I almost declined when I first received the pitch to review a toy called KittyWhip. 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.

At first glance, these toys 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.


A safe alternative to playing with string and ribbons, these toys are made with quality craftsmanship and provide countless hours of enjoyment and exercise of chasing and “hunting” for your kitty. Rugged construction ensures this cat toy will not bend, break or wear out like plastic toys.


The toys are handcrafted in the USA from 100% natural and sustainable materials. They come in different models: a thin cotton cord, a leather cord, a thicker sisal rope and a “junior” version for small kittens.

We love these wands so much that we selected them for our 2020 Product of the Year.

9 Comments on Surprise Your Cat With a Kitty Whip – Exclusive Discount

  1. Perfect timing. I was looking for an interactive cat toy to entertain my sweeties. The scores of balls, chase toys, catnip fish, spinning things and other itemsthey have all over the house was boring them. Now I have to decide which whip to buy!

  2. One thing I look for in a cat toy is if I can make noise with it somehow. A lot of our play time is just the cat watching or listening to the prey. I think I’ll get the Kitty Whip with the leather, I’ll be able to make different noises with it.

  3. I bought the leather one when you recommended these before and my cat Ren loves our playtime every night with this interactive toy. It is hands down his favorite. So…I purchased the sisal one for Christmas for him so we’ll see how he likes it. It sounds like that may be the least favorite but every cat is different so I hope he likes it. Now I’m wondering if I should order the cotton one as well. As you said, these are so well made and the leather one I have had for awhile is proof as it looks brand new. Thank you for letting us know about these.

  4. Since you first made us aware of the Kittywhip, I’ve purchased three for our home and bought several for friends. These are great toys! We have the leather and the cotton version. My kitties like both, but I prefer the cotton. They are all very durable, and a great suggestion for Christmas for you and for friends! Thanks for the recommendation, Ingrid.

  5. Which one does Allegra like the most? In your review you show the leather one. Does she like the sisal too? I am trying to decide which Lulu would like the most. We have had her 3 years and she hasn’t experienced Christmas yet because we have always been so broke to buy gifts for anyone. We don’t have much this year either, but I want to do something for her and the other girls.
