Jackson Galaxy Teams Up With Petmate For Cat-Focused Line
Who better to create a line of essential cat gear and toys than renowned cat behavior expert, animal advocate, and star of Animal Planet’s “My Cat from Hell,” Jackson Galaxy?
The Jackson Galaxy® Collection by Petmate® focuses on cats as the heroes in Cat Play with a wide variety of interactive and solo play products to catify their home. Each product speaks to natural cat behaviors – Hunt, Catch, Kill, Eat, Groom and Sleep.
Thomas received a few complimentary products to play with and review. Here's what he thought:
Comfy Clamshell Bed
Thomas loved this bed (hence the 5-star rating!) The purple inner lining is super soft, and it has a drawstring which cinches the sides up for a more snug fit, or you can un-cinch it altogether so that it lays flat, like a fuzzy blanket. Plus - it's revsersible!
Thomas liked the bed folded up into the circle and wanted me to stop asking him questions so he could resume sleeping in it. Spoiled!
Asteroid Puzzle Treat Toy
Thomas gave this item 3 stars. When I asked him why, he only responded that, "Anything that makes it harder for me to eat treats is a terrible idea!"
As a human, I must say however, that this toy makes a lot of sense when you're looking at it from a perspective of a cat's well-being. The idea is to give your kitty some exercise while finding treats hidden in the nooks and crannies of this toy. Cat parents can push in different nubs each time to vary the difficulty of the toy so I have to say that Thomas's star rating here is a little biased and it should actually be higher.
The Jackson Galaxy Space Station was the big hit of these items! It's an update on the classic "crazy circle" cat game. It has a flat elevated section inside the bowl that your cat can observe, lounge, scratch, and play on. The inside part also features a removable and replaceable scratch pad.
The holes are perfectly kitten-sized if you're housing a litter of fluffy buddies. Although Thomas is hardly a kitten, he loved "hiding" behind the Space Station and stalking my legs. The holes gave him a good vantage point for stalking (even though I could see his ENTIRE body behind it) and the ball is (still) a constant source of entertainment. Every so often, from another room, I'll hear the swishing of the ball going round the circle.
