Review: KittyWhip Cat Toys


This post contains affiliate links*

I have to be honest: when I first received the pitch to review a toy called KittyWhip, I almost declined. It just seemed like such an awful name for a cat toy. But once I took a look at the toys, I decided to accept – and I’m so glad I did.

KittyWhip features

At first glance, they don’t look like much. A string on a stick – how exciting could this possibly be? Well, let me cut to the chase: of all the wand toys we have in our home (and we have a lot of them,) few others have held Allegra’s interest like these.

Handcrafted in the USA from natural and sustainable materials, these toys feature a sturdy wooden wand. They come in three different versions: a thin cotton rope, a leather rope, and a thicker sisal rope. The design has a patent pending. They are extremely well made and have a nice hand feel to them. They also come in a “junior” version for small kittens.


Putting KittyWhip to the test

Allegra went completely nuts for these toys. She pounced and chased after these strings like a kitten, and she didn’t want to stop. Normally, she gets bored after a few minutes of play. Not with the KittyWhip. In fact, whenever I try to put the toy back in the closet, she follows me and cries and cries until I start a new round of play!


I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to see my girl so engaged in play. I still don’t like the name, but this toy deserves our coveted Seal of Approval.

    I just received my Kitty Whip, and it’s a HUGE hit. One of my cats never plays. She’s playing now! I just ordered two more. We have a big house! 😉

    I HIGHLY recommend this toy and thank you, Ingrid, for the recommendation! It’s a winner.

        A BIG hit. I’m buying two more for gifts. And starting tomorrow (Cyber Week) he’s having a 20% off sale. And the product is already inexpensive.

      I hope they will love it as much as Allegra does.

    She looks so much like my cat Spider, except he has white underfur instead of gold. Beautiful cat!

    Do you think buying two different kinds up front is a good plan? The leather and thin cotton? I feel weird buying not just one but two strings on a stick for my cats hahahaa.

      Allegra loves them both so I can’t tell you whether it’s the variety she loves or just the toy itself, but even after a few weeks, these toys still get her jumping and chasing like few others I have seen.

    A string on a stick. Two of Miss Lu’s favorite things. I bet it would be a hit with her.

    Which material does Allegra like best? Leather? Sisal? Cotton?

      She likes the leather and thinner cotton rope best.
