I got a first look at the new Jackson Galaxy Collection from Petmate at Global Pet Expo in March, and again at Superzoo in July. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some of the products for Allegra and Ruby, so the girls and I were excited when the package from Petmate arrived last week. We got to test the Mojo Maker Ground and Air Wands, and the Natural Playtime toy assortment.
The wands were an immediate hit – I could barely get them out of the packaging before the girls started pouncing after the toys. The Ground Wand features a telescoping wand with a rope toy attachment, the Air Wand features the same wand with a retractable feather attachment so you can adjust the length. I had a hard time getting decent photos and video because the girls were so crazy about these toys that they moved much too fast for me to capture their exuberance properly. I wasn’t able to get any video of Ruby, who raced and jumped after these wand toys like a possessed kitten, but managed to shoot the brief video of Allegra below:
I don’t know who loves the Natural Playtime assortment more: me, or the girls. Made from all natural materials in bright colors that cats can see, these toys are truly the cat’s meow. Allegra is particularly fascinated with the sisal spiral toy. Ruby prefers the little ball. They both seem to like the orange mouse equally, it keeps disappearing and reappearing all over the house.
I know you can’t wait to get your hands on some of these fantastic toys, and Petmate is giving away an assortment to one lucky reader. But wait, there’s more! The winner will also receive a copy of Jackson’ s new book, Catification: Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!)
