Neko Flies Kiticatterfly

We won! It is our first time winning anything. We won a Neko Flies Kiticatterfly from a giveaway on  The Swiss Cat Blog. Elizabeth and Cornelius couldn’t be more happy with their new toy.

Neko Flies

Neko Flies makes a series of cat toys that resemble different small prey animals. They are attached to a long string which is easily to attached to a wand. My cats were immediately obsessed with hunting this little kiticatterfly. It seems to be very well made and hasn’t fallen apart after a few dozen intense play sessions. I do not let my cats play with these types of toys unsupervised as I am afraid they would eat pieces of them. It is a great interactive toy that builds your cat’s confidence and provides stimulation and exercise.

I want to know, does anyone else’s cat growl over toys like this? Let me know in the comments! I remember the first time Elizabeth was just a young kitten, about 4 months old and she made loud scary growling noises. Now they both do this over certain toys but it is usually just the first couple times they see a new toy. They won’t do this over a ribbon or simple toys, only over toys that look like prey animals.

A big thank you to Claire at The Swiss Cat Blog. She is a fellow Swiss cat blogger that writes in 4 languages, very talented!

    Neko Flies are pawesome! We like the kittycada, but my cats would also like to try the kattipede :) I highly recommend Neko Flies to my cat behavior clients who need to play more with their cats – because they do resemble small insect and bug prey items, they are more realistic and trigger cats’ prey drives better than a lot of other toys. It’s not a surprise that your cats will growl at the toy or with it in their mouths! :)

      I’ve found that my two cats have different preferences. Elizabeth will play with almost anything. But Cornelius only goes crazy over very small toys that are furry and look like small mice. I think its important for people to try different toys to figure out what your cat likes.

        I completely agree! I have a lot of clients who say that their cats don’t play, but bring out the right toy, and those kitties will get moving! It’s so important to experiment :)
