Allegra with Neko Flies Kattipede

Allegra and Ruby were super excited to test three new attachments for the popular Neko Flies interactive toy. Neko Flies is a perennial favorite at our house.

Nekochan Enterprises, Inc., a company specializing in the development, manufacturing, and distribution of unique, high quality pet products, was started by Ellen Tsuyuki, a multiple cat owner, because she was dissatisfied with toys available in the cat toy marketplace. Ellen decided to create a toy that would measure up to her and her cats’ particular needs. Ellen named the company after her mother’s Abyssynian cat Nekochan (“neko” means cat in Japanese, “chan” is a term of endearment). The Neko Flies attachments mimic critters cats might encounter in the wild. For someone like me, who is not fond of creepy crawlies, the likeness is almost a bit eerie at times!

The three newest attachments will be available late October/early November. We received the Kattipede, which looks like a green and red centipede, complete with wiggly legs, the Kiticatterfly, a butterfly with beautiful shiny irridescent wings, and the Foxifur Kittenator, which resembles a very furry mouse.

As you can see from this action shot of Allegra playing with the Kiticatterfly, the toys were a big hit.

Ruby with Kattipede

This photos shows Ruby after “killing” the Kattipede. What you can’t see in the photo, but can hear in the video below, is her low growl. She always does this after catching a toy.

The girls and I loved the older Neko Flies toys, but these new ones appear to be even more popular. They’re a little larger than the older ones, and they move even better. If I had to pick a favorite, I’d pick the Kiticatterfly. When we play with it, the girls’ behavior is very much the same as it is when they’ve got a moth cornered. To me, that’s a testament as to how well these toys mimic real critters.

I’ll leave you with this video of Allegra playing with the Kattipede.

The new attachments will be available late October/early November, and we’ll have an exclusive discount code for Conscious Cat readers only at that time. In the meantime, please visit the Neko Flies website to take a look at all their products.

20 Comments on Allegra and Ruby give new Neko Flies toys four paws up

  1. Just tried to order a complete set of Neko Flies and it would not accept the coupon code CSCCAT2.. They said code not valid! .??? 🙁

    • Neko Flies is having some technical difficulties with their site, Paulette. The comment should work today – I’ll update the post with the code as soon as I hear from Neko Flies. I apologize for any inconvenience.

  2. Our kitties love love love the Neko flies too, but I guess each kitty is different (reading comment above about kitty who is afraid of Neko fly). We have kitties who love the red dot, for example, and a kitty who runs from it in fear! 🙂

  3. It’s great to watch Ruby and Allegra having so much fun with these toys!

    Alas, my kitty is afraid of his NekoFlies dragonfly toy. I cannot figure that out, because when out in the back yard he does fantastic leaps and flips for the real dragonflies.

    Also he loves his DaBird toy. Just can’t figure it out why he’s afraid of the NekoFlies toy!
