When I first gave the cat nip to my cat, he went NUTS! Rolled around, hugged it and basically was stoned. I had to take it away from him. He still plays with it, but not as long, so just gets kind of mellow! I gave the other 2 that I ordered as gifts but haven't heard their reactions yet.

My cat didn't like it but your cat may. Evidently he could care less about catnip. He kicked it a few times and that was about it. The item itself though is extremely well made and would be a joy for any cat that loves catnip.

The cat really loves this. Just the crackly noise from the wrapper gets her excited. This is long enough to safely play with and not get clawed.

My cats love these "kick" sausages! I have 3 indoor cats & these are by far their favorite toy. I keep buying more - the patterns are so fun. I also have an outdoor feral family of 4 that I was able to trap & neuter. They have been with me now for 4 years & I purchased some of these great toys for them. It is so heartwarming to see those guys having so much fun as well. The cat nip is so enticing for them & lasts a long time. I will continue buying this product for all my cats.

I have ordered several of these over the last few years and plan on ordering more of them. They are well made and every cat I have gifted with one loves them! They are practically indestructible...even should your beagle get hold of it to use as a chew toy! Please don't stop offering these in your catalog as I cannot find them anywhere else.

I received one of these as a gift a while ago and my cats loved it. I had to order some more because I have a lot of cats and one was just not enough. I also used one at the rescue shelter I volunteer for and it is always a hit. This is the best catnip toy I have ever had for my cats and I buy a lot of catnip toys for them and I have had cats for many years.

I bought 2 Hot Cat Toys for my 5 cats, only one went crazy with this Hot Cat Toy right out of the package for about 6 minutes. The other 4 could care less. Even after I squeezed the cat nip to re-fresh it......nothing. I bought these because I read all the praise in the reviews. . .

It's a good toy and my cat likes it but we can't keep it out all the time because the catnip is overpowering in smell and intensity. We can only let our cat play with it for about an hour and then we take it away for a week or more and repeat. She just gets too destructive and crazy otherwise.

I have purchased several of these wonderful toys. Recently I took a box of 25 to our local ASPCA here in Key West. I unwrapped several and spread them around in the "catery". Here, the animals are not kept in pens or cages. There are several rooms with rugs, easy chairs etc. for the cats and people can sit and enjoy the kitties. It was so fun seeing them play with these amazing toys. I am told they share! Great price, worth every penny and more!

If your cat responds to catnip, there is a good chance he or she will enjoy this toy. My kitties love it! It gets rolled on, chewed on, groomed, "beat-up", it's a pillow, and a scratch toy, they drag it around, hide it and stalk it. Extremely durable also. Most toys last a few months before they are destroyed, but the HOT CAT has lasted almost a year! Purchasing another today, my cats keep looking for the one I had to throw away.

Midnight likes his new toy. He plays with it by himself but really likes it when I drag it around like a snake. I do think he would like a softer cover for nuzzling. I've been thinking of covering it in a soft old sock. But all it all a good purchase.

My cat fell on this "snake" like a mouse on cheese! Even though it's been 2 weeks, and it is lying on floor in living room, she will still attack it and kick while holding it for about 10 min at a time several times a day. I know the catnip smell will fade. It's too bad there is no way to replace it.

Very nice - well made, but my cat is not very interested in it as a toy, only uses it for the catnip effect. This is typical of my pet toward cat toys however, so if your cat generally enjoys them, this is a really nice one.

I was a little skeptical that this would be a toy that my cat would like. As cats can be, he's pretty finicky. So when he opened his gift on Christmas morning, I was surprised to see that he actually spent quite a bit of time with it and still does. Amazing, because usually it's a cursory sniff and a turn of his back to any new item I try to entice him with. It might not look like much, no feathers, mice or shiny baubles that us humans think interest cats. This toy is by far the best and most favored toy I've purchased in a long time. Well worth it, and I'm betting your cat will think so too!

I have 3 cats and they all enjoy hugging licking and dragging the this cat nip toy--I always have 3 in the house so they don't take it away from each other. They treat it like a leopard treats a gazelle--they drag it between their legs and will even play fetch with it bringing it to me so I'll throw it for them and then again and again. Who says cats won't play fetch They will with this toy!

