Santa Paws Reviews

We enjoy reading the product review on other blogs, so we thought we would review our gifts that Santa Paws brought us for Christmas.  Now that we're well into January, we've had time to thoroughly try them all out.  We don't really agree on most of them, so we will each give our own opinion.

*Please note: we did not receive any compensation for reviewing these products.  We're just giving our own honest opinions about stuff we got for Christmas.*

Teaser Wand 


This was supposed to be Cheerio's present, but quickly became Daffy's purrsonal property.


Cheerio - Even though this was in a bag with my name on it, this was obviously not for me.  As soon as I saw it come out, I was terrified!  This thing wants to get me.  I will have nothing to do with it.

Daffodil - This is the best thing I have seen for a long time.  I liked the feather and ball that came on it, but I LOVE the ribbons that Mommy added.  Apparently, it's really easy to trade out the attachments.  This is fun enough to get me up and moving around like a kitten.

Chloe - This toy is interesting, but the big kitty likes it a lot so I will let her have it.  I do not want to mess with her!

Cat's Meow(TM)

Oooooh... As Seen on TV!  This must be good!

Daffodil - It took me about 2 seconds to see that this is a toy designed to trick baby kitties.  I'm not easily tricked, so I'm not interested.

Chloe - This is a great toy!  I could play it for hours if Mommy would let me.  But she always turns it off and says something about the "batteries," whatever those are.  Apparently it uses three big ones.  The only other downside is that Cheerio chewed the little red mousy tail down to a nub on the first day we got this toy.  You would think they would make it a little more "chew-resistant".

Cheerio - It's amazing!  There's a little mouse that runs around and around, changing directions unexpectedly under the blanket.  How do they do that?  How come the mousy doesn't run away?  I don't know how it works, but I know I LOVE it!

Here's the website for this toy, but you can find it at Wal-Mart and other stores, too:

Laser Light

*Note - we are going to have to teach the humans to hold the phone the other way when taking video.  It's so hard to get them to understand!

Chloe - This red light makes me go crazy!  I just want to chase it, grab it, and make it stop moving.  Mommy likes for me to play it because she says its good "exercise" for me. 

Cheerio - This is the best thing ever.  The little red spot goes everywhere!  I love when it goes way up the wall and I can jump to smack it.

Daffodil - I don't know what those kids are talking about.  I don't see any little red spot...


Bunches of Mice, Balls, and Catnip Toys!


Daffodil - Eh, they're okay.

Chloe - These are good for a few minutes of paw-hockey, but it gets a little old.

Cheerio - Old???  These never get old!  Especially the glittery ones.  The only thing that slows me down from playing with these constantly is that they somehow all go under the couch within about 5 minutes of playing.

Here's ones that are similar to what we got.  (We think every pack may be a little different.):

Chloe's Purple Sweater



Chloe - Unlike another kitty around here (ahem, Cheerio), I actually like to dress up.  I love the sequin heart design on this sweater, and the material is so soft and cozy.  The only complaint I have is that the sizing must be wrong.  Mommy says it's a small for doggies, but it doesn't quite fasten on me.  I know I am definitely not medium doggy sized, so someone must have made a mistake.  Maybe this one is an extra-small with the wrong label...  That must be it.


Daffy's Cuddle Kitty


Daffodil - I wasn't quite sure about this when I first saw it.  Why did I get a stuffed kitty, I wondered?  But this isn't like other stuffed animals.  The material inside is very comfy, and it can be microwaved to make it warm and cozy.  I like to sleep with my head raised a little, anyway, and this kitty helps me relax and rest well.

Catnip "Caves"


Daffodil - Eh, I sniffed this a couple of times, but even though it clearly says "catnip" on the package, it doesn't smell like catnip.

Chloe - I don't know what to do with this bag.  It's not really big enough to crawl inside of, and it's too thick to make a nice rattling noise when you jump on it.  Maybe Mommy can use it to carry home some kitty toys...

Cheerio - The tabby kitty on the package looks very happy with this product.  This tabby cat is not so happy.  I think I'll go chase that mousy that's running under the blanket again.


Well, there you have it...  Our unbiased opinions about our Santa Paws gifts.  You don't think any of our negative remarks will affect our haul next Christmas, do you?  Maybe we shouldn't publish this one...  You know, just in case the Big Guy reads our blog...
