We are on vacation Oct 19-29. Shop, but understand, we will not resume shipping until Oct 30.
Over the years, we have discovered that many cats love chasing their toys. They like interesting shapes to toss and catch. Cats also like small toys that have contrasting textures. In short, like many of us, they like play to be intriguing.
Our Kitty Barbells are perfect for stalking, flipping, and chasing. Sold in sets of 3
50% of our testers adore these toys- 50% do not. Please leave a note in your order IF you would like to try one out. We will include one in your box!
Working off how much kitties love pencils, Q tips, and our natural wool dust bunnies, we have designed a toy that is light weight and interesting.
We use paper straws made right here in Indiana. Aardvark makes their straws using food grade eco friendly paper and dyes- they are totally dedicated to creating an important alternative to plastic straws!
We chose black and white straws- they provide the contrast that stimulate cats' interest.
Each 3 inch straw axis is double in thickness and sturdy (straw inside a straw). We add little wool circles to each end, holding them all together with strong hemp twine.
** your cat may chew the double layer straw portion- a few of our tester kitties have done so. Some cats are very special in the chewing department. We have been careful to make sure the hemp twine is a short length and the wool circles are small enough to prevent them from being a swallow hazard. If this chewing is concerning for you, perhaps a different chase toy would be better for your household. You know your cats best!
Our wool circles are cut from washed, felted, and double rinsed reclaimed sweaters and lend a complexity and fun to each Kitty Barbell. Our hemp twine is grown/produced in Romania and is very earth friendly.