My cats absolutely go banana cakes for this toy! I catch myself laughing at their antics as they manage to toss it into the air and lunge after it when it falls to the floor. They pounce on it, attack it, lay on their backs and attack it with their hind feet, chew on it, slobber on it, curl up with it - and in general, enjoy it fully. Four cats, four toys. And still they manage to squirrel away one another's toys.

My catnip "snake" is my favorite toy. I love it and have collected several of these snakes over the past several years. They last--it seems--forever, and I absolutely LOVE playing with them and arranging them in different designs on the floor in my home. My parents have spoiled me with many wonderful toys and gifts, but my very favorites are my Isabella Catnip "Snakes." I have already put new ones on my Christmas List and Birthday Wish List.

I wish my cat loved this as much as the other reviewers, but we're working on it. I'm retraining her with this toy when she tries to play with me by following me and biting my ankles.

Once she does get a good hug on it with all four legs she enjoys it.

One of my cats smelled the catnip toy still sealed in the wrapper, still in the box and he was going nuts over it. I took it as a signal that I should open up the box and get the catnip toy out. I have 3 kitties and all three of them went nuts over these toys. Potent, fresh catnip and the fabric used is very durable as well. I highly recommend these catnip toys.

I was the tiniest bit reluctant to purchase this toy because Joe Pye generally favors toys with feathers. It was so cute, though, that I ordered it regardless. When it arrived, I unwrapped it and Joe Pye went crazy - crazier! He loves it! It is well made, has a pleasant texture and size, and smells deliciously of catnip. The only "down side" to his new toy is that he constantly sits beside it, looking first at it and then at me... Well you know the rest! I spend a good bit of time sneaking the toy around so Joe Pye can POUNCE on it! Thanks for a great toy for a fussy kitty!

Our cat, Bruiser, keeps one of the Hot Toys going 24-7 at our house. He will usually give it a nudge or a nibble during the day when passing and a full blown tussle after each meal. We do not ask what goes on with it overnight, but it moves around a lot. During the holiday season, we give these to friend cats in behalf of Bruiser and some find their way to the folks who operate the Second Chance Cat Colony here on the Virginia Peninsula. Bruiser is going on 7 years old and these toys have always been his one and only favorite. Others toys come and go, but these are sacrosanct.

My family and I have been buying these amazing toys for years. My Mom was the one who originally discovered them and gave my cats several as a present many, many years ago. I give these as presents to cat lovers. I have yet to meet a cat that can resist these toys. They last for years. Eventually one of my cats will spend weeks and weeks chewing one of the 'hotdog' sections and gleefully enjoy the tiny dusting of catnip he is able to get out. These are my 4 cats' Number 1 toy - and they are cat toy connoisseurs, having zillions toys to choose from!!!

One of my 2 cats liked it a lot, but it wasn't a hit with the other one.

My cats went nuts when this came! They had a blast taking turns rubbing their noses on it and rolling around the floor.

My cats absolutely love these! They received them as a Christmas gift from their "grandmother." I recently fostered a dog who destroyed them, so I just ordered them some new ones. They were so excited. I have a cat who carries one around from room to room. Great product!

If you have a cat, young or old, they will FLIP over this awesome toy! I have four cats ages 5-14 and they ALL start going crazy for these even when they are still in the plastic they were shipped in. Make sure you buy enough so that each cat has their own- I speak from experience! Also, they last forever! I finally threw out the first one I bought two years ago and only because one of the cats finally ripped a hole in it!

I've ordered hot cat toys many times in the past. I still have the old ones from previous cats who have passed on, and my cats still love them. I order these as gifts for friends who have kitties as well. They are the perfect toy and stand up well for years.

Not all it's marketed to be - at least with my cats. I have a catnip fiend and one who can take or leave catnip. Neither has shown more than a passing interest in this item so I am disappointed, given the catalog write-up.

The hot cat toy is the best cat toy I have ever purchased. The cats never get tired of it. I replace it after it gets so dirty I can't stand it.

