The Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate
Our friends at Petmate teamed up with Jackson Galaxy to create a new line of cat toys. The Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate is sure to have something for every cat not only to enjoy but to enhance Cat Mojo! A few weeks ago, Annie and Eddie were asked to review a couple of items from the new collection and I have to say both were a big hit here at our house.
The Jackson Galaxy Motor Mouse
As soon as I placed the Petmate Jackson Galaxy Motor Mouse with Catnip on the floor, Eddie decided to claim the toy but Annie wasn’t happy about that. Usually she is the first to try out anything new, so Eddie must have really wanted this new toy.
Eddie decided to be generous and share the new mouse toy with Annie. They both had a lot of fun batting it around and figuring out how to make the mouse “dance”. When you pull the tail on the mouse, it shakes and scurries a little bit along the floor. Both cats really like ground play so this toy was perfect for them.
Annie was curious about the Comfy Cocoon and watched closely as I placed it down beside Eddie. Eddie is our little cave dweller so I guessed he would enjoy the comfy Cocoon the most. This Comfy Cocoon provides a feeling of security for your cat because the front and middle sections adjust to your cat’s size and snuggle preference. And there is a back zipper providing an escape route should your cat need to make a break from some of their house mates.
Eddie just got all snuggled inside the Comfy Cocoon when Mercy decided to check out the action. Mercy and Eddie get along just fine, but boys will be boys, and Eddie doesn’t like to be in a position where he can’t make a quick getaway.
When Mercy moves in a little closer, Eddie evaluates his next move.
Eddie decides it is time to exit out the back of the Comfy Cocoon. I made sure the rear zipper was unzipped so that he could make a quick getaway.
Eddie, also known as, Houdini makes a quick escape but leaves the Motor Mouse behind.
Guess who was ready to pounce as soon as Eddie left the Motor Mouse inside the Comfy Cocoon? As you can see, Annie and Eddie really like both of these products from the collection.
The Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate includes a variety of wands, toys, scratchers, tunnels and tents to help create an ideal cat environment. Each product speaks to natural cat behaviors — Hunt, Catch, Kill, Eat, Groom and Sleep.
