Review: Dezi & Roo Wiggly Wand


This post contains affiliate links*

We are big fans of Dezi & Roo here. The company was founded by our resident feline veterinarian, Dr. Lynn Bahr. With Dezi & Roo, Dr. Bahr combined her passion for strengthening the human-animal bond with her veterinary background and knowledge of what cats need and want. The company name was inspired by two cats of the same names.

Dr. Bahr knows what cats want and how to keep them entertained, and designs her toys accordingly. The Wiggly Wand is no exception. It features a comfortable handle and fishing line, but the real fun is in the attachments. We got the cuttlefish and buzzer attachments.


Allegra went nuts for this toy. She can get bored with wand toys pretty quickly, but the cuttlefish held her attention, and she gets excited every time I pull the wand out of the closet. She also liked the buzzer, although it wasn’t quite as big a hit as the cuttlefish.


For more information about the toys, and to purchase, please visit Dezi & Roo’s Etsy shop.

I think this year, more than ever before, it’s important to reflect on the holiday’s true meaning: a time to count one’s blessings. Even in the middle of turmoil and tragedy, it’s always possibly to find things to be grateful for.  Continue reading…

Mews and Nips: Foster Kittens Make Terminally Ill Woman’s Birthday Special


Get  your tissues ready, because you’re going to need them for this story. In early November, CatRescue 901, an animal rescue based in Sydney, Australia, received an unusual request from the daughter of a terminally ill woman. Due to the level of care her mother requires, it’s not possible for her to adopt or foster, but her daughter wanted to make what would most likely be her last birthday special. The rescue immediately agreed to send three kittens for a birthday visit. Visit for the full story and more wonderful photos of the visit. I hope this story may inspire others in a similar situation.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: Continue reading…