We ordered these catnip 'sausages' years ago. My son suggested we get them new ones this year as the catnip may be diluted but these are the only toys they play with. They LOVE them for some reason.

I have bought these for years. Cats love them and my cat Gumbo drags it around and brings it to me to throw.

By She Loves It!
I got this for my mom's 13 year old cat, Sallie. Sallie LOVED it! She played with it for about 20 minutes then dragged it out to another room where she laid next to it, making sure that it was touching her back, while she took a little nap. Tired from all the play earlier. Mom says when Sallie gets up in the morning, she goes and finds her new 'toy.' She plays with it awhile and then snuggles up to it and takes a nap.

Our three cats have been sharing two of your hot cat toys for about a year now and I think some of the flavor is gone from them so I thought I'd surprise them with new ones.
Submitted on Apr 4, 2011
Thanks, I love your stuff. And so do my cats. Last order I got one cat toy for them and one for a gift. Silly me. They commandeered both immediately. And had a blast with the packing paper and box while they were at it.

You have an exceptional selection of products in your lovely catalog which I have enjoyed for years. After 10 years, my cat still loves his catnip sausage from you yet he has never had interest in any other catnip toy. Thank you.

There's always at least one special something in every Isabella catalog that just calls out to me. And I'm not even counting the catnip snake toy. I think I've bought half a dozen over time. Thank you for your unerring quality.

This is my 4th order for these magical kitty toys--gifts for other cat lovers and replacements for my own kitties. They love these snakes.

I bought the hot cat toy for my two finicky felines. I didn't think they'd like it, but with the rave reviews this toy got, I thought I'd give it a try. My youngest, DiFranco, age 6, will not put it down! It's his little girlfriend. He licks it, cuddles with it, rubs all over it, and gets angry if I even think about coming near it. Thanks for this! I'm going to have to order more!!!!!

By far the best cat toy ever! I bought one last year for our two cats who loved it. We recently adopted a big silly orange tabby boy from a no kill shelter - big boy has since claimed the original toy as his own. He's licked and played with it so much it's gotten kind of icky ;-, so I'm getting new toys for our other two cats. Big boy gets to keep his!
Thanks for stocking a great product.

This is truly the best cat toy ever. I always get one for my cat and one for my neighbor's cats. My neighbor is wonderful--always willing to catsit... so it never hurts to spoil her babies along with mine.

I bought one of these toys for my cat a couple of years ago and he can't live without it. It's by far his most favorite toy he's ever owned. -- GP

My kitties loved the cat nip so much I had to buy them more. -- MB

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the Hot Cat Toy from your catalog. I should say - my cats are thrilled with it! I was so impressed that I raved about the quality and durability of the Hot Cat at work, and we all just collectively placed another order for more of them. My own Feline-Americans have been obsessed with this toy since it came out of the box, and my co-workers look forward to providing their own kitties with the same excitement. Thanks so much for offering this product! The rest of the catalog is great too, but that's the stuff for another email' -- MB

This cat toy is wonderful! My cats played and chased it so much that they actually ate a hole in it and I had to cut it in half and sew it together so that they could have it back! Thanks so much for providing a toy that makes my cats deliriously happy!!' -- CS, Omaha, NE

Her cat really loves this toy! He is 15 years old. He acts like a kitten with it. -- MRl

Far and away, the most played-with, rolled-on, wrestled-with and enjoyed catnip toy we've found for our feline friends. Read more...

The secret, we think, is two-fold: 1 1/2 cups of certified organically grown #1 quality catnip leaf and flower - not the ''toy grade'' stuff (sticks and stems) found in most other toys. Even we olfactory gland-challenged humans can smell the difference right through the bag it comes in! The other reason Hot Cats are such a hit is their shape: 4 connected links (as in a 15'' strand of sausages). Don't ask. Cats love being able to pretend it's a just-caught snake, I guess.

If your cat is a catnip fan (20-30% of cats have a natural immunity and couldn't care less about it), then do something loving for that fine furry friend who thinks you're the greatest no matter what mood you're in and give him or her a Hot Cat.
