcome to Pat, the  feline behind the creation of the  Cat Power Tower.

GRACEY: Pat, first I want to welcome you to our Conservation Cub Club. I am truly honored to be interviewing  a creative genius. Not only are you the Chief Feline Officer at Cat Power Tower, weren’t you also instrumental in the design of the Cat Power Tower (CPT)?

PAT: The honor is mine Gracey. Yes, I had a paw in the creation of the Cat Power Tower. I started out as product inspirer, and then moved up to product tester. Now I’m actually the company’s CEC (Chief Executive Cat), but I think I like Chief Feline Officer (CFO) better! It sounds more feminine and with my name being Pat, I’ve been mistaken as a boy by some of my Facebook friends.

GRACEY: Oh, I like that term  product inspirer!  I thought you had to be involved, because only a feline mind could create such a fantastic cat entertainment center. Ask your dad if you can have both the CEC (Chief Executive Cat) and the CFO (Chief Feline Officer) titles at Wiser Pet Products. That way you won’t be giving up any power!  What first inspired you to create the Cat Power Tower?

The Tiniest Tiger’s Winky Wion Toy! Worth the Wait!

Friends, I understand that my parents have a lot of different things to do to maintain our habitat. And I really do appreciate everything they do to keep me safe and comfortable, but yesterday, I would have appreciated them even more if they would have realized how important it was for them to open the mail for me!

Can you imagine how excited I was when I saw the envelope addressed to me, Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger from my Friend Winky?  Oh boy, I just couldn’t wait to see my new toys that I won from the auction Tiny Timmy sponsored  to help our Friend Myron Wood.

But I had to wait.  I had to wait all afternoon and into the early evening.  In fact, I had to wait until after the sun room was locked at the 8:00 pm curfew.  I kept trying to tell them  to open the mail, but they would look at my Chow Bowl (Code Green) and then check my Drinkwell Water Fountain which was flowing free and clear, then they would just pet my head or scratch me behind my ears. Sometimes, I don’t understand how they are able to get along in the world when it takes them so long to understand the simplest of things. ~sigh~

My mom decided that maybe I would like a treat. And to be honest, that wasn’t a bad idea.  So she placed a couple of my Hill’s Prescription Diet Hypoallergenic Treats in a Treat Toy. The package says it is a fun toy that dispenses treats. It also says that is is mentally and physically satisfying.

You know what I find mentally and physically satisfying?  When my mom dispenses the treats directly to my mouth!  Now I know there are many of my cousins that like these contraptions. But I don’t understand why we need to complicate the snack process.

See, there are my treats, inside the treat toy. Then they put the toy together and I am supposed to use my paws to knock the treats out of the toy.   I voiced my refusal to participate and collapsed on the floor feeling weak from their lack of understanding that I wanted them to open the mail!

After about 1000 hours,  my mom sees the package from Winky and she says “Oh Gracey, look you got a package from Winky!”  ~Finally~   She opens the package and places not one but two toys on the counter!  TWO!

Winky Wocotpus & Winky Wion

This was so exciting to see a Winky Woctopus and a Winky Wion.  I couldn’t wait to play with my new toys.  My mom gave me the Winky Woctopus first.

It was love at first sniff.  Mom tried to take it back from me and I took a swipe at her. I know I should not have done that, but I had to wait all day to play with my new Winky toys.   My parents laughed when I growled at my dad when he tried to take Winky Woctopus away from me.  He worries too much.  He thought that I might bite off the eyes and choke, but Winky thought of everything and the eyes are sewn on snug as can be.

Winky told me his mom buys special safety eyes-the kind they put in teddy bears and kids toys. …the eyes have a post on them, and they come with these little nuts that you push on, they are like zip ties… once you get them past the first ridge, there is no turning back!!


My mom mentioned saving the Winky Wion because he is so cute and special.  But I snagged it with my back feet.  I am not giving up my Winky Toys.

Thank you Winky and Winky’s Mom for making such great and fun toys!
